Re: Paperwork Automation

The CSV files don't really help. If you make a colour group (for a scroller being the most common use we have) it only references it as used in cues 1, 2, 8, 11 etc. rather than used in that unit in that cue. The same problems happens with position or lens groups. As an example I have a position gro...

Paperwork Automation

I'm currently trying to automate the production of paperwork for various aspects of the shows we do. Along with the print function on the console we use various standard formats of Microsoft Excel files (something in place from before we started using a Palette). These consist of pretty simple lists...

Re: Colour FX

Having played around with this a bit more a cue list chase with changing rate and xfade rate times still seems to be the fastest way of programming this. The problem with using two cues and independent timing is that it makes changing the times much more cumbersome. You have to first work out the di...

Colour FX

When programming a show a designer requested a venetian blind type colour effect on 8 units LED colour changers built into a flown bit of the set. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, select a base colour add an automatic venetian blind chase to Colour A, B or C record delta and job done. He then re...

10.81 Offset More Button

Present in the OLE of 10.81 and on our desk currently running 10.66 (don't ask). Have a Martin Mac 2000 performance patches with various lens palettes recorded whilst on tour we wished to offset the shutter rotation in the patch window. To get to this one would assume it would be under the more butt...

Re: (LUA) Lamp Off Macro?

The look solution is what I am currently employing but it means you have to remember to take the sub down again to make it lamp off (and remember to have it snap attributes as well.) I would have thought HC.AttributeSetValue('101/110','Control','Lamp Off') would do it, but I can't seem to get it to ...

(LUA) Lamp Off Macro?

Hello all,

Complete LUA beginner here so all help appreciated.

Have been hitting my head against the screen for a while trying to write a script which will lamp off moving lights (VL 3500) from the remote (probably using one of the looks to trigger a variable?).

Cheers,

Straker

Channel Renumbering

This might have been asked before but search hasn't turned up anything. On the 500 series I was able to take a channel ie Ch 200 and renumber it to Ch 250 for example. This would also copy the information contained in cue lists, effects and groups to this new channel number. Is there an easy way to ...
