Store options and Store preferences

When cues or presets are stored there are some options that will be used.

Each user can have their own preferred options.

During the store it is also possible to add commands that will use a specific set of store options.

In this topic the options regarding storing cues are described. Some of these options will impact how other cues will respond. Elements regarding tracking are described in the What is Tracking topic.

 

Temporary Store Options

The store options can be opened as a temporary version.

This is done pressing and holding the Store key for approximately one second.

It appears as a pop-up on the screen above the five dual encoders.

Store Options pop-up showing the current settings

There are four different ares with different settings: Data Source (not implemented yet), Presets, Use Selection, and If not empty.

In the title bar are two buttons. Tap Save Preferences to store the current settings as the new user preferences. Tap Load Preferences to load the stored user preferences values into the store options pop-up. 

Presets

These are the options when storing presets.

They are described in the Create Presets topic or in the other Preset topics.

 

Use Selection

This decides what values, from the source, will be used when storing.

  • Active for selected:
    Stores only all active attributes but only for the fixtures selected in the programmer, also with respect for the source selected above.
  • All for selected:
    Stores all attributes of the fixtures selected in the programmer, also with respect for the source selected above.
  • Active - This is the factory default option:
    Stores the values that are active in the programmer, but with respect for the source selected above.
  • All:
    Stores all attributes for all fixtures.
  • Look:
    Look stores all dimmer attributes and for the fixtures that have a dimmer values above 0 all attributes will be stored.

If not Empty

This defines the store method used if values are stored into an existing cue.

  • Ask - This is the factory default option:
    This means that none of the other options are used and a pop-up asks the user what to do.
  • Overwrite:
    All existing data is deleted and the current source and selection is used to store new values.
  • Merge:
    This will merge the new values into the existing values. New values has a higher priority and will overwrite existing values.
  • Remove:
    This will remove the stored values for the attributes in the source option using the current selection option.
  • Release:
    A special release value is stored. The actual values in the source is not relevant, but the selection is used to define where the release value is stored. 

 

Cue Preferences

There is a set of timing preferences used when cues are created. They can be seen and edited in the Menu->Preferences and Timing.

Here are the general cue timings and the Preset Type timings. Read more about these different timings and what they do in the Cue Timing topic.
