    Point cue numbering / display

    Hi Martin, The way ZerOS displays Point Cues is relatively standard across the industry. Point Cues are primarily designed as a method of adding in “extra” cues, and so usually a single decimal place is ample. Jon

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hello, In response to your FLX questions: 1/ You can record cues in whatever order you want. On all ZerOS consoles (FLX, FLX S, Solution etc) there is a maximum cue count of 10,000, so as long as you are recording within this range you will be fine. Regarding programming in a random order, you could also consider programming each rehearsal group as a separate Playback fader, as each playback can contain multiple cues. Or you can add in “Next” cues into cue 53 in your example, that will jump you back to cue 35 automatically. You are also able to record empty cues and give them names if you wish to visually indicate what you need to record, and then update them at a later date. 2/ You can record on FLX to 2 decimal places, therefore you can actually have 99 cues between 2 whole cue numbers. There is no Insert button like there is on Jester, as you just type the cue number you want after tapping record. For example typing RECORD 1.5 tap Master Playbacks button, will store your cue as 1.5 onto the master playback. 3/ You can copy playbacks, and also copy cues. When copying cues you can copy them to a new location in the Playback, or copy them to a cue in a different playback. 4/ Updating cues is very easy on FLX, as after updating a cue the values are automatically grabbed into the cue, so you don’t need to clear the programmer- useful for on the fly updates. FLX is as standard a Tracking console, which means updating a cue can automatically update subsequent cues for you if needs be. 5/ Addition of Wings does not increase Playback count- this is still limited to 240 plus the master playback (241). However with a maximum of 6 Wings connected via a USB hub, it gives you hands on access to extra channels or playbacks, reducing the need to change pages in a large show. 6/ As point 3, you can copy cues around to whatever playback you want. 7/ For a list of compatible touch screens, see below... http://support.zero88.com/975056031 We do have an ongoing list of potential training videos, that are in the pipeline to be made in the future. Regarding possible effects, FLX consoles have 32 in-built effects, plus the ability to apply custom effects to each parameter per fixture. The video below shows you the ability to offset these effects... Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hello, Some questions... FLX (I did not find the answers in the manual or not sure to have understand...) 1 / In the shows I do, artists often do not come in the same order in repetition and show. So my normal working is in theater mode, i.e. effect 1, 2, 3, 4, etc ... When I'm going to record the cues with the double playback button (equivalent to a GO) how should I proceed? Can I assign numbers as I 've during repetitions? Example at rehearsal groupe 1 at 14H00: cues 50, 51, 52, 53 Then at rehearsal Dancer 3 at 14H30 : Cue 35, 36, 37, 38, etc ... So at 15H00 before coming next group, I will have recording 35, 36, 37, 38, 50, 51, 52, 53 Or is it impossible? Or should I record empty cues, and make updates when the artists are there? In normal show I Have about 150 to 250 cues 2 / Insertion of cues? For example on the jester I have the CUE 1, 2, 3, etc ... And when I want to insert something, I have 1, then "1.5", 2, 3 ... Is it possible on the FLX ? 3 / Moving a cue somewhere ? Possible? exemple from playback 3 to Playback 18... ? 4 / The Update cue function is good for updating the settings of all the projectors that go from the cues and also to add projectors that I had not used before? 5 / Wings Faders : The addition of Wings allows to increase the playback number? Does this also allow 6 / I have a CUE that interests me to copy ... Can I copy it from one playback to another, or from a playback to the double playback button? 7/ For touch monitor, do you have list of compatible monitors ? Thank a lot for your help... PS : Do you think that you will post some other video to help new FLX owner... - for explain how to attribute to Chanel fader, the différents single dimmer and also all different fixture setting... - also how to use Wings fader and the advantage to have wings fader... - Also the effect possibility ? (Exemple for the Chamsys Magic Q, there is some exemple of effect possibly and we see that there is many option...)

