Spotlight numbering tool not working for channels

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use the Spotlight numbering tool for channeling lights in a boom and I can't seem to make it work! I open up the toolbox and check off all that it SEEMS I need...  all my lights are still channelled 1.  Numbering for unit numbers works though...  Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

You need to check the Unit number as well in the Use column to the left.....

Thanks! But I'm not trying to number the units; I'm trying to number channels. If I select UNITS as well, it only changes the unit numbers. I can't seem to number channels at all.

You can check multiple items. Did you check channels as well?

Yes I tried what you said and only unit#s changed.  Really? You can check off more than one item? The dialog box only allows you to manipulate options for 1 though...

The tool is meant to be able to do multiple things at once. Check (tick) what you need it to do and then set up each option by clicking on an item individually....

Check your label legend as well just in case you have the channel field where the Units should be...... ?

THANKS SO MUCH! Seems like some items were unchecked but now it's all FIXED!  Still finding this SUPER SLOW though... so far have to say I'm not a fan and that channeling in LW is probably faster...

I tend to use Savvy Sequencer for these tasks, but the thought of multiple items entered at once thru spotlight is enticing.
