Antwort auf: Time between macro’s steps

Hello Alex,

there is no “sleep” or “wait” command in escript. All commands from one macro are executed when the macro is finished.

Two ideas to help you:
1) create a cuelist with some (DMX-empty) cues. Set those cues to have Control time of 30sec. As Action#1 use Call Macro > macro1 (for cue1 and macro2 for cue2, …)

2) run the macro(s) secondly (or each frame) and use global variables to create a state-machine.
Tiny example: a global variable “status” is 1 as long as macro1 shall execute. In macro1 first check is “if (status != 1) exit;”

hope that helps,
