  1. (Cough) Yes, I can see the release notes are possibly a bit imprecise... I believe you will only get these on an external monitor -> so not FLX S24 which doesn't have an external monitor port. The release notes should probably say "FLX & FLX S48 now include four desktop layouts on an external monitor...". Sorry 😞
  2. Congratulations! I hope you achieved what you were aiming for! Kevin
  3. I don't believe so. ABTT was the other week. I think they're just hiding this week. Edward is maybe busy at Uni.
  4. Hmm bit of a smoking gun there it seems - existing data works as expected, but the latest version (at least 7.9.5) is not internally populating the database correctly from what the UI is telling us. Especially keen to here back from Z88 now on what their take on this is.
  5. OK, interesting. I wonder if your example is an extension to a similar problem I've been having with recording palettes. What you report looks good. Zero88 chaps need to take a look at your situation too then...
  6. You’re recording too much. You need to not record the things you don’t want to change. So in your colour playback, don’t record position or beamshape. Likewise in your position playback don’t record colour or beamshape. Don’t use Snapshot, that records everything. In Record Options (hold Record button til the form comes up) turn off Snaphot and SmartTag and make sure only the attribute you want recording had the red stripe.
  7. The theory is you just record the tagged parameters. For intensity this should be easy as if you just alter the brightness of a fixture that’s the only thing recorded and all other parameters will track. Make sure in Record Options both Snapshot and SmartTag are off i.e. blue
  8. Assuming I was currently outputting cue 1 (green bar) I click on "cue 3" with the mouse (external monitor) to move the next (orange) bar to cue 3 then "try" the up arrow to get to cue 2 for next. I found the master go would sequence the stack as expected (hence I didn't spot this issue) although as described the arrow keys didn't have control of the next bar.
  9. I'm through this show, but I have another production in a few weeks. Are we anywhere with triaging this report viz a fix? Thanks!
  10. Since this was flagged here and I took notice, I pretty sure I'm in the "always on 7.9.5" - but if I think back to some of my 7.9.4 posting (which version had been on my desk for around a year), I did have some cue-stack-focus "snags" but I think that ended up being user-induced. I've been doing a show this past week or so, and I've have a full setup with mouse/keyboard/monitor, and I've been running the master cue stack from the start - so didn't initially realise this issue until it was raised here, after which point I always made sure I used the mouse to set the focus to the cue stack! However I sometimes have a "bare" config using just the console. I hope Z88 can see this easily and sort it out!

    Save Show?

    You might be able to get them to file an enhancement request for this - although I've not know this feature on any Zero88 console. It depends on how much non-volatile storage they have on the board - I think they're using some relatively expensive (hence relatively small) FeRAM rather than flash for the ongoing active show image. I think there's a good lump of flash in there too so maybe it's feasible to retain multiple show images as you suggest. Anyway, one for the Z88 guys to comment on rather than me blindly reverse-engineering their product! Hope your FLX is otherwise treating you well! Kevin

    Save Show?

    The desk implicitly saves the show internally all of the time, you don't need to do this manually. The Save function is just to save to a USB stick if you want to - you don't have to (although this is wise!). The desk can only hold one (the current) show. There is no internal "USB drive" for saving multiple shows inside the desk. You need to use USB stick for that. Kevin
  13. Have you got the fixture in the same mode as the fixture definition you’re using on the desk? What is the make/model of the light?

    UDK lights?

    They don't. You can "test" them by putting a change in the programmer (say 0@@) then when you hit RECORD then any empty playback or UDK buttons should flash (they won't if they are programmed).
  15. Useful to know... I must try some macros... (other thank triggering playback chases).
