Description

Use the Stack command to change what cue stack the active playback fader is using.

By default, all cues are loaded from the main cue list. Additionally, the show file may contain one or more cue stacks. The Stack command is used to change which cue stack the playback fader is using. Once the stack has been changed on a playback fader, all cues on that playback will be loaded from that cue stack.

Use the Stack Clear command to return the active playback fader back to the main cue list. Optionally Stack “” can be used to accomplish the same thing.

When switching cue stacks, the first cue in the new stack will automatically become the playback fader’s next cue. Because the Stack command selects the first cue in a cue stack, the Go command can be used to run the first cue in the stack.

Examples

Stack "Surprise"
Sets the active playback fader’s cue stack to the stack named “Surprise”.

Stack "Intro" Go
Sets the active playback fader to use the “Intro” stack and executes the first cue in that stack.

Stack Clear
Sets the active playback fader to use the main cue list.
