    What effect are you looking for? That would determine how you approach it.

    It's funny you post this now because most of my rig this week is led and for most of my effects I use the fx engine

    well the look I was making was all blue with intermittent white blasts, I wound up just writing it manually and it took forever......

    well to do that I'd just set the blue intensity to 100% and then in the effect table set Red and Green to the "step" value set range to 100% and then you can adjust your length and beat as times.

    Now if your wanting them to flash at different times it should be as simple as holding down the "fan" key while moving the effect offset.


    hope this helps :)

    Or if you work with CMY:

    fixtures @ full, colour blue (c=100 m=100 y=0), select -blue step, select grouping and buddying the way you like to have it, press and hold fan and turn the effects offset....

    done

    It's been a minute since I've worked CMY, but if I remember correctly, Doesn't C+M=UV?

    And if you wanted you to do it in HS you would set hue to 180º and then set your saturation to step, with the range set to 100% and then you could use the fan key to set your offset

    With LED you will only have the Blue LED on then...
