Just a thought as I was learning how to use the cuelists...

It would be a neat feature if you could give different colours to each cue - so that when you look at the cuelist, you can surround a cue in say a red box to make it stand out. It means you could "highlight" each of the cues that need manual operator response, and allow these cues to stand out from mark cues and any other automatic cues that don't require the operators attention.

Different colours would also mean you could highlight cues that need to be relooked at after a performance run.

I work in theatre by the way, so very interested in working with cuelists! And if there is a way to do what I've just said and I haven't found it yet - please let me know!

Hi Andrew

To highlight cues that need to be relooked at after a performance run, I currently just use the Notes field in the cue list - might work for you also.

Good idea for that point, I didn't even think of that!
Thanks!

It would be great to be able to re colour different things, especially the Palettes Window!
Being able to change the colour of custom groups, Dynamic Presets etc would be great for quick location while programming / running the show live!

I want to bring up again this request. Also in the performance window coloured cuelists would be very helpfull. Even better a colour/ icon dialog, where i can select a user icon. So i.e. my gobo cuelist could show me exactly the used gobo. My colour cuelist could show me the colour... A Prisma is also easy to show by an icon...

 

Best regards

This idea is on the list of longer term ideas to be added to Clarity.

I'm glad it is on the "list". We also do a lot of theatre so I also use the note field a lot for the cue lists. I helps for now, but colors will be great as we mark the script green for curtian up or down, blue for the stage floor lift up or down, and the dozen other things that we do for a production.

If it Ain’t Broke Fix It! Take fast, and make it faster. Take smart, and make it brilliant. Believe that no matter how well you do something, you can always do it better and chances are you will.
