Set Input Value via Timeline

Hi Everyone, 

 

I'm wondering if anyone can help - i'm not sure if Watchout can do this. 

 

Is there a way to set an input value on a timeline?

 

For example, if i have a MIDI Control input, can i set this value from the timeline somehow?

I could not find any way to do this.

 

Thanks,

Rob

There is no built in way for a cue on a timeline to do this,

but it can be done. Basically you have WATCHOUT send IP commands to itself.

Setup an output device whose TCP/IP IP address is 'localhost',

 i.e. 127.0.0.1

Set the port at 3039 for cluster use, or 3040 for production computer use.

Then use the standard command set as appropriate

(Appendix D for production, Appendix E for cluster mode).

Don't forget to put a carriage return ($0D) at the end of each command's string.

You need to send the authenticate 1 and then the appropriate setInput command.

I break the authenticate and the command into separate cues so I can control their timing.

Thanks JFK - that makes sense - i'll try that. 

 

I'm trying to implement the solution for seamless exit of a loop that you provided a response to previously - and got stuck at this point.

 

Thanks,

Rob
