Can I change the timming in between sequences?

Can this be done in Simple Show Builder.

I have 8 sequences playing this year and am going to do the opening voiceover then 4 songs and then closing voiceover. then do opening voiceover and other 4 songs.

I would like to change the time between the opening and closing voiceover.



Thanks,

I experimented with the most effective timing in between sequences last year and found it (at least in my opinion) to be 2 seconds. I started out with 5 seconds and actually saw cars start to pull away in that short space of time, I guess thinking that the show was over. And who says we aren't an impatient generation? When I was viewing the shows before the official opening day, even I found my self wondering when the next song was going to start at the 5 second break but left it that way. I quickly changed it after the shows had been running for a couple of days.

I have never used the show builder, but instead rely on the Show Editor which I find gives me a great deal of flexibility.

I created an animation sequence of 2 seconds, all lights out on all channels and inserted it in between each of my musical sequences in the Show Editor.

Will show builder start the show each night at the time i pick?

Also how does Schedule Editor work?



Thanks


Yes it will. I use the simple show builder. During the week it starts at 6 and ends at 10 and on weekends runs until 11.

I have never used the show editor.

In the Show Editor, on the "Musical" tab, near the bottom right, there's a box labeled "Delay (in seconds)".

I don't think it can be directly done using the Simple Show Builder. You could do it indirectly, though, by creating a sequence without any sound or lights, of the appropriate time length, and putting that into the list.

You can also edit your sequence and add or subtract time at the end of the sequence. I initially set up the show builder for 5 seconds between sequences. However I noticed that the actual time between sequences was more like 10 seconds. When I went to look into the issue, I realized that most of my sequences had 2-5 seconds of dead air time at the end of them because the music tracks had lead out built into them already. I went through all my sequences and adjusted the lead out to 3 seconds and set the show builder to no time between sequences.
