Move on dark help

Recommended Posts

Hi there guys,

 

I'm still learning the FLX and wanting a fixture to move on dark but only on certain cues, some cues we need it to show the beams moving but one or two we need it to move in dark and just appear what's the best way to do this?

Any help would be appricated

Thanks

Hi Luke,

 

There are various options, the easiest way would be to go into the cue settings (last column in the Cue Window, and then press Enter). In that window are options to "Don't Move Colour", "Don't move Position" etc etc, so do this in the cues beforehand.

 

Alternatively, if you program in Tracking Mode and with "Smart Tag" turned off in the Record Window (press and hold RECORD to open the Record Window), when you tag parameters, they will be stored in the cue as "hard values" so they won't move in dark.

Ok thanks Jon, I will try that in a few days when I get fixtures back, basically the movers are only being used for extra effect on a few songs so won't be used much but like i said before some need to fade straight up already in position and colour and other times they just be moving around. If I still get stuck can I come back to you,

Hi Jon,

 

Sorry to bother you again, I'm having trouble with the move on dark still, I tried it a couple weeks ago with how you said and it worked fine, now I'm trying to programme for a show and for some reason when I hit the go button my movers are going through all the different gobo wheels till it's a plain spot as it's fading out and not fading straight away, any ideas?

Hi Jon,

 

Sorry I've figured out what it was, it doesn't like the fact that I've copied a cue, is there a way I can copy a cue and it will just fade the movers out?

Hi Luke,

 

If you can drop me a showfile over on email (email address in signature below) I'll take a look. Let me know cue numbers, fixture numbers etc.
