Timeline problem

    I was having a little problem recently....

    1 show, 1 module, 3 scenes. I need to drag an effect out across the whole timeline - it is TTL/DMX for shutters - in this show they are the same the whole way through.

    First scene, no problem, when you hit the end Showtime tells you that you exceeded 100% of scene length and you adjust until it's right then drop the effect.

    Same with second scene.

    On third scene (last, remember) if I drag too far I get no warning, also even if I back up and drop the effect end inside the end of the scene timeline, Showtime still "bumps" my whole timeline and messes up all my cues - and I mean ALL of them, the whole show! I can get it back by UNDOing the last action, but it is still a BIG nuisance.

    Any help, or am I just being really stupid?

    Hi Andy,

    I really can't understand what you mean, but I find it difficult to discuss visual phenomenon using only words. Please send your SHOW file to Pangolin and we can take a look and tell you what is happening.

    Really there should never be any "100%" issues, if you have Showtime in the "Automatic adjust" mode. It is in that mode by default.

    But again, I would like to take a look at your show file before giving further comments. Please contact us to send your show file. Use our Contact form at: http://www.pangolin.com/contact

    Best regards,

    William Benner
