Fader Tab

Cue List Fader Mode

Sets how the cue list fader behaves.

Fader Mode Intensity Kill With OffThe fader masters the overall HTP level and the cue list remains active (connected) even when the fader is lowered to zero.
Fader Mode Intensity Kill At 0The fader masters the overall HTP level and the cue list is killed when the fader is lowered to zero.
Manual CrossfaderThe fader behaves as a manual crossfade control, and the cue list will automatically step on to the next cue when the fader begins travel from top or bottom.

When the fader is in Manual Crossfader mode:

  • A running fade can be "captured" onto the fader for manual control by matching the fader position.
  • When firing a cue list in manual crossfade the intensity snaps to full when the fader leaves zero.
  • Shapes and Pixel Mapper effects will fade in with the manual crossfade, but when the fader returns to 0 they are not removed so may still affect the output.
  • Autoloads in the cue list will use their programmed fade times, regardless of the manual crossfade performed by the fader.
  • Partially completed crossfades can be completed by pressing Go.

Fire First Cue

Sets whether the first cue automatically fires when the fader is raised, or if you need to press the Go button to fire it.

Effects Tab

All options are the same as for cues, see Effects.

Release Tab

The Cue Options which could be set here in previous versions are now set using the Playback View window, press View/Open then the select button for the playback. You can edit cue settings directly in the grid.
