Proper modifier syntax

dwp-avdwp-av Registered User
Would someone mind writing the proper command line syntax that uses the '.' modifier to reset back to default? Having a little trouble w/ it. Any parameter w/ a default will suffice.... Thanks!

    That's very easy to achieve.
    Let put it this way, imagine you select fixture A and give it a position. To restore the default position you have to simply push the dot(.) button and hold it down and the position button and the same time. You may want to restore only pan or tilt. In this case use the modifier as above and spin the pan or tilt enconder. Alternatively you can use the dot pig combination that is slightly different but still restores your fixture to default values. This combination however doesn't restore to default mode those parameter slots which have a double option such as gobo<> ( index, rotate). In case you are in rotate mode it would restore your gobo rotation to 0rpm without necessari ly restoring the mode to index that is the very default mode. Hope this helps

    Chris,

    Section 15.3.9 of the manual states the following:

    15.3.9 Restoring Default Values
    You can reset parameter values to their default settings by using the . (point) key or Pig
    + . keys as a modifier. Default values for parameters can be set in the Edit Fixtures window.
    When using the . key as a modifier, modes such as gobo rotate will be restored to default
    value but the current mode will remain (gobo rotate). When using the Pig + . keys as a
    modifier, modes such as gobo rotate will be restored to default value and default mode
    (index).
    To restore the default value for a single parameter of the current selection:
    • Press and hold the . key or Pig + . keys and turn the appropriate parameter
    wheel.
    To restore the default values of a parameter kind for the current selection:
    • Press and hold the . key or Pig + . keys and press the appropriate kind
    key.
    To restore the default values for all parameters of the current selection:
    • Press and hold the . key or Pig + . keys and press the Fixture key.

    Hey guys, thanks for the instruction. I must admit, I didn't look very hard in the manual for it, this forum is just too easy to get the answers you need! Thanks again!
