The CueScheduler move works pretty well and is actually quite e-z!
Method for two segments, 3 cues each:
- Segment one scheduler "A"
- Segment two scheduler "B"
- Set up a cue scheduler per segment (I.e. target "Start Cues in Range" start row "1" end row "1" start column "1" end column "3")
- Turn off "Schedule" and select "Automate" (if you want to manually trigger rather than TOD)
- While in Scheduler A, make sure Scheduler B is off (turn off the layer control, top left of panel)
- To switch to Segment B, turn off the Scheduler A layer
- The only tricky part is switching from one segment to another segment. You want to switch in the middle of a cue so you don't have multiple crossfades happening simultaneously. Not ideal, but works.
Note that you do NOT activate the global play control to auto-advance. The cue scheduler does it all. Using the global play button will cause all kinds of chaos.
However, you can manually advance or go back within your active scheduler by just triggering the cue via the cue bank. If you trigger a cue from another segment, it will play it for its duration and then return to the active scheduler.
Can repeat for as many segments as you need.
@Mad-Matt quick question - there's a drop down to select a "Cue Bank" but I can't find any documentation about secondary Cue Banks?
