Let’s imagine that the programmer is cleared.
I select a few fixtures of the same type and set some parameters. Intensity 100%, color red.
I record this to a Playback button.
Now, I want to add more fixtures to what I already see. So, while the red lights are at 100%, I add two more fixtures and bring them up to 100%, color blue.
I press record, and click a 2nd Playback button. Now I have two scenes. In the third scene, I want the red lights to go to zero, so I take them out and record a third playback.
So here’s where I’m confused. When I click the first playback, the red lights fade in at the default 2.5s. When I click the 2nd playback, the first playback remains on and the 2nd one fires off and the blue lights come in. When I click the 3rd playback button, it fires off but nothing changes because the first cue is still running.
If I create each scene individually, clearing the programmer every time, it behaves differently, whereby each playback button disables the previous. Sometimes, however, they’ll run concurrently. I can’t figure out what conditions yield each scenario.
I suspect it has something to do with embedded settings from a previous cue? But even then, I’m a bit confused.
So what is the correct procedure to create a sequence of cues that build upon one another?
