Modify a Group of fixtures

HawthornHawthorn Registered User
Hello,

I have a group of fixtures (6 desk chan) and in my second cue in my first cuelist I record this group with a intensity of 30%.

Well, now in this cue, I want to change the group... I don't want to have my 6 desk chan, but just the 3 first. So I modify My group... But in the cue all the 6 fixtures stay with the intensity.

And I don't have just a cue with this 6 fixtures, but 80. And I don't want to re-program all the 80 cue...

What's the solution ?

Thx

    modify the group is useless because the cues do not store the groups.
    solution 1
    load cue 1, select 4>6 , touch knock out, update, do the same with cue 2 if you have stored this fix in this cue too.
    open cuelist option and take off maintain state.

    Solution 2
    4>6 @0 record merge 1>80 enter

    How about 4>6 @0 record remove 1>80 enter ? (no hard values)

    Sami's suggestion is definitely the better one because it will kick out the desk channels 4 throught 6 completely out of the list: "4>6 @0 record remove 1>80 enter".
    With "4>6 @0 record merge 1>80 enter" you will just have unnecessary values in your cuelist (every cue will have 4>6@0 in it!). That doesn't really matter if you only have desk channels, but will slow down the desk on bigger rigs, especially during programming. And it's just not the right way ;)

    Of course that is better, I did not know this option "remove"!

    Perfect for me the remove option.... that removes several hundreds of useless records...

    Thanks to all

    "record remove" and cloning are the most powerful tools on the hog2 - at least in my opinion ;)
    If you have live shows (i.e. festival situations) and want cuelists for the colors on the wing, 2 for the spots (odd/even or something like that) and 2 for the washers, just make one list with all movinglights in them (which is done very easy when you have good palettes ;) ), label the cues, copy it 4 times and select all Washers but the first group. Hit PIG+ACTIVE to get all parameters in the programmer, select the first cuelist and type "record remove 1 thru enter". This will kick out all the lamps you had in the programmer. Do this 4 times for your for groups and you have perfect cuelists. Always keep your "master list" with all colors in case you want to change the grouping later. This saves a lot of time... do the same for moves, positions etc...
