Fat Frog Training Software

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

To aid me in the training of peeps on the Fat Frog I have made a 'interactive' powerpoint training program!

 

I have spent quite a while making it and at present only instructs on Generic Lighting however I will be adding the intellegent lighting part very soon.

 

It in total comprises of 26 interactive slides which allow you to navigate around the easy to understand slide show.

 

For those of you who do not have Power Point you can have the slides as a word document but obviously you wouldn't be able to navigate around.

 

If you spot any mistakes (formatting, hyperlinks or just mistakes in instructions) please contact me so I can rectify them.

 

Any feedback please do not hesitate to contact me

 

Thanks

 

Sam Henderson

 

PS

 

Z88, I have worked very hard on this and would love a flease!!! :wink: :wink: :D:D:D

Hi all,

 

The rest of the Fat Frog Training Program is complete!

 

It now has extensive instruction on how to control moving lights using Zero 88™s Fat Frog board and some amendments to the Generics part.

 

The Site that links to it is here (or copy and paste this address into your browsers address; http://www.saodesign.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk )

 

There will be some glitches to start off with however if you notify me I will endeavour to correct them as soon as possible. Please mail any feedback to; frogtraining {at} blueyonder{dot}co{dot} uk or sam.orme {at} blueyonder{dot}co{dot}uk

 

At the moment you can only view it on the web (or you could make the page available offline using standard I.E. tools) so if you would like it on disk contact me and I will send it to you subject to a small charge to cover my expenses. Can I also advise you that when you do view it on the web you choose the view as slide show option (bottom left of the browser) as it enhances viewing quality greatly.

 

I hope you enjoy the Program and it prevails to be a helpful resource to you.

 

 

Regards,

 

Sam Henderson

Just thought Sam :idea: , just about all of your excellent work could be applied to both the Leapfrog and Bullfrog desks also, so perhaps you could allow your program to help demonstrate all of these desks, whilst just using the Fatfrog as the example...

p.s if you were to describe and explain the mambo's sx buttons then that desk would be fully covered also??

I just got as far as the moving lights section when you talk of LTP as meaning lowest takes precedence. That's not my understanding of it at all - Doesn't it mean "latest takes precedence" so the last action is maintained? Using the lowest value for any attribute would be pointless...

On the Frog series of desks - all fixture colour, beamshape and position parameters are processed using LTP (Latest Takes Precedence).

 

The fixture parameter outputs will snap or fade to their programmed values when told to as a result of outputting a memory (playback X), raising a submaster, pressing an SX button (mambo frog), outputting a palette or selecting a fixture and moving a control wheel.

 

They will remain at that value until told to do something else by any of the methods mentioned above.

Links fine for me, works ok on Mozilla, just some features lost, such as icons and hyperlink.

Would be great as a downloadable unit. Getting stuff posted out to Zim is a bit of an issue.

 

Thanks for a very useful tool, it will help me with my Bull Frog
