  • And here we are, three years later and still no autopalette for multi-intensity fixtures. (And I too have made this request face to face with reps from HES at LDI.)
  • ONM....kind masking required to merge time.....H/T to Scott Barnes for that info...
  • Seeing something similar still happening with merge....been meaning to search the forums. Cue 1 running...Select heads, change values, merge to Cue 1. Clear programmer. New values not outputting. Assert Cue 1 and then it finally changes. Have …
  • No. The servers will have to have two different port numbers. And they will be running different shows. Stage 27, say, could be Port 6627, and Stage 7 could be Port 6607; just change the port number on the startup screen on HPC to log on or off. …
  • Colin, maybe try running HogPC on another Windows CPU (something inexpensive like a netbook works great) and log your WH3 onto it as a client. I and others also find this is a VERY stable configuration for the network. And I think it's faster....n…
  • Hey fellas, same problems over here (which is why I'm searching the forums....) Fujitsu Tablet Win. 7, WHIII, Acer Notebook (server) Win7, DP2000, all on v3.1.9. My question is this: What should the gateway, netmask and DNS for each component be s…
  • Just as a side note, and we are not using any DP8Ks OR 3.1.8 so this might be totally off topic, but we currently have a network consisting 1-Laptop running HogPC3 in Windows XP as a server, 1-WH3 console, 1-Hitachi tablet running HogPC3 on Windows …
  • Other things to check, in "settings" at the opening window, make sure the port number on which you're running your show is the same as the port number on your DP. Default is 6600, but sometimes it gets changed. Another thing, are you using stat…

  • Thanks Steph....I was posting there hoping to reach the widest audience, time was of the essence.
  • I did my programming on the WH3 Console. The server was unaffected, just the client crashed.
  • Aside from the visualiser issues, from a programming standpoint, I question why there is a need for Hog PC for a Mac. An expensive truth is that most current Macs can run Windows, switching back and forth is easy, and then the mac can be used as a…

  • A note on manual IP addressing, which is really the best policy with the networks...although setting down a list of all your devices and writing out your IP addresses for each ahead of time is a good way to keep things organized and clear, i.e. all …

  • Just a comment regarding goto...this is something I've noticed from time to time over several versions of software...goto sometimes just doesn't work. "Goto" appears in the command line and everything, but it doesn't activate the cue. (I have a w…
  • This is my caveat with the LTC widget...it's best to get your timecode from a source that has a gain control, I've found on numerous occasions that the timecode input to the LTC Widget needs to be amplified for it run smoothly and properly. (And th…
  • Thanks Josh.
  • When I'm programming a single channel as a random intensity effect for a flicker (think television set, movie projector, candlelight, firelight) the "random" effect is not random, i.e. it seems to pick a series of six or eight values at random and c…
  • Yes, it's tempting isn't it, to try to make color effects in the effects engine using specific colors only, but I have yet to do it successfully myself. Close on occasion, by messing with the starting values and efffects sizes etc. but still not ev…
  • You can also record+remove an effect without making an Effect Off pallette by record+remove and selecting the "E" button to mask Effect. Nonetheless, it still requires record+remove twice. There's a good possibility stray effects will be vexing do…
  • Scott, Brad, thanks for the heads up on the new build. Brad, just a clarification, Show One and Show Two that I mention in my post only refer to how we organized playback through Logic Express. Perhaps I should have referred them as Act One, etc. …
  • Ok, so, finally, finally, I've figured out the timecode bug. The setup is this, timecode coming in from a playback track on Logic Express outputting from a macbook into a Saffire audio device (sketchy on the details of this piece of equipment) and …
  • Hmm. Strobing dimmers? The feared "disco effect"? I've had these same troubles many times with Strand CD80 20Kw dimmers and 6x12 CD packs, as have several of my colleagues. And I have noticed it ocurring in terminated lines and disappearing witho…

  • I'm familiar with Remote Desktop, I've used that as a WiFi remote focus unit between two HogPCs. I guess the setup would then be a console with a PC with HogPC attached and the HogPC would be the server and thus the console the client? Then it wou…
  • Cormac, thanks for pointing me towards that stuff. It is great for setting up a network but there's no information at all about how to set it up for working with the internet. My hunch is that the solution lies in turning of DHCP on the console and…
  • Sami, RE: CD time-> timecode converter. Are you trying to create timecode from a CD or read timecode recorded on a CD? The internal CD drive on the WH3 of course will output/generate timecode but it will be relative to that particular CD's sta…
  • probably the longest lag ever between a post and a response...but thanks. Nice tip about 'brake', btw.
  • Wow. I thought we were all friends here. I didn't think I was bitching, I thought I was requesting an improvement. Thanks for the hookup on dropping the timecode numbers in, I'll check it out. (BTW, if you've written a couple hundred thousand t…
  • Brad, I guess I wasn't clear. I don't want to 'learn timing.' I already know timing, the timing is where we have stopped the playback and wrote the look and recorded it. Then I have to go in and manually type in the timecode? We're talking some…
  • Hara-san Yes it is manual 1.3 As for the Japanese, you can thank the Dashboard translation widget. Dave
  • Ok, here's a sorta effective solution to the single value question... Select fixtures making sure that the source fixture is selected FIRST, then select the fixtures or fixtures to which you want to copy a particular single parameter value. Then ho…
  • Yes, that's possible, but I like the idea of being able to choose specific elements of parameters in an editor and paste them in somewhere down the list, such as a particular tilt position for example, rather than copying all the elements of a param…
  • for getting my hopes up. rrrrrip- out goes page 122.
  • Could you do it with Intensity, Hue, Color, etc.? Thanks, Dave
  • Right on. I especially like numbers 5 and 6.
  • Tom, Regarding your use of notes as "To Do" reminders, these notes would function more as "Was Done" reminders. I originally had the idea for a simple scratch pad and it was expanded when I thought that attaching notes to cells might be a nice fea…
  • So the cue copy does work, but the syntax, List+w Cue+x Copy to List+y Cue+z seems a bit long. I have a 26 cue chase that now needs to run backwards, Cue 26 to Cue 1 and the only way I can run it backwards is with chase direction set to "down" and …
  • Have you tried loading the fixture into your programmer and hoding down "knockout" and pressing the effect button?
