  • This is OnCue's main screen. You can access it by clicking on the camera icon at the top. This is available on your Mac's menubar (top of your screen) whenever OnCue is running.


  • In this image, motion has been detected. The amount of motion just barely extends past the horizontal lines in the motion activity meter-- if a motion trigger had been set when this motion was detected, it would have caused OnCue to record to disk.

    Notice that the motion trigger is not active (the button says "Arm", indicating the trigger is not armed, but ready to be armed), so this motion would not be recorded.


  • In this image, audio has also been detected. But, again, no video is recorded because no triggers were set or "armed".


  • Here, the audio threshold has been moved. With it the horizontal threshold markers in the audio activity meter have moved, as well. Notice the top and bottom markers always move together. These markers simply give a visual representation of how much audio (or video, since the idea is the same) is necessary for OnCue to start a recording.


  • Now the audio trigger has been set. When audio is detected and the audio level exceeds the level indicated by the threshold markers in the audio activity meter, OnCue will immediately begin recording video to the folder chosen in "settings" (~/Movies/OnCue by default)


  • An audio event occurred in this image, which started recording as soon as it was detected. The video file was written to a subfolder inside the user's "Movies" directory, since that was the location set by default.
