How to Run an Absolute Effect (Without Even Trail) on Two Groups of Channels


The Absolute Effect I created is intended to run on Group A and Group B simultaneously, however when I play back my cue the effect runs on Group A first and ends with Group B. How can two groups run the same effect at the same time? 

Description/Explanation of Issue

If the Absolute Effect does not have an Even Trail, then the effect will run across Group A and B sequentially. Therefore, Group A and Group B cannot use the same effect. 


  1. Duplicate the Effect A and record Effect B    
  2. Apply Effect A to Group A and Effect B to Group B
    1. Now the groups will run simultaneously, as Effect A and Effect B trigger at the same time
