    LeapFrog (48) ZerOS 6 and View/Desktop

    In a future update, we are looking at adding a 'screen' option into the Leap Frog 48 & 96, which would then allow you to move windows across the multiple desktops. This is detailed as issue ZOS-3197.

    Using Submaster to run a show

    Hi Russ, No, at the moment there is no way to make all the Playbacks into Submasters by default. This is something we have built into the ORB XF that is released later this month. We've set up Macros to do this before, and then saved the Macro onto a UDK. Be aware that Macros record the actual key presses - for example the Macro would record that you pressed the third syntax key, not the {page} syntax key.

    LeapFrog (48) ZerOS 6 and View/Desktop

    Hi Carl, At the moment the Leap Frog 48 & 96 are limited to the one desktop and view. You can record macros of different screen layouts (by recording you opening the windows), which is the best work around at the moment. This is something we are looking into expanding.

    Gaining control when switching submaster banks

    Hi Rookie, This is the normal behaviour of the Jester 12/24 - when you change pages any active submasters continue to stay on the pages they were at until they are no longer active (@ 0) and then switch to the new page you have selected.

    Version 6 - LeapFrog48

    I've logged this as issue ZOS-3191 and we'll look into why it's no longer working. This is an ORB and Frog 2 feature, that we are looking at adding to the Leap Frog 48 & 96 in the future. For now, however, you can only view Desktop 1. Unfortunately this is a bug that slipped through the net. It's already listed as issue ZOS-3190.

    iSolution iMove 200SR

    Ho Tommyb, I'm guessing you are selecting 'Update Fixture File'? You need to select 'Load User Fixtures' instead. Hope this helps?

    Ease of Programming Moving heads

    Hi Jim, It's really easy! A few hints and tips: After patching your fixtures, click 'Auto Menus' in Setup > Patch and click all three options in turn (Create Auto Groups, Palettes and Macros). This will help you get started. Now, come out of SETUP. If it's not already, press VIEW 0 ENTER. This will open View '0' which is a default view. You should see Colour, Beamshape, Possition and Group palette windows on one of your monitors - with all the automatically created palettes that the desk made when you clicked Auto Menus. Pressing SHIFT + EFFECT will open the effetcs window, with all the defualt effects in there. When you select your moving head, all the effects available to that fixture will be highlighted. You can then activate an effect by clicking it, or typing 'EFFECT X ENTER'. Pressing the 'EFFECT' button allows you to change the Size, Speed and Offset on the encoder wheels. Get the effect looking how you want, and then just program that into your cue like you would program anything else. To stop the effect, change the size to '0'. A '0' size effect is equivalent to not having an effect at all. To go even further and create your own effect from scratch, you can click 'Effects Window' in the top left of the Effects Palette. Select the moving heads and you will see all their parameters list down the left hand side. I hope this gets you started ok?

    update window 6.0.0

    I've added the 'updating UDK' bug as issue ZOS-3188 and the 'Updating cues in stacks >1' bug as issue ZOS-3189. Thank you for alerting us to these.

    Informations about version 6.0

    Yep - you can do this. You just need to change the chase drive to 'beat' instead of 'auto' and then the desk will learn the speed you tap the button at, instead of using the BPM speed.

    update window 6.0.0

    Ahhh I see - we'll look at this tomorrow when I'm back in the office. You can press UPDATE and then press the actual UDK and this is accepted in the command line. Many thanks for taking the time to post the screenshot.

    update window 6.0.0

    Sorry, I didn't realise I was still using a beta of Phantom. However, I have upgraded to 6.0.0 and this still works fine. Here is a screenshot of Monitor 1 while updating a UDK.

    update window 6.0.0

    I can't replicate this problem, sorry. If you have time, if you could take a photo and either email it to me or attach it in a reply to this thread, it would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks,

    Hi Piero, What is not working in the Update Window? In all our tests this has been working fine. Many Thanks

    Verify DMX connections

    Do you mean the DMX run in your venue? Easiest way is to plug something in, patch it to the desk and see if it works! Alternatively, as long as this doesn't go through any splitters or mergers etc in the system, you could connect two pins together on one end of the connection (using a bit of wire / paper clip etc) and then use a continuity checker to see if there is continuity between those same two pins on the other end of the run.
