cvseq

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious of what others have done with their cvseq files. You know the sequence order of how things go from the moment you tell CinemaVision to start, until it ends. What do you have it do? What things do you show? Does it control lights? More?

 

Personally I set up our cvseq to do the following:

Action: Hue-TriviaLights (Turns 2 lights bright orange, and 2 lights bright yellow, and 4 Lux lights to 80%)

Video: Trivia Intro

Trivia (We play the trivia for 3 minutes)

Action: Hue-CourtesyLights (Turns off the Hue lights, and the Lux lights down to 60%)

Video: Courtesy

Action: Hue-TrailerLights (Turns the front 2 Hue lights on to a soft white to match the Lux lights as they drop down to 25%)

Video: Trailers Intro

Trailer (We play 2 trailers selected from upcoming movies on Apple's list.)

Video: Countdown (This is where the loop comes back to if there are still movies in the queue.)

Action: Hue_FeatureLights (This turns the 2 front Hue lights to a very low and dull blue, and shuts off all other lights.)

Video: Feature Intro

AudioFormat (Most of out movies are in AAC for multiple platform support. We have recently been adding in various Dolby tracks for our new 5.1 system.)

Feature

Command: Skip, Empty, 4 (If there are no more movies, this skips ahead to the last Action in the sequence,)

Action: Hue-CourtesyLights (Same Action as the one listed higher up on the list.)

Video: Intermission (We have a random 10 minute intermission play, so we can take the dog out, make extra popcorn, potty, etc.)

Command: Back, Full, 8 (This jumps back to the Video: Countdown, and everyone in the house yells, "The next movie is starting!")

Action: Hue-SequenceAbort (Turns the lights back to our normal light settings.)

I didn't even think about having it play trailers from both our collection and from upcoming movies in theaters. That is an awesome idea McSwindler. I'm gonna go add that to our sequence.

 

Asking this question to anyone.

We are using Hyperion LED Lighting, is there a bumper out there that says something like "This theater/screen features Hyperion Lighting"? And maybe does some swirling colors or something along the edges to trigger the lights?

I'm sure we could whip something like that up. That's a good idea.
