Does anyone know if Logic has any way to put a 5 second countdown to cue hit points for monitor for live orchestra, where either the conductor or conductor plus players see some kind of 5 second warning of a cue point. There is supposed to be cue software that has a L to R line moving to show an approacing point but i can't find it. The tempo is free and notation proportional.

many thanks !

There's no built-in cue feature in Logic, if that's what you mean.

Do this. Count five seconds from the cue. At the five second mark, create a marker (without rounding), enter the marker, and type in "5." Then select the largest, most handsome font you'd like and set the size to something like 96.

Create markers for each second with each respective number.

Open a marker window as a float (or otherwise make sure that it doesn't get covered by accident).

Lastly, and most importantly, enable the Running Man icon in the Marker window.

Now with Logic playing you'll have a large "5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 " appear on your screen as the SPL passes through each marker. (If the Running Man isn't on, the markers won't switch.)

Then, one second after the cue, add a marker that reads, "You're late."

Sorry for late reply and my thanks for your answer to my question.
Of course, it works well. The running man detail i never would have guessed.
The orch. reading is assisted by DP software's streamers since they're not using Logic afterall....but the marker countdown on a monitor seems perfectly fine.
And will work in another situation where they do use Logic.

I wonder if there is a book with film procedures and details like this ?
