  2. Hi Roger, That's great, glad to hear it. Effects can be applied to selected fixtures. To store all parameters into a palette, hold SHIFT and tap RECORD, before choosing an empty effect palette. Hope this helps, Edward
  3. Hello, Glad to hear this solved the problem. All the best, Edward
  4. Hello Jon Thanks for your help. I remarked, that the problem is only, when the color LIME is programmed. If is disable "Release on Lower", the problem is solved.
  5. Today
  6. Hi Edward, I tried again from the beginning "programmation effects + edit " and now it works. 👍 Are feffects enabled only with fixtures and not with presets ? Thanks again Roger
  7. Hi Sven, OK, let me know how you get on. All the best, Edward
  8. Hi Edward, thank you for your hint. I will test this over the weekend and will give feedback if it worked. Best regards Sven
  9. Hi Kevin, Edward, thanks for all the advice. I was at a bit of a loss initially, so it’s all very much appreciated. I’ll report back on any success with setting some global CCT’s for the other lamp-heads / fixtures.
  10. Hi Roger, Please could you send us the latest copy of your show file, and detail which fixtures aren't working with which effects? Please send this to support@zero88.com. If you have any questions let us know. Edward
  11. Hi Sven, After installing ZerOS 7.9.5, if you press "Automatically Create Effects palettes", how many are generated? 45 auto palettes should be generated. You can then select your fixtures, and ones available for those fixtures will be highlighted. If only one "No Effect" palette is created, you will need to reinstall ZerOS. This can be done following the instructions below... http://support.zero88.com/1518910761 Hope this helps, if you have any questions let us know. Edward
  12. Hello, When RigSync is disabled under "Remote Device Management", it is disabled globally. However when this is set to enable, to RigSync options per Desk Output, allow you to configure whether the 3 pin or 5 pin XLR output has RDM enabled from the console. That's great, really glad to hear it. When pressing the middle button of a parameter's encoder, this opens the parameters details. An indication to whether a parameter has details, is if the parameter has a function name below the parameter name, rather than simply a DMX level value. As Kevin says, if you need a fixture file feel free to send us an email to FixtureSupport@zero88.com, and we'll be able to create this for you. Hope this helps, if you have any questions let us know. Edward
  13. The quickest way is to write it yourself using the Fixture Tools: http://support.zero88.com/Fixture-Library/975405071/Fixture-Tools.htm The second way is to email Zero88 with a link to the pdf for the manual - and if the fixture has many DMX modes, if there is a particular one you need urgently: To requests new fixtures, please email us, ensuring you supply full details of the fixture (Make, Model, Mode) and a download link to the Operating Manual. FixtureSupport@Zero88.com Contacting the fixture manufacturer is likely to result in a deafening silence... Kevin
  14. Hi all I'm having a huge issue with the FX palette on our ORB XF running ZerOS 7.9.5: After updating the console to 7.9.5 many FX of our show are not working anymore. Many of them are even "grey" instead of "blue" now, so that I can't even select them (for instance a circle for a moving head or color FX for our RGB(W) fixtures). I then thought: "OK, lets get rid of the old stuff and build it up new from scratch". But with that it got even worth: I deleted all FX on the palette and pressed the "automatic create..." button. But then only very view FX were created, they got spread all over the palette and even them do not work! Does anybody have a similar experience? What could i do wrong? Is there a solution or a workaround? BTW: Even on the Phantom the automatic creation is not working Thanks in advance Best regards Sven

  16. Hi Edward, thanks for the welcome and for all the information. After your advice I've already tried turning off 'RigSync' , and everything's now stable after cycling the power (there's another menu under there too, under desk Universe, and i've also disabled Output 1 and Output 2 (I assume that's for when you're using both the 5 pin and 3 pin o/p on the back of the desk for 2 universes?) ). .... yes think so... it's the tab the appears on the screen directly above the encoder wheel. Since I've disabled RigSync the flat panels (Velvet1's and Velvet2's) have also begun to behave themselves, and even more impressively, if I press the centre encoder button I get a 15 panel on-screen matrix of selectable CCT values (i'm really impressed... I've uploaded an image) I know they use a shed load of these at ITV in Leeds so didn't think a chap had to keep running up and down a ladder to change the CCT. If I can do the same (or something similar) for the fresnels, I think I'm home and dry! That's a job for tomorrow... thanks so much for your help. PS. One last question... if a lamp-head / fixture, doesn't appear in your library what's the best way of getting one, contacting Eaton's or the lamp-head manufacturer?
