Description

Recording Streaming Cues

The Record Stream command begins recording (or re-recording) a streaming cue. As soon as this command is executed, a stream recording of the CueServer’s DMX output will begin. Use the Record Stop command to stop recording the stream.

If no streaming cue with the cue number exists, a new streaming cue will be created. If a cue with the cue number already exists, it will be deleted first and replaced with an entirely new streaming cue.

Record Streaming Cue Options

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

Channel n
If this option is used, then channel n is used as a stream recording “trigger channel”. Recording will wait until channel n becomes non-zero. Then, recording will continue until channel n returns to a zero value. This option is useful in situations where a particular channel coming from a DMX source has been programmed to signal the precise beginning and end of a DMX clip to record.

Time t
If this option is used, then the stream will automatically stop recording after t seconds have been captured. If a trigger channel is being used, the timer does not start until the actual recording stream has begun.

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.


Examples

Record Stream 1
Begins recording the current output from the CueServer into Streaming Cue 1.

Record Channel 512 Stream 2
Begins recording the current output from the CueServer into Streaming Cue 2, while using Channel 512 as the channel that will trigger the automatic start and stop of the recording.

Record Time 3.5 Stream 101.5
Begins recording the current output from the CueServer into Streaming Cue 101.5, and the stream will automatically stop recording after 3.5 seconds.

Record Time 15 Channel 1024 Stream 42
Begins recording the current output from the CueServer into Streaming Cue 42, while using Channel 1024 as the channel that will trigger the automatic start and stop of the recording. If the stream is still recording after 15 seconds, it will automatically stop.

Record Stop
Stops recording the Streaming Cue.
