Hi there, First of all... Very happy with 6.2.1, Im enjoying all the new features and updates to WatchOut. The only problem Ive seen so far is that when I you a Aux Timeline, the fade in on clip do not work.... the clip just seems to snap in. Ive tried running the fade later in the clip as well as applying a pre roll on the clip... non of this makes a difference. Am I the only one with the bug or gas anyone else had the same experience.
In the past, we've always had great luck triggering the main timeline using MSC from our ETC Ion (and before it our Obsession). On this show, I had an element that needed to be triggered on cue, while the rest of the timeline was still running. My solution to this withing Watchout was simply to put this extra element in an Aux Timeline. That's when I started to run into problems with the midi. If I set my "Midi Playlist" setting to "ignore", nothing happens. If I set it to "Map to Main Timeline" I can't trigger the aux timeline. If I set it to "Map to Aux Timelines" I can't trigger the main. My first try was to make a timeline called "1" that had all the midi triggers and it, in turn, trigged the main or aux timeline as appropriate. This was intermittently dropping cues, though. I tried putting all the content in timeline "1" and the extra element in timeline "2" but that was still inconsistent. Has anyone run in to this in the past? Ultimately, this became a convenient way to convince the director that this particular cue was a poor choice, but it is something I would like to be able to do in the future. We're running 5.5.1 on Windows 7sp1 Jim
