Override group masters?

Postby djsky » 25 Jul 2020, 08:55

Is there a way to override group masters?

For example, I set my group masters to 50pc on a fader, but want a different flash button (not the group masters one) or playback button to bring those fixtures to 100pc dimmer with a colour or shape.

You can flash and unflash an arbitrary group master with a macro. Additionally you can fire that colour or shape playback with a macro, possibly the very same macro. So, yes, it's possible.

So to fire a macro at the same time the cue would have to be a cue list rather than just a cue? Or can I fire a macro along with a simple cue?

Fade out times would be a problem then no?

As for the separate Cue: I'd also fire this through the macro. Thus, a normal cue would do, and you'd simply place the macro onto your handle. Fade Out times: should work on the group albeit I've not yet tried this. It would work for the extra cue tho.

You can give me a shout at s.beutel@trendco.de and we work out the details.

I just tried it and it works as expected, like this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<avolites.macros>
  <macro id="wiki.Macros.FireFlash" name="fire pb 10 and group 100">
    <description>Flashes PB 10. flashes group 100</description>
    <start>
      <step>Playbacks.FlashTimedPlayback("cueHandleUN=10")</step>
      <step>Group.FlashFaderTimed(userNumber:100, true)</step>
    </start>
    <end>
      <step>Playbacks.ClearFlashTimedPlayback("cueHandleUN=10")</step>
      <step>Group.FlashFaderTimed(userNumber:100, false)</step>
    </end>
  </macro>
</avolites.macros>


This requires Titan v13 to work (not sure about v12). Also, you need to MOVE it onto your handle. Copying the macro will break it.
