  • Yes, you have mail.
  • Yes, I have run into the same problem last weekend. Updating palletes using the following comment: "Color 1 Copy to Color 2, more, replace, Enter" I was working on a Hog III with Exp.Wing & DP8000.
  • Like that idea.
  • You can always run your 'cocktail'-cue, then unplug the dmx and program via network in Wysiwyg.
  • Most of the time Pig+Open+Backspace is still working. Press Quit, and Restart Console. If even that doesn't work, I doubt any other combination will.
  • I had the same problem last weekend. Shpould check here more often again, would save me some searching. But I have a small thing to add to this bug: When deleting the list, it still stays (as an empty cuelist). Pressing 'Undo' will result in a ta…
  • It happened during showtime, so not the right moment to see where it's coming from. I will be having the same show in 2 weeks and try to find out what's causing it. gr. Pim
  • Black tape is easier...
  • Maybe the Hog III can be the first desk with USB 3.0
  • Have you checked all setting on Wyg? When you start Wysiwig, you get a small Hog-logo on your toolbar, this is your DP. Is the status Running and are the outputs active? When you are in Live-mode, you can see to what number DP you are connected …
  • If you want to change the time-code for a single cue: In the wait-column select the timecode of the cue you want to change, press 'Set' and change the time. Now only this cue will change, not affecting the others. If you want to change all the c…
  • I recently had a show with 2 DP's and 8 DMX-lines. The least used line had 469 channels. Everything worked perfectly, no hick-ups, no delays, nothing. I know I couldn't do this like 8 months ago, so software is improving. It was mostly moving light…
  • Of course, keystroke macro's would be great for these sort of things. Hope to have them soon! At the moment I just type the groupnumber in the Comment window of the cue, so I can easily find the right group to update.
  • I always use View 11 to 20 for mediaservers. When programming them, it's easy to switch to the other views.
  • This would definetely be usefull. Also when programming large rigs, two programmer screens would be great.
  • This is not a bug. As far as I know only windows with palettes can split.
  • I guess you mean the frontpanel? If it is, this is how to get it back: Close the active windows in one of the screens and right-click in the black. Now press 'Toggle Front Panel'. Gr. Pim
  • I like the clear as it is. Just simple 1x Clear to clear everything. I also work a lot on the GrandMA, and I hardly use 1x & 2x Clear. I always use the quicky for 3x Clear.
  • I have a sort of the same way situation. This year I do a lot of festivals in Holland with the Hog3. I have all the festival related cuelists starting from 1. On List 401 I started with special cuelists for bands. As most bands visit more then one f…
  • I'm aware of the issues you mention Marty, I do run into those as well every now and then, and bugs are logged for it. I could not find anything about the missing attritubes, but I think it has been around for a long time as well.
  • Michael, Thanks for the explanation. I can see the advantages of leaving the fixtures in the programmer while working in a cuelist. But when having different fixtures in each cue for an intensity-chase or a colour-bump it's a lot more work to updat…
  • The option 'Close on Update' is on. The options 'Close on Clear', 'Update on Deactivate' and 'Open as Inactive' are off. I worked with the Default Blind State set as 'Blind' and 'Asserted'. No difference.
  • Let's take a GrandMA and run Hog 3PC on it!
  • Yes, the programmer was empty. For example: Deskchannel 1 to 5 are at 50% in Cue 1. Deskchannel 6 to 10 are at 50% in Cue 2. Open Cue 1, adjust to 70%, press 'next' and then 'update'. Deskchannel 1 to 5 stay in the programmer, deskchannel 6 to 10 …
  • me too please...
  • I always use Active Iso Burner, very easy, small and free peace of software to burn Iso-images on a CD. Never had any problem.
  • What you mean is copy the cuelist for a couple of movers only, right? If this is what you mean, that's really easy: Select the fixtures you want to have in your new cuelist. Press: 'List X' (the list with the information for all fixtures) 'Cop…
  • Using 'Cue X + Position + Colour + Beam Time Y' does indeed work very well, I've never knew this. Again learnt something that makes my life on the Hog easier. That desk keeps suprising me every time... And then the million-dollar-question? Why do…
  • Maybe Position + Colour + Beam Time X works, But Position Time X Colour Time Y does not work.
