Must have missed that button

Recommended Posts

Still learning every time I finish a new sequence, this afternoon I completed the most complex sequence I have ever attempted. After I completed it I saved it, and hit the play button and went outside to admire my work. After 6 minutes the sequence stopped, I went back inside and checked my settings. Made sure the total length of show was set to run the time length that I wanted. I could not find anything wrong so hit the play button and the sequence started again from the beginning. Same result at 6 minutes, tried several times with the same result. Gave up and decided to move forward, set a show in show editor and scheduled the show using the same sequence. The sequence came on as scheduled a still running 2 1/2 hours later. Wonder what I missing. 

Thanks & hope you shows are up and running.

Bob

In show editor you are probably checking the box to continuously play and in SE it only plays once unless you tell it to loop at end.

I think I know what's going on, but I've been wrong before...,,.

when playing a sequence with SE, don't use the play button (the play arrow) instead, use the drop down menu ( I'm not at a computer and can't remember exactly which) play and select play sequence from start or play entire sequence-it says something along those lines. 

I experience the same thing, stops around half way. Use the drop down menu and it should play all the way.

Little confused here. Was 6 minutes not the total time of what you sequenced?

Thanks for the reply and no it was sequenced to run 1.5 hours.

Thanks, for the tip, I will try it this evening,

I didn't ask what the show length of 1.5 hours is. I asked what was the total length of the sequence? You said 6 minutes but it stopped.

When you hit the play button, you are playing the sequence, not the show.
