Hey all!

Quick question...

 

I have a macro that is attached to a cue.  I would like the macro to start a different cue list (mapped to a fader wing).  Everything works fine accept the cue list on the fader wing is set as an intensity master.  This means that the cue goes and the intensity stays wherever the fader is.  

 

Is there a way to trigger the cue list so the fader or intensity master goes up at the same time as the cue list is triggered from the macro?  I would love to be able to do this without having to touch the fader.

 

Let me know!  Thanks:)

I'm a little confused by your description since the fader is either an I-master or a Cue master but I don't think it can be both.

Assuming it is a Sub declared as an I-master that happens to be storing a single cue, you would have to add [Sub]x[At]level[Enter] to your macro script to set a level.

The cue list is set as an intensity master.  It is not a sub.

Thanks, I just learned something new.

Sorry I don't know the answer since there doesn't seem to be a way to specify a level on a manual override of a cue, or on a GoToCue, nor can I find a programmatic way to move a fader. Hopefully, somebody else has an answer.

Same problem I seem to be having...Thanks for giving it a shot though!:)

 

 Anyone else?

Is there any reason why you are using a macro and not executing a cue instead?

Unless I am mistaken executing a cue would have the same problem.  I was hoping there might be some language I could use to tell the ION to put the actual intensity master of the cue list at full as well as telling the cue to go.

I'm unsure as to what you want to achieve. If you want the intensity fader to be at full, then why are u assigning it to a fader in the first place?
