  1. Hello, Whilst we wait for any responses from users with their experiences, I’ll just provide a little information on the subject. Virtually all visualisation packages allow for either Art-Net or sACN (DMX over Ethernet protocols) input, and therefore work with consoles with this functionality. FLX S consoles support both Art-Net and sACN, however also support the CITP protocol. Capture visualisation software can be controlled by CITP, which allows for 2 way communication between the console and visualiser - this therefore allows you to create a look using the visualisation software without the console being connected, and then when you link the console, you can record this lighting state into a cue. It also allows for selecting multiple moving fixtures in Capture, right-clicking on stage where you want them to focus, and you can then record that as a position palette on the console. Another benefit of Capture, is it can be used on the same PC as PhantomZerOS, allowing you to program with visualisation without the need for a console or Unlock Dongle. For information on how to link Phantom ZerOS and Capture on the same PC, see the article below... http://support.zero88.com/988883201 Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know. Edward

    Colour mixing on faders - UV Only

    Hi Nigel, Yes, to Record just the UV parameter onto a playback, it is exactly the same process as RGB, as noted in the article here... http://support.zero88.com/1014413041 All you’ll need to do, is ensure the Intensity and UV parameters are at full, and are the only parameters tagged (indicated by having a lighter blue encoder background, and a red intensity value in the output window). You’ll then be able to record this to a playback, ensuring SmartTag is disabled. Dont forget you can download PhantomZerOS onto a PC, so that you can practice this beforehand by emulating a FLX S. PhantomZerOS is available to download here... https://zero88.com/forum/files/file/17-zeros-794/ If you have any queries just let us know. Edward

    How to use the R G B step on/off effect?

    Happy to help! Let us know if there’s anything else we can do. Edward

    How to use the R G B step on/off effect?

    Hi Carsten, A Red Step On Effect means that by default, Red is at 50%, and Green and Blue flash on from 0%-100%. These levels can of course be adjusted by changing the colour parameter levels in the Colour attribute. Red Step off on the other hand, means that by default, Red is at 50%, and Green and Blue flash off from 100%-0%, again intensities of each colour can be adjusted. You can best see this happening by tapping Z/Shift -> System Information -> DMX Outputs for the fixture's RGB levels. Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know. Edward

    FatFrog generic/preset problem

    OK. When in Test Mode, Channel flash buttons 1 through to 14 select sets of faders and pots to test. Flash 1-8 = Channel Faders Flash 9-10 = Submasters Flash 11 = other pots Flash 13 = Wheels Flash 14 = Buttons. You can check the level reported by the fader on the internal LCD. Any queries just let me know. Edward

    FatFrog generic/preset problem

    Hi Webbo, Have you put the console into Test Mode, to test each of the channel faders? You can do this by booting the console with F1 held down. If you have any queries just drop us an email to support@zero88.com. Cheers Kevin, topic moved. All the best, Edward

    FLX S24 expansion

    Hi Kevin, I don't agree with that comment - lighting consoles are investments. In terms of list price, a 1 universe FLX S24 plus FLX S48 is around £700 more than FLX S24 plus WING. Therefore if budget allows for this, this solution would give you more flexibility. Granted this is still a large sum of money, which is why I said if you were in the position to do this, it would help future proof the system. Edward

    DTS & Cameo fixture missing

    Hi Olaf, Please send us an email to FixtureSupport@zero88.com with a link to the manual for each fixture, and one of the team will be able to make these files for you. Edward

    FLX S24 expansion

    Hello, I do understand where you’re coming from. However, if you are using a FLX S24 plus WING, this would take up more physical space than a FLX S48- it would also make more sense financially to go for the FLX S48, plus it has a Monitor Output for easier viewing of fader behaviour etc. Dont forget the show files are compatible, so if you were in the position to use an S48 for larger shows and an S24 for smaller shows, you could share showfiles for default patch etc if necessary. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help. Edward

    Effect, be gone!

    Hi Peter, Great glad to hear it. If SmartTag does cause you problems, don’t forget you can just disable it and program without it. The key thing to remember when disabling SmartTag is the console will only store programmer information into cues, not information coming from other cues. Any queries let me know. Edward

    Effect, be gone!

    Hi Peter, I won’t get a chance to look at the show file this evening, however it sounds like you are trying to Update cue 46 with SmartTag enabled. As the fixtures are off in cue 46, any commands you try to update them with, including removing effects, will be ignored if SmartTag is enabled and the fixture is off. Therefore... ...then press and hold UPDATE, and choose SmartTag from the Update Options so that it is disabled, and then hit ENTER to complete the command (make sure this is a tracking update). You should then find the update is pulled into the cue. You can turn SmartTag back on again by pressing and holding RECORD/UPDATE, then tap SmartTag so it has a red stripe on it, and then hit RECORD to close the window. Hope this helps, Edward

    FLX S24 expansion

    Hi all, FLX S24 can control a maximum of 48 fixtures. This cannot be increased by software upgrades or adding WINGs- adding wings just avoids the need to work across multiple pages. Both consoles use the same powerful processor, so this limit is purely the number or faders and pages on the physical console. The same goes for the FLX S48- the maximum fixture count is 96. As the others have highlighted, both can have a maximum of 2 universes worth of channels to patch these fixtures onto. Hope this makes sense, if you have any queries let me know. Edward

    new effect + syntax command

    Hello, The existing chaser effect should give you the strobe effect you’re after, if you increase the speed. More Auto Effect palettes such as Lightning Strobe will be coming in the next software update. If that cue is the only active cue on stage, double tap ENTER, and this will select all fixtures currently on stage, allowing you to adjust them. If you enter Blind mode by holding SHIFT and tap Z, you can hold the playback go button of your cue list, type your cue number, and then release the go button. This will load the cue into the blind programmer, for you to edit. You can then tap UPDATE to store the edits and exit Blind mode. Hope this helps Edward
