    Flx Back button

    It's very interesting to know that the pause button allows to have and by tapping twice, the possibility to go back. It was something that I was doing by pressing the GO button and calling the previous number ... So just for information if we press this button once because we need a break, what time do we have for the FLX does not confuse a return back and a pause and restart immediately the effect in short? And so is there a visual indication on the screen that allows us to know that we are in reverse? When we want to start again, how do we do it? Should he press the "GO" button? thank you so much. Eric

    have strange things on FLX....

    Hello Edward For the appearance of several DMX channels on a fixture, in general, I prefer to change the DMX numbers on the devices themselves. But there in the occurrence in the Theater where I was all dimmers DMX are blocked. Thus the only way to group multiple projectors is to group several DMX addresses with 1 fixture. exemple for Face projecteurs, there s about 16 projecteurs, but need at first two dimmer fixture... But with this bug, I use in fact 6 dimmers fixtures. 1 / DMX Addition: I will try for the addition of DMX address and I would see if indeed everything works. 2 / For my second problem, I will recover the file and send it to you. I will also try to reproduce the problem. 3 / I can not remember if I left the Setup part or not ... But it's true that I did not think about the fact that when we leave the setup menu we see a window recording. And if indeed I stayed on the window of erasure, or just been on the window of state DMX devices, it may explain that when I turned on the FLX, all old devices were still present. I also noticed that when one makes the copy of a cue, one also sees the window of registration. 1/ Question: From how many Wing advise you a USB HUB? I ask you the question because I think in the coming months to buy a second pack FLX + Wing to have a help in case of trouble or breakdown. And especially in my framework of use with many projectors I need a large number of faders. So currently with 48 faders (FLX / Wings) I'm a little light. And have a Wing and more to go up to at least 72 Fader, and so allow me to have live all my sources on stage. So I think eventually go to 96 Fader, or 3 wings ... But I think also in the coming times to have a keyboard to name the CUES and Fixtures. 2/ last thing : It's when we are live. We play the playback in order of registration, without worries. But it can happen that in a show you have to do a manual correction simply because the artists are not there or it takes on a scene. So in "chanels" mode, we change the state of a projector. Until then no worries. except that "clear" button lights up to tell us that we took hold of the recorded things. But the trouble is that to move to the next Cues must press "Clear" to erase what we have done and make the fixture again accesible things programmed ... Except that this is sometimes a concern, because to press clear, make things disappear at once. Which aesthetically is not really pretty ... Is there an option to make changes in live mode is effective when the fader goes up and things can return to their first state when the fader returns to its place ...? Notice and return of use ... For a furtur evolution of your products, I think there are some limitations that should be studied for the future. 1 / It is the choice to be able to use the 24 MFF is in "Chanel" or "PLayback". I think that having the choice for example 12 MFF see 6 MFF would be a plus in order to choose the configuration of its console. 2 / The lack of space to write the name of use of each fader on an adhesive to write on it is a pity. Indeed when using the FLX in one place, then another place and so on, the types of equipment and placement of equipment are very different. So it is important to write what is in front, comes from the sides, counters, and all special projectors. And so the only place possible and at the top of the faders on top and all the way down below the flash buttons. Which is not always practical. So I think that when you make evolve future products, we must not forget that the technician who will use your products, must register things. Then it is certain that on the sound mixers, now below each fader, there are small colored LCD screens that allow to write things. But the cost of such a thing, would certainly change too much the cost of your products. (Like motorized position faders ...) But I think the user feedback is important to you ... So I would say that a FLX 2 could have - more space to leave the technician's writing, - MFF fader utlisations (Chanel / playback) separated instead of group by 24, ie to have it by 12 from the top and bottom or by group of 6 X 4 ... - have the opportunity to put a second video screen for access to more things, especially when you can have a lot of fixtures. - Possible effects. I understand that you are going to evolve this part there. And indeed it is important, because when the time is short, and that it is necessary to fully exploit all the projectors of a show to have more possibilities of effects on the colors and the movements would be a big plus .. And especially competed with the GRAND MA and Avolites ... Many thanks to you Edward and thank you for your positive presence to help us! PS: I was able to talk to you about a kind of WIKI notice that is closer to the current update, would be a big plus for the best use of the FLX. And I think that a good part of the questions that we ask to you, and you would be with answers in this online notice close to the latest versions of ZerOs ... Think about it ... It means having time to do it, but then it's a lot of time to win ... And I think you can count on the community of users to help you better!