    Flicking master playback switches to LX1

    Hi Jim, My first thought would be to take a look in the Playback Settings. Access these by holding SETUP + tapping the Playback’s button. Under Raise & Lower, what is the trigger level set to? If you disable Release on Lower, do you still see the problem? Edward
  8. Try8ng to create an effect by pushing master playback down & up to flicker the lights but if I go further down than 50% playback switches back to LX1. Any ideas? Jim

    Point cue numbering / display

    Hi, interesting approach to that. As I am mainly doing theatre, I used to use the point cues to depict my scenes. And there could be some scenes with over ten cues. So this would look a little bit weird to an operator who has to do the show. But I think we can come along with that. So we could have the following cue stack: ... 1.08 1.09 1.1 1.11 1.12 ... which looks a little bit strange... As I understood, the point cues are limited to 99, so why not always have two decimals after the delimiter? Martin

    Thanks Jon! And ZOS-8669 could be expanded to apply to palettes and cues too - probably pretty much the same code in ZOS that handles this I suspect! I understand adding the name to the message probably wouldn't be feasible if a range was specified.

    Copy Fixtures

    Hi Mitchells, If you want to keep the new LED pars separate, I'm guessing they're going to be doing different things to your existing 8 fixtures, so you'll need to edit your cues for this anyway. Otherwise you can do as Jon suggested, and pair your new fixtures up to your existing fixtures, adding an extra DMX address for each existing fixture, so that you have 2 fixtures responding per channel. Edward

    Copy Fixtures

    So I can't copy a whole fixture, in my first show I had 8 ledpars now I want to update my show to 16. I want to control all of my pars individual but I dont want to program all my cues and chase again

    Point cue numbering / display

    Don't see the numbers after the decimal place as starting to count again, see the whole number as a decimal - just like how a Calcualtor or Excel would see it. 1.1 = 1.10 = 1.100000000000000
  17. Jon Hole

    Copy Fixtures

    However, if you mean add multiple DMX addresses to a single Channel so multiple fixtures are controlled from a single channel and "copy each other" - to do this, go into SETUP > Fixture Schedule, select the DMX Address of the fixture you wish to add a second address for, tap the address, type in the new address and click "Add as additional address".

    Copy Fixtures

    Hello, If you mean copy say channel 1 fixture to 2 so that the same fixture type is patched on multiple channel numbers, you aren't able to do this. You would have to go to Add Fixtures, and patch the new fixture in. If you mean can you copy fixture information from one to another, this is only available on our ORB series consoles. Edward

    Point cue numbering / display

    Hi Martin, The console will always put your cues in to the greatest value it can. Therefore to record the very first available point cue you would have to type .01, rather than .1 - which although the second decimal place is missing is in fact .10, as that is the tenth point cue available. This tidies up the programming, so that every time you have a single point cue between 2 cues you just see .5, rather than .50. Hope that makes sense, Edward
  20. Thanks Edward for your knowledgebase entry. I think it is helpfull. And i used the your knowledgebase befor to find out hints for an external monitor etc. We will see if its indexed bei google.

    Copy Fixtures

    You need to elaborate on what you mean by this, that's quite a vague question...

    Copy Fixtures

    Is it possible to copy fixtures?

    Point cue numbering / display

    Today I found an oddity when recording point cues. For example I record a cue 1.9 - everything is fine. Then I record a cue 1.10, which is displayed in the cue list as 1.1. When I later try to record a cue 1.1, it warns me that cue 1.10 already exists. Strange. It seems that cues with .10 .20 .30 and so on are treated as if the trailing zero doesnt exist. Any ideas?

    Groups/Palettes - UI enhancement requests

    Hi Edward, I need to check this as I was doing that originally and it wasn’t working until I typed the second GROUP.

    Groups/Palettes - UI enhancement requests

    Hi Kevin, Many thanks for your comments. In a future software update, we are going to be improving the FLX copying, and also bring the "Move" functionality. Currently regarding copying groups, once you've tapped GROUP at the start of the syntax, you don't need to tap it again. For example GROUP 1 COPY 2. This saves a button press, but I appreciate your suggestion is a little more user-friendly, rather than fully syntax based. Edward
  26. (1) Use touch screen for group copy target. Current: (syntax) GROUP n <COPY to> GROUP m Enh: GROUP n <COPY to> <touch group> (2) Add group name to any messages talking about the group. This is because you get a blank screen with only this message, so have to think "Is group 16 really my blinders?" Current: DELETE GROUP n (or touch) -> "Would you like to delete Group n" Enh: "Would you like to delete Group n "<group name>" (3) Being able to "drag and drop" groups to rearrange them on the screen? (Not sure how viable this is, currently I use COPY then DELETE, but this is a bit slow. It would be ok to have to click a button at the top to enable "Rearrange" if a live drag-and-drop rearrange is considered too risky. (3a) Maybe this could be allowed for palettes too?
