Purge show function

Post by gooze » Sat Oct 19, 2013 8:43 am

I would propose a purge show function.
It would be really nice to be able to clean up your show file after your plotting and technical rehearsals.
Purge would automatically:
- delete fixtures from patch which are not used in the show (no levels above zero)
- delete unused palettes (positions, Colours, etc.)
- delete empty cue lists

What do you think? Any additions to the list?

I would add delete fixtures that are not used in show: value above zero and value only zero ( i mean fixtures you accidently put hard zeros but don't use in show.
