Data Strings


Recommended Posts

After some trial and error work, I have managed to set up a data string that will send a TCP-IP command over my network.

I use these cues to open and close the shutters on my projectors allowing me to program exactly when the projector is doused. I simply place the on or off cue for each projector in the main timeline and when the timeline gets to the cue, the projectors change.

What I would like to be able to do, is to open or close the projector manually. If something happens and I need to change the shutters, I would like to have a simple way to do that without affecting the main timeline.

Any thoughts?

Hi Marty!  To expand on Morgan's response, after putting your open and close cues in Auxiliary Timelines, you could then associate the Auxiliary Timelines with MIDI inputs and use a small MIDI keyboard to fire the Auxiliary Timelines as needed.
