Cues

So you've set up a great look on the stage, and you want to save it to use in your show.

There are four ways of recording your lighting on Titan.

Cue: This is a single look. It may contain movement in the form of shapes, and have fade in and fade out times.
Chase: This is a timed sequence of cues, often used for an individual effect.
Cue List: This is a linked sequence of cues, usually used to store and replay an entire show or an element of a show from a "go" button.
Timeline: This is a timed sequence of playbacks which would usually be used to replay a complex cue sequence to a piece of recorded music or a timecoded show.

Chases, Cue Lists and Timelines are covered in more detail in the following chapters.

When a Cue, Chase or Cue List is stored on a control, the control is called a Playback. You can store in several places:

  • On any fader handle - the fader controls the intensity of fixtures (you can make the fader control other things using playback Options).

  • On a Virtual fader in the Virtual faders window on the touchscreen. This works exactly like a physical fader.

  • On a touch button in the Playbacks window - you can set whether the button latches or flashes the cue using Key Profiles

  • On a Macro/Executor button - again you can use Key Profiles to set latch or flash

If you run out of faders to store playbacks, fader wings are available for all consoles to add more faders.

Titan's cue functions are very powerful; the first part of this section explains the basics of how the console uses cues.
