  1. Hi @Paul Bennett 211 The first thing I would do, is readdress the "faulty" LED batten, to match the start address of a batten that is working. It should then behave identically to the batten that is working correctly. Please try this, and let us know how you get on. Edward
  2. Hi @Techie_v2 This would be absolutely fine. Providing that you are using suitably rated cabling, the cables and sockets will be rated up to 15 amps. The combined load on the pair of 15 amp sockets per channel, must not exceed 10 amps. You could therefore theoretically have 5 amps connected to both sockets simultaneously, or 10 amps connected to one of the sockets. You could therefore plug in a pair of 1kw PAR 64s into a single socket of the dimmers by using a grelco/squelly. Hope this helps, Edward
  3. Hi Paul, This is the method that used to be used to control LED battens, where each "cell" was patched as a separate fixture. This is no longer required in the latest software for FLX consoles, as each batten can be patched as a single fixture. If you would like to look at updating your console's software, and re-patching the individual cells as battens, please send us an email to support@zero88.com, and we can advise. When you save your show file to a USB drive, absolutely all settings, patching and programming will be saved. See the link below for more information... https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/setup/save In one very unhelpful word: "potentially". If your battens have RDM, and RDM that is implemented well, then it'll work absolutely fine. If they don't, it won't, so I'd suggest sticking with manual patching for now. Please see the link below for more information on RigSync... https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/setup/universes/remote-device-management Thank you for sharing a spreadsheet. This confirms that your battens should be in 36-channel mode, to work correctly with your console. They will need to have the following start addresses: Batten 1 - 144 Batten 2 - 180 Batten 3 - 216 Batten 4 - 252 Batten 5 - 288 Batten 6 - 324 Batten 7 - 360 Please check the battens are configured correctly, to match the patch on the console. Hope this helps, Edward

    Hi Simon, That is correct - by "start a new show file", make sure you perform a Reset Desk. Edward
  5. Hi @Paul Bennett 211 Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum Firstly, can you confirm whether you are using a standard FLX console, and not a FLX S24 or FLX S48 console? As @Davidmk has suggested, the first thing I would recommend doing is ensure that the modes and DMX addresses of the fixtures patched in your console, match those set on the lights. To find out the mode and address set on each fixture, you will need to navigate the menu of each fixture. To confirm DMX addresses on the console, tap SETUP, to take you to the Fixture Schedule. Along the bottom of the Fixture Schedule you will be able to tap a button to filter and show all your battens. The addresses will be displayed in the right-hand column. To confirm the mode of the fixture, tap one of the fixtures in the Fixture Schedule under the "Change All Profiles" button. You should be taken to a window with three columns. The right-hand column is the mode column, where the current mode will be highlighted. I'd recommend watching the in-depth video below, to find out more about the patching process... I hope this helps. Please let us know how you get on. @Davidmk - thanks very much for your support. Edward

    Hi Simon, For this, you could use the "Revert Rig Back" button. Pressing this button, will revert your fixtures back to the settings they were discovered in. Therefore one you have set your fixtures the required addresses and modes, you could reset your console, and then let your console discover all your fixtures. You can then save this show file, as your base RDM configuration. After the visiting company has come in, you can then reload your base RDM show file, and press Revert Rig Back. For more information, please see the link below... https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/setup/universes/remote-device-management Hope this helps. Edward
  7. Hi @keredyelesob It is not currently possible to trigger Fixture Macros from cues. It is only possible to trigger User Macros. For more information, please see the link below... https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/cues-playbacks/cue-settings/cue-macros The ability to trigger Fixture Macros from cues is something we would like to implement. This is logged as reference number ZOS-6741 on our system. I have raised the priority of this following your request. Currently, you could manually record a Lamp Off command into a cue, by setting the relevant Beam parameter to the required level in the cue, rather than using the Fixture Macros. If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward

