Recording and Updating Cues - Cue Only vs Tracking
Hi all,
I was wondering when recording or updating a cue if there was a button or function in the Chimp 100 or 300 (software version 1.11) to select what type of record you are trying to achieve. For a better explanation, here is an example of what I’m referring to:
I am recording or have recorded in tracking mode and we go back through a sequence and the director or lighting designer has decided they want to make one light change color for one cue only for a particular effect that they have just decided on the spur of the moment. How do I record or update this cue so that it only makes the change for this cue only, without then tracking through to the rest of the cues?
And vice versa if I was recording in Cue Only Mode and wanted to track an update of something through a series of cues?
I hope that explains what I am trying to do well enough. I am very new to the Chimp and have more of a background with ETC consoles. Hopefully there are also some people who are familiar with ETC consoles as well as Chimp, that might know what I am trying to do with this record/update function.
Any help that can be given will be greatly appreciated.
We do not do "Cue Only" at the moment.

If you are in "Non-Tracking" obviously, as there is no tracking, you would have to record multiple Cues. Easiest way to do so is to Select the Cuelist and Record Cues with their number (I.e. Record Cue 1 thru 20).
