    Problem creating My own LED strip fixture

    Hi Mark, Currently a fixture can only have one set of RGB control applied to the colour picker. If you require both to be, I would advise making a fixture for the first set of RGB, and patch 2 of them sequentially to control the fixture. To Clear unwanted .ift user fixtures, tap SETUP -> Clear Options -> Clear User Fixtures. Hope that helps Edward

    Hi Emma, Feel free to send an email to FixtureSupport@zero88.com, where one of the team will be able to take a look at the fixture file for you. This will also allow us to add it to our next Fixture Library Release. If you are keen to regularly run chases across the fixture, you may be best to patch each segment as a different warm and cool white fixture. Selecting all fixtures in one go will allow you to easily run intensity effects across it. However if you are getting near your fixture limit, you may not be able to do this. Regarding accessing extra parameters, this is simply done by tapping the Attrbute tab again. So for colour to access the next 4 parameters, tap the Colour tab again to page through. Auto Colour palettes and auto colour effects will only work for a fixture with full colour mixing (RGB, CMY), and therefore these won’t be available for just and warm and cool source. Hope that helps, Edward

    interactive user manual - "Zero88 WIKI"

    Hi Eric, This is an interesting idea. Don't forget what we do have already is the knowledgebase, see below for FLX: http://support.zero88.com/Consoles/FLX/ This contains articles that you can look through or search for when you want to find out how to do or use something. Edward

    3 and 4 Wheel Groups arrangement

    Hi Franck, Yes that's correct, the order the parameters are listed in the Fixture Editor software is the order they'll appear on the console. If you have any queries, feel free to email FixtureSupport@zero88.com, and one of the team can help you out, or make the files for you. Edward

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hi Eric, Really glad you're loving FLX! In response to your comments... -We are planning on improving the Effects engine in the next software update, which bring more useful auto effects. Don't forget to quickly get chases you can use an intensity effect, and use one of the quick offset buttons found along the top of the Effects window. -We are indeed seeing more fixtures using Amber, UV, Lime, Indigo etc. Therefore we are still looking into the best and most accurate way to implement this into the ZerOS colour mixing engine. -Regarding the external monitor, in case you didn't know the shortcut to quickly change the external monitor to your Palettes desktop is SHIFT + VIEW. A single tap of VIEW will then take you back to your Programming desktop. Any queries let me know. Edward

    Hello, Please try re-installing ZerOS 7.9.4. You can do that by downloading and then extracting the software from our website... Then run the ZerOS 7.9.4 OS Creator USB software on preferably a Windows 7 PC, which will then prompt you to format a USB stick. Complete the Wizard, and then plug the USB port into the console and boot. If this doesn’t work, please email Keith as Ian suggested, or email support@zero88.com. Depending on the situation, the console may need to be sent for repair. Any queries let me know. Edward

    Hello, In terms of updating straight to ZerOS 7.9.4, you shouldn't run into any problems. However as Ian mentions, you'll probably want to check with everyone who operates the console first, as there are some big operational changes and improvements. The video below talks through these changes... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjnbGuTHbFA&t= Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Button Wing for FLX S?

    Hi Skippa, No, unfortunately these devices aren’t compatible with FLX S over USB, and there is no MIDI input. Our Solution consoles do except MIDI Notes input. Edward

    Adding chases in cue stack

    Hi Peter, To stop a playback triggering and going to cue 1 when you push its fader up, in the Playback Settings go to Raise & Lower, and disable Trigger on Raise. Similarly, to stop the playback releasing and resetting back to cue 1 when you lower the fader, disable Release on Lower. If you then need to manually release the playback, hold CLEAR and tap its button. Hope that helps Edward

    Adding chases in cue stack

    Hi Pete, Yes Kevin’s correct. Each Playback has its own configurations available. To enter a Playback’s Settings, hold SETUP + tap your playback’s button. In here you have Intensity Mixing and Fader function options. Hope that helps, Edward

    Adding chases in cue stack

    Hi Peter, Hope you're well. Firstly, make sure you're viewing your cue stack on the Master Playback. You can do this by holding VIEW and tapping the Master Playback's GO button. Then, tap the Settings button on the far right of cue 3. Then tap Macros... -> Trigger Cue Stacks ->, and tap the flashing playback button of your pre-programmed chase. Press OK on the Macros window, and OK the Settings window. Now, when you go into cue 3 on the Master Playback, you chase will fade in using cue 3's fade up time. If you then want your chase to fade out when you go into cue 4, you'll need to go into the settings of cue 4, tap Macros... -> Release Cue Stacks -> and again tap your chase's button. Click ok again, and now when you go into cue 4, your chase will fade out over the fade down time of the cue. Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Idiot's guide

    Hello, Firstly, your best bet is to check the dimmers. Are they switched on? If so, what do the LCDs display? If they display “DMX Patched”, then they are receiving DMX data. If they are receiving “No Data”, there’s no DMX input. Unfortunately you also can’t guarantee the port labelled “DMX 2” is for dimmer unit 2. This may instead be the building’s second DMX cabling input, which goes to a DMX patch panel somewhere. More likely than each dimmer having its own input port, they’ll likely be daisy chained, meaning DMX will go into the first dimmer, and then out into the second. If both dimmers are receiving data, turn the Solution on, and ensure the Grand Master, A Master, and B Master faders are all at full. Note that the B Master fader is in fact inverted, so this will need to be at the bottom of its travel to be at full output. Now, use the channel faders labelled Preset A and B. These should simply control each individual lantern plugged into each channel of the dimmers. Let us know how you get on with this, feel free to give me a call when you’re using the system, and we can talk through and hopefully get you up and running. You can call me on 07976 791850. Edward
