  1. I don't know what you're talking about, Leap Frog and Leap Frog 48 are completely different names... 😂😏. Edward
  2. Hi Kevin, Well, yes they are! ETC used to do an Eos console, now they do an Eos Ti. They all run Eos software - presumably named after the console or vice-versa. Edward
  3. Hi Kevin, No problem. Yes that's correct Eos is their software platform that runs on Ion. Edward
  4. Hello, As Kevin mentions, Ian Knight should be able to help you with this. Alternatively, feel free to drop us an email to support@zero88.com, and one of the team will be able to get back to you and let you know the best steps on getting a replacement. Edward
  5. Hi Kevin, FLX cannot read ETC Eos show files. FLX can however read manufacturer specific data contained within the ASCII show files that Eos can export. I don't believe the Eos software version will matter. Therefore either get the producer to send the ASCII export, or ask them to send the whole show file, and then using ETC Nomad (their equivalent of Phantom), export to ASCII yourself. You'll then be able to load the ASCII file into FLX. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  6. No problem, glad I could help. Let me know is there’s anything else I can help with. Edward
  7. Hello, This is because by default, the Fan mode for position is set to "Fan First". To change the fan mode to achieve what you are looking for, hold SETUP and tap the Position tab on the touchscreen (this will appear when you have a moving fixture selected). This will open the Position Options, where you can hold Z/SHIFT, and choose "Fan Middle", so that the red stripe changes from Fan First to Fan Middle. Release SHIFT, and press OK on the window. Now when you hold Z/SHIFT and dial the Pan/Tilt encoder, your selected fixtures will be fanned from the middle. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  8. Hi Philip, Of course! To do this, firstly program your chase sequence to any empty playback. Then, view your Master Playback (if you aren't already hold MEMORIES and tap the Master Playback's GO button), and tap the Settings button of the cue you would like your chase to start running in. From the Settings window tap Macros..., and then tap Trigger Cue Stacks. All of your programmed playbacks will start to flash, where you can then tap your chase's button that you would like to trigger. Then OK the Macros window, and OK the Settings window. Now when you go into this cue, as well as the cue running, the chase will fade in over the cue fade times too. If you would like the chase to turn off in the next cue in the Master Playback, tap the Settings button of the next cue. Repeat the same process as above, however in the Macros window choose the Release Cue stacks option. Hope this helps, Edward
  9. Hi Phil, No problem, let me know if I can help with anything else. Edward
  10. Hi Philip, The cause of this is the way it has been programmed. The fixture that is causing problems must have been panned the long way round to get to the desired position. There are many ways to solve this issue. Personally, I would go into cue 1, select my fixtures, and move them both so that they are in the position I want, moving them in the shortest path possible. Then, record this position as a position palette. To do this tap RECORD -> POSITION -> Choose an MFK to record to. It's always a good idea to record palettes for pretty much everything you're doing, so that if you need to update the position you can simply update a single palette. It also makes it easier to recall certain positions. On Solution consoles you have the ability to record 400 position palettes, so you don't need to worry about running out in a hurry. Now, double tap CLEAR, and go into cue 2 in your cue stack - your mover will again fly all the way round the wrong direction. Select both fixtures, and apply the palette you just programmed. You should find one fixture barely moves, and the other swings back round to the correct position. Then tap UPDATE, and tap the playback's button to update the cue. Hope this helps, if you have any queries just let me know. Edward
  11. Hi Rob, Just to confirm, Effect 2 through to Effect 10 all seem to be giving you a figure of 8, apart from Effect 7 (Vertical Line) which is working? This is the case even when the fixture is tilted away from the home position? Do you have any other moving heads patched in? If you apply the effects to these do you get the same results? Do the other effects such as those for colour and intensity appear to be working with the MAC 600? Feel free to send a copy of your show file to support@zero88.com with a description of the issue, and one of the team will be able to take a look for you. Edward
  12. Hello, Ah that makes perfect sense. Glad that works for you. If you have any questions just let me know. Edward
