I need to tweak my show formats for Dunkirk, and it's been just long enough that a few details have been forgotten.

Specifically, in the (Hollywood Software) TCC show templates you assign a mode (JPEG-Flat, JPEG-Scope, 3D JPEG-Scope (2048), etc). These send a cue to the GDC server which triggers a cue to select the projector macro (3D_FLAT_1998, DCI_XYZ_FLAT, etc). The problem is I can't remember where the translation from JPEG-Flat to DCI_XYZ_FLAT happens.

In "Title Mapping" you get to designate the format of the feature (the TCC normally knows what it is via the CPL BUT you can override that and use one of the "EXTRA" formats.

In the Templates, presuming all of your segments (Trailers, Early Ads...etc.) follow the format of the Feature segment, then the TCC will issue the cue for the format you designated in Title Mapping.

Your server MUST have a mating cue to receive the cue from the TCC and what your server does with that is your server's business (e.g. you'd have to set up a cue/macro within the server to act upon the cue).

If you are asking what the name of the cue is, then Hollywood Software has a sheet that defines all of the cues plus in the release notes from when the Extra cues were added what those cue names are as well.
