  2. Ok. Good to know. From time to time reading manuals seems to be a good idea 🤔 I will try over the weekend and give feedback again Thanks and best regards Sven
  3. Hi Sven, This will be the cause. Effects are not installed when installing software via a bootable USB drive. Edward
  4. Well you are right: I really did it like I was used to 😕 You really believe this might be the root cause?
  5. Tapani - are you really solved with this issue because of the Release on Lower setting or do you still have a query related to the lime emitter ‘misbehaving’? With so many emitters in these ETC fixtures you’ll find the other colours on subsequent pages by pressing the Colour button multiple times. If not it would suggest the fixture definition is deficient Sorry if you’re an experienced user and already know this.
  6. Hi Sven, It sounds like you installed ZerOS 7.9.5 using the old installation method, not the method described here... http://support.zero88.com/1518910761 Please try loading the software application directly into the console like a show file, as described in the link above, and the effects should be installed with the software. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on. Edward
  7. Hi Edward I was already able to test your suggestion. Unfortunately it didn't work at all. Still, when I press "Automatically create Effect palettes" only the [No Effect] button gets created. I tried the installation 2 times and even did a fresh download and a deep formatting of the stick. No change at all. I then tried to create a FX palette by using Phantom. Phantom was able to create a palette. But after transferring the showfile to the desk non of those FX buttons were usable (all grey). Any further Ideas? I also wrote an email to support including my showfile because I'm really desperate at the moment 😞 Thank you and best regards Sven

    Default Color

    Hi Martin, Yes, colours can be stored as Default values. To do this, first create your colour you would like. I would recommend you store this as a colour palette when you’re happy with the colour. Then with no playbacks running, and the programmer cleared, select your fixtures, and apply your colour palette. Then tap RECORD, and ensure SmartTag is disabled in the Record Options menu. To open the Record Options on the internal screen, press and hold RECORD. Then tap HOME, and choose Default. You can then double press clear, and when you raise the intensity of the fixtures they will raise in the colour of your palette. You may want to also update these fixture’s home value with this colour. To do this, select the fixtures, press HOME, apply your colour, and then tap RECORD -> HOME, and choose Home. The benefit of using a colour palette to store your home and default values, is that if you update the palette, the default and home value will update too, as they will be referencing the palette. For more information on storing defaults, see below... http://support.zero88.com/1011707631 Hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know. Edward

    Default Color

    Hi everyone, I got a Cameo Pixbar 600 for testing. I adjusted the colors to match the color to the rest of our older halogen floods. Is it possible to save the actual color as a default value, so when I rise the fader, the lamps will light up in that color? Tried around with the home and default options, but no luck... Thanks, Martin P.S. Having this lamp, my interest in pixel mapping has rised a little.
  10. 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
  11. Hello, Glad to hear this solved the problem. All the best, Edward
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Hi Sven, OK, let me know how you get on. All the best, Edward
  15. Hi Edward, thank you for your hint. I will test this over the weekend and will give feedback if it worked. Best regards Sven
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. Last week
  23. 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?
  24. 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
  25. 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
  26. 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
  27. 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
