Hi!

 

I'am using TCP commands to control Production computer.

I got 4 cues (Movie 1,Movie 2...) when i'am starting each one every time between cues there is black

Screen for 1sec.

Is there any way to jump between cues without black screen?

 

PS my Watchout ver 5.5.1

 

Thank You

Simple answer is no.

 

The function you desire may be achieved in another way

by using auxiliary timelines.

 

Depending on the number of called cues needed,

you may be able to keep them all loaded (paused)

for immediate access without the black interval.

 

An inactive auxiliary timeline (stopped)

 will still need time to load when asked to play from the stopped state,

the same as jumping within a timeline.

BTW There is no one and only right way to do this, there are a couple of ways, each with their own set of implications.

 

Thank you for reply.

Fitst,how can i do that?)
Every time i'am trying to start one Aux timeline
On another there is a doble sound....
And as far as i know i cannot pause Aux timeline

 

Yes you can.

Ok,i have found the solution.

If you controling Production with TCP/IP commands
You can just send 2 commands at the same time.
One to start specific AUX and second to stop previous one....and jump is clear

 

That will work.


Or you can put the housekeeping in each auxiliary timeline.

i.e. after one timeline starts, add control cues in that timeline

to tell all other timelines to jump to 0 and pause.

Then you can use simple input triggers (MIDI, tcp/ip, etc) to trigger one aux timleine and 

let each aux timeline clean up the others.
