Sucking unpatched Fixtures

rocitoprocitop Registered User
I am doing some preprograming work on my laptop for a dance gig at a theatre, I have created a show file with most of the fixtures I will be using patched but I do not know the FOH patch yet so those channels are not patched. I am having an issue with using suck to load values into the programer. If I do group 1 suck it will grab the values for all the channels that have been patched but will not grab the values for the unpatched channels.

As a work around I have patched the fixutres to bougus adress but that isn't a great solution.

I am using Hog PC 3.0.0 and I am using Vista. I know this is a less than supported solution but I am in a time crunch with few other options.

Thanks for any help.

    Actually, that is the best solution. Patch them wherever. Then, all you have to do is repatch them once you get the patch sheet and you're good to go.

    for preprograming i normally patch the f.o.h. to a universe I won't be using, and just leave it there during show
