JG Posted June 3, 2014 Report Share Posted June 3, 2014 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 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
