FLX and FLX-S => FX-Edit

Recommended Posts

I never had a FLX nor a FLX-S in my hands; just played with Pantom-OS

there is one crucial question :

it seems to me that FLX and FLX-S don't have the Effect-Edit-Window as it is present on Solution and Orbs
this window allows actually a very sophisticated creation and edition of personalized "enhanced" effects; getting and setting oscillators for every single attribute independently !
while there is no functionality for "matrix-control" nor "sub-fixtures" in Zero-OS; this "effect-edit-window" on Orb and Solution allows us to create some matrix and/or subfixture effects (as one can find natively on Grand-MA or Congo...) - for example creating "internal" chases or flickers on Sunstrips or individual Rainbows on Led-Bars affecting each lamp individually etc...)
I did not find such an editor on FLX nor on FLX-S, so I guess it does not exist... right ? (maybe I am wrong ?)

and this raises two questions :
what happens when I import an existing show (created on Orb or Solution) with sophisticated effect-editions into FLX-S ???
and what happens when I import an existing FLX-S show into the Phantom-OS (or hardware) of Solution, than edit my effects (for example on Sunstrips) and than re-import that edited Show into FLX-S again ?? will the "sophisticated effects"  run correctly ??
can we import "enhanced" effect-palletts created on Solution into FLX-S; and will they work, even if there is actually no possibility to crete those pallets on an FLX-S desk ??

one more question : on FLX-S there is an Output-Window (which shows only the fixture intensity output - not the DMX or attributs-output), but I did not found the DMX-Output-Window (which would allow to verify DMX-Outputs) - does such a Window exist ? or not ?

note : I perfectly understand that the FLX-S are low-budget-consoles and they seem already quite rich for ther price ! no worry about that and I would not expect more...
I am just wondering what happens with shows created on more sophisticated consoles and then imported into FLX-S ... -> and as there is no DMX-Output-window (say, I couldn't find it), there seems no way to "verify" without having the actual hardware desk.....:)

It's available on FLX, but not FLX S. On FLX, we've combined the two windows into two tabs of the same window - open the Effects window (press Effect) and then open the "Waveform" tab long the top.

This still works absolutely fine, in "both directions".

If you save them as an Effect Palette, and that palette is within range (48 palettes on FLX S24, 96 palettes on FLX S48) then yes - you can access them. All the functionality is available, just not the window (tab) itself.

On FLX and FLX S, DMX Output Window can be found in the Z button > System Information > DMX Outputs

okey, thanks for all these useful infos... :)

I just couldn't find the "Z-button" on FLX-S in Pantom-OS (did not realize that Shift=Z....)
things are clearer now ! and I found the DMX-Output-Window and can verify all these things by myself !! :) thanks for your help !
