This explains the functional steps within the sequence. For all the other XML details please refer to Formats and syntax

  • ActionScript.SetProperty(“Playbacks.Editor.SelectedPlayback”, handle:“Location=Playbacks,1,1”) selects a particular playback based on its Location
  • Playbacks.Editor.CueSelection.SelectCueByNumber(handle:“Location=Playbacks,1,1”, 3) selects a particular cue of a playback and brings it into the editor
  • ActionScript.SetProperty(“Playbacks.Editor.Times.CueFadeInTime”, time:2.5) finally sets the fade-in time to the value. time:2.5 tells the parser what to do with the number 3, i.e. parse it as time value.

How to use it

  • while it's well possible to create some macros to set some playbacks to a given fade-in time, it does make more sense to integrate this into a bigger context like Create Workspaces in order to setup a known show environment.
