QLab 5 Batch Cue Generator TSV/CSV

Updated: Mar 31

Create batches of cues from an exported TSV/CSV file.

A QLab script paired with a Google Spreadsheet for 17 different kinds of batch cue imports from tsv or csv files. The script reads the tsv or csv files directly, so no need to have a separate spreadsheet editor open. Just export a tsv/csv, and run the script. The script will prompt you for which file. The script detects which sheet is being used, so 1 script runs the 17 different kinds of tsv/csv files exported and you can select multiple files to run a large batch. The files you select don't all need to be the same tsv/csv type.

TSV files work pretty seamlessly. CSV files can get thrown off if commas or quotation marks are used in any cell.


Version 3 of the Google Sheet is at:


When the link opens in a new tab, just click "Use Template" in the upper right corner to add a copy to your Google Drive. Then either keep this link, or keep your own copies to always have a clean template to start from.


If it's helpful, here's an example of how the sheet can be filled:



This script uses QLab 5's network device definitions, and so the correct patches need to be set before creating cues. If the cues are created before proper network settings, changing the network settings afterwards will not fix the cues. To enforce a proper network patch before creating cues, for any tab creating network cues there is a place in column A of each tab to specify the name of the network patch number or name you want the cues to use. The script will stop if it doesn't see a network patch with the name or number indicated.

For other types of cues, it will alert you of the missing patch but let you keep creating the cues in the batch.





 

Script


Copy the text below, and paste it into a script cue in your QLab workspace.

I recommend assigning it a hotkey, or I like to give each script cue a unique cue number using letters, and then trigger it from Bitfocus Companion.


Version 3




--by Taylor Glad. Updated March 31 2024. version 3.1
--Script will prompt you for a tsv or csv file. You can select multiple files. You don't need Microsoft Excel, or any other spreadsheet editor open.


--use this sheet:
--https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z--2UYToCa054WpF5W9hxfIapoohNZ2vGqBo5gIEh_A/template/preview


--if the script crashes, make sure you are using version 3 of the QLab Batch Cue Generator sheet. See https://www.taylorglad.com/post/qlab-5-batch-cue-generator-tsv
--feel free to send me any feedback in the comments or through the Contact Me page on the website.


--the script will recognize what sheet/tab/page you exported, and use the correct section to handle the batch.
