Pan Invert

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Started rigging for a show today and decided to do the Pan invert on the desk instead of the fixtures. But, whenever I used a pan inverted fixture on the old desk ( Illusion 500) the fixture did the oppasite to its counter parts, as expected.

 

But, on the FLX, once pan invert is selected the fixture essentially mirrors its counterparts by 180 degrees. example, I set fixtures 1 and 3 to wash stage right and the others are facing the wrong way by 180 degrees. weather or not I'm just being thick, I don't know! :P but if there's a way to make them essentially 'mirror' (1+3 move right, 2+4 move left etc) each other?

 

Any input appreciated!

 

Cheers,

Sam

I'm not sure if I understand your question. But sometimes you have to invert pan and tilt to get what you expected. Maybe you could give it a try.

Am i right to say. It sounds like when you invert pan tilt on the console it inverts all of that type of fixture, globally to that fixture type rather than the individual physical fixture.

I would hope not, that wouldn't be useful! It would need to be on a per-fixture instance basis. Maybe the OP could clarify exactly what is happening and what the settings are. This function has been available on many Zero88 consoles so I'd expect Jon or Keith to spot an issue like this pretty early on.

Only if you select all of one fixture (by pressing "GROUP" in the Edit Fixtures window) and then changing the "ALL" row.
