ATEM TVS and automatic cam switching

Let me first say that I'm a total newbie with no scripting experience at all. I'm in a complete mist here :-)

Just bought my ATEM TVS and installed JustMacros together with my X-Key 24. So far I can record or put a few scripts under a button or two, no problem, everything works, but my possibilities are limited here. I'm looking for:

- Button A: that switches automatically between cam 1, 2, 3 and 4 in a continuous loop with steps of 7 seconds.
- Button B: that switches to cam 5 and keep it there.

The problem is that when I press button B after A is running, script A keeps taking over and keeps switching between cam 1, 2, 3 and 4. So every button needs to stop or end the previous script. Furthermore I'm not sure how to make a loop while recording a script?

I'm sorry for the newbie-question, I don't want to waste any time of the more advanced users, but hopefully somebody can put me in the right direction?

Thanks a lot!

There is a topic covering

There is a topic covering something like this coming on the website, but basically you need two scripts.

Download the scripts from here:

http://www.justmacros.tv/downloads/scripts/SimpleCycleAndCutSample.zip

Read scripts, try to figure out what they are doing.

I'd say the one problem is having cut to 5, you need to wait up to 7 seconds for the cycling process to stop, before restarting it, else when you restart the cycle it'll be 7 seconds before the first cut takes place. Several ways to solve it, see if you can work it out.

Cheers

It will work as I described........

Invest a little time learning how to write simple scripts, I guarantee it'll be worth it.
