  1. Hello, ENTTEC Wings are no longer supported by ZerOS. You will therefore have to run an old software version on your FLX to be able to use them. What software version are you running on your FLX? You can find out by tapping Z -> System Information. If you are on an older version, you will be able to connect your wing, FLX, and other network devices into an ethernet switch. You can then tap SETUP -> Wings on FLX, and ensure FLX is also set to receive a DHCP IP address if the wings are also configured that way. Kind regards, Edward
  2. Hi Carsten, Yes, the Dockhouse Capture file available below, will work with FLX S running ZerOS 7.9.5... http://support.zero88.com/1004254221 If you have any issues just let me know. Edward
  3. Hello, This is logged on our system as issue reference ZOS-9415. This has come about due to the new desktops being implemented. The quickest way of getting back to the cue stack on boot, is to press VIEW, then SHIFT + VIEW, if you don't have a mouse/touch screen connected. If you have any queries let us know. Edward
  4. Hello, By default, these playbacks wouldn't mix - instead LTP rules would be used, so whichever playback you moved latest will be output. However, you can enable Fader Controls Effect on these playbacks. This will mean the fader will scale the Speed and Size of the effect, and so you would then be able to raise both faders to 50% for example, and have both Pan and Tilt movement. For more information on Fader Controls, see below... http://support.zero88.com/1011405471 As I mentioned above, configuring Fader Controls Effect, will give you the ability to control the Speed and the Size of the effect using the playback's fader. If you just wish to control an effect's speed, you can use the Speed Override control. You can set any empty playback to be a Speed Override control, or you can use the dedicated pot for this next to the Master Playback. The Speed Override will give you control over the currently viewed playback, so press and hold MEMORIES and tap the playback you wish to view. There is no way of Pixel Mapping on Solution consoles - you just have the ability to use the on board effects engine. Pixel Mapping will be coming to FLX, not Solution. Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know. Edward
  5. No problem, let us know if there's anything else we can help with. Edward
  6. Hi JP, Yes as Kevin says, when programming a light show, this is normally done by programming a cue stack per song, and the cues within that stack would be triggered using a time code, such as MIDI Time Code. For more information on MIDI on ZerOS, see below... http://support.zero88.com/990063141 Solution consoles have the ability to be upgraded, to allow for MIDI Input. For more information on this, see the article below... http://support.zero88.com/975362081 Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know. Edward
  7. Hello, This is in development. We are currently researching how programmers and operators use Pixel Mapping. If you would like to take part, please click here to fill in our Pixel Mapping Questionnaire. All the best, Edward
  8. Hi Dan, Sorry to hear this. Was this running ZerOS 7.9.5? The software version can be found on your FLX by tapping Z -> System Information, listed next to "Software Version". You have 2 options here. This first, is to edit the playback, so that the cue contains both a position and intensity effect. To do this playback your position effect, select your fixtures (or double tap ENTER to select anything on above 0%), tap EFFECT, choose an intensity effect you would like, and apply an offset using the offset buttons along the top of the effects window. Then tap UPDATE, and tap your playback's button. The other option is to record an intensity effect or an intensity chase onto another playback. When you have done this you will then need to go into this playback's settings, and change the Intensity Mixing to Latest Takes Precedence. Click OK, and now when you fade your chase up over the top of your position the fixture's intensity will be lowered, revealing the chase/effect running. Hope this helps and makes sense, if you have any queries let me know. Edward
  9. Hello, Please drop us an email to FixtureSupport@zero88.com with this request, and the team will be able to create this for you. We will do our best to get this to you for Thursday. Edward
  10. Hi Kevin, We have found the cause of this issue. Please see below... Edward
  11. Hi all, Hope you're well. After further investigations, we have discovered the ZerOS Library file, which contains the new automatic Effect palettes, does not get installed if software updates are performed using the OLD installation method, of creating a bootable USB drive on a Windows PC. The new method of simply loading the software application into the console works correctly. The new method is described on page 7 of the release notes, under "Consoles running ZerOS 7.8.3 or later". The release notes can be downloaded here... In ZerOS 7.9.6 we will ensure the file is included in the old installation method too. Hope this helps, if you have any queries please let us know. Edward
  12. Hi Loz, When you are in Program Mode on the Jester ML, tap the colour palette you wish to name, press the right arrow key to select the name field, and then press ENTER. The MFKs will then allow you to type in the name, or you can use a USB keyboard. Hope this helps, Edward
  13. Hello, No problem at all, many thanks for the information. From your description, I am not sure why those movers aren't being stored into cue 2. Please could you send us a copy of this show file to support@zero88.com, along with a description of what fixtures you wish to recorded, and we'll take a look to see what is going on. Edward
  14. Hello, Macros can only be triggered by cues. Therefore releasing a playback by pulling the fader down can’t trigger a macro. What you could do however, is Record a blank second cue onto the playback. In this cue, trigger a macro that deselected your fixtures, and also add a release macro that releases its own playback. Then go into the playback settings (hold SETUP and tap the playback’s button), tap Raise and Lower, and press disable release on lower. Now, you can fade your playback up, then fade it down, and then press the playback’s button, which will release the playback and deselect the fixtures. Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know. Edward
  15. Hello, Thanks for the request. You currently can't access Rem Dim from the ZerOS Remote App. If you are using the ZerOS Monitor app viewing the Faders desktop, you could assign a UDK to be a Rem Dim function, which you could then use via the app. Hope this helps, Edward
  16. Hi all, Thanks for your comments. We will bear this feature in mind - especially useful for when the consoles are on site-wide networks. Edward
  17. Hello, Glad to hear you solved the issue. Let us know if we can help with anything else. Edward

