Tasks not in sync in cluster?

Recommended Posts

I have tasks that triggers clips on 3 separate machines (A/Master, B and C), with a "go to time"-cue for looping. (as the clips shouldn't loop back to the very start)

It happens quite consistently that one of the machines doesn't loop. It's not a single machine, as it sometimes is B and sometimes C that doesn't loop, depending on the task. (so it is a consistent error)

Is this a known problem? Are there any workarounds? How do I troubleshoot?

Watchout 6.6 running on Watchpax 4.

Haven't seen this for 10 years or so. Back then it could happen if too many control cues would sit at the same time in a timeline.

What is controlling your cluster?

Have you tried to loop back to a named cue instead of jumping to a time? It's my preferred way to loop sonce you can easily adjust it by just moving the "target" cue.

It's a single control cue.

The cluster is being controlled by TCP commands from a control system. (RTI)

No, but I'm gonna try it the next chance I get. Thanks! Seems buggy that it should make a difference though...

I'm not saying that using a cue instead of a time to jump to is safer but that is what we normally use and we have not seen a situation where the loop didn't work. It's still worth a try I guess.
