Help with effects

Hey all,

I'm a new road hog user. I've been starting to get the hang of things but am still trying to wrap my head around the effects engine.

I have two identical moving head lights. If i run one to run in a circle counterclockwise and the other to run in a circle clockwise how do i get them to sync up their movements. I want them to be at 0 degrees at the same time, then one will be at 90 while the other is at 270, then they will both hit 180 at the same time, and so on. Basically I want the two lights to mirror eachother.

Does this make sense? I have set the cycles and effect size to the same setting but they never match.

    Have you stored this in a cue and run it from there?

    Have you tried Fanning the Effect Offset?

    **EDIT**
    Yup, I tested it.
    Position both fixtures for the center of the circle
    Both fixtures running the Circle Effect from the Pallet.
    Adjust for Size.
    Edit one fixture to swap the 0deg and 270deg on the Pan/Tilt
    Now they are going opposite.
    Press Effect to get the parameters on the encoder wheels.
    Select both fixtures.
    Hold Fan and adjust the third wheel (Offset)

    Hope this Helps.

    sorry about that guys.....
    .... if i'm not wrong i think that if you want just to synch moving lights you should just first fix the fx that you want,(as an example a circle fx >> and a circle fx << )and if your moving lights are not synch because of the programming different time......you just press blind twice (on and off) and here you go your spots or whatever are starting together!!
