Solo Function For Moving Lights

Recommended Posts

Hello friends!

 

We need a solo function for a moving light. For example we are programming a cue and the stage is bright, now we want to focus a moving light to a special point. Can we darken the stage, focus the moving and go back to our cue?

 

Many thanks!!

You need to record content on a submaster in order to use the solo function. The content could be everything, a channel or ML or LED...

Ok, many thanks! Now our next problem is, we are in a cue during a general rehearsal. We want to record a submaster with one channel (a moving light for example). But the Submaster records always all channels from the cue (tagged), although we have used the "selected" button in the record window.

Hi,

 

I've asked our software team to look into this for you, as I'm seeing the same thing in Non-Tracking mode (works fine in tracking mode). I've recorded it as issue ZOS-5469

 

Best regards,

Hi Mr. Huber. :ph34r:

 

you may use the REM DIM Function.

 

Syntax as follows.

Fixture No. x i.e. 101 (SHIFT) and (FULL) The selected fixture is set to 100% and tagged if selected fixt. intensity is 0%, All not selected fixtures are set to 0%

 

Please also have a look at page 136 ff ORB Manual Issue 2

 

For further information just give me a call! :)

 

 

Cheers

Sven

The other option is 'Highlight' which is SHIFT + HOME, using similar syntax as above - 101 (SHIFT) (HOME).

 

This removes all colour and beamshape info, so the moving light is a white beam. You can then position the moving light where you want, and then turn off Highlight (SHIFT + HOME) again to restore the Colour + Beamshape information.

 

If you want to do this on multiple fixtures, you can use the 'Next' and 'Previous' keys on the Syntax Keys (the 5 blank keys with the LCD above them).

 

If you use 'Highlight' or 'Rem Dim' often, you can set the blank key to perminantly be this option, instead of having to use SHIFT and HOME / FULL. To do this, hold 'SETUP' and press the blank key, and then select 'Highlight' or 'Rem Dim' from the list.
