  4. WYSIWYG and Phantom ZerOS

    They're different, but both aiming to achieve the same end result. You can download a demo version of Capture (which works for 90 minutes and then needs to be restarted, and doesn't allow you to save) to see if you like it - http://www.capturesweden.com/ CITP stands for "Controller Interface Transport Protocol" - it's an Ethernet based "protocol" that allows consoles to talk to visualisers etc. It was originally developed by the team at Capture, but it open for anyone to use. There is more info here: http://www.citp-protocol.org/ Yes, that should be easy. Phantom ZerOS uses networks setup through Windows, so to change IP addresses etc, you do this through Windows, and then just select the IP address in Phantom. If using the same laptop, you can choose the IP address.
  5. FLX hints & tips Advent Calendar

    Thanks Kevin. You can tell we're not sound guys, can't you! They were all filmed together, and have been uploaded and scheduled up until Christmas (along with an outtakes video for Boxing Day!), so we can't change the sound, but we've definitely learnt ready for next time (although never again are we filming, editing and uploading 26 videos in one month!!!).
  6. As part of the ongoing upgrades to our website, the forum may temporarily show as unavailable or offline during Friday, and potentially into the weekend. We hope to keep disruptions to a minimum.
  7. WYSIWYG and Phantom ZerOS

    Hi Tom, Simplest option is to just output Art-Net or streaming ACN from the ORB XF straight into WYSIWYG. This can't be done from Phantom ZerOS unless you purchase the "Phantom ZerOS Unlock Dongle". If you don't need to use WYSIWYG, and can use Capture instead, we have demo showfiles (for both your laptop and the ORB XF), along with PDF instructions, available to download here: http://eatonfilesharing.box.com/Zero88. You can use Phantom ZerOS free of charge using CITP. Let us know the setup and we can give you more specific information. Jon
  8. How do you (usually) use your Solution?

    There are multiple physical processors in all our consoles. For Solution, if we can reduce the load on the Co-Processor which powers the LCDs (by moving functionality away from MFKs, and onto the main processor which has plenty of head room) then this would hopefully help. We ship triple figure Solution consoles every year, and have only received a very small handful of complaints about performance from high-end users who really push the console's functionality... every release we're simplifying and optimising the software to improve the performance.
  9. How do you (usually) use your Solution?

    Thanks for the replies so far. The MFKs are not a particularly intuitive way of navigating menus (especially SETUP etc). Therefor, if we concentrated our development on using a mouse & monitor, and removed the limitation of using MFKs this could (a) make the user interface more intuitive, and (b) potentially help speed up the refresh of the LCDs as we wouldn't be using them (and hence changing them) so regularly. Would you be happy if you HAD to use a mouse and monitor (or touchscreen) for areas like SETUP, Playback Settings etc?
  10. Remote Controlling Solution

    Hi Veit, What device are you using to output MIDI from the computer? Jon
  11. How do you (usually) use your Solution?

    Fair point - I've updated the question to "How do you (usually) use your Solution?" - realistically we'll only get a handful of responses, and so more descriptive answers in the comments is more helpful than the closed answers from the poll
  12. There's a "red step on" and "red step off" effect - those sound like what you want to do :-)
  13. Hi Oliver, Currently, FLX S supports subfixtures (or "compound fixtures") via direct control on the encoder wheels only (so, for example, you could manually create a step-based chase onto a Playback). However - we're currently implementing true support for compound fixtures into ZerOS, which we're expecting to release in Q1 or Q2 of 2018. On FLX S, this will give you some further control on linear fixtures such as Sunstrips and LED battens. Jon
  14. RigSync

    Definitely sounds like a DMX compliance issue on the fixtures. FLX S has two outputs - a 3pin and a 5pin. If you have a 1 Universe FLX S, by default both ports will output the same DMX data, but the 5pin will include RDM and the 3pin won't include RDM. This behavior can be changed in SETUP > Inputs & Outputs. Another useful trick is addressing the fixture into the higher numbers. Usually above address 32 helps, but if not above address 257 should definitely help.

    My what?! Everything's saved on the cloud* now Ian! *(by "saved", I mean "searched". And by "cloud", I mean "Google").
  16. USB Keyboard

    Most (possibly all?) Apple keyboards have a built in USB hub, which might be causing it not work.

    Thanks, marketing will get this updated :-) Kevin's correct :-)
