making scenes persist on override

LeggyLeggy Registered User, Hog Beta
Hi All,
Is there a quick way to make scenes persist on override? When I open the spreadsheet it lets me set fade times, but nothing else. The only way I have found to do it is to put the scene onto a fader then go to options, but this is very slow when I have a lot of scenes to edit.
Thanks,
Leggy.

    I believe (don't have a console in front of me right now), you can set the "Persist on Override" in the Scene Preferences. That way, they always will, unless you turn it off.

    Setup / Preferences / Scroll down to Scene.

    Thanks Jon. I had realised this, but not until I'd programmed 50 scenes already, so too late for them!

    Awe...that sucks. Sorry about that. No other way around it now....

    The only thing I can suggest now is attach them all to faders. When you hold down the "Choose" button, on the right screen at the bottom, you can just click "Persist On Override"....saves you a few mouse moves and clicks to get into the options.

    Yeah, thats what I ended up doing. Not quite sure why we can't highlight and edit in the spreadsheet view of the scene directory, if anyone up on high is reading this can we consider that a request please!
    Thanks for the help Jon.

    Leggy,

    its Bickie here (IOW hog 3 Programmer in the tent) just reading your post and if you are trying to do what we were running at the IOW I have a new way of working round the problem of Persist on overide and the touch screen becoming full with loads of running cues.

    If you have say 20 actual wash lights on your show then patch a 21st one as a 'dummy' fixture

    Then record all your colours on the touch screen as scenes as per normal but including the 21st 'dummy' fixture in each colour cue/scene

    you don't need to apply persist on overide to any of the scenes now.

    Then if you record all 20 wash lights in white (DO NOT INCLUDE THE DUMMY 21st fixture) to a master and set the flash button to go and release, when you hit the button it will overide the colour of the scene selected but will not release it as the 21st fixture is not in the cue on the master, but if you hit a different scene it would change colour..........

    Did that make sense ?

    Giz a call or drop us a mail if you want

    cheers,

    bickie.
