Set up scene for changing parameters globally for touring

  • Hello everybody.

    I have a show with 10 different scenes and I'm going on tour with a play.
    I'm using some masks and some positions on content which I need to change on every location.
    What is the best solutions to do this?
    Is it to build up a setup scene and use the broadcaster/listener actors? In that case I need to activate all scenes to make the changes?.
    Or is it a better way to do this?
    It would be great to setup all the positions and the different masks I been using on every location in a setup scene and the changes where globally for the total project.

  • i did something similar on tour earlier this year. i set up my masks in a User Actor, so the content of every scene went into a 'Croprojector' which was basically a bunch of masks and a projector.

    i also had a setup scene with a Background Actor feeding into the Croprojector. in each location i used the setup scene to tweak the masks, then updated the User Actor and the masks worked for every scene.

  • Take a close look at the Data Array actor. Depending on how similar your scenes are, you could create one scene and a different text file for each set of location specific parameters

  • I do this all the time and a user actor is definitely the way to go.

  • Same for me, allways did this with a user actor and a calibration scene.

  • Thanks guys.
