Sneak is a softkey that you can use to fade channels on stage to a level you choose in a specific time or to restore channels to the last level at which they were set with a fader or submaster. For example, if you bring up a cue, then change the look, you can use sneak to go back to the look created by the original cue. You can use Sneak with groups, submasters and focus points as well as with cues.
If you do not indicate a time, the sneak occurs in the default sneak time, set in System Settings.
