FLX hints & tips Advent Calendar

Recommended Posts

On Friday we're launching our FLX hints & tips Advent Calendar - 25 videos & Knowledge Base articles showing how to get the most out of your FLX console. These will be distributed on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. We'll post them below too, but this will be manually rather than automatically, so there maybe some delay (especially over weekends and towards the Christmas Holiday).

These are great, Jon. I’m thoroughly enjoying them and learning. Tyler is doing a great job and you’re just a natural. Edward comes across on the FLX S videos like he’s been doing it for years! Great work guys!

ps sometimes sound goes a little muffled when the presenter turns towards the desk - maybe a lower lav mic placement  on the shirt and a little more compression and make up gain?

Thanks Kevin.

You can tell we're not sound guys, can't you! They were all filmed together, and have been uploaded and scheduled up until Christmas (along with an outtakes video for Boxing Day!), so we can't change the sound, but we've definitely learnt ready for next time (although never again are we filming, editing and uploading 26 videos in one month!!!).

Well if you did them fully in-house then all credit to you all - very professional! As usual I'm just being a bit picky! It's a great idea - and having an edit of outtakes for Boxing Day is genius! :lol:

Actually, I loved Tyler's (scripted) line from 0:52 on Day 3: when describing the new Add Fixtures: "if you want your fixtures to start every 10, I can actually say Patch Offset of '20'' " :D

Haha yes we did notice that at the time of recording and were thinking about doing it again, but we figured people would understand what he meant! :P:lol:

Woohoo - Day 8 Edward, you get your first starring moment on the Calendar! ....and the boy plays a blinder! Great video!

I'll have to start an in-office sweepstake on who gets Day 9 etc...

Has Jon not given you a zero88 t-shirt yet? <_<

Day 10 - full marks to Edward for being able to say "with a ZerOS Show file you can load a whole show" without getting his tongue wrapped around the desk and just about getting away without saying "Zerosh"!!! :lol:

I bet you all had a bash at that script and Edward was the only one who could say it and get through the whole "ZerOSh Showfile with ASHKII" without laughing his socks off!

I think the ASCII video was perhaps the one that took the longest - a lot of content to squeeze into quite a small amount of time, and some confusing concepts (like Manufacture Specific Information layered on top of an ASCII showfile).

The outtakes video is fun :-)

I want to know if Tyler has eye makeup on in Day 9 or if you had a team night out the day before :o

Day 12 - Edward plays a blinder! Just a smidge of hesitation though as he pushes up the fader after the blind edit of the 6-bank stage right down lights. Has it worked... yes it has, hurrah! Edward breathes again...! :lol:

Good detective skills... he had just flown back from Dubai overnight, and then driven from Heathrow! We forced him into the office with the promise of Chinese for lunch :lol:

Poor guy! Tell him from me he did a great job (on the videos - I've no idea how well it went in Dubai, I'll let you be the judge of that!)
