Mark Cue's not updating

somethingbritesomethingbrite Registered User
I am using Hog II OSv3.4 (178) ROM Lib:v5.4 and I am having trouble with Mark Cues.

As I understand from the manual if I insert a Mark Cue and then subsequently change something in the Cue that it is Marking then the Mark Cue itself should update. This is not happening.
Most of the changes I am making involve preset focuses, some of these presets I can actually change the focus itself and that works, however I also need to add some extra preset focuses to these Cues and the Mark Cue's do not reflect the additional information. Indeed the Mark Cue's seem to remain totally unchanged. This is also true if I delete the markk Cue and Instert a new one.
(an example of this would be Lamps 201 > 204 have Preset Focus "Wash" in Q 10. Lamps 201 and 204 are then refocused to a new position and this new position is called "Therapy1" However in the Mark Cue the preset remains as "Wash" The Mark Cue is deleted and a new one "Inserted" yet the information in the new Mark Cue is exactly the same as the information in the old Mark Cue i.e. 201 and 204 still have Preset "Wash" even though the new position in Cue 10 is "Therapy1" for both of these fixtures.)
In addition to not being able to Update or Merge "Mark" Cue's this means that I am having to build additional Mark Cue's manually or suffer live movement of fixtures that I would rather have moving in darkness.

has anybody seen this? Is it a software version thing? Is there a workaround?

Also, I have noticed recently that not ALL of my Cues are Highlighted once they have been triggered in "Contents" I'm not sure if this is a problem and have never noticed it before, but its just wierd to scroll down the Cue list then see "unHighlit" Cues that have already been passed in the list.

Any help or thoughts would be very much appreciated.

    Hello, do the fixtures you are trying to Mark have the Intensity at 0%? If the Intensity is greater than 0, the fixtures do not observe the Mark function.

    I have tried all of the examples you have listed and I am not seeing the problem.

    You cannot Edit Mark Cues, instead of merging into a Mark cue, just delete the original Mark Cue, and make another.

    Many people prefer to manually make Mark Cues, this way they control everything in the Mark Cue. They can number and can it as they wish.

    Hi. Cheers for the reply.
    Yes, the fixtures generally have a positive intensity in the Cue following the Mark Cue. Maybe this is one of the issues.
    In the past I have generally built my own Mark Cue's, however this is a show that I have taken over and it would appear that all the Mark Cue's have been generated automatically.
    The solution would probably be to build my own Mark Cues and simply bin the ones that presently exist.

    Hello, I may not have been clear. The fixtures to be marked need to have an Intensity value of 0% in the cue previous to the Mark cue in order for them to observe the Mark function. The cue after the Mark they will need a value greater than 0%.
