Controlling Isadora via ETC Ion
I had a lot of trouble finding a way to get the current cue from our ion to trigger cues on Isadora.
I found lots of posts for controlling the ion via Isadora, but not as much vice versa.
I so badly wanted to get the fire cue osc command to be the trigger for Isadora but each cue had a unique string so I couldn't really figure out how to get the cue number from that sting. It the cue fire command had a null string.
After looking through the strings being sent, it seemed that "/eos/out/active/cue/text" was the key that I needed. with that I was able to pull the cue number and get a percentage complete.
So I was able to make an osc actor that had in input for a cue to listen for and when the active cue was equal to the target cue it sent out a trigger, in my case to jump to the next cue. I am going to further change it so the fade time is also a published input.
I hope I explained my process well enough. I attached a picture of the actor.
