Group & Look Command Line Syntax

Post by bnortin » Wed Sep 23, 2009 6:46 pm

I've been running into issues when selecting multiple looks, groups & channels at the same time in the command line.

Selecting multiple Groups: [Group # + Group # + Group #] or [Group # thru #] works fine.
Selecting multiple Looks: [Look # + Look #] does not work, you cannot press [Look] after the plus. [Look # thru #] seems to work ok.

Groups and Looks also cannot be selected after an individual fixture.
ex: [1+2+3+Group] Translates into [1 Thru 3 Group]
ex: [1+2+3+Look] Translates into [1 Thru 3 Look]

Is this a bug or is there another way to do multiple selections? Thanks.

That's funny. I'm in China right now and I just had a user report that to me as well!

Thanks Robert, these have been on the list for quite some time. Any chance this will improve the related issue of S-key population for similar Group/Look syntax?

Not that I understand it, but the code guys say this is really hard to fix. I know it's 'just' code, but with the structure of the command line, apparently this one is a real nasty one.

Porting all your looks to groups should be easier then. Copy Look # trough # at Group # (through #).


But that's a different topic
