Re: Home Button

Yes, a bit too much like that.

I just want a home button.

In the same way that having a '5' button is much more useful than having to press shift-s7 to set a light to 50%.......

Re: Channel select and distribution issue

Alan, As you might imagine, I'm thinking of a large LED wall.... If I want to wipe top to bottom one way could be to have a group for each horizontal 'row'. I could then go: GROUP 1 (top row) THRU GROUP 32 (bottom row) TIME 1 to 10/5 (provided group a THRU group b is a valid syntax... don't know if ...

Re: Mark

I'd hate to lose functionality too. From my world, I wonder whether it's a cuelist option - ie when I'm programming the show go would land me in the follow on (because I should be smart enough to notice), when I leave the show with someone else I can switch it to 'safe' mode in case the person runni...

Re: Home Button

Because since release is now 'undo', surely chan attfamily release/undo will return that attfamily to the last played back value?

That's what I'd expect it to do.

What I want is a home button rather than another touch-your-nose-scratch-your-knee-know-the-secret button combination....

Re: Channel select and distribution issue

A related question: If I have group 1 containing chans 1>100, does selecting them using group 1@FL remember the selection order? Or is the group treated as one 'thing' for timing purposes? In particular: Group 1: 1>100 Group 2: 101>200 Group 3: 201>300 If I go Group 1 THRU Group 3 @ 1 to 100 do I se...

Re: Easy way to update positions

On Eos, GROUP (palette button) AT FL put all of the lights in that palette to the palette position/colour/whatever, and you should then be able to update from there except I don't think update would update the right thing. I don't actually understand why you need the GROUP button - why not just (pal...

Re: Mark

I suspect it may e as simple as, if you're using MIB you don't care about noise, if you're using MARK you do, which is why you want to be the 'control freak'. I guess the advantage of having MIB happen as late as possible is that you get the best of both worlds - ie. you can let it do the work UNLES...

Re: Home Button

I want, very quickly, to be able to: - get the light pointing 'home' - get it to OW - get it to no gobo - get it to open shutters. On 500, I had macro buttons called 'Beam Open', 'Col Open', Shutter Open', 'Home' to achieve exactly this - they were the LCD macro keys to easy to get to. On Eos I love...

Re: Mark

I was actually wondering if the follow-on part could happen more intelligently, ie: you have: cue 3 (run by go push) cue 4 (run by go push) cue 4.2 (auto-follow to cue 4) cue 5 (run by go push) Now what can happen is stage manager calls: cue 3 GO - press go cue 4 GO - press go cue 5 GO - press go - ...

Home Button

Can we have a home button, please? One of the nicest things about that lighting console beginning with 'E' is that it has a big home button right above the numeric keypad, so you can go: 1 POS HOME or 1 COL HOME or 1 SHUTTERS HOME or even 1 ALL ATTS HOME It's great. Yes, I could achieve this by reco...
