  1. Custom effects

    Evening all, Is it possible to create custom effects at all? I have some fixtures that output only a few select pastel colours when I choose the "rainbow" effect and I'm after some more vibrant colours and a larger selection of them. Is this something I can create myself, and not in a chase? Thanks Rob
  2. **Urgent help required**

    Thanks Kevin, We have managed to source a desk locally from another venue who has recently purchased an FLX and doesn't require it for the next week. I tried everything I could think of, including factory reset, etc but I couldn't get it to play ball. I've never seen anything like it before - it was going completely mad. I removed all the DMX and peripherals, moved it to another room and started a new show with four or fives cues, but trying to get them programmed in was a nightmare, it was adding in extra syntax by itself causing the error beep - the faders and page display went completely blank. I'm at a total loss. Peter is going to contact the supplier this morning in the hope it can be fixed pretty quickly.
  3. **Urgent help required**

    Hi All, 2 minutes before our penultimate dress rehearsal started, our FLX went into absolute meltdown. Syntax, keyboard commands all being entered randomly by itself, skipping cues all randomly. It's just gone mad. It's running through cues by itself rapidly, not responding to anything. It's behaving like it's had a drink spilled on it (but it certainly hasn't). Does anyone know what the warranty period is on these? I've phoned Zero88 Support but as it's a hardware issue they can't really help. I haven't managed to finish programming due to a blown lamp in a Mac 700, so time is really of the essence. Obviously the company we bought it from are now closed for the day also Thanks Rob
  4. Chases

    Hi Kevin, The colour fade times are set to 3 seconds, and if I split the cue into a normal stack they behave as expected, it's only when I turn it into a chase that the problem arises. I am running 7.9.3. Thanks Rob
  5. Chases

    Evening all, I'm having a few problems with chases...i am using some Robe LEDBeam 150s and have found that the colour sequence I want isn't pre-built in so I'm creating a chase and then adding into the cue stack as a macro. I have different colours on each fixture, and then three further cues, each cue changes the colour of each fixture. I have added fade times, but no matter what I set them to the colour snaps and doesn't fade. I must be doing something wrong! One of my cues won't even let me put any fade up or down times in at all! As always, any advice would be appreciated! Rob
  6. Move in Dark problems when jumping cues

    Hi Jon, Do you know if these are going to be included in a release in the near future? Thanks Rob
  7. Tracking for idiots

    Thanks Kevin! I'm sure it's easy when you know what you're doing. I'll give the "cue only" option a go for my edits thanks! I've never had a problem with tracking before expect for the edits. If I do press shift+record and then choose "record all" will that take effect for that cue only I assume? Thanks again!
  8. Move in Dark problems when jumping cues

    Hi Jon, I don't suppose you have a rough date for these making it into a release do you? Many thanks Rob
  9. Tracking for idiots

    Hi All, I'm slowly getting to grips with the FLX and think it's a great desk. Unfortunately I'm a bit dim and I'm getting confused by tracking (stop laughing!). The last desk I used didn't have tracking (if a light was selected when "program" was pressed it was stored, if it wasn't selected it wasn't stored), so whilst I understand the principal, I'm not really used to it. When I'm programming, I'll go back into a scene I have saved (for example let's say in cue 4) and add a light and update the cue. Now in cue 5, which is a blackout, this one light that I added in cue 4 is still lit and I have to edit cue 5 to remove it. The same thing happens in reverse, so if I go to cue 6 and take a light out, in cue 7 it's also missing and I have to add it back in again. I'm sure there's a simple button I need to press to avoid this, but as I'm not very intelligent I haven't dared to play with the tracking settings for fear of breaking it beyond my limited intellect. Any advise would be appreciated!
  10. DMX Values

    Come in this morning and the desk is showing DMX values (eg. 255) rather than intensity value % of 100. I've not changed any settings, does anyone know how to change it back?
  11. Understanding tracking?

    Hi Jon Have you had chance to look at the show file I emailed across yet? Thanks Rob
  12. Understanding tracking?

    Emailed to you Jon. Thanks.

    Thank you for your response Jon, I'll try what you have suggested today. I was sure that "smart Tag" was already enabled though! Many Thanks Rob
  14. Understanding tracking?

    Hello!! I'm about to lose the will to live and will most likely be crying myself to sleep tonight. Working on a show, I've had a lot of problems this evening programming. Show file is attached but on certain cues (4 thru 7) the move on dark isn't working unless I record the cue as "cue only" with no tracking. Also, I am using 2 x Mac 700 Profile which, in the most part, seem to be moving on dark as desired, however I am also using 2 x Robe 600 LED Wash which simply do not move on dark at all. Ever. Very frustrating and very confusing as I'm sure it's just me doing something wrong, but I don't recall having similar problems last year! Is it something to do with tracking or is it another issue? Tracking is set to basic if that is any use. Any assistance would be really appreciated. The show starts in less than a week and I am getting nowhere! Thanks Rob Sinbad the Sailor 12-02-22.isf
  15. Chase Speed / new effect?

    Hello All I'm slightly confused. I have some lovely LED strip bars which are split into 8 segments each. I have created a chase where the each segment follows the other. I have set the speed to the maximum 600 beats per minute but it's still far too slow for the effect I am after. Is there a way to increase the speed of the chase to a custom level? Also, with the same LED strip bars, when I go into effects I can't see a random strobe option. Is there an easy way to create this? Thanks everyone! Rob
