Description

Recording Cues

The Record Cue command records (or re-records) a normal cue.

By default, all channels being output from the CueServer are captured into the new cue. Use the command options to change which channels and what source the channels are recorded from.

If no cue with the cue number exists, a new cue will be created. If a cue with the cue number already exists, it will be deleted first and replaced with an entirely new cue. To re-record just the DMX channels without affecting the other cue parameters, use the Update Cue command instead.


Record Cue Options

Several options are available to change how a cue is recorded. More than one option may be used, and they can be listed in any order.

Empty
If this option is used, then the new cue will be created containing no DMX channels. When this cue is played back, it will have no affect on any DMX channels, but it will still behave like a normal cue with follow timing and rules.

Selected
If this option is used, then the new cue will be created containing only the currently selected DMX channels. Using this option, cues can be created that only affect specific channels when being played back.

Active
If this option is used, then the new cue will be created containing only the currently active DMX channels. Using this option, cues can be created that only affect specific channels when being played back. When recording the DMX output or input, active channels are any channels that have a non-zero value. When recording from one of the Playbacks, active channels are any channels active in the playback (including zero value channels).

Input
If this option is used, then the new cue will be recorded by using only values from the DMX Input. The playback faders and DMX output will not be recorded.

Playback n
If this option is used, then the new cue will be recorded by using only values from the specified playback fader. The DMX input and output will not be recorded.

Stack s
If this option is used, then the new cue will be recorded into Stack s. This option overrides the stack chosen in the current playback fader.