  13. Hi Julian, Just to confirm, what are you using Playback 1's fader for? By default, the playback's fader will scale the level of the intensity of the effects in the playback. For playback 2 to control the intensity of playback 1, you will need to set up playback 2 as an inhibit fader. To do this, select your fixtures in the group contained in playback 1, and turn the fixtures on to full. Then tap RECORD, and tap playback 2 to store it their. Then, making sure you are in Playbacks fader function, hold SETUP and tap Playback 2's button. Then from the Intensity mixing options choose Inhibit, and click OK on the settings window. Now, Playback 2 will act as an intensity master across the whole console for these fixtures. With Intensity Effects, the Size parameter defines how large the intensity range is on the fixtures. For example with a simple Fader effect, with Size at 100 the fixture will range from 0-100% - a range of 100%. If you then reduce the fixture's intensity to 25%, and the Size down to 50%, the fixture will then range from 0-50% - a range of 50%. If you then set a fixture's intensity at 50% for example, and set the intensity effect size to 50, the fixture with then be in the range of 25%-75% - still a range of 50%. Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know. Edward
  14. Hi Piero, Unfortunately I don’t believe there is, as the App Store only allows for one active version of the app. Edward
  15. Hi Alex, There aren’t currently any plans to update the Fixture Editor, however this is something we can bear in mind. A better solution may be to have up/ down arrows at the end of each parameter row, which you could use to reorder the parameters within their attribute. Edward
  16. Hello, Yes, it is possible to Go back through a cue stack, as well as Go forwards. The button under each playback can have 2 different behaviours, one for when it is pressed, and a shifted function for when the button is pressed with the SHIFT key held down. You can therefore configure pressing the playback button to Go forwards, and holding SHIFT and pressing the button to go back. To customise this hold SETUP and tap the Playback's button. At the bottom of the Settings window is a button function option. If you hold SHIFT, you will see the red stripe move from Go (Fade), to Go (Snap). With SHIFT held down, choose "Pause" from the options, release the SHIFT key, and then click OK on the settings window. Now, when you hold SHIFT and tap the playback button, it will act as a Pause if a cue transition is in progress, or a Go back if the transition has completed. You can read more about Playback Settings here... http://support.zero88.com/1077997011 Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  17. Hello, Thanks very much for letting us know. Edward
  18. Hi Sven, Great, glad to hear it! Just let me know if there is anything else I can do. Edward
  19. Hi Rob, As Kevin mentions, this could be due to the Speed and Size parameters. If you have not Panned or Tilted your fixtures and they are still in their 50/50 home position, try adjusting their position, and then apply the effects. You should then find that for example a circle effect looks like a circle. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. Edward
  20. Hi Benjamin, Yes that's correct, that LCD is part of a larger PCB. I may be biased, but yes, putting the money towards a new FLX S24 would certainly sound like a better investment to me! For your information, the order code for the TL Panel PCB is 1216399. Any queries let me know. Edward
  21. Hi Simon, For this, your best bet is to create this as a “Shutter” parameter, with a default value of 134. Then tick the “Scale by Virtual Intensity” box for the parameter. Then add a Brightness parameter named “Dimmer”, with a default of 255, and tick the “Virtual Parameter” box. This will grey out the DMX address field. This dimmer will then by default scale the shutter parameter between 0-134, giving you a dimmer. If you do then need to access the strobe, you can then adjust the Shutter parameter. There isn’t a way to split a parameter, but this method should achieve what your after. Hope this helps and makes sense, any queries let me know. Edward
  22. Hi Carpo, There isn’t a dedicated Move/ Copy function on FLX S consoles - copying groups is something you can do on FLX. Therefore your best bet is ensure there are no fixtures selected, select your group, tap RECORD, and choose your new location. Then Delete the group from the old location. If you find they fade from white to the recorded colour, this is due to the cue colour fade. You can edit this by holding VIEW and tap the playback’s button, and then select the colour fade and adjust to 0 seconds using the encoder wheels. If you wish to remove all colour data from the playback, raise the playback, select the fixtures, hold CLEAR and tap the colour tab, so that the colour parameters become tagged (alternatively jog one of the colour encoder wheels to tag them). Then hold UPDATE and deselect SmartTag, choose Remove, and then tap the playback’ button to complete the update. This is then going to remove any tagged information from the playback. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward
  23. Hi Carpo, No problem. Just let me know if there’s anything else I can help with. Edward
  24. Hi Carpo, Chaser is the best effect to use for a standard strobe. You can then speed it up to suit. You can then customise it by configuring Size and Offset values across the fixtures. If you’d like the fixture to spend more time on, use a Mark On effect, and if you’d like the fixtures to spend more time off, use a Mark Off. When dealing with quick strobe effects, you may find you get to a certain speed where it will start to get messy. This is due to the refresh rate of the DMX signal and the fixtures themselves recieving it- if they miss one of the “on” or “off” messages, it doesn’t look as clean or sharp as you may want. This is why having a dedicated strobe channel on a fixture comes in handy. Hope this helps, any queries let me know. Edward
