 +===== Chase Devices =====
  
 +The Chase area determines the chase devices and the master timecode. Chase devices follow the external (or internal) timecode automatically,​ as far as the timestrip is running. To configure this feature, the following steps have to be carried out.
 +
 +{{:​ChaseDevices.png|}}
 +
 +**1. Determine the Timecode Master**
 +
 +Via //Timecode Source button//, a dialogue is opening, allowing to select a device as timecode master.
 +
 +{{:​MasterTimecodeSelect.png|}}
 +
 +In this case, we use a timecode reader interface (Alpermann + Velte TC60 RL Timecode Reader). To complete the selection, don't forget to choose a channel for the device as well (tc60 in this example). If there is no external timecode reader available, one can choose Internal Timecode as timecode source.
 +
 +**2. Start TC (only with Internal Timecode)**
 +
 +Determines the start value of the internal timer. This is were the Timestrip starts.
 +
 +**3. Set End TC (only with Internal Timecode)**
 +
 +Determines the end value of the internal timer. This is were the Timestrip ends.
 +
 +**4. Framerate of the Timecode**
 +
 +**5. Preroll Frames**
 +
 +Preroll Frames determine the time, the system needs for synchronization. They depend on the device that is used as chase device. The quicker the chase device can locate a new position, the less Preroll Frames can be necessary. For today'​s harddisk players, a value between 5 and 15 Frames should be sufficient.
 +
 +**6. Select the Chase Devices**
 +
 +Add Device opens a dialogue to choose the chase devices.
 + 
 +{{:​SelectChaseDevices.png|}}
 +
 +To select a chase device, select the device and the channels.
 +
 +**7. Remove the selected chase device**
 +
 +**8. Chase Device List**
 +
 +A list with all configured chase devices
 +
 +**9. Run from Current TC  (only with Internal Timecode)**
 +
 +The timestrip start from the position entered in the Position field.
 +
 +**10. Loop (only with Internal Timecode)**
 +
 +Play endless. If you are using an external timecode, the timecode source has to do the loop if you want one.
