dramatic Live Design International Exhibition stand, complete with hourly live show,
was once again controlled by an Avolites Titan system. Robe’s creative team, led
by Nathan Wan and Andy Webb chose a Tiger Touch II console networked with three
Titan Net Processors to program the complex cue list, for over 200 fixtures
packing 386 cues into 8 minutes of performance! Timing was everything for the
show to work, so the cue list all ran to timecode, and with such a critical
audience of industry professionals watching, there was no room for error.
show narrative followed the intrepid Explorer character, having journeyed from
London fighting her way through the jungle, encountering hostile Ninjas and
other obstacles, arriving at a clearing in the dense forest and discovering a
use of Titan’s feature-rich cue lists was key to bringing everything together;
“Autoloads within the cue list allow us to build a complex cue, which we might
use several times, while always having a single point to refer back to for
changes. If we decide we don’t like the way it looks, we edit the original and
the whole performance is updated instantly” says Wan.
team made extensive use of the keyframe effect engine, including the new V11
ability to run the effects only once, and for the transition from their
environmental looks into the show, Macros released running playbacks ready for
timecode to take over. “The whole stand has to run autonomously once we finish
programming. And the full three days worked seamlessly, without a single
hiccup” stated Webb.
