(using 3.0.0 build 389)
i've got a problem with background macros
for example i have a show with 3 cues
in cue 1 is channel 1 at full 2 and 3 at 0
in cue 2: 1@0 2@full 3@0
in cue 3: 1 and 2 @ 0 and 3@full
i'm in cue 2 and type Group cue @ 50 enter, channel 2 is now at 50%
i build a macro with group cue @ 50 enter and change the macro to background mode and run it
now channel 1 is at 50 %
GO into next cue 3
type group cue @ 50 enter; channel 3 is now 50%
start the macro, channel 1 is at 50 %
it seems user 0 ("the background mode user") is still standig in the first cue.
there are no differents how i came to cue 2, Go; GotoCue; GotoCue complete.
everytime user 0 use the first cue of the cuelist (verified in Tab99)
Bug or feature???
mapping of the master playback cuelist is on a per user basis.
i tested with user 1 go for cue 2
change to user 2 and group cue @ 50 changed channel 2
both user cuelists know the cue which is live
and how can i change the master playback cuelist for user 0? i think, i can't!
we used a similar macro to power off unused hmis.
group with all hmis - group cue 1/Last thru enter lamp off
this worked since 2 years with 2.9 and also since 3.0, but if we used gotoCue complete, group cue 1/last is the first cue in the cuelist in spite of the cue before the cue in live (in the background macro, typing it manual it is like expected)
Hi Dirk, apologies for the delay. I took a look at this yesterday, and what you are trying to accomplish is not possible in a background Macro for more than one cue list, and mostly successful for a single list (Cue List 1).
Group Cue 1/ Last Next @ 50 Enter
(Beware this will not work for the first cue in your list.)
I am writing this up for the Development Team to review.
