Hello,

Is it possible to automaticly set a playbutton inactive after certain period of time?
Say: i have an electric beamer screen and this screen takes 30 seconds to come down.
After that 30 secs i want the cue to stop automaticly because i can not activate both outputs onn the switchpack (screen up and screen down) at the same time..

Dear Daniel,

You can do this by creating a cuelist, and using the 'Follow' and 'Halt' modes for the two cues. See the attached image.

Create cue 1 with the switchpack ON.
Create cue 2 with the switchpack OFF.

Good luck!

Thanks!

But i have found another way.

I have bundled the 2 buttons, then it's not possible to select both buttons at the same time.
Also i have set the releasetime on the cue's to 30 secs and deselected the loop.

Then thay become inactive in 30 seconds..
