Overview

The Stage View shows the output channels of the CueServer. This view is arranged in a grid of channels. Controls within the window change the visible layer of the channel grid between the device’s Output, one of the Playbacks, or the Input. Various colors indicate the source of each channel value and/or the state of the channel.

While cues are running and/or channels are fading, they will update live within this view. The channels are colored to match the display color for each Playback Fader. In the example above, the Blue channels are coming from Playback 1 and the Green channels are coming from Playback 2.

The area behind the odd-numbered channels from 41 through 49 are shaded in Gray to indicate that these channels are currently selected.