  17. yes, they are not enble. only they are "On" ( red ) with fixtures are selected. I try that, I move up just Speed , UPDATE and now my Effect plalette ( created one by one with Sine wave) doesn't work Thanks Roger
  18. Hi Roger, Of the 45 auto effects, effects 2 through to 10 are intensity effects. Do you find these are greyed out, and therefore cannot be applied? Auto Effects cannot be edited, as they are used to create custom effect palettes. To edit custom effect palettes, apply the effect to your fixtures, make changes using the encoder wheels, tap UPDATE, and then press the effect palette to store the edits. Hope this helps, Edward
  19. Yes, I understand and it's work well like you told me at the mail. 👍 I try this option also, but effects are not enables for individual dimmers. not possible to edit effects thanks Roger
  20. Hello, Firstly, welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. Yes you can store colour presets, referred to by ZerOS as Colour Palettes. To do this, select either all fixtures of this type, or just one of them, and use the colour parameter encoder wheels to create the colour temperature you would like to store. Then tap RECORD, and in the Colour window tap an empty colour palette, marked with an asterisk. You will then be able to use this palette to quickly recall the colour temperature. Hold SETUP and tap the palette to give it a name. Could you elaborate a little? Are you referring to the number displayed above each encoder wheel? This is the raw DMX value the console is sending to that parameter. FLX S consoles are able to automatically discover and patch RDM enabled fixtures on the DMX line. This is due to a feature called RigSync. For more information, see the article below... http://support.zero88.com/995963301 If you don't want the console to discover and keep RDM enabled fixtures synchronised with the console, you can disable RigSync, by tapping SETUP -> Universes -> RDM -> RigSync -> Disabled. Hope this helps, if you have any questions let us know. Edward
  21. Hi Roger, Auto effects cannot be used across individual lamps of a single fixture, hence you need to build the effect using Waveforms. If the strip blinder was patched as 10 individual dimmers, you would be able to use auto effects. Yes, fixture Home values can be edited. For information on editing fixture Home values, take a look at the article below... http://support.zero88.com/1011411491 Hope this helps, Edward
  22. Hello, I wonder if you might be able to advise. I'm refitting a small television / video studio with LED lamp-heads, (the LEDs are additional (at present) to tungsten lamp-heads already fitted and hardwired to a remote panel). After an initial wobble, down to not having the correct settings for the fresnel lamp-heads in the fixture library, I put it to one side for a while then after some digging and a new zerOS and the latest library, I can now 'talk' to 50% of the lights! Currently we have: 4 x Fresnel lamp-heads operating in their mode 11 White &RGBW C/F (apologies I don't know if this is a standard DMX mode thing or not?) and 4 x LED flat panels (each 2 channel: intensity and colour temp' and at present these don't want to play nicely!). First question: I'm after a bit of advice on how to set-up the desk for studio use. Is it possible to set some presets for the RGB capable lamp-heads, maybe 2800K, 3200K, 5600K, 6500K & 10000K. The idea being to set all the fresnels at once to one of the presets? I have the formula supplied by the lamp manufacturer and it appears to work on paper if you assume that DMX values 0 & 65535 are 0% and 100% respectively: DMX% = CCT(required) - CCTmin x 100 CCTmax - CCTmin 0% = (2800 - 2800 / 10,000 - 2800) x 100 100% = (10,000 - 2800 / 10,000 - 2800) x 100 I should be able to workout a selection of common values. I did notice that the non RGB panels actually show a CCT value and not DMX value on the desk on the temp tab (the wrong value mind, but there we are!) I didn't really want to hobble the RGB capable lights by setting a them to a 'tungsten' mode that might offer a different read-out... any thoughts?) Second question: I turned the flx off yesterday and back on to today, to find it had added new channels and generally had had a good shuffle; any idea what that might be all about? Is there something that needs to be disabled? Does the desk auto detect the attached lights in some way? I'd saved the complete show previously, and tried to reload that... it showed the correct set-up briefly on screen and then reverted to the today's 'switch on' state. I then went through and deleted the extra channels it'd allocated, by tapping on the address for each of the extras in the 'all patched fixtures' screen of the set-up menu. The lamp-heads then seemed to operate as they did before... right light working with the fader channels i'd allocated. Tried the on / off sequence after that, and it was the same odd behaviour again. Sorry there's a lot here... any advice would be greatly appreciated and thanks for reading this far!
  23. Hi Jake, Yes, you can downgrade software if you wish. Show files are not however guaranteed to be backwards compatible, only forwards compatible. Before you downgrade, if you haven't seen the video below, it might be worth watching, as it goes through the operation of the console running ZerOS 7.9.2 or later... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjnbGuTHbFA Installation instructions can be found here... http://support.zero88.com/1518909581 ZerOS can be downloaded from the website here... https://zero88.com/forum/files/file/2-zeros-frog2/ Hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know. Edward
  24. Is it possible to downgrade from the latest zeros to zeros 7.8.0 as it is the best software to use to teach new tech students in our leapfrog and we tried to downgrade it the same way as you would update but the desk ignored the software and booted as normal Any ideas?
  25. Last week
  26. yes it will be good to have the possibility to have a Mac compatible software.... wish that Catalyst will go ahead... Take care
  27. Hi Edward, I received your e-mail and I managed to program an effect with an offset. I appreciate your help. But I can not apply the effects on the 10 individual dimmers for the Stripblinder. another question: when I select my fixture Stripblinder and the press Home the lamps ar not on. And I have to select one by one and move weel to turn on all individual dimmer. It is possible to add modifictaion to mode HOME in this kind of fixture to turn on all dimmer one touch or one weel ? I try to edditing effetcs and I follow the instructions by the manual but is not possible. Thanks. Roger
  28. Hi Carsten, ZerOS 7.9.6 includes enhancements and bug fixes. You will notice there will be a firmware update as well as software update included in ZerOS 7.9.6, which improves performance. All the best, Edward
  29. Hi Steve, We recommend installing console software using the method below, if they are running ZerOS 7.9 or later... http://support.zero88.com/1518910761 You can still use the bootable drive method, however this is mainly aimed for updating consoles currently running ZerOS 7.8.3 or earlier. Edward
