Changing Effect Playback Rate

Steve KSteve K Registered User
Is it possible to change the rate of a programmed effect from a playback Choose button? The Hog II allowed this but the III appears not to. If not it would be a helpful feature to have. I have been using the III for a festival recently with visiting LD's and programmed a few busk pages but the apparent inabilty to change the rate of effects live meant that I had to record different speed versions of the same cue.

    Yes, but if you're creating a busk page (I do this a lot) create one fader as an effects only fader.

    The good thing about tracking is that if you record an effect in cue 1, just run cue 1. Grab the fixtures and change the effect rate and record as cue 2. The effect, offset, and length track through. You'll see this when you open your effects window and begin to modify parameters.

    The cuelist option is certainly one way of achieving the result; to an extent. A cue for a slow effect, another for a medium speed effect, another for a fast paced effect etc. Definitely a sensible solution. However; it would just be much nicer if the Cuelist rate actually changed the speed of effects.

    Steve,

    I've added your comments to enhancement #9039, which discusses our plans to offer better live control of running effects.

    Thanks.
