  • Hi Andy- I got your tweet. For clarification, I don't work for Barco - but I'll try and help anyhow. I'm sure you'll get more advice from more active members of this forum. There isn't a LOT out there on the internet regarding Hog 2 tutorials. …
  • If the cue is on the chosen master, you can use CUE # COPY ENTER. If not, you can use LIST # CUE # COPY ENTER. Using LIVE TOUCH is not specific to one cue. LIVE TOUCH grabs all fixture's whose intensity is above 0- regardless of where the infor…
  • Yes: Sort of. :147: The (.) + (wheel) is a little more specific. It doesn't matter what the attribute's current Output is (like it does for "Touch"). When you use this shortcut, it will force the attribute to it's default in the Programmer. The attr…
  • BenJourno wrote: What is the different between . + Wheel and backspace + Wheel (knockout)? Don't understand the english manual at this point. Greetings (.) plus (wheel) is actually very different from (backspace) plus (wheel). Using the …
  • Hello Chingun- I believe you are indicating that the ESP Vision demo is crashing on your computer. ESP Vision is not actually a High End Systems product, so the best thing to do would be to contact their support department directly.
  • Tom- We do have introductory videos available (including video guides to patching, as you mentioned). Please visit

  • The quick answer is to press HIGHLIGHT, then type 1 ENTER, NEXT, NEXT, NEXT, and so on. Thanks

  • While I am working on more videos and tutorials, the videos are mostly targeted towards the basic skills. The videos really can't illustrate everything that we do in the live training classes, but they're helpful for new users of the Wholehog system…
  • You can also grab the Wholehog Translation guide (aka: Hog2/Wholehog Thesaurus). It can be used as a quick syntax guide as well as translation of Hog 2 to Wholehog (Hog3PC, Wholehog 3, Road Hog, Road Hog Full Boar) syntax. It is available here:
  • Amber- Most likely, the last person to use the console enabled the autolaunch functionality for their showfile and then deleted their showfile. The error message is simply the console telling you that it can't find the show it has been asked to lau…
  • Marko- Here is a PDF with a tutorial on how to network our consoles with ESP Vision (Full Boar instructions begin on page 5): http://www.highend.com/support/training/). There are more documents that talk about Hog networking there as well. Thank…

  • Hello Scott- I spoke with you yesterday when we cleaned up the copying syntax between multiple fixture types. While that will still work, I think I have a faster option for you. Here’s the short explanation: Since your physical sets each have t…
  • Snowman- The Hog system of patching is a little fancier than the systems employed by some other manufacturers. That doesn't mean it's hard.. just that the amount of options can sometimes seem staggering at first. If the manual doesn't cover it for …
  • Hello- See if this tutorial will help you out:
  • No worries- I didn't even see your post until after I posted mine. The programmers in my training classes will tell you that I always encourage them not to turn on "Default Track Forwards to Off." This is not because it doesn't work properly: it …
  • Hello- There are several options that allow you to go non-tracking. It sounds like you've already found the non-tracking cue option (deselecting "Forward" from the Record Command Line). Here are 2 more: To turn tracking off on a cuelist by cueli…
  • Hello- Check out this technote available online:
  • Aranajoseluis- Give me a call and we can talk about your network set-up and exactly what type of functionality you are looking for. I can be reached in the Van Nuys office at 818-947-0550. There are a variety of ways to network the consoles and its…
  • Hey Mike- I'm gonna give you a call to talk about this setup. Thanks Cat Cat West High End Systems Wholehog Support and Training
  • Don't forget, when you're at your computer: the Hog2 manual was installed with the program. You'll find it in the same place you find your show files on your hard drive. If all else fails, grab one at
  • Tim- You may already know this if you've talked with Joe. The profile for the pixel par 4 cell does appear to be exactly what you describe needing (4 channels: RGBA). There will not be any color autopalettes (you'll want to mix and create your o…
  • Charles- According to the Arkaos website, the version 3.5 DMX protocol matches the 3.6 protocol; so I'd try downloading the version 3.6 (full or tiny depending on which one you have) profile from
  • Hi Amber- We currently have only 2 spaces left for our fixture class next week. If you do plan on attending- please fill out the online registration as soon as possible. Our administrators will need to authorize your payment before we can confirm…
  • Try: Group 51 Copy Fixture Group 121 Feel free to use further masking in your syntax. Thanks Cat West High End Systems
  • Hey, it looks like Leebot read my post located here:
  • Hi Jim- You are going to find that programming on the Hog 1000 is very different than a program like Light Jockey. We have a lot of resources online; here are a few links to take a look at: Get the Hog 500/1000 manual at http://www.flyingpig.co…
  • FKM- As I said before, we cannot make a solid recommendation without having the console in house. I have spoken again with our bench repair technicians and they cannot make a recommendation without having your console in our shop. If you choo…
  • FKM- Because neither of the screens are calibrating, you may have a problem with one of the PCBs. Before going that route, please give your screens a cleaning. Please do not use any liquid or substance cleaner. Some users have found success usin…
  • Scott- Whenever you are not certain where the output values are coming from, please consult the output window. Pressing the Sources button will let you know what list/cue or editor is sending the data. I would bet that you have programmed som…
  • Hello FKM- Have you also cleaned the filters inside the projector itself? This could be the problem. Thanks Cat West High End Systems

  • Hello FKM- There is a known software bug with regards to this error in version 1.5.0. We expect to have this corrected when 1.5.1 is released. As long as your fixture is pan/tilt-ing correctly, then I would say you are experiencing a software bug…

  • Justin- What I emailed you was just a course outline. This is what we use for our 2 day group training sessions here in Austin. You can consult your trainer to find out exactly what he/she will teach you. The certificates that we mail from Hig…
  • Yes, we will be able to provide you with a certificate that indicates you have taken Hog II training. I have sent the course outline to your email address. Thanks Cat
  • Hi Justin- As you would be getting private training (most likely from Koh), there's not really a need to specify whether you need advanced training or basic. With private training, we like to assess the trainee's level and then go from there. So, …