    Hi Simon, ZerOS will apply your rig configuration to your show file. It will not apply your show file configuration to your rig. Therefore, if you load in a show file, ZerOS will look at the RDM IDs of the fixtures in the show file, to see whether they match fixtures that are currently connected. If there is a match, ZerOS will change the modes and addresses in the show file, to match the fixtures in the rig. In this situation it will not automatically change the addresses and modes of your fixtures. If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
  10. Hi @pb_blue2 Please could you confirm the software version running on your Jester console? Please see page 50 of the Jester manual for more information on loading fixture files... https://zero88.com/storage/downloads/c58ddc73-7739-464e-99e1-1e4170d4b9b6/jesterml-manual-3.0.pdf#page=50 If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
  11. Salut Delfine, Veuillez configurer vos paramètres réseau conformément à mon message précédent, puis enregistrez une copie de votre fichier de spectacle et envoyez-le par e-mail à support@zero88.com. Nous pourrons alors enquêter. Hi Delfine, Please configure your network settings as per my previous post, and then save a copy of your show file and email this to support@zero88.com. We will then be able to investigate. Edward
  12. Hi Steve, Thank you for the update. I have taken a look at the Cameo CL PixBar 650 Pro, and this seems to be recording into inhibit playbacks correctly. For me, the inhibit playback is correctly scaling the levels of all cell intensities, including when recorded as per 101 @ Full. If this is not working for you, please email us a copy of your show file to support@zero88.com, and we will take a look. When controlling this fixture, by default the Master Intensity will be locked at full, and you will not be able to control it. All intensity commands will be affecting cell intensities only. If you have any questions, please let me know. Edward
  13. Bonjour Delphine, Je vous ai envoyé par e-mail les exportations CSV de vos fichiers de spectacle. Si vous avez des questions, n'hésitez pas à m'en faire part. Hi Delphine, I have emailed the CSV exports from your show files to you. If you have any questions, please let me know. Edward

