Another effect howto? from center...

Post by TaineGilliam » Mon Sep 22, 2008 1:29 pm

For example, fixtures 1/12 and I'm looking to do a from center chase: 6&7, 5&8, 4&9, 3&10, 2&11, 1&12. Of course the opposite direction would be required also. So while this might not seem like a big deal for twelve fixtures it's a bit more fun with 120.

What's the best way to create a group for easy selection recall for this type of effect? I realize I can't "store" the effect parameters but I was hoping to at least save the selection order to make creation on the fly as fast and easy as possible.

For 1 thru 12, select 6 thru 1 and 7 thru 12 then add the FX and set the xTimes to 2.

Easy peasy

Thanks Robert, I'll play around a bit to see how it handles an odd number . It doesn't look like 7/1+7/13 will handle the center unit correctly.