    Theater cues crossfades

    Hello, I do not know if I understood well... You have several states. CUE1 "Face 100 % - Side Bleue 100 %" Cue2 " Face 50% - Side Red at 50%" Cue3 " Face 20 % - Side off - Back Bleue at 80%" Cue4 "Black" Cue5 "Face 0% - Side OFF - Back red and bleu at 70%" etc. You want a different fade effect between each cue ... For my shows I need for each painting transitions with different times ... Ditto for blacks. Is Cue 1 fade of 3 seconds to go on Cue 2 fade of 15 seconds to go on Cue 3 fade of 7 seconds to go on Cue 4 fade of 0 sec to go on Cue 5 etc ... So I end up with 300 to 400 cues that all have their time to bland ... For my part at the time of recording I have the ability to record a specific fade time ... which can be changed as much as possible according to the needs ... Knowing that we can also make a different fade time to go up and down as needed. Thus it is necessary at the moment of "record" to indicate the time of fade with the number of cue ... I do not know if that can help ... Good continuity ! Eric VDA

    have strange things on FLX....

    Hello, today I went on a new show and I had strange things .... 0 / Before starting my new show I did a "Reset Desk" of the FLX! 1 / I enter a fixture 1 (dimmer chanel) with for example the DMX channel 150. I want to add a second DMX channel eg 180. (function add DMX) All is well. And I enter a last number, for example the 210, and when I validate the addition of the last channel. I find myself with 150 180 210 and 211 ... I delete everything thinking I made a syntax error. I start again, with 150, 180 and 210 in DMX channels and I find myself again with 150 180 210 and 211 ... I do not understand how the 211 can come in the group alone without being added with the numeric keypad of the FLX ... 2 / Conversely, sometimes when I'm adding DMX numbers, For example, 205 Then the 209, no worries. And if I want to add for example the 221 I have a display that the number is already used ... I cancel the addition to look on the table DMX what it is ... And the number is not utlise ... I repeat everything from the beginning and I have the same sentence that the number is already used ... The only solution is to use a new fixture to add the DMX channel and more ... But that limits me the choice of fader .... 3 / Last thing Last night before arriving today at the show I had a reset desk to erase everything. This morning when I plugged the console, and I plugged in it I realized that all the fixtures erased yesterday had returned and so I had to redone a reset desk ... End of my questions and strange things ... what should I do to solve the various worries that I have seen this morning and today. thank you so much Eric VDA -------- Bonjour, aujourd 'hui je suis reparti sur un nouveau spectacle et j'ai eu des choses etranges.... 0/ Avant de commencer mon nouveau spectacle j'ai fait un "Reset Desk" de la FLX ! 1/ je rentre une fixture 1 (Dimmer chanel) avec par exemple le canal DMX 150. Je veux rajouter un second canal DMX par exemple 180.(fonction add DMX) Tout va bien. Et je rentre un dernier numero, par exemple le 210, et lorsque je valide l'ajout du dernier canal. je me retrouve avec 150 180 210 et 211... J'efface le tout pensant avoir fait une erreur de syntaxe. Je recommence le tout, avec 150, 180 et 210 en canaux DMX et je me retrouver de nouveau avec 150 180 210 et 211... Je ne comprends pas comment le 211 peut venir dans le groupe tout seul sans etré ajouté avec le pavé numerique de la FLX... 2/ A l'inverse, parfois lorsque je suis en train de rajouter des numeros DMX, Par exemple le 205 Puis le 209, pas de soucis. Et si je veux rajouter par exemple le 221 j'ai un affichage que le numero est deja utlisé... J'annule le rajout pour regarder sur la table DMX ce qu'il en est... Et le numero n'est pas utlisé... Je recommance tout depuis le début et j'ai la meme phrase que le numero est deja utilisé... La seule solution est d'utilisé une nouvelle fixture pour ajouter le canal DMX en plus... Mais cela me limite le choix des fader.... 3/Derniere chose, Hier soir avant d'arriver aujourd'hui au spectacle j'avais fait un reset Desk pour tout effacer. Ce matin quand j'ai branché la console, et que je l'ai branché je me suis rendu que tous les fixtures effacées hier etait revenues et donc j'ai du refaite un reset desk... Fin de mes questions et petites choses etranges... que dois je faire pour resoudre les différents soucis que j'ai pu constater ce matin et aujourd'hui. Merci beaucoup Eric VDA

