Input Link

You can link a Child Cue to a Parent Cue so it runs as soon as an input switch is detected from a Stagehand FX. This can be handy if you have two cues that need to run in close proximity, but require a crew member to give a “Clear” signal for the second cue. In such a case, you could wire a pushbutton to the input of a Stagehand FX. When the Parent Cue runs, the crew member would push the button to start the Child Cue when appropriate.

Click the Add Link button next to the Child Cue.

Select the Parent Cue from the drop-down list and select Input Link, then press OK.

The new link will appear above the cue it triggers. Select the Stagehand FX and the input that should trigger the Child Cue.
