Hi All, 


Has anybody had problems where by Watchnet (4.2) does not locate to the correct Cue from a script? 


Works fine from a button direct to Watch out (6.2.2).But not from a script? 


Checked for duplicate cues, clears the cache, remade the script, remade the Cue....

Following up,

This project was migrated  from another site (same client, same setup). However it appears that the new installation does not appear to like doing a script with

  • Timeline Control Jump to Cue name AND run. 

really eratic behavour, jumping to a new wrong cue each run of the script

It is more than happy for me however to 

  • Timeline Control Jump to Cue name AND stop
  • Wait a Sec
  • Timeline Control RUN

Hi Shane,

I've tried to reproduce your issue using WATCHNET (1.4) and WATCHOUT (6.2.2) and I cannot get the error you mention. 
If I create multiple named control cues, either on the main timeline or on an auxiliary timeline (task), I can jump between them using either buttons that do it directly or scripts and get the correct results. I cannot see any difference using STOP or RUN together with the jump action.

One thing that I can think of that could cause these issues is if you have multiple control cues with the same name in a timeline. 

Could I ask you to send an email to support tagged with WATCHNET and provide links to your shows (both WATCHNET and WATCHOUT) and I can investigate further?