    interactive user manual - "Zero88 WIKI"

    Hello Edward, I think that the solution to have a user manual is precisely to have something that is organized and logical for a new user. Because the user manual that can be downloaded is organized by chapter. And if this notice is out of date, (certainly due to the fact that ZerOs versions are faster than the time to write and explain the evolutions ...) it still allows to have a good idea of the operation of the FLX. But I really think that allowing the new user to have an up-to-date and easily accessible user manual, should be an additional argument coming to you rather than in other brands. Indeed how many users can tear their hair to find solutions ... And how many brands have only the record of version 1, so that users have no other choice of having to find evening another console and especially disadvised the console. Or try to do the best without the possibility to use all the thing with efficacy... I think FLX deserves to be known and to sell more. In France there is the GRAN MA 1, 2 which is on the basic console and nobody dares to go elsewhere ... Even if it is a real gas plant ... So I think for many shows that I can see with a Gran MA that is only used 10% ... So having an even more functional FLX on one side (another post on the effects and color management) and a record always up to date and easy to access would be a great idea to go ahead and make the FLX can sell the most possible ! a good day

    interactive user manual - "Zero88 WIKI"

    Hello John and Edward I come back to my idea of fashion in jobs evolutive on the internet. (A kind of "WIKIPEDIA Zero 88") A place where you could with the community put the FLX mode of use. (This can also serve as a basis for "XL Solutions and Solutions") I could visit more quietly and I see you have an active community. One could imagine linked to this forum this base of instructions that you could create then add some active and informed members of this community to help you to evolve this notice during the updates and thus to have an effective help for the new users. So I think some of the time you spend answering on the forum could be reduced. But most of all, a lot of the questions would actually have an answer. In addition to some complicated topics or not clear enough in this leaflet, nothing prevents you from putting the links to topics on forum that you might consider as effective and useful. Thus it represents a sum of work at the beginning, but which would then be limited to the evolutions only. I also think it would be a big plus on the markerting side. Because many users users are also available to help. What do you think ? Too heavy to do? A good day to everyone Eric -- -- -- -- Bonjour John et Edward Je reviens sur mon idée de mode en emplois évolutif sur internet. (Une sorte de "WIKIPEDIA Zero 88") Un endroit ou vous pourriez avec la communauté y mettre le mode d'emplois de la FLX. (Cela peut servir aussi de base pour les "Solutions et solutions XL") j'ai pu visiter plus tranquillement et je vois que vous avez une communauté active. On pourrait imaginer lié à ce forum cette base de notice que vous pourriez créer puis ajouter quelques membres actifs et avisés de cette communauté pour vous aider à faire évoluer cette notice au fil des mises à jour et ainsi avoir une aide efficace pour les nouveaux utilisateurs. Ainsi je pense qu'une partie du temps que vous passez à répondre sur le forum pourrait être réduit. Mais que surtout une bonne partie des questions auraient de fait une réponse. De plus sur certains sujets compliqués ou pas assez claire dans cette notice, rien de vous empêche de mettre les liens vers les sujets sur forum que vous pourriez juger comme efficace et utile. Ainsi cela représente une somme de travail au debut, mais qui ensuite serait limité au seules evolutions. Je pense aussi que cela serait un gros plus du coté markerting. Car many users users are also to have a they have as a help. Qu'en pensez vous ? Trop lourd à faire ? Une bonne journée à tous Eric

    What is missing - Ce qui manque...

