With the cue list several cues can be sequenced. This offers you the possibility of organizing the individual cues at an event with predefined expiration time. This module is similarly suitable for theater events and comparable events.

Per cue which takes effect however only within the cue list or an effect a one dazzling time as well as a duration you (describe in the Chasers tool) as hold time can be indicated. Values of a cue remain active on the version until they are overwritten explicitly, for example by another cue.

All cues are managed in the cue library and can be chosen and reused from there.


One or several cues form a cue list. The maximum number of cues per cue list is only limited by the resources of your computer. Playing a cue list means the sequential execution of all individual cues under consideration of the the one dazzling time and duration (hold time). The cues can also manually be further switched. Several cue lists can expire at the same time (parallel operation).

E. g. you use the cue tool at theater applications and everywhere there where it suffices, simple cues after a particular duration (hold time) further add-on. The cue tool works resource loading substantially less than the chaser tool. The cue list is always worked off sequentially and to be more precise as of the cue which is just highlighted. For the beginning of the play, so the first entry must be highlighted.

So that the button « GO & raquo; the manual further wiring can work, the following conditions must be filled for:

  • The cue list must be represented (Button » play « is clicked).
  • The respective cue must have manually as a duration (hold time) (adjust time to zero and one then still reduce tenths). If a duration (hold time) is adjusted, this is taken into account which yes also can be quite practical (to let e.g. a sequence of light atmospheres go with firm times and switch to the next cue manually only later again).
  • The cues must be marked with the checking box (hook), they otherwise are deactivated.

At a right click on the cue name opens himself a context menu with the menu item « Set color . . . « a color palette window opens where a color can be selected for the cue name.

 Important Hint If HTP is not necessary, so HTP turn it off in the program settings (depends on the cue definition).
