  • I talked with Colin about this at a training session recently, its seems to me odd that the fader rate at stop for example would be at the top rather than the bottom, I personally would love the ability to choose to alter this.
  • I would have thought if your settings for the list or seen are correct then it should not, in my case I record something, then in options check the er..... I don't have anything hog near me, by the flash button setting is a couple of boxes on and re…
  • Run out of room there. One chap with LED things had some bother with his white point as he used HSI and although we managed to get a better white via CMY+W er, RGB+W as the 2 are not connected again the update failed to make it to the programmed sho…
  • Abstraction is what the super computer "The Abstractor" does, when not solving the worlds problems, answering all the questions of the universe and everything it tries the impossible and create fixture files. In my mind this beast is in a room on to…
  • Not sure people are saying it doesn't work, only that it is not very easy, that it can be confusing, long winded. Personally I think it needs a re-work, make it less daft to interrogate, update from the edit, make everything user sortable for exampl…
  • Can I actually get a continuous parameter on anything? I can do this with colour, but never managed it on "everything" +1 on sorted alphabetically. A VL4000 is not enough Marc, I get more colour problems that anything else, so I have a profile …
  • The builder works for sure, somewhat of a time vampire though. Most of the time I would be just attempting to correct a personality in the library which happens to be needed more than is acceptable in my view. I think being able to by pass real wor…
  • The old lady is retired Marc, I know many of the shows this loverly lady did. she will not meet the trade in hammer I quite like the old way in general, I move stuff holding the move key, then this and here or command line, not going to get rid of …
  • i must be getting old, the last flashing machines i used do it move this here etc which need no punctuation, its a winner, just check the guard while i am at it I just like poking screens using the Queens, gawd bless her.
  • Been that way as long as I can remember, I prefer the last way to be honest, when doing the this: move: here thing I will at some point to it will go Hog 2 style which is somewhat more natural to me, move: this: here.....then I clear the long red li…
  • I agree with this and love Colin's take on it.
  • Marc, I kinda think they way I would do things, a VM fired from the main playback is a list for me if it requires complex time or its a one shot run of something, if its simple 4 step something simple, then its a chase. The first way is done with…
  • I would personally say in a list that is a chase that speed and crossfade are the most important things, I do not think i would ever have FX involved, not to say some folk might like to do all that, but if running a chase these are important parts t…

  • Colin asked me to try this on a non motor fader console RH4 and I see the same thing as he does
  • Got a touch screen 8.1 windows laptop, no problems here, prefer the less fussy 7, but it came like this and not causing any problems that i should think to change.
  • I was using a Chamsys system last year and I had the option of putting a fade time on the front and back of a flash button, where I used it was to give some LED into the same fade out as the par cans, worked very nicely. I would say what would be…
  • I would quite like that Sami: I have a couple of cues in a show that deal with intensity like that, 0 fade with a fanned delay and the same out. Thats on 3 cues at the moment Cue 1 infade, Cue 2 outfade, Cue 3 release master which the flash as a …
  • Agreed, I was hoping they could be used like a VM, so hold the list/group and roll in and out with the encoder, free up the faders. I am hoping in the long run that as the screens are so large we would be able to configure banks of virtual faders to…
  • If you want the inhibits in the same place all the time, then thats the way to go I would think, if you want more playbacks on one page for some reason, you can move something or record something straight to the playback and the inhibit is gone. Don…
  • I have 4 groups on inhibit masters which i use for programming, just to take out a group of lights to see what another group of lights is doing, also use them to trim LED at shows, mine stay at the same level on page change, I use them on a template…
  • If you put the scene into the programmer and hit update expect it what to update the thing you just did. Try this: You have your list chosen, open up the scene as you did and you see that look change on stage, then just press "record then merge a…
  • I would take some time to look at the cue list window, look at the window itself, look at the cells in the cue list window and open them up, like wait cell, its got a lot of stuff to help execute cues. The fade and delay columns should make sense, b…
  • The videos are a great way to get up and running, very well thought out.
  • When you select this option then the cue list becomes a chase, its speed and crossfade you can adjust pressing the choose button. If you want part of a cue list to become a chase, then you could use insert link option which allows you to loop som…
  • If you mean naming the macro, open the macro box up and guard it and touch the macro cell and press set, or you could just press an empty cell if un-guarded and use the left/right/up/down keys to the cell and press set.

  • Just a note on the rotating gobo thing: To my mind if the fixture has its rotating gobo on gobo 2 as an example, thats fine. The cue has a break up with slowly rotates. I update a gobo, say slot 2 on gobo wheel 2, then update the slow rotation pa…

  • I am no sure this is so black or white...excuse the pun. I have had auto coloured buttons changing colour completely, in the case of a fixture that had inverted RGB values, so my yellow palette went blue, the palette when selected gave yellow, bu…
  • I was hoping to see some answers to your questions, like you I seem to have some difficulties very much like yourself regarding colour and beam parameters.
  • just playing with this a bit: If I patch a fixture, be it a CMY or colour wheel fixture then merge kinds, views, macros then I can add colour wheel fixtures and have encoder control of colour wheel one, so if I merge just macros before patching a fi…
  • Just an update to this from me: Decided to start again with the show as i have a bit of downtime. The show has nothing in it apart from imported views. Patched a colour wheel fixture and have the same problem. This is a fresh show and there are no u…
  • there will be a couple of built fixtures in mine, sure of that, but not used in shows, will play with that with this info given when i get chance
  • ahhh...... It seems i can use the Nano apart form playback faders until I select the Nano as a console on wings, then the playback part works........
  • thanks Colin, found a Hog 3 which appeared to have the fixture, so merged and was good to go, seems strange its in a hog 3 and not in the 4.
  • Mine is a Hog 4 show, done last February when my Roadhog arrived, been living with it since that show was done, its annoying when the fixture at the show slots are out of sync, but I prefer to live with it than start a new show due to the time alrea…
  • In China and on my mobile Michael, Will send my show as soon as I can, this has been a problem for me for ages, I have a Roadhog normally and have this problem on a couple of shows, starting a new show cures the problem, but as I said this show has …
  • Its a quick way to overcome the slots being incorrect Marc, if I had time I might prefer to edit the slots, but I guess you end up with a user fixture that took some time to build against something that takes a couple of minutes to do, I think I wil…
  • I have been having this problem with a couple of shows that are too advanced to start again, the merge new show does not work, so stuck with using the slots tool bar to get or update colour. In China at the moment and what I feared was some Clay …
