Newbie - Scrub to timestamps and cuelists

Post by Anthrolight »

Hi,

I'm a lighting engineer and new to resolume. I'm looking to run visuals for concerts, but I am a little overwhelmed with where to start, and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for what I am looking to do. I'm currently running this separately from my desk, but looking to eventually include Artnet control.

Currently I run video (before I bought Resolume) as one long clip for each song and jump to specific timestamps if the band are playing faster or slower.

Is there a way to:

a) Create a cuelist of video triggers to start clips or for various commands?
b) Jump to specific timestamps on a clip?

Cheers :)

If you have 1 Videofile per song:
Place all the videos in a layer behind each other.... you can trigger the colloms (extern as well) for each song... also you can have 1 dmx channel controlle the layer and the clips you play.


Controlling the clips:

The quick way to get the behaviour you know would be to use cue points and bpm sync....

bpm sync can be adjust allways and live as well so you also can speed the video a bit and slow it down again, so you dont have ugly "jump cuts" inside the show....
