  • Put all your fixtures in Magenta, then use the Mark Off table to bump the Magenta channel to 0. Size should be 100%. Then randomise your selection order and fan the offset. Either that or use the Step table with Magenta at 50% and alter the size …
  • I have some out at the moment too. You can patch multiparty fixtures as one or just do the Beam/Aura separately and use groups/grouping & selection tools when programming. I patched my show (not on Hog) like this.... Beam fixture has beam,…
  • A little work around to CITP I found was console allowing gobo images... For example, I work regularly with a console that allows me to add images of the gobos, colours etc as part of the Fixture Profile. So rather than networking the desk with t…
  • Ahh ok thanks Marty... My time spent on other desks shows ;-) Thanks,
  • I would like to have it in the desk settings so we could literally turn tracking off globally. I do a lot of TV work and very few people here use Tracking. Thanks,
  • The FB is a great desk, at a fair price providing good feature set and output capability. However, I have always preferred the "sleeker" Hog 3 console over the FB. It feels nicer, its physically slimmer, the screens are adjustable which helps your s…
  • Hey Joshua, When I started it, I didn't think it would last 1 month let alone this long. Sorry for your discomfort. Hope your well too Thanks.
  • When I started this thread, I didn't realise it was going to get anywhere... let a lot get more than 12,000 views! I think Hog 4 should be a mix of the great consoles already on the market, with the Wholehog simplicity and power behind it. IF the…
  • Hi Abbe, I didn't think Barco would part with any and its good policy keeping the demo kit off projects, the customer has the power! So you reckon 4 DMLs would cover an ice rink!? Can you mail me a list of DML suppliers in Northern Europe ple…

  • Ahh ok Mat. 64 total it is! What's the limit in the DML-1200? And Thanks Marty... Thanks.
  • Just a quicky Marty... What's the largest DL3 collage you have tried in the field? I know the largest possible is 64x64, but what have you tried? Thanks,
  • Use the FIXTURE LINK port on the Full Boar. Then use the IN Port on the Maxedia. Thanks.
  • Brad's book is a good start. He lists 10 common chases in his book which is a good to know. the Light Network is also a good source of knowledge -
  • I started a thread called "Wholehog 4" in the summer of last year. I was just asking openly if anyone thought HES should make one. It remained a hot topic until recently. However like Jon said there was something on LN and I have heard some rumours …
  • I hope we see both an iPhone app AND an Android app. I have an iPhone 4, never had an Android but I wouldn't want people to have to buy an iPod/iPad/iPhone just for the sake of the App!! Thanks,
  • I had this quite abit on Vista (because Vista is pants), I remember Chris getting mine sorted, but sometimes it helps to right click on the Hog 3PC icon and "Run as Administrator". Short of that, I am sure Chris will get you sorted Thanks,
  • If we are talking about exporting patch here... Does anybody else think it would be a good options to be able to export the patch to CSV format? I havn't used Excel to its full form in a while, but I seem to remember being able to use CSV with Excel…

  • You could always program the tour on a Hog 3, thereby utilizing the extra buttons and wheels, then tour it on the Full Boar? Best Regards,
  • First check the widget has the appropriate indication lights on. The widget may be idle. You cannot open the configuration tab until you have something patched, until then the DP will remain idle. Patch something and you should be able to open the c…
  • bradpepe wrote: » Joe, However your idea is a good one and we do have some plans for the future to assist with visualization of our Pixellation fixtures... Hi Brad, Anymore news on this? Can we expect any advances on this feature this year?…
  • Well I suppose if you had a DP8k instead of a 2k you could use Art-Net and use an Art-Net merger. But yea, convert to shows and go Hog throughout ;-) Best Regards,
  • Misebeam wrote: » Ahh okay, A DMX merger. I did not know if you could actually do that with a splitter. I am running My WholeHog iPC, and laptop (Hog PC) on Ethernet with a DP2000. I just did not want to mention the "other source" which only ru…

  • I take jobs after looking at a few things... The venue(s) - If we are touring nice venues that I have had no trouble with, then I will take it. The Console choice. Usually the Programmer chooses the console... but I do know a few LDs who will on…
  • I also have to echo these comments. The control systems platform is getting noticeably better with every release! Lest we forget the dedicated members who take their time to participate in the Beta cycles. Whilst I myself am not part of it anymor…

  • In all honesty, CITP can be more of a hinderance than a help. I am programming a Vector at the minute with Hippo's and CITP only makes me squint more at the screen... Now bi-directional DMX is another thing entirly!! I wish we were able to do som…
  • Pretty much what Marty said... then you can use an SDI capture card to get the Axon output into the pixelmapping computer or server. Best,

  • Not currently. Sorry. Best,

  • Network tracking... no. You can link two consoles using MSC. However you need 2 sets of DPs, 2 consoles and DMX switching equipment. Effectivly you have to have a second system in sync with the primary one ready to take over should the main se…
  • You can type in the macro using a keyboard if you know the exact syntax. It is covered in the manual. (Which is avaliable on the console) Regards,

  • Oh and if you decide to "bypass" this, HES will not support you if anything goes wrong. It doesnt bother me as a user because I use 32bit throughout. However it does seem a hinderence to other users. If you do a quick search, I am sure you will f…
