Description

Updating Streaming Cues

The Update 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. Use this command to change the DMX stream stored in a cue without loosing any of the other properties recorded in the cue (such as the follow time, link, and automation rules).

If no streaming cue with the cue number exists, a new streaming cue will be created. If a streaming cue with the cue number already exists, only the cue’s DMX channels will be re-recorded by using this command. All other cue parameters will not be affected.

Update Streaming Cue Options

Several options are available to change how a streaming cue is updated. 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

Update Stream 1
Begins recording the current output from the CueServer as an update to Streaming Cue 1.

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

Update Time 3.5 Stream 101.5
Begins recording the current output from the CueServer as an update to Streaming Cue 101.5, and the stream will automatically stop recording after 3.5 seconds.

Update Time 15 Channel 1024 Stream 42
Begins recording the current output from the CueServer as an update to 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.

Update Stop
Stops updating the Streaming Cue.
