    Hi Peter, That software is used to make fixture files for all Zero88 consoles, so it was a useful post! Ben, I will look into making your fixture file on Monday. Edward

    Flx s48 not working

    Hi Peter, Can you confirm that’s crashing on ZerOS 7.9.4? Is it always crashing when trying to patch? Is it the same thing you’re doing at the point of crashing, if so could you give instructions on how to recreate? Hope to get you back up and running as soon as possible. Edward

    Remote APPS

    Hi Steve, Great glad to hear it, no worries at all. Edward

    Remote APPS

    Hi Steve, That's correct, if you save your show that will store all information about the desk, including Network settings, Fixtures Patched, and of course cues, Playbacks and Palettes. Therefore save your show and update the software to ZerOS 7.9.4 by loading the upgrade file into the console like you would a show file. After turning the console off and on to complete the software upgrade, you can then load your show file back in. This should fix the app issues you were experiencing. Any queries let me know. Edward

    Editing chases on 7.9.2+

    Hi Tom, Thierry's comment will work on ZerOS 7.9.2. The latest version of software is ZerOS 7.9.4. You should find you can also use the Load method. With your chase released (fader at 0% so it isn't running), tap LOAD type the cue number followed by the Chase's button, and the cue of the chase will be brought in to the programmer. You can then make your changes, and tap UPDATE ENTER, to update the cue of the chase. Hope that helps, Edward

    Problem saving cue with effects

    Hello, The instructions you've listed should give the effect you're after. Feel free to attach or send me your show file, and I'll take a look to see what the issue is. As a separate note, ZerOS 7.9.3 has now been superseded by ZerOS 7.9.4 available to download here... http://zero88.com/forum/files/file/17-zeros-794/ Edward

    Patch DMX blind on Jester 24/48?

    Hi Lentille, When in <DMX Patch> on a Jester, the channel faders do Output Live. So if you set a DMX address, and apply a channel fader to that address, raising that channel fader will bring that DMX channel on. Hope that helps Edward

    No output from cues!

    Hi Jimbo, Ok thanks for letting me know, will take a look at your email. Edward

    Hi Peter, Great, glad to hear it. Any queries let me know. Edward

    No output from cues!

    Hi Jim, It sounds like there is a patching issue if the Channel faders controlling the dimmers are affecting the movers, so check the DMX addresses. Feel free to email me your show file with the list of problems you are experiencing, and I’ll take a look to find the cause of the issues. Edward

    Flx s48 not working

    Hi Peter, It sounds like your FLX S48 is running an early software version. You can check the software version by tapping Z / Shift, and then System Information. It sounds like it’s running software ZerOS The latest software is ZerOS 7.9.4, available to download from our website here... http://zero88.com/forum/files/file/17-zeros-794/ In ZerOS, the External Monitor is Enabled by default, meaning the Outputs, Cues and Faders windows are displayed on the External monitor rather than the internal touchscreen. Therefore I would recommend installing the new software, that changes this, along with bringing new features and many enhancements. However you can manually access these windows in the internal touchscreen, by tapping SETUP -> System Settings -> External Monitor -> Disabled. By default FLX S consoles will not be patched, unless your dimmer has something called RDM, such as our Betapack 3 or Chilli dimmers. Therefore you’ll need to patch your dimmers into the console, to assign each dimmer channel to a fader. Do this by tapping SETUP -> Add Fixture’s -> Next -> Tap Channel buttons 1 onwards for each dimmer channel, and tap Finish. You can then tap SETUP, and use the channel faders to control your dimmer. Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Hi Piero, Glad that worked for you. If you need fixtures adding to your FROG2 that aren't in Fixture Library 33, you can use our Fixture Editor software to Import them from the latest Global Fixture Library from the website (currently version 35), and then load them into FROG2 manually. http://zero88.com/forum/files/file/10-fixture-tools/ Hope that helps, any queries let me know.

