  1. Hi Edward No, I certainly came out of setup after patching - remember this has happened twice now, once when I had been doing patching, then a few days (and rehearsals) later. We haven't added any fixtures since 35 (36 was going to be smoke but we abandoned that) and all other fixtures were already patched and set. We have RDM turned off as our Robe 600's don't like it. Fixture 35 is a dimmer channel on a Chilli 2410 pack (we've two making 48 channels) so no RDM either. Peter

    Tracking for idiots

    What are these terms of which you speak...? Let's get diaries together.
  3. Evening! I patched in our back line of halogens a fortnight ago, desk channel 35, DMX channel 26. They were working all night whilst I focussed. The next night, @robhurt came to program and the halogens weren't working - channel 35 was still patched as a dimmer fixture but with no DMX assignment. We patched back in and continued. Rob has saved to his USB stick every night after programming or rehearsals. Tonight we've come to run a rehearsal and the DMX assignment is missing again... Attached is last night's saved file. Thoughts? Peter Red Riding Hood 2020.isf
  4. I understand what you've done, and re-reading the manual tells me that mode 1 and 5 are identical in function, just with a different DMX channel order - which facilitates a custom mode 5 fixture definition, allowing 2x RGBW after it. However I also noticed the virtual colour wheel which I wasn't consciously aware of before - though Rob uses it more than I do. Can the colour effects (of the normal fixture definition) apply to the virtual colour wheel, thus affecting the whole fixture colour (zones 1-3 together) as a normal RGBW LED light would? (We have Prolights LEDPAR64's). I think that's the bit that Rob struggles with? Peter
  5. Ooh, interesting idea... We're in Mode 1 at the moment; I've not read the DMX chart on which is which recently but Rob wanted mode 1 so that's what we did. I'll load that into desk sometime this week, but i've to remove the flat-pack stage first (we're a church first and foremost) before I'll have time to play with the lights; they'll stay rigged on the bar though so plenty of time.

  6. Hello! Me and @robhurt have just purchased some Robe Robin 600 LED Washes that we used to hire regularly, but they were being sold off so we bought them outright. We always "put up" with using the in-built colour presets (using the wheel-blob on page 5(?) of the colour screen), or occasionally updating the basic default colour pallettes (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta...) with the colour values of the 600's by setting each zone to red, then updating pallette, then setting each zone to blue, then updating pallette..... etc etc etc But, that still doesn't allow the FLX colour effects to work. And using the inbuilt colour effects sets the same value to all units, there's no offset or speed control. Can anyone help with our understanding, mis-understanding or approach to using colour effects on zoned units such as these 600's? They don't take RGB/CMY values, they take brightnesses of red LED zone 1, blue LED zone 3, etc. Peter
  7. Right, i've subsequently found the two threads below (neither called "...effects..." so I didn't see them): Downloading the library file within the second thread has fixed the issue, so please add us to the list of customers affected by this problem. (Original FLX for reference) Peter
  8. Help.... Dress Rehearsal in two hours.... We've just updated desk from 7.9.4 to 7.9.5 to get the additional effects that @robhurt has been waiting for. However when you go to "Automatically update effects" it says there are NO effects - even the ones from 7.9.4 have disappeared. This is with a blank show file and a single patched fixture (Martin Mac 250 Krypton - Enhanced mode) , not even using our existing show file. I've downloaded Phantom 7.9.5 and can see that all the effects are working in there. This was originally with the "prep USB stick, then power up with stick inserted" method; we tried "Setup > Load > install" but this bricked the console, wouldn't boot pass the segments going dizzy on the channel/page LCD. Reloading via prepped stick has got the console working again. Any advice? Peter

    Effect, be gone!

    Ah, yes, the wonderful smarttag that everyone* hates. (*Me and Rob hate cos it gets us in a pickle every blooming year!!!!) I had a feeling it was tagging so I made absolutely sure every parameter was tagged (blue box) yet still it wasn't doing anything. :-) Problem solved! Peter

    Effect, be gone!

    Hi. I'm with @robhurt on a show. Dress is this Friday, to open on Saturday. Cue 46 in the attached file is blackout before the interval, then cue 47 is the interval lights. Channels 9+10 (Infinity iW1915) have an effect on them in cues 45.* We cannot persuade the FLX to stop that effect when we go to 46. It is moving on dark ("Source: D") but the effect is still active so the fixtures are still dancing. However the next time they are used is cue 49, static position with intensity. Opening them in OrbFX Phantom I can't see the effect showing anywhere, though I don't pretend to know FLX or Orb in any great depth. The same is true about 4-5 other times in the show, where we can't stop the effect, but 46 is the easiest to work out what's happening. We expected that 9+10 > Effect > No Effect > Update > Enter would sort it.... but the effect starts again as soon as you hit enter. Any suggestions? Peter Old Mother Hubbard 2019.isf
  11. Bonjour et Bienvenue Eric. Je suis Anglais, et j'adore parler en français - mais j'ai oublié tous les mots après l'école! Peter
  12. Apparently not! I am for various forums/products, but not for Zero88.
  13. kgallen, we can't see whatever you posted under your sentence there?
  14. Sorry, just realised this is posted in the Fixture Request forum! I thought I was only subscribed to the FLX forum so was giving you an FLX response! Peter
  15. HI Ben Are you aware of/familiar with the Fixture Editor? http://support.zero88.com/Fixture-Library/975405071/Fixture-Tools.htm I've used that to create my own profiles when needed. Peter
