  1. Phantom Frog 2?

    Any ideas in this direction? Even if a cut down version was knocked up it would be nice to see how the desk works.
  2. Channel Lights

    I much prefer a brief glance at the "outputs" screen than looking out for LED's.
  3. I want the impossible, please.

    Thanks again everybody, all ideas were exhausted and the problem was solved by fiddling around with the scene before and using some more generics for the spots to free up the Macs a bit more. sp, yes we are very lucky, I'll send you one just a pity about all the stupid health and safety rubbish that is slowly eroding our freedom in the Theatre.
  4. I want the impossible, please.

    Thanks very much for the quick replies. I agree that the Director needs erm,,,well,,,yes, but he is one of my teachers! I will have a play tomorrow with the "snap" idea. I should have said that I have set the Macs to SCEU or whatever setting it is that makes them take the shortest route to the next colour.
  5. Evening all, I am programming a school play with a Fat Frog using a load of generics, 2 Mac 500's and 2 600's. The director is utterly averse to blackouts. I have one scene where both 500s are being used as narrow green spots on either side of the stage (two people on the phone to each other). After they have finished talking the director wants the Macs to swing up onto the Gauze with a spinning triple white triangle gobo thing. Is it at all possible to get the Macs to move across there without cycling through numerous colours and gobos? I have tried setting the Mov Speed to 255 so they blackout while they move but unfortunatly they cycle through the Gobos before they start to move and hence look rubbish (and the Dir. doesn't like the 1/2 second blackout!!!) Any ideas? Have I explained that properly? BTW Anybody out there in Southern England who wouldn't mind me following them around for a day to see what proper lighting work is like as I may be interested in getting some Qualifications during my Gap year.
