Hello All

When I play all scenes from a movie or run a script of songs from multiple concerts, every time one scene ends and before next scene starts or one song ends and next song starts lights come up and go down. I think this is as a result of the system giving feedback to C4 via pause and play. My C4 is programmed to turn on and off lights to 25% when pause button is pressed. Is there a way to only make lights turn on if the pause is over 10 or 12 seconds. If less that that time, it should not do anything with light. Transitions don’t take more than 6 or 8 seconds and 12 would be plenty.

I already messaged my dealer, but want to see if this is even possible.

Cheers

I think it is not a “pause” but a “stop/start” between scenes. The delay is how long it takes for the next scene to buffer and start playing. I am not sure what your C4 is doing but it is going to take something different than just a delay.

I am okay with the delay. My C4 turns on my lights as if pause is pressed and when next scene starts turns off the light. I want to see if that can be delayed.

I would change the C4 programming from Strato play/pause status to actually pressing the pause button on the remote to trigger the lights. I have my system programmed off the remote button push of pause. First press pauses the video and second press of the pause button triggers Intermission and lights come up.

Thanks. I have reached out late in the evening to my dealer. He is very responsive and this should be sorted soon.

It can be done as I do it for my Crestron system but in a slightly different way. I actually have a script watching mode and a “day” mode whereby I can trigger that option and the light control is essentially turned off while engaged. I also have it turn off every night just to make sure the next time I sit down it’s back to normal.
