  • To grab information from a single cue I know that you can use the Copy button without setting a destination. The syntax looks something like [List] X [Cue] Y Copy to [Enter] You should be able to mask this but I do not know the exact syntax off t…
  • So I got a chance to play around with my board tonight and I have not come up with an exact 100% way to recreate this. I have found out though that when the board "locks up" the console is actually still functioning except that the front panel is no…
  • Michael, I just uploaded the show to wetransfer. I talked with my other operator who was the one working on the board when it crashed the second time and he is pretty sure that there were no effects running when it crashed. I also checked and no dum…
  • tymon;58218 said:no, not really - size should be 40%. Thanks for clarifying that. I couldn't remember if the size was adjusted around the center point or if it was the total amplitude. >.< tymon;58218 said:btw. "center value - size" effect p…
  • When you create an effect palette you want to make sure your recording as a "global" palette (applies to every fixture type with that parameter) or a "per type" palette (applies to every fixture of that type ie all your Mac 250s). To do this you mak…
  • To accomplish this effect you will need to first set the intensity of your Macs to 60%. The open the effect editor (double tap the effect button) and set a sine wave on the intensity. Set the size to 80% and viola you should have your fading effect …
  • Unfortunately the limiting factor with the color power (the brain) is that it can only physically power 12 fixtures because the color power is supplying the power for the color control system (cmy flags and diffuser system) within the color command.…
  • What type of HES equipment are you working on? Can't really answer your question without this bit of information.
  • For your IPCB fader go into the master options menu and set the play button to skip forward and the pause button to skip back. This way you can scroll through the cue list and the cue will not go until you move the fader above 0%. Also check to see …
  • I actually found a 60 minute clip of SMPTE to play with and did just as you suggested. Everything worked like a champ and I was surprised how incredibly easy it was to get my light show programed. Out of curiosity how would I go about generating my …
  • chadl;50900 said:Kevin, those are great idea's and almost gets me to what I'm looking for. The only flaw is that if I choose to add a channel or remove a channel, I'd still have to go back into each cue and change that. Hmm...that does present a pr…
  • I'm not entirely sure this will work, but for your stage look can you make an intensity pallet and just reference that pallet in your cues? This way when you want to change your stage look you just have to update the pallet and not worry so much abo…
  • WinRAR by default will associate a *.iso file with itself because an iso is just a container for a bunch of files packed inside and WinRAR is capable of extracting those files. This does not mean you are downloading a *.rar file. I would suspect tha…
  • There is an option in the cuelist option menu for reset on release. This will reset your cuelist back to the first cue when it is released. This should be what your looking for.
  • In that cuelist spreadsheet that you are looking at there is a column called "mark" Select the cue that you wish to mark and then hit "set" in the mark cell pertaining to that cue.
  • This is exactly what I'm seeing. I posted in this thread originally http://forums.highend.com/showthread.php?t=7687 but I think this is a better place for it.
  • I've had issues on my RHFB with your second comment. Occassionally I think I will button mash my screens enough that it ends up breaking how scenes and lists are selected. When I touch a scene or list the software thinks I'm holding the list or scen…
  • To accomplish this through the effects engine I first set pan to a sine wave function. Then on the intensity I set my base value to 0% and apply a step function on top of it at a 90 degree offset and 100% size. Both the pan and the intensity effect …
  • The Power Factor Correction explanation makes sense when you have a physical dimming circuit between your switching power supply and your power source. My question is can you still potentially damage your PSU's if instead of a dimmer you use a relay…
  • What I have found easiest to do in this situation is to record the effect palette with just the position, beam, color parameters effecting 1 fixture as global parameters. So if I am making the fixtures perform a circle the only data in the effect pa…
  • Sorry for the late reply but I haven't been near my console all week to pull the show file from. When I got here today I was trying to recreate the lock up by switching pages and I could not get it to crash. I tried all the different options for sw…
  • Sorry to be kind of off topic because I don't have an answer to your question. But you ask with regards to the Hog2. I'm wondering if this is available in the Hog3 also.
  • So just to clarify. I have a RHFB in a church installation with a Unison Architechtural system. When I upgrade to 3.0 the RH will keep alive the DMX output even after the board is powered down? I don't see this being a problem because I'm in the hab…
  • Marty Postma said:Jeff, - HES/FPS has been working on the DP-8000 for some time now which will include ArtNet output. I have not heard a solid release date for this yet, but I know it will be soon. When this new DP gets released, the software that…
