Embeding Chases into Cues?

rhdgsrhdgs Registered User
I am programing on a hog IPC running the HOGII software and I can not seem to figure out how to embed a chase in another cue/cuelist.

I would like to be able to insert a simple dskch chase into a cue list for the show I am working on. Can anyone help?

I know this can be done since this desk has another show in it that I did not program and the channel/s that chase show a value of 100+ in the cue that contains the chase.

I can't seem to find anything in the manuals :(

If anyone can help of point me in the right direction in the manuel that would be very cool

Thanks.

    Randall,

    You can't embed a multi-step chase into another cuelist.

    Your two options for running a chase like this are:

    1) Build the look as an effect and store it as a cue in your main cuelist.

    2) Build the look as a chase in a separate cuelist and trigger it as a virtual cuelist using the >L comment macro from your main list.

    I hope this helps.

    You're very welcome.
    Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or if you need more details about how to set up either of the options above.

    Thanks.

    That was a huge help.
    If you could point me to a place with a more elaborate explanation of how to build simple chase cues with the fx engine that would be cool for future shows but for what I kneed right now I think I am golden.

    Thanks again
