    Hello I can give you my own experience with hippotizer.

    I use them in 3.1 SP 1 software version .

    On Hippotizer i patch :

    - 1 or 2 master 3.1 ( depends of the hippotizer model )
    - X layer 3.0.14
    - Keystones layer ( i build it in personalities 8 ch )

    On Fullboar 4

    - I built and patch a 3.1 master from a 3.0.14 master by adding video mapper parameters ( charts dmx present on the green hippo web site )
    - I patch X layers : layer v3
    - I built and patch( for each layer ) a 8 ch fixture for keystone layer


    The 3.1 sp1 have keystone by layers, and you need building a keystone library ( and modifiy the default values in edit fixture ).

    I didn't have enough time to build a complete Layer 3.1 library.

    If you need more information i can send you :
    - a hog 4 show with my libraries
    - a dmx2 component export

    Best regards

    Sebastien

    Thanks Sebastien for your help. I did try to create a full fixture on my own, but I gave up halfway as I couldn't find a way to add new attributes into the console as there is no existing ones that is close to some of hippo attributes. Since v3.1 was out for quite time already, I was hoping that there will be a proper one created by HES.

    Hey guys....

    Try to contact one of the admins here (Michael Graham would be good), so he can push this request.
    I think this request is really a important one

    I think so too... I have also requested a few times them to correct the 3.0.14 layer library.
    Dmx channel 48 is the relay select and currently it is marked as unsused in the lib.
    I just can't understand why things like this can't be corrected ASAP. Is there a lack of resources in the library creation staff or what is the problem?
    Also. the libraries are one of the KEY features of Hog line, because it is using abstraction layer and generic fixture model.
    Though a bit off topic... I really would like to know what are the plans for color calibration of the fixtures. Will it be a feature that will never get full power and do we just have to watch other console manufactures being ahead of us with Carallon fixture databases.
    Sorry about this... but this really getting on my nerves...

    I've sent an email to [FONT="]hoglibraries@highend.com[/FONT] few days after I've posted on the forum but haven't receive any reply from HES except for the auto reply.

    Additionally, I do hope that users could add new attributes name into the console to build new fixtures. Then we could create new fixtures on our own especially for media servers as there are always new attributes coming up.

    Are you still in need of this library?
    This has been created and will be included in the next release but I do have a copy I can send you.

    And If you have fixed 3.0.14 lib, that would be nice too.

    Hi Michael,

    any luck with the new fixture library? My show is 2 weeks away and I do hope to be able to use the new v3.1 library. Thank you.
