groups in auto palettes

stephlightstephlight Registered User
i think it would be great to have 2 more options for group in auto palette directoty.
1) An option to create solo group (1 fixture by palette) without using the maximum group repeat (just to have all and eatch). We could have Alignement option with hole in fixture numbering, 1 thru 8 on first group palette line, 11 thru 17 on second group palette line....

2) An other option to have an auto Symmetrical goupes , created from the holes in the numeration of fixtures.
we have 15 fixtures, 8 on truss A Numbered from 1 to 8 and 7 on truss B Numbered from 11 to 17. Symmetrical goupe are
1 + 8
2 + 7
3 + 6
4 + 5
11 + 17
12 + 16
13 + 15
14
There is a hole between 8 and 11 in the sequence of numbers, so the Symmetrical groups are done from 1 to 8 then from 11 to 17.

    Steph,

    I understand why you might want a group for each fixture, but I think that the second idea might be a bit complicated. Some thought needs to be put into this idea due to the varying differences in rigs and programmers' use of them. I am not sure how this could be implented and be flexible and intuitive.

    Lets see what orther ideas develop here...

    thanks,

    To be adapted to other systems of classifications, we could for those wish it, give a coding simple and fast (a letter or a figure in a column) which would make it possible to identify the regroupings.
