Invert Color?

I'm currently in Beijing, using some Fine Art profiles that are a copy of the Clay Paky 1200 HPE. The Clay Paky profile works OK, but the CMY and zoom functions are all inverted.

I've had the guys invert the CMY at the fixtures, but am wondering if there isn't an easy way to do this the the fixture edit window. I've tried a number of things, but none are completely successful in keeping with my existing programing.

I guess that the other solution is rebuilding all my color palettes, but there's got to be a better way.

    maybe put in an extra option to give in / change dmx-channels somewhere in the patch-fields??

    If the only issue you currently have is the colour palettes are wrong you are home free in my opinion considering what could be wrong.
    Making a keystroke Macro could help you to speed up the update process.
    I suppose you could try
    "setup,patch,edit fixtures,sort by function,select the fixtures and change the default in the colours to 100% but not sure how that's going to alter your programming.

    Best C

    Well, I actually tried that. It does make the wheels react the way I need, but programmed colors react based on a 100% instead of a 0 value, so they can be off a little or a great deal. The easiest fix seems to be inverting the CMY at the fixture. Only other thing that is inverted is the zoom, but that I can go through and fix.

    I'm actually very pleased that it was this easy to fix. Coming up..Fine Art versions of the Big Light 7KW. Should be fun.

    I also have some Fine Art copies of the Mac2K XB, which are actually quite nice.

    Thanks for your help.
