Change profile on colour deletes attributes from other ML

Post by gooze » Mon Feb 11, 2008 8:17 am

I've repeated this one several times to be sure it wasn't me...
I go to Patch by output. Move the blue box to the Settings-field of the Cyan parameter of Spot2. I edit something (proportional patch to 90% or apply different curve). Then the parameters before the cyan parameter of spot 3 disappear!

Today had it again on a different console! This is really annoying...

So here is a full how-to:
Go to patch, Patch by output. Go to the settings-field of fixture 2's cyan attribute. Double click to open the DB. Change the linear field to slow start. Now all the parameters of spot 3 that were patched before the cyan parameter (so pan, tilt, etc.) have disappeared.

Profiles completely changed in 10.1.2 +, and I don't think this problem is relevant any more.

Can you try in 10.1.3 and see if it behaves in a similar way? It shouldn't.

Thanks!
