Adding A Channel

Recommended Posts

After what I thought I had been very careful changing my channels this year I missed one. It is on the first of 15 controllers' if I right click where the channel goes I can add a channel.
My question is will this automatically move all the rest of the channels down one & set the ID correctly or do I need to just redo the total channels.

Thanks Mike

Mike, if you want to add a channel, go to the channel either above or below where you want to add and right click then it gives you the option to add the channel above or below and even a group of channels.

You can add a channel anywhere you want. It doesn't matter what order they are in.

Be sure to manually enter that one channel into every sequence you plan on using, then name and address it accordingly. The shifted channels will keep their name and location.

If you save your channel configuration and import them to other sequences it will keep the sequencing but shift channels down one.

I think the question is more of a assigning to the controller question than a sequence editor question. Once I went back and reread the question. I am not sure how an ID can be left out  but I guess he did. I know if you go under "Tools" Then "Channel Configuration" You can add a controller or channel then assign the channel a unit number and a circuit number. This might be what he was looking for. I first thought he just needed to add another Channel to his sequence but if it never got assigned then this is where he needs to go. Maybe? Just trying to help but someone let me know if I am wrong or misunderstood the question.

 



You're wrong. It has nothing to do with assigning an ID. It's about channel shifting and commands.

A channel can be added without assigning an ID. Look at this one and tell me what you see: http://tinyurl.com/hclconfig

John nailed it correctly.

I know that but look at the original question. That is why I said what I said because I think the question itself was either wrong or is confusing. "My question is will this automatically move all the rest of the channels down one & set the ID correctly or do I need to just redo the total channels."

Actually, there was nothing at all confusing about the OP's question, at least not to those of us who've added channels to our displays from year to year.

But as an aside, this is another excellent example of issues that will no longer be an issue by using a master track/sequencing track setup.

Let me see if I can clear up the original question.
Here is what I did:
controller 1 Channel 12 Mega tree Clear, I over looked this channel when I did my new Ch. configuration. Now I want to add it in. So I right click at that location & select add Ch. below, great done but did all the Ch. below add 1 so there are not two number 12.

Mike -

When you insert a channel into an existing track, all the following channels simply move down one line. Their controller assignments and sequencing remains unchanged.

The only way there would be two #12's is if there was already one hiding somewhere that you didn't notice.


You can also check things out by creating a quick show using any up-to-date sequence and then running the Verifier.
