I’m trying to decide on the best way to approach my latest project. Hoping you can give me some suggestions.
I have 10 LED screens, spread across 3 outputs.
I have to create:
Look 1: 10 individual clips (1 per LED screen)
Look 2: 10 individual clips (1 per LED screen)
Look 3: 1 clip spread across all screens.
I need to trigger Look 1, so all 10 layers are cue’d up and ready to go. When I fade them up (all together) they all start to play at once, in sync.
While this is playing, I need to trigger Look 2 (in preview), all cue’d up and ready to go. When I fade these up, they all start to play at once (in sync), over the top of Look 1.
I will then need to stop Look 1.
While this is playing, I need to trigger Look 3 (in preview). when I fade this up, it goes over the top of Look 3.
I will then need to stop Look 2.
This will be the basis for lots more looks I’ll need to create.
It’s an awards night, and each look will be setup for each segment of the awards.
My 1st thought is to create Layers 1-10 in group 1, Layer 11-20 in group 2, layers 21-30 in group 3, etc…
This would give me the single group fader far all 10 clips in group 1, etc…
Would i then use a group of 10 cues (in the cue list) to assign clips 1-10 to layers 1-10??
I’m sure this is quite a common setup for awards shows.
Anyone have any insights or suggestions of how to approach this?
thanks very much in advance.
