  1. Houselights / Independent Faders

    Hi Martin, The easiest way to do this is to Program with SmartTag disabled. SmartTag is an option you may have seen in the Record Options pop-up, that opens when you tap RECORD. If SmartTag is disabled, when you tap record only tagged parameters will be recorded. Tagged intensity parameters are displayed as red values in the output window, and tagged parameters are displayed with blue backgrounds behind their encoder displays. This therefore means channels from Playbacks will not get Recorded, as they are blue values rather than red. You can turn SmartTag off in the Record options pop up, by tapping Smart Tag so that it has a blue stripe next to it. The link Kevin sent a link to, is Jon explaining another useful programming tool for this, which is an Inhibit Playback. What you can do, is record your cues normally with SmartTag enabled, recording your whole lighting state for each cue including the haze. However, in the Playback settings of your Hazer Playbacks, change the fader function to Inhibit. This Playback now acts as a Grand Master for the Hazer. Therefore when the fader is at full, the haze level from the Recorded cues will be output, but if you need the level taking down you can use your Haze Playback to inhibit the level of haze. Hope that helps and makes sense, any queries let me know. Edward
  2. Remote APPS

    Hi Steve, What router are you using? Is it set to assign DHCP, and if so is the FLX S set to use DHCP? Edward
  3. Showtec Shark Wash One

    Hi Kevin, Thanks very much for that, will ensure it is included in Fixture Library 36. Edward
  4. Advice - S24

    Thanks very much for the excellent review! And don’t forget the FLX S48 doubles the Fixture count, number of Playbacks, Groups and Palettes to 96 of each. Edward

    Hi Shane, This fixture is included in the latest fixture library, available to download here... http://zero88.com/forum/files/file/8-fixture-library-full/ However if you don't wish to update their fixture library, please find the individual requested fixture for you to load in... Chauvet Rogue R2 Wash.ift Any queries let me know. Edward
  6. Submaster controlling the dimmer channel??

    Hi Carpo, The quickest way to record your Fixture groups to a Playback fader, is to double tap the group you want so the fixtures come to full, tap RECORD, and tap the flashing Playback button you want their intensity stored to. If you need more programming tips, feel free to email me directly and we can talk through what you’re after. Edward
  7. Submaster controlling the dimmer channel??

    Hi Carpo, Could you expand on this a little? Have you got one Playback with an intensity effect and one with a intensity chase? If so intensity on Playbacks will always mix together HTP (Highest intensity value takes precedence). Intensity from Channel faders is a little different, as it has highest priority, which is why the CLEAR button lights to allow you to clear these Red values, and allow your Playbacks to take control.

  8. Effect Chaser with Sunstrip 10ch

    Hi Fred, No update on this one yet I’m afraid. We’ve been working on ZerOS 7.9.4, which is an enhancement/ bug fix software update due to be released within the next week. Your best bet is to plan your rig allowing for each segment of the sun strip to be an individual fixture. Any queries let me know Edward
  9. ML Position move time

    Hi James, There is no Real-Time Clock on FLX S consoles. The Time displayed when the console is locked is the run time, which is fixed in the latest software. Any queries let me know Edward
  10. ML Position move time

    Hi James, Looking at your show file, you have "Fader Controls... Colour, Beamshape and Position" enabled on the Master Playback. This means rather than these attributes using the cue fade times, they will be instead scaled by the fader's position. To disable "Fader Controls", hold SETUP tap the Master Playback's GO button. Then, tap and disable "Colour", Beamshape" and "Position", so that they have a blue stripe next to them, rather than red. As a separate note, I noticed from your show file you are running out of date software. Keep an eye on our website over the next week, as we will be releasing software version ZerOS 7.9.4, that I would recommend you installing on your FLX S, as it will bring new features and enhancements. Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  11. Hi Daniel, Yes Derek is correct, copy the unzipped .exe to the root of a USB stick, plug into the FLX S, and tap SETUP -> Load File, and load in the file. The software update will begin. The process you describe is the old way of performing software updates. Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  12. Touch screen monitor

    Hi Jim, If your FLX S is displaying Press ENTER to complete calibration or Press ENTER to cancel calibration, then you are running out of date software. The latest release software is ZerOS 7.9.3, available to download and install here... Once you’ve got this installed, you should find this solves your issue. Edward
  13. ML Position move time

    Hi James, If your Fixture has a Postion speed parameter, usually this when set to 0% should mean full speed. Therefore your second cue should display a fade time, that you can use to define the duration from your first position to the second. Feel free to attach your show file and I’ll take a look. Edward
  14. additional dmx out

    Hi Simon, Ideally it needs to be on its own dedicated network. As a side note, FLX shouldn't be connected to the Internet. Edward
  15. additional dmx out

    Hi Simon, Yes this can be connected to a laptop, to allow your PC to become a standalone lighting controller. To do so you would need to be running PhantomZerOS on the laptop, with a Phantom Unlock dongle... http://zero88.com/products/consoles/index.shtml#scd http://zero88.com/forum/files/file/1-zeros-793/ Hope that helps, any queries let me know Edward
