Offset effect when replicating fixtures

LeggyLeggy Registered User, Hog Beta
I often need to replicate fixture to put my show onto a larger rig than the one it was programmed on. I then need to go through every cue in the show to adjust the offset on all the effects for the new fixtures. Would it be possible to have an option when replicating to adjust all offsets by a certain amount of degrees? Maybe even be able to select a different amount for each parameter and/or fixture?

Any thoughts guys, is this a good idea or not?

    What happens if you update the effect pallete?
    if you open effect 100,101 thru 106 copy (fixture) 151 thru 156
    enter update or a syntax like that.
    Seems to work for me although I do have to
    sometimes open the effect a few times and update
    if it has a few parameters.

    Hi Cormac,

    I've never really got into treating the effects like pallets, they used to be too unpredictable, I tend to build them individually in each cue. Maybe I should give it another go.

    If you keep the effects pallettes parameters
    separate they seem to update quite well.
    Sure your idea of automatically offsetting
    replicated fixtures would also be cool but then
    they are not replicating exactly which could
    cause other problems?

    stay well c
