HC.LookFade request

Post by MickCrozier » Thu Feb 25, 2010 12:33 am

After finding this post dealing with how to use bump fx. I found the BumpLook command in macros not very useful as it snaps the effect on and off.

By using HC.LookFade, times can be manually adjusted to match the cue if desired. But for users with no computer programming skills it's a bit daunting.

Firstly can HC.LookFade be added to the quick macro command editor?

Secondly - Can it be extended to accept a fade seconds of 'cuetime' or 'downtime' to match the currenrt cue?

Not easily as the dialog box would need to be able to display all looks and look pages.

fair enough - time to do some heavy training with people :)

I'm working on some scripts that make the this process of using bump chases on subs a lot faster
Re: HC.lookfade in cue time

What about adding cuetime and downtme to HC.GetProperty?
Then I could do
HC.GetProperty('cue', this_cuelist, this_cuenumber, 'cuetime', 'downtime')
