Starting from version 1.01.3 Cuelux has a new feature: “Stacks”

Stacks have been introduced to tackle the problems:
-   How do you start multiple cuelists simultaneously?
-   How do you combine multiple cuelists into one effect?

So a stack is a collection of one or more cuelists. If you run a stack, it will trigger all its cuelists. Stacks will enable us to use cuelists as building blocks for creating larger shows. Stacks will also allow us to quickly trigger complete ‘looks’ on stage.

Multiple stacks can be linked together; creating a “Stacklist”. (Analog to multiple cues in a cuelist.)

How to use stacks?

Adhoc; to trigger multiple cuelists:
- Press the “Stack” button
- Press the “Go” button for each playback that has a cuelist you would like to trigger
- Press the “Stack” button again to trigger the cuelists

Programming; save a stack on a playback.
- Press the “Stack” button
- Press the “Go” button for each playback that has a cuelist you would like to trigger
- Press the “Record” button
- Press the “Go” button on the playback where you like to store the stack. (This could be an empty playback, or a playback already containing a stack; thus building a stacklist.)

Editing; change an already programmed stacklist
- Double click on the “Playback indicator” (the little display above the playback). This will bring up a screen where you can see and change the properties of the cuelist.

this is great. really the right feature to add to this software!!

now all the boring things for you developers (better it is, youll get a better payment) ;)

edit stacklists, remove "stack cues"?
Stacklist fader does not control all the cues intensity? its just start all cue and THOSE cue faders must be att 100%?

maybe it could be linked and the other faders "follows" the same intensity as the stackfader when it triggers? :D 

would also look awesome on the bcf2000 ;)

great work. (cant wait for my cable and bcf2000)

Thanks! I still need to determine the function of the intensity fader on a 'stack' playback. There are few options: setting the cuelists' intensity or work as 'master' to reduce the cuelists' intensity.

hmm. yeah that depends.

if theres just intensity it will work all the time.
if master, it can be a pain when cue faders are not at any value. but it can also be great.

when a stack is stored, cant you store information of where the fader of the cues was, and then recall the active cues?
then use it as a master intensity for those cues.