    Edit CUE's on the FLX S48

    Hi Lex, When it comes to editing Playbacks/Cues, you first need to Playback/ Go into your cue you wish to edit, so that it is live on stage. Now using the channel faders, and fixture controls make edits to the lighting state. To lower channel levels, you'll need to level match the channel fader to the intensity level the fixture is at from the cue. The value will change from the cue colour to red in the output window, and you'll then have control of the fixture on the channel fader. When you're happy tap UPDATE, and tap the Flashing Playback button that your cue is coming from. To remove fixtures from a Playback, again Playback your cue, and ensure that the intensity of fixtures you wish to remove is in the programmer. Programmer values are indicated by a red percentage value under the fixture channel number. When only fixtures you want to remove are in the programmer, press and hold UPDATE, and choose "Remove" from the Update Options pop-up, so that it has a Red Stripe next to it. If the SmartTag option also has a Red Stripe next to it, tap this so it goes blue. Then tap the flashing Playback button that your cue is coming from, and these tagged fixtures will be removed. As you stated, editing cues on any of the MFFs or on the Master Playback will behave in exactly the same way. Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hi Eric, If you are receiving that message that means you are running the ZerOS 7.9.4 OS USB Creator software. This software is used to format and create a bootable USB stick, which was the old way to perform software updates. For Phantom ZerOS, you’ll need the dedicated Phantom ZerOS 7.9.4 software also available from the download here... zero88.com/forum/files/file/17-zeros-794/ This software allows you to choose which ZerOS console to emulate. Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward

    Hi Marco, Glad that you found the cause of the problem. SmartTag will ignore parameters if the fixture’s intensity is 0%, which is why you can also get around SmartTag nudging the Fixture up to 1% intensity. If you ever need more support with your FLX S just let us know. Our Europe Sales Manager Franck is German, and would be happy to help you out in German. Edward

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hi Eric, As Solution and FLX run ZerOS, although they have different hardware, their functionality is very similar. As Kevin referred to, Solution has been around for a while, whereas FLX is only 3 years old this year. FLX has a much more powerful processor, future proofing the console for software advancements. FLX does have the ability to be upgraded to output 8 Universes of DMX, whereas Solution is limited to 4. FLX also doesn’t have a fixture limit, whereas Solution/ Solution XL are limited to 248 & 296 fixtures respectively. 6 ZerOS WINGs can be connected to FLX. There are 5 USB ports, so for 6 simultaneously you would need a powered USB hub. Hope that helps, Edward

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hi Eric, All of the consoles you listed run ZerOS, so all operate in a similar way. Don't forget you can download Phantom ZerOS, to try out these consoles on your PC... http://zero88.com/forum/files/file/17-zeros-794/ From your description however, it sounds like FLX would be the ideal console choice... http://zero88.com/products/consoles/flx/index.shtml If you then require more hands on faders, you can add up to 6 ZerOS WINGs... http://zero88.com/products/consoles/wing/index.shtml FLX S48 consoles can control a maximum of 96 fixtures. WINGs will not expand this fixture limit, purely give you more hands on faders. If your required fixtures aren't included in our latest Fixture Library (version 35), send us an email to FixtureSupport@zero88.com, and one of the team will be able to make it for you. A list of available fixtures can be found here... http://support.zero88.com/975072641 Hope that helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  21. Hi ZeuS, That’s a neat little Wireless Access Point, thanks for the link! Edward

    Random intensity effect

    Hi ZeuS, You can copy channel data from one fixture to another on our ORB XF consoles, but not on FLX S unfortunately. Edward

    Hi Piero, Thank you for letting me know. What Fixture Library has ZerOS 7.8 got with it? As it is such a long time ago that software was released, maybe Fixture Library 33 is too large for ZerOS 7.8. Fixture Library 33 is definitely compatible with ZerOS, so it’s probably worth updating. I will check when I’m next in the office for you. Edward
  24. Edward- Z88

    7.8.0 or

    Hi Piero, Between ZerOS 7.8 and ZerOS there are only minor changes and bug fixes, so if you are happy with ZerOS 7.8 then you may as well stay. If you do want to update the software or fixture library, the latest versions for FROG2 are available here... http://zero88.com/forum/files/file/2-zeros-frog2/ Hope that helps Edward

    Spiider Flower Effekte Speichern

    Hi Marco, Are you Recording the fixture’s intensity in with the Playback too? If you’re just trying to store the Flower without intensity, you’ll need to disabled SmartTag. You can do this by pressing and holding RECORD, and tapping SmartTag from the Record Options, so that it has a Blue stripe next to it. You should now find you can record the flower to a Playback. It would be a good idea to store the Flower effect you’re happy with to a Palette first, to allow you to palette reference. Hope that helps Edward