    My stupid questions

    Hi Kevin, Noted - will be creating more knowledge base articles soon. Edward
  19. Hi Philipp, Apologies for my delay in replying. 1 - Yes this is possible. The green faders are preset B, which are fixture numbers 25 through 48. Therefore simply tap SETUP, select your LED fixtures, and renumber them to be in the range of 25 - 48. If Dimmers are currently patched onto preset B which you aren't using, press and hold preset flash 25, and tap preset flash 48, to select 25 - 48. Then tap DELETE, to delete all of these fixtures from your show. Then you have renumbered your fixtures, tap SETUP, and then tap SPECIAL. Under Channel Button on the MFKs, this will allow you to configure the channel buttons to be Select buttons, meaning these buttons can select your LED fixtures, allowing you to use the MFKs and encoders to control them. 2 - You can change the channel fader preset mode to HTP rather than LTP. To do this tap SPECIAL -> Preset Mode -> HTP. Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know. Edward

    My stupid questions

    Hi all, Apologies for the delay in replying, I have been out of the office - normal service will now resume! A "spreadsheet" style Program Window that shows what is recorded into cues isn't currently available on FLX series consoles - this remains currently only on ORB or Solution consoles. Currently as Kevin says, if I have recorded fixtures into a cue accidentally, go into the cue, select the fixtures you don't want, and click HOME, tap UPDATE -> ensure SmartTag is disabled, and tap Remove. Then tap the playback's button to complete the command. HOME is pressed as a quick way of tagging those fixtures you don't want. Fade times on Flash are currently only available on the Fade Up (using the cue time). For flash on fade up and down, the UDKs can be used. As Kevin mentions, the default encoder behaviour for effects is Absolute, meaning when an encoder is adjusted, all selected fixtures are given the parameter value displayed above the encoder wheel. For the offset parameter, this therefore means you are offsetting all fixtures by the same amount, resulting in no visible offset across the fixtures. This is where you can hold SHIFT and dial the encoder to fan the fixtures - the parameter will display the value of the first selected fixture. If you want to see the fanned value you have given for each fixture, you can use the Next/Previous fixture shortcut, of SHIFT + LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys, or SHIFT + EXCEPT or AND. There isn't an option to spread a mood board across your fixtures. You can however select a filter from a mood, jump to the colour picker, and then fan from this point in the colour spectrum. If you record an effect to a playback, you can configure the fader of the playback to control the effect, giving you both speed and size control. If you just want Speed control, you can use Speed Override, which will allow you to control the speed of the effect running in the currently viewed playback. Fader Controls will go from the fixture's current state, and allow you to fade through to the recorded state. White is often seen for LED fixtures, as the default for LED fixtures is the colour in white, so you fade from the defaults to the recorded colour. Could you elaborate on this one? As Kevin mentioned, I would use the Output Window's "Preview" mode for this, to show you information on the Next cue. This isn't currently available with effects - you would have to record an effect into a cue, and then have an auto-follow on cue afterwards that would stop the effect. Alternatively, you could record a chase. Chases have the Shots option to define the number of times the chase runs. Hold SETUP + tap EFFECT. Hold SHIFT, and choose "Fan Middle" or "Fan V". Click OK, and then hold SHIFT and dial the Offset parameter. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any queries, or any more questions. Edward

    Hi all, As Simon mentions, he has discovered an issue where Art-Net data doesn't seem to be streaming. We haven't heard any other reports of this yet, so if you are experiencing the same issue please let us know. AFX- that would be great if you could post back with your results. Let us know whether you find there is an issue. We are continuing to try and recreate this internally and struggling, which is very frustrating! Will post back when we have more information on the issue. If you have any queries just let us know. Edward
  22. Hi both, The new external desktops are available for both FLX S24 and S48. S48 can be accessed via the external monitor output, and S24 via the Remote Monitor. Hope this helps, Edward
  23. Hi Kevin, I have completed my degree, however Jon and I are both out of the office at the moment so our replies have been a little delayed. Many thanks for the information and investigation into this. I will take a look at this issue further when I have a physical console in front of me. All the best, Edward
  24. Hello, For this, type 1 THRU @ ., Tap RECORD, and then tap a UDK. Hold SETUP and tap the UDK to open its Settings. In the Flash function, change this to Latch, and change the mix mode to LTP. You can then configure fade times, and click OK. You should then find you can use this UDK to fade all fixtures to 0 over a fade time. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on. Edward
  25. Hi Claude, If so, your console is in basic programming mode. To change this, press SETUP -> Settings, and ensure Tracking Options are enabled. Then exit SETUP, and press and hold RECORD. The SmartTag option should be available - ensure that the console also has “Cue Only” selected, unless you would like to program cue stacks with tracking behaviour. Hope this helps, Edward
