Color Coding on Display

Post by tconejr » Wed Oct 07, 2015 10:16 am

I apologize in advance if this is stupid. A search of the forum didn't turn up the answer, but I'm a beginner and may have framed my query badly.

I've noticed that the numeric values (intensity) for 'active' fixtures in a cue have differing colors. Some red, some yellow, some blue...

What do the differing colors signify?

Are there other colors I should know about?

Thanks.

Hi,

This depends on which basic mode you choose (Light palette Classic (EU), Light Palette Classic (US), etc.) during setup (or in the system settings).
I usually set-up the desk to have the colours mean:
Blue for levels going up
Green for levels going down
Magenta for levels staying the same
(Blue as the sky, green as grass, and a magenta horizon)

(Then there is yellow for levels affected by subs, white for blocked levels)
