Recipe in Cues Workflow (at speed)

  • Hi All,


    Want to start with saying I’m loving the new 1.7 release.


    Does anyone have any experience with programming a complete show with recipes in cues? I use a series of macros in order to achieve a faster approach to populating cue recipe lines with presets and group information,


    In my opinion I feel there is one last piece missing of the perfect recipe workflow which is the ability to store programer input directly to recipe lines.


    Its almost impossible to build looks and store as recipes (at speed) using the current approach. Just having a store option to store as recipe would be a complete game changer.


    Would love to hear other peoples thoughts on this,

    Morgan

  • Agree

    I would like to see an option to populate recipe lines with the group, preset and ma tricks selection of the current active values in presets or cues.


    The new ‘make recipe’ function is nice but creating a ‘traditional’ recipe from the current programmer is the dream.

  • I think its really helpfull to store the programmer directly to a preset.

    I think it is possible to create a plugin for this. Finding which atribute is a what value/preset is easy.


    But the challenging part is to find the grouping/ fixture data. If you select group x and choose a red preset. I think its impossible to retrieve the group x.

    Exactly that, its the retrieval of the group which is tricky from a plugin / macro perspective.
