Delaying Commands & Pause





I've just started using cinema vision (and can I say how much better it is than cinema experience already , and want to get my lighting set up integrated well.

I use LightwaveRF controlled light switches and sockets in my house and have pretty much gotten them to dim / switch off when a film starts and come on when it ends.

There are two things I'd like to be able to do but am struggling with given my lack of knowledge of pretty much anything without a GUI.

1) Due to the central hub of my LightWaveRF system being quite slow I can't send all these commands at once as they will get lost and some of the lights won't all turn off / on. I need some way to demand the commands but still want them all to occur after the theatre intro / before trailer.

2) I'd love to be able to have the lights come on and off when the film is paused and then unpaused , i tried to use commands to do this in cinema vision but can't work it out yet again.

If anyone can help with either of these issues I'm having it would be greatly appreciated !

There is a sleep command which will wait x amount of milliseconds before running the next command, it's syntax is sleep://500, which will wait for half a second (there are 1000 milliseconds in a second).

In the cinema vision settings there is an option to specify an action file to run when paused or on resume. It's under the Actions tab, there is also an option to run an action when the sequence is aborted.  

Once you get the action timing worked out, the same action files should work for pausing and resuming.


Hope that helps :)
