  • I don't think you can insert a link at an arbitrary location in your list -- that is, it only inserts at your current location in the list. So if you know what you are going to skip before starting the show it can work, but not so practical if you'…
  • Yeah, I've very intentionally kept my lighting network separate from the in-house network and off the radar of our IT guys.
  • If your programmer is available to use in the blind mode, then I believe you can use "copy cue# [state] enter", to bring those values into the programmer, then record them back into the same cue with "merge cue# enter".
  • For clarification, recording groups always only looks at the selected fixtures, correct? I don't think there is a need to do more --> selected in this case.
  • Alternatively, make your standard houselight cue list an HTP fader so you don't have to worry about releasing specific fixtures.
  • As a general rule you usually don't want to drag the complete "show" folder onto a usb stick as copying an uncompressed show takes a ridiculously long time. Just copy the backups and it only takes a couple seconds.
  • If you turn on the auto-backup feature in each of your shows then you should always have a reliable backup stored on disk (from the last time you used that show) I don't know about dragging and dropping, but I believe you can right click a folder…
  • My understanding is that the current functionality is as intended, and that the command line has a bug (there was a thread on this a while back). Having it only select up to the break in numbering is also quite useful - I intentionally put breaks i…
  • Brad, I uploaded a showfile. It's an older version of the one I'm working with, but I just tried it out with Hog3PC v3.0.4 and see the exact same behavior. Just the cuelist title gets highlighted blue. thanks.
  • I gave support a call yesterday and we regained CMA connection. I'm not sure what exactly the issue was, but we removed the router from the network and also power-cycled a network switch. After that the CMA connected no problem. I haven't tried…
  • I was on v1.4.0 before. I'm going to try power cycling the fixtures, then I'll try reloading the older CMA version. Thanks for your quick responses!
  • It is not initially on multiple pages, but once it turns blue after trying to delete it, it remains there when I change pages.
  • Yes, I have tried that (just tried it again). No joy.
  • We've used the same keyboard and mouse with this desk for over two years without issue, so I was assuming that wasn't the problem. In your experience, can these go bad over time and cause problems?
  • What do you know, you're right about IPCB guard (of course). My apologies, I never had any need for it with those pallets so I never really registered it existed.
  • I think pressing list then touching cuelist 'xx' is pretty unambiguous. It should behave the exact same as pressing list then typing ##, where ## corresponds to 'xx'. There's no guard function for IPCB, but maybe that has something to do with wh…
  • You should have numbered the bug something like 40109 as an extra hint (or 10409 for the europeans).
  • Marty, That sounds a lot like what I've been seeing, although it definately affects non HTP faders as well.
  • Ran into this again. I'm still using release 3.0.0 I found that unpacking old shows (made previous to 3.0.0) reproduces this behavior every time. The first time building the show from backup file, it comes up with all faders / cues unresponsive…
  • if you have a spare universe, you could patch it with the nondim settings, then just swap the dmx cable back and forth as appropriate
  • do a google search for usb over ethernet and you'll find some options...
  • I haven't tried it lately so I can't confirm that it hasn't changed. The function Eric is describing, I believe, is when you have any color mixing fixture in the programmer with values for HS already applied. If you want it to be CMY instead, yo…
  • with the keyboard in "map" mode, you can hold down back space while touching a parameter wheel.
  • working from memory here, but I think this is the right steps... Choose the fixtures that you want to record, press record and notice the options available at the bottom of the right screen, there should be an option for 'more' on the far right, ch…
  • Make sure the pc is running the same software version as the console.
  • Yeah, the off functionality is basically what I'm looking for, but in a more intentional and flexible way than the 'merging a cue-only' method. I wasn't aware that GMA already did this, and I guess that answers the question that at least some peopl…
  • I'm not sure what parking would have to do with this. Here's the scenario I had in mind: You have a master cuelist for your show. Midway through you want the ability to do some random stuff with your movers on other cuelists. When that is done yo…
  • "if the change in DMX value is not large enough over a set time" If the set time is 0sec, then the change/time is infinite no matter how small the change and should therefore be above the threshold. The algorithm you describe should be able to ha…
  • Just curious, does this new behavior for widgets affect the way the iPC works, as it is using a super widget? I can log off and maintain last output? thanks.
  • If you don't want them to always be separated (say you just have a few pallets where you want them to be seperated) you can always knockout any unwanted parameters before recording. Hold the back-arrow key while touching the parameter wheel.
  • You can't record attributes into "groups" - they are for fixture selection only. So if you want the information in your programmer, it is a two step process of choosing the group with the fixtures you want, then applying the pallet with position, c…
  • I too would enjoy this capability. Anyone know if there is a technical reason why this feature hasn't been implemented with the windows based systems? I have always assumed it was a marketing decision to add value to the full H3 console (iPC, RH,…
  • Great. Thanks Marty.
  • Thanks for the input. So about creating new shows vs using shows created in older versions. As our system is a permanent install at a church, we normally have a single show that gets updated from week to week and we just keep using it as the sof…
  • you can copy cues into desired location, delete old cue, then rename / renumber as appropriate. If you're using tracking though, there might be some unexpected results.
  • Left click the track ball button when it starts animating and it will skip over it (at least on my iPC it does).
  • You've given me a few ideas, Jon. Thanks. It seems you don't use your programmer window much? I use my programmer window all the time, can't get by without it. Almost never use the output window though, only when something is behaving oddly an…
  • Are the red and green from the previous cue set in HS or CMY colorspace? If they are in CMY that might cause that, but not sure.
  • If you're using only conventionals and some LED's, you might not need the programmer to take up a full screen since you don't have many columns of data to display. You could use side by side windows on that monitor to give access to something else,…
  • If I'm understanding you correctly, you need to first patch your dimmers. These are called "desk channels" and you'll find them in the generic section of the fixture schedule. Read your manual to learn about patching. The board won't send any thi…
  • cool. thanks for the reply.
  • from my experience, sometimes I have tell the "server not responding" message to keep trying a couple of times before it finally launches the server.
  • Jeroen, you currently can associate scrollers with their dimmer channel. you patch it as a "scroller dimmer" and it gives you a choice of two patch points. Although, by "organize" perhaps you mean simply some better way of displaying things in the…
  • I'll give that a try. But I'm afraid changing the timings will throw off my programming rhythm. It would be a usefull enhancement.
  • make sure both the PC and the console are running the exact same version of H3 software. If they're not, it doesn't give an error... it just won't work.
  • I haven't yet tried to reproduce the crash, ,but I'll see if can this weekend. We've been using the USB switch for over a year now and routinely flip flop keyboard and mouse back and forth from the iPC and our desktop. It's possible that the swi…
  • Plus (as far as I'm aware) the H3 is the only console that supports direct macro control of it's CD player. Not sure how much use that gets in the real world, but I wished we had it on our iPC when we had to program a lightning effect to occur simu…
  • Actually, I think both your questions are answered by making backup show files. 1) With your template show open, go to Setup->Shows->Backup to create a backup file of the show. It will have all the show info including pallets, patch, etc. W…
  • you do not want to use the loopback. You must first select the network card adapter at the top. After entering the numbers, then be sure to click 'use this adapter for show'.
  • v2.5.0 will install on SP3, but earlier versions won't.