  • There is one thing, and I don't know if this is a bug or not: You can only use one attribute at a time, you can't combine them, ie,: Cue 4, Position Time 2, Colour Time 4.
  • You can't use 'Time + X', but I like the idea. But you can use the encoder-wheel to change the time for all your different fixtures. Press 'Time', select 'Intensity'. Now use the encoder-wheel and the time changes with steps of 0.5 seconds. "Also…
  • Hello Justin, I've done a lot what you are about to do. Here are some tips wich can make it easier (I hope, it worked for me...):44.. For conventionals: Name all your deskchannels in the patch, this makes it easier to patch it everyday. For e…
  • I use all the Hog's, and do not have any problem with the RoadHog. They work as good as the big Hog, also with all the 4 lines in use. I have a USB-zipdrive, so I can work on any Hog3-desk and still have all my show- and preference-files. Works r…
    in Roadhog Comment by PimmerPacK May 2008
  • You can set the fan at the desired percentage and then 'park' it. Now it'll keep running, and does not cost you a playback. Also 'Pig' + 'Release' will not shut it off. You can set the smoke under a fader or make it a virtual master and toggle it o…
  • I noticed a major growth of Hog3 platform-consoles in the world in the last 2 years, so sales must be good. For a band I am touring with I always spec anything Hog3 when I can't bring my own console, 2 years ago this was pretty difficult to get one…
  • Oh no... Not a Hog4 already! Pleasy finish this one first!
  • There are a lot of differences between the Pearl 2000 and the Hog3. I am mostly working on a Hog3-platform desk (Roadhog, iPC, III), but still frequently work on a Pearl (2004, 2008, Expert). I like them both, but I would choose a Hog3 for any type …
  • It was a long day of programming untill doors, then continuing in blind mode untill show. But the show was there! Wow, what a difference between then and now. I hate to say it, but damn, what was that a crappy desk back then... It is funny to see s…
  • It does look great, but I doubt I'll ever use it with a Hog3. My wing(s) is/are always next to the board, so a USB-cable is sufficient. Why take the risk of eventual problems or slowdowns by using wireless USB?
  • I have used an Exp. Wing on an iPC, no problems with that.
  • Hello Frank, I've stored your number, can always be usefull! What do you use now for to split the SMPTE-signal? As far as I know the audio-company (Ampco) will take care of the SMPTE-runs, so I'll contact them to see what they use. Thanks Jaso…
  • I do really like the idea. Now I make several group-views with IPCB-windows where needed on view 1 through 8 and 2 show-views on 9 and 10. What I would like, wich might be easier to implement, is a previous button (instead of using Pig+Next), so …
  • Ok, thanks! Makes sense, and now I'm sure. I'll get the supplier to bring an LTC-Widget, SMPT-splitters and a converter and I'll be fine. Gr. Pim
  • I bought a new system from Alienware last october, and they advised me to install XP. So I did, and no regrets with that as I hear many people around me with Vista-problems. Gr. Pim
  • Hello Brad, Thanks for the answer. The USB Widget will be the first choice then. I'm sure it will work as good as a direct midi-input. And for the the timecode output, does it not output timecode when just simulating output, or also whit the S…
  • That's good to hear. It does look like the most simple solution.
  • They look great! But like Marty said; Nothing beats the look of a full Hog3 with Expansion-wing :headbang:
  • The cheap stuff works. As long as they work, not mentioning lightning or powerfailure or whatever. Just a real example: I'm touring with a band all over the world. In Europe we mostly do a full-production tour. I always have ELC Splitters. Wich ar…
  • I like the bubble-idea! A nice clean environment, easy to ignore the crowd and the sound-guy. Do they come with a build-in toilet and a bed? I could just live in there for a whole festival, and come home clean!
  • I mostly use ELC splitters, in combination with ELC-nodes. Also very reliable and stable. I always see DMX as rigging: It is as strong as the weakest link. You can have a brand new expensive desk, and huge rig with many expensive movers, why tak…
