weird effect editor behavior 3.2.2

tymontymon Registered User
I open the editor effect by hitting Effect twice, move (with arrow keys) to the Size field in the parameter line I want, hit Set, type 20, hit Enter.. and the effect starts. With size.. 1440. So I must hit Set again, type in 20 again, hit Enter again, apologize to everybody for knocking the artist off the stage; kinda annoying.
Now, I am not so happy with Sine. Si I change Table to, say, Ramp. And the effect.. just stops. No movement whatsoever. So I need to hit Clear and build my selection from scratch again, which is a shame, because it is a good selection that makes a good effect, and I don't want to lose a good selection because of some stupid bug.

    Which parameter are you putting the sine effect on? It sounds like you are working with pan and tilt. Is that correct? I am not seeing the kind of behavior you are talking about. Do you have a 100% reproduction method for this with certain fixtures?

    Chris,

    the pattern was repeating itself with a variety of parameters. With Pan, the Size went to 1440deg, with Intensity it went to 400%, etc. - consistently four times what common sense would perceive "full". The selection was always a group of 42 JBLed A7 Zoom. The show was a one-off, and for the rest of the week I am busy with shows that use a different console, so no chance to try and reproduce the problem before Monday. Want the showfile?
