Hi all,

I'm trying to schedule the light macros to cue halfway through a single file opera. I've converted the intermission times provided to us into seconds, and tried popping in the offset from both the 'Start' and from the 'End' of the Feature segment in Show Templates.

However, the behaviour I'm seeing is a little odd - the SPL being generated is causing these lighting commands to cue either from Black Mos generated at either the beginning or the end of the file (depending on whether I've attempted from 'Start' or 'End' of feature), and not actually attaching itself to the file itself if that makes any sense whatsoever. I'd ideally like to attach it similarly to how the credit offset works, with the macro being attached to the feature so it cues while it's still playing.

Am I missing an important step here? Is it to do with the 'Assignment' selection or checking/unchecking 'Auto-Marker' in Show Templates? Any advice would be much appreciated!

Have you tried adding the cues when creating the playlist? The same way you do end credit offsets.
