Explanation

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

As the Profile IDs of user-defined key profiles are random, te first example might be much more useful than the second: it sets the key profile of one playback to the key profile of another playback:

  • Profiles.GetHandleProfileId(handle:“chaseHandleUN=11047”) retrieves the profile id of the playback with user number 11047.
  • Profiles.AssignHandleProfile(handle:“chaseHandleUN=10555”, …) sassigns this as profile id for another playback

The second example directly sets a profile id - however, as the correct ID cannot be predicted, you'd need to find the correct dd e.g. with this example and manually enter the number in the macro - not very handy.

How to use it

  1. create a chaser with #11047 as dummy playback and set its key profile.
  2. in order to apply this to another chaser re-legend that other chaser to #10555 and fire the macro

The second macro is merely for documentation purposes - you'd need to edit it to match the profile id of your show.
