There are both Major Cues and Minor Cues in Show Pro. Think of Major Cues as Segments such as a presenter to stage for an hour and Minor Cues as Sub Cues within that segment such as a video or a special effect cue, which you want to associate with that Major Cue. Keep in mind, when you move a Major Cue, it's
associated Minor Cues move with it.
This analogy may be helpful... think of Major Cues like cars of a train and Minor Cues like passengers on the train in each car. When you change the order of a Major Cue (train car), the rest of the train cars must still be linked up, so they shift to accommodate the move. The passengers on the train car that moved go along with the train car to it's new position (associated Minor Cues). If you pick up a passenger from one car and put it into another car or just in a different place in the same car, the passenger goes right in the middle of the adjacent passengers, but the train cars (Major Cues) and the adjacent passengers (Minor Cues) remain unchanged.
In Show Pro, Major Cues must have a designated duration, while Minor Cues do not, and often times are simply referred to as instant cues. All cues will automatically have a cue countdown calculated by Show Pro to indicate the amount of time between cues start times.
Show Pro is flexible, allowing you to design your cue sheet in different ways to meet your needs. You can use any combination of Major Cues, Minor Cues or both. It's up to you. In order to take advantage of the power of Show Pro, it’s best to use a combination of both.