    Hello What is missing or which I have not yet found how to do (...): Side Effects (motions / colors / chases) - More options so that you can have presets in the additional motion options for aotomatic. Also have more possible color variations (Automatic and LED) and also chases. (Traditional and LED) In fact when one has the time to program multiple things it is not a problem. (That's what I'm sure I can do with Capture) But in case the time is lacking it is there to have a few things programmed in addition would be good. Colors: Second lack is on the side of the colors and therefore the proposed choices. - it is for projectors working in Red Green Blue White Amber. The fact that all 5 colors can not be directly taken into account in color presets makes the FLX try to make amber with RED GREEN BLUE BLUE at best ... MAis miss the real amber . And when you go on amber through the encoder wheel, and then you have to play amber and white colors to find the right tone. So I think an evolution in the future would be that the color mixer can take into account what the projector can do. And currently more and more projectors have the included RGBW + A + UV ... Preprogrammed positions: The other lack is to have some preprogrammed positions in the automatic. There is HOME. But I think having a position at 25 °, 45 °, 65 ° and 90 ° could be a plus. And then a random position that could serve as a basis for an effect. A bit like when you have ACLs running through the scene. Thus a random creation could save time instead of having to position each projector ... FLX 2 (One day can be a hardware update) The other big plus would be to have a second video port to be able to have in front of the eyes directly the window of cues on big screen and on the second screen the access to the 4 color windows, effect, etc ... Saves time and access faster to be more productive. And finally when to have an evolution of the FLX is to have more encoder wheels, as on Magic Q. And so to access directly certain settings rather than having to scroll the screen. the aspect encoder wheels additional could be included in a Wings option with small LCD screen (as on the consoles sounds from Yamaha, Berhinger, Midas and co) Notice Last lack, it is listed PDF record, with an updated version to explain all the new features that arrive over the versions. So I think it would be positive to have the opportunity to have a WEB document that can easily be transformed to update the user manual with the software of the FLX. That's with the summer coming, I will be able to study more fully the functions of the FLX and thus better know it but also started small video films to present this great product in French. thank you Eric ----- Bonjour Ce qui manque ou que je n'ai pas encore trouvé comment faire (...): Coté Effets (moouvements / couleurs / chases ) - Plus d'options afin de pouvoir avoir des préréglages dans les options de mouvements supplementaires pour les aotomatiques. Egalement avoir plus de variations de couleurs possibles (Automatiques et LED) et aussi des chases. (Traditionnel et LED) En fait quand on a le temps de programmer de multiple choses c'est un pas un soucis. (C'est ce que je vais pouvoir certainement faire avec Capture) Mais dans le cas ou le temps manque c'est là que d'avoir quelques petites choses de programmées en plus serait bien. Couleurs : Second manque c'st du coté des coleurs et donc des choix proposés. - c'est pour les projecteurs qui travaillent en Rouge vert bleu Blanc Ambre. Le fait que l'ensemble des 5 couleurs ne puissent pas directement etre prise en compte dans les préreglages de couleurs fait que la FLX essaye de faire de l'ambre avec ROUGE VERT BLEU BLANC au mieux ... MAis passe à coté du vrai ambre. Et lorsque l'on va sur l'ambre par le biais de la roue codeuse, et ensuite il faut jouer en l'ambre et le blanc couleurs pour trouver la bonne tonalité. Ainsi je pense qu'une evolution dans l'avenir serait que le melangeur de couleur puisse prendre en compte ce que le projecteur peut faire. Et actuellement de plus en plus de projecteurs ont le RGBW + A + UV d'inclus... Positions préprogrammées : L'autre manque c'est de pouvoir avoir quelques positions préprogrammés au niveau des automatiques. Il y a HOME. Mais je pense que d'avoir une position à 25°, 45°, 65° et 90° pourrait un plus. Et ensuite une position aléatoire qui pourrait servir de base à un effet. Un peu comme lorsque l'on a des ACL qui parcourent la scene. Ainsi une creation aléatoire pourrait faire gagner du temps au lieu de devoir positionner chaque projecteur... FLX 2 (Un jour peut etre une mise à jour matériel) L'autre grand plus serait d'avoir un second port video pour pouvoir avoir sous les yeux directement la fenetre des cues sur grand ecran et sur le second ecran l'acces aux 4 fenetres couleurs, effet, etc... Gains de temps et acces plus rapide pour etre plus productif. Et finalement quand à avoir une evolution de la FLX c'est avoir plus de roues encodeuses, comme sur les Magic Q. Et ainsi d'acceder directement à certain reglages plutot que de devoir faire défiler l'ecran. l'aspect roues encodeuses supplementaire pourrait etre inclus dans une option Wings avec petit ecran LCD (comme sur les consoles sons de chez Yamaha, Berhinger, Midas et cie) Dernier manque, c'est coté notice PDF, avec une version à jour pour expliquer toutes les nouvelles fonctions qui arrivent au fil des versions. Ainsi je pense qu'il serait positif d'avoir la possibilité de pouvoir avoir un document WEB qui puisse facilement se transformer pour mettre à jour la notice d'utilisation avec le logiciel de la FLX. Voilà avec l'été qui arrive, je vais pouvoir etudier plus à fond les fonctions de la FLX et ainsi pouvoir mieux la connaitre mais egalement commencé des petits films vidéos pour présenter ce super produit en Français. Merci à vous Eric

