  1. Display problems on the monitor

    Hi Both, Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we will look into it. Edward

    Hi Paul, Tap SETUP -> System Settings -> Record/Update options. You should find there’s an option for “When Held”. Ensure this has a red stripe next to it, rather than the option that always brings the Record Options into the touchscreen. Hope that helps Edward
  3. Remote APPS

    Hi Steve, Thats sounds like that’s the issue. FLX S consoles should not be connected to the internet. If there is a DHCP server, having DHCP enabled on the FLX S Remote settings with the correct subnet should be what you’re after. Edward
  4. Advice - S24

    Hi Paul, Were you suffering Lockups on ZerOS 7.9.3? FLX S first launched on ZerOS software, where we found a couple of issues with patching, that were quickly solved by ZerOS 7.9.3. ZerOS 7.9.4 was then released on Monday, which is a minor enhancement software release. The "Fader Controls..." option on Playbacks sounds exactly what you're after. Fader Controls will not effect intensity control, which will remain as HTP mixing across all Playbacks. You can read more about Fader Controls... here... http://support.zero88.com/1011405471 Hope that helps, Edward
  5. Houselights / Independent Faders

    Hi Martin, Yes, the other way is to program with SmartTag disabled, so that Playbacks are not recorded into cues. Ash is correct, FLX won't record Parked levels. Therefore during plotting, you could set your hazer so it is slowly pumping haze, and park your hazer channels. The hazer will then stay at this level, not getting recorded into any cues, until you select those fixtures and unpark them. You can read more about Parking here... http://support.zero88.com/1011403601 Hope that helps, Edward
  6. ZerOS 7.9.4 Released

    Hi Peachy, Glad you solved the issue and are now running ZerOS 7.9.4. Edward
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Showtec Shark Wash One

    Hi Kevin, Thanks very much for that, will ensure it is included in Fixture Library 36. Edward
  10. 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
  11. Fixture Needed (Chauvet Rogue R2 Wash)

    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
  12. 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
  13. 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. Edward
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. Triggering cues problem

    Hi Stefan, Looking at your show file, Playback 71 has got Trigger on Raise Disabled. This means that remotely triggering this Playback from a cue is also disabled, which is why it isn't triggering from cue 82 of the Master Playback. You can change this setting by holding SETUP + tap Playback 71's button -> Raise & Lower -> Trigger on Raise -> Enabled. Chases set to one shot will run through the cues of the chase once, and then stop on the last step. Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  23. additional dmx out

    Hi Simon, Yes it is, with the use of a DMX Ethernet Gateway, such as our 1 Universe Ethernet box... http://zero88.com/products/control/ethernetbox/index.shtml You would then output sACN or Art-Net Ethernet protocols from the FLX into a Gateway to give you additional universes. Hope that helps Edward
  24. No output from cues!

    Hi Jim, There is no way of removing programmer time from the last encoder wheel in the Z key. By default this is disabled, and if you do tap it’s middle button to enable it, it will be set to 5 seconds. Did you manually release/ turn off your Playback? This is done by pressing and holding CLEAR, and tapping the Playback’s button. You would then need to take the Playback’s fader down, and then back up to see any light output. If it happens again, feel free to send me your show file and I’ll take a look at what may be causing it. Edward
  25. Color bumb & Intensity

    Hi John, Glad you like FLX S24! When you program a colour chase, the fades you see for that Playback’s Cues in the Cues window are for if you were to revert that chase back to a normal cue list. Therefore to edit chase settings such as the cross fade hold SETUP, and tap your chase’s Playback button. You will be able to see it is set to cross fade, and that the Colour crossfade percentage is set to 100%. You can tap this, and type/ use the encoder wheel to set the fade to 0%. Tap OK, and OK on the settings, and you’ll see your chase will snap the colours. Programming parameters without intensity is an advanced programming method. Therefore to do this, press and hold RECORD, and you’ll see the Record Options pops up on screen. In here you’ll see there is a button called SmartTag. By default this is enabled, however if you tap this, it will have a blue stripe next to it, meaning it is now disabled, allowing you to record parameters with 0% intensity. This does now mean that playbacks you record will only store “programmer” data, and not data from other playbacks. Programmer data is reperesented by red values in the output window, and parameters with a blue background. Tap RECORD again to close the record window, and now you can turn your fixtures on and setup their movement effect (such as a circle), then tap the Z Key, and tap the middle encoder button of the intensity wheel to Untag intensity. Tap RECORD, then tap the playback you want to store to, and your lighting will be stored, minus intensity. Hope that helps and makes sense, any queries let me know. Edward