    HELP window

    Hi Phil, To open or close the Help window you can hold SHIFT and the LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys together. That is quite impressive to get into accidentally! If you have any questions, please let me know. Edward
  15. Hi @droiddk You are correct. If a Submaster button is configured to "Go/Step", the button will simply trigger the cues, at the level of the Submaster's fader. It will not output the cues. Therefore you will only be able to use this option with physical Submaster faders. I believe this must be a mistake in the manual. Apologies for any confusion. "ML" stood for "Moving Lights", whereas "TL" stood for "Theatre Lights". The command line control was tailored for theatrical use. Hope this helps. Edward
  16. Hi @pb_blue Please click the link below to download the fixture file for the Magic FX SmokeJet... https://zero88.com/fixtures/legacy-library/Legacy library (gft41.0)/MAGIC FX/SmokeJet.ift I hope this helps. If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
  17. Hi @droiddk Thanks for the update - as you found, with the SHIFT key held down you won’t be able to make changes to settings effectively (this is also the case in Phantom ZerOS). Edward
  18. Hi @naes The speed of effects programmed into playbacks can be adjusted using the "Speed Override" control. The Speed Override control will affect the playback that is currently being viewed. Which playback are you currently viewing in the Cues window on the console? The playback number will be displayed at the top of the Cues window. To view a playback, press and hold MEMORIES and tap the button below the playback fader you wish to view. Please ensure the Speed Override pot is at 12 o'clock, meaning there will be no Override, and cues will play back at their recorded speed. Hope this helps, Edward
  19. Hi @naes As @thierry mentions, as long as you have saved your current show file to a USB drive, you will be able to proceed with the software update. You will then be able to load your show file back into the console after the update. Edward
  20. Il serait bon d'essayer de connecter un autre périphérique réseau à votre FLX S, au lieu de votre routeur SwisSonic. Si vous ne disposez pas d'un "commutateur Ethernet" auquel vous connecter, essayez de connecter un PC Windows directement à votre FLX S via Ethernet. Vous pourrez alors exécuter l'application ZerOS Monitor sur PC. Il vaudrait la peine de vérifier que votre console fonctionne normalement lorsqu'elle est connectée à votre PC. Si vous ne disposez pas de certaines adresses IP statiques que vous souhaitez utiliser, veuillez utiliser les suivantes : Ordinateur Windows IP -, sous-réseau - Information - https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/networking/windows-ip-configuration Connexion à distance ZeroOS IP -, sous-réseau - Information - https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/setup/devices/remote-apps Veuillez essayer ceci et faites-moi savoir si votre console fonctionne correctement. Si c'est le cas, cela confirme que le routeur est la cause des blocages, et nous pouvons alors explorer pourquoi cela peut être. Si vous avez des questions, veuillez nous en informer ou n'hésitez pas à envoyer un e-mail à support@zero88.com It would be good to try connecting a different network device to your FLX S, instead of your SwisSonic router. If you do not have an "Ethernet Switch" to connect to, please try connecting a Windows PC directly to your FLX S over Ethernet. You will then be able to run the ZerOS Monitor app on PC. It would be worth troubleshooting to check your console operates normally when connected to your PC. If you do not have certain static IP addresses you wish to use, please use the following: Windows PC IP -, Subnet - Information - https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/networking/windows-ip-configuration ZerOS Remote Connection IP -, Subnet - Information - https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/setup/devices/remote-apps Please try this, and let me know whether your console runs smoothly. If it does, this confirms the router is the cause of the freezes, and we can then explore why that may be. If you have any questions, please let us know, or feel free to email support@zero88.com Edward
  21. Toutes mes excuses pour la confusion. Si possible, je recommanderais de connecter votre FLX S à un "commutateur Ethernet" (commutateur réseau) et votre routeur au même "commutateur Ethernet". Cela signifie que votre console n'est pas directement connectée au routeur. D'après votre description, le routeur lui-même semble provoquer le gel de la console, et il serait donc utile de vérifier si le passage via un commutateur Ethernet a un effet. Apologies for the confusion. If possible, I would recommend connecting your FLX S to an "Ethernet Switch" (Network Switch), and your router to the same "Ethernet Switch". This will mean your console is not directly connected to the router. From your description, the router itself seems to be causing the console to freeze, and so it would be helpful to check whether going via an Ethernet switch has an affect. Edward
  22. Hi @Klaas Thank you very much for attaching your show file. There are a couple of aspects which are resulting in the behaviour you are seeing. Firstly, your console is in global Cue Only mode. This means that the console is snapshotting the required fixtures automatically into your cues. In cue 41, which triggers your chase on playback 41, fixtures 2, 129 & 130 are snapshotted at 0%. As the Master Playback is configured to have an Intensity Mixing option of Latest Takes Precedence, the latest instruction is 0%, and therefore the Master Playback and your chase on playback 41 are not mixing effectively. These fixtures are then stuck at 0%, and cannot be controlled by the chase. I would therefore recommend changing your Master Playback's Intensity Mixing option to Highest Takes Precedence. Upon triggering a chase from a playback, you should not need to manually raise the chase's playback fader. The show file is also reporting that your console is running ZerOS 7.9.4 software. When you are able to, I would recommend updating your console's software to ensure you are taking advantage of all the latest features and enhancements. ZerOS 7.9.9 can be downloaded from the link below... https://zero88.com/storage/downloads/607844fa-0fdf-401a-9e42-29c8fac4e7bf/ZerOS- Installation information can be found here... https://zero88.com/manuals/print?manual=zeros&type=section&content=zeros-software As ZerOS 7.9.4 is several versions behind, I would not recommending updating your console during the run of a production, as there will be many software changes. I hope this helps. If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
  23. Bonjour, Merci pour vos réponses à mes questions. Merci d'avoir confirmé que vous utilisez le logiciel ZerOS 7.10 et merci de fournir un lien vers votre routeur. Avez-vous un commutateur Ethernet disponible ? Si oui, êtes-vous en mesure de connecter votre console et le routeur sans fil au commutateur, de sorte qu'il se trouve entre la console et le routeur sans fil ? S'il y a des fichiers de spectacle que vous devez exporter au format CSV, veuillez me les envoyer par e-mail et je pourrai vous envoyer l'exportation CSV. Ce problème sera résolu dans ZerOS 7.11. Si vous avez des questions, n'hésitez pas à m'en faire part. Hello, Thank you for your responses to my questions. Thank you for confirming you are running ZerOS 7.10 software, and thank you for providing a link to your router. Do you have an Ethernet switch available? If so, are you able to connect your console and the wireless router to the switch, so that it sits between the console and the wireless router? If there are any show files you need to export to CSV, please email them to me, and I will be able to send you the CSV export. This issue will be fixed in ZerOS 7.11. If you have any questions, please let me know. Edward
  24. Hi @RichardNR3 Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. If you wish to crossfade from a colour on one playback, to a colour on another playback, you can enable "Fader Controls Colour" in your playback settings. For more information, please see the link below... https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/cues-playbacks/playback-settings/general If you wish to be able to mix your red and blue playbacks together, please see the link below... https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros/cues-playbacks/playing-back-cues/rgb-colour-mixing-on-playbacks I hope this helps, if you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
