I was on the field yesterday, just helping a sound guy who apparently had to do also the lights for a simple concert. Nothing difficult but as he had a bunch of microphones to look after he was asking me to make him RGB faders on FLX. So I went to setup>settings>attributes>colour settings. Pushed Yes to "Keep parameters separate?". Went back to live, dialed red on fixture, untagged everything else and recorded it with option to record tagged parameters only. Did same to green and blue. And the outcome was,... it didn't! So, I thought to try all the options there are. I've tried it with the intensity on and off, with Yes and no to "keep parameters separately", with faders assigned as colour control, with the option always "display intensity encoder" and without it, with RGB and with CMY mode, with HTP and LTP, etc. ,etc., etc. and...... still nothing. I know that the intensity of additive fixture comes from all the colors on, so no need to lecture me about it. But shouldn't the lighting desk be capable to make 3 simple RGB faders so they wouldn't affect other parameters? And what is the reason to put there an option to "keep parameters separate" if it anyway doesn't? So, in the and the solution was, raw DMX patch with group of channels installed on 3 submasters. But isn't it just "s...id"!
