Question on Paths..

MisebeamMisebeam Registered User
When I create, or update a cue, the path will show up with "Linear..."

So when I go and play back the cue, it dose not fade anything. I have to click on the path and click on Linear (or what ever else path I chose) and then say okay.

Why does it do this with the " path..."?

    Anybody have any Ideas?

    I Also noticed that before I change a cue the path will say "Linear". If I change a time parameter in a cue, the path of "Linear" changes to "Linear..."

    Does this mean I have to select the path every time? Or is there a way to default it?

    Unless otherwise specified in the programmer, when you record a cue into the console, the cue get's recorded using the default path from the fixture's library definition for all the parameters recorded into the cue. This is generally Linear for continuous parameters and Start for slotted parameters. However, since these are the default values we only show a dash (-) in the cuelist window to indicate all parameters recorded in the cue are using their default paths. Once one of any of the parameters recorded into the cue is changed, then we begin to show a list of the different paths in the cue or in some cases dots (...) to indicate multiple paths.

    Well that explains it!, I was looking through the manual, but could not find out why the paths kept changing, or multple path information. Thanks for the info!!