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hello This Tuesday was another show. And outside the worries of MMF buttons that are triggered from time to time all alone, (because I prefer for now keep the ON option on the movement of the fader and the setting of the button) for the rest everything works well and gives satisfaction. The small gaps are at the level: - Effects, more option in order to be able to prescribe additional movement options for the aotomatic as well as color variations (Automatic and LED) and also chases. (Traditional and LED) In fact, when you have the time to program, it's not a problem. (That's what I'll certainly be able to do with Capture) but in the case where the time is lacking it is there to have a few things programmed in addition would be good. Second lack - it is for projecteus working in Red Green Blue White Amber. The fact that all 5 colors can not be directly taken into account in color presets makes the FLX try to make amber with RED GREEN BLUE WHITE at best ... MAis misses the amber. And when you go on amber, well then you have to play amber and other colors to find the right tone. So I think an evolution in the future would be positively that the color mixer can take into account what the projector can do. And currently more and more projectors have the included RGBW + A + UV ... The other lack is to have some preprogrammed positions in the automatic. There is HOME. But I think having a position at 25 °, 45 °, 65 ° and 90 ° could be a plus. And then a random position that could serve as a basis for an effect.

FLX 2 (One day) The other big plus would be to have a second video port to be able to have in front of the eyes directly the window of the cues and on the other screen the access to the windows colors, effect, etc ... Gains of time and faster access to be more productive. And finally when having an evolution of the FLX is to have more encoder wheels, as on the Magic Q. And so to access directly certain settings rather than having to scroll the screen. Then the aspect encoding wheels and more could be included in a Wings option with small LCD screen (as on the consoles sounds from Yamaha, Berhinger, Midas and co) see you soon for other returns ... So I love FLX ! It s really a good desk !
  13. Hi Edward After turning a little bit in FLX and Mac I find the solution. So I will come back later in this topic for giving information about FLX and Mac OS Solution and helping other users. Thank for your help Eric
  14. So I Can see on FLX Notice that ArtNet window can give me access to IP adress. But on FLX Window, it s not same option that on the Manuel... I can't find how to configure IP ArtNet adress. I try to seen on Network device and there is nothing. Like I tell before on Z window I can see : On FLX Z System info DHCP: "No DHCP IP adresse" ArtNet : Device 1 Green pastille and Transmitting on IP 2.141.1.1 Net 0 Subnet 0 Universe 1, 2, 3, 4 0 Devices connected Capture ; Red Pastille Not transmitting No DHCP Adress... On Capture window Automatique (IP 169.254.1.189) I try to change IP and nothing possible DMX universes are OK and projector have Patch address with correct channels circuits. On MAC Preferences : Via DHCP  IPV4 :169.254.1.189 Subnet : 255.255.0.0
  15. So Now I find how to change on FLX the Capture IP dress... But no find how to change the Art Net IP Adress....
