  1. yes it will be good to have the possibility to have a Mac compatible software.... wish that Catalyst will go ahead... Take care
  2. OK I will try it and coming back if I ve problems or questions... Thank
  3. Hello, I'm not sure I understood the way to do that. I'm going this weekend, take the FLX (which I just received) and see a little how to do this concretely. In fact having the FLX + 2 wings, in general I use the 72 MFF faders in chanel mode. To have access to all my projectors. But if I understand a little things, to use a "fader control," I have to be in the playback mode on the side of my MFF fader. That is, at least one wing? Is this? merci pour votre aide
  4. Hello, Thanks a lot Edward, I think this is something that will indeed help me. Question Is it when I record "record home", press at the same time on "Shift" will deactivate SmartTag? (like I do for cues recording ...) Thanks for the help ! Eric
  5. Hello, Question about "default configuration" So I see in this option that you can configure "intensity, beam, color, position and effect", for having a different setting. Imagine that for my moving head position at at central position (50% pan and tilt) that in fact on stage not exactly in the right position. Can I use this default option for example having in "central position", the real central position on stage? In fact, having this option for the right position that I want ? thank for your help Eric VDA
  6. Hello, After reading this, I have question or rather need a clarification on the option "fader control" If I understood correctly this option allows to have a specific control on an element (color, position, etc ...) Concretely, how is it? I have on one side MMF Fader in channel mode that control the different projectors (Leds, traditional and moving head) on the other side I have my master fader that records and reads the cues. How do I proceed? I imagine on MMF 24 in channel mode a moving head (with all the parameters accessible with color, beam, effect, move ...) How to activate control fader for example on just the pan? Thanks for your help ? eric
  7. Hello thank you for your reply. Just a reminder... 1 / for the concerns of dropout, it usually happens often after a certain number of hours or the console is turned on. (8 to 10h ...) I had trouble in many places (this excluded a problem specific to a place and specific matérial ...) In most cases, the problems are on traditional equipment. Drop out half second... Just enough to be see. But at the last show it started on 1 Spot Led. (Loss of pan / tilt half second then return to the correct position) 2 / For ghost button concerns, this may not be done for several days, then suddenly do it multiple times on the same working session. Again this is not peculiar to a place. Which still exclude something outside the console. (Like problem on electric alimentation) Thank you for your answer, I am so reassured ... See you soon Eric
  8. Hello, I sent some mails (Keith Rogers, Edward Smith...) to know where was my console FLX, that I sent at the end of July in repair? To know if it was and to have a idea of return time ... But I have no answers .... Thanks for your help Eric
  9. thank a lot Kevin. I will buy a Mouse and see what I feel with. Take care Eric
  10. Thanks a lot for your answers. It is interesting to see where our community of users is. ----------------------------- For my part I move from one place to another. Using PAR Led, Moving Light and Traditional. 1 or 2 DMX universe for instances. In theaters and Performance place. 400 to 5000 people. Use rather with the Master Playback for effects that follow each other. Use with Capture 2018. (will update to 2019) Am with the FLX, + 2 wings and touchscreen. (would like to use iPhone or iPad for having control on stage... But I ve always problem with IP configuration....) I hate to go to 7.9.5 to see the improvements side effects. But for safety I prefer to stay on 7.9.4 until my last shows in July. Because here I start having good automatisms on the FLX and on a fast encoding ... Even if I could evoke some problems on this console, I like it a lot. But I look forward to working with her this summer during my vacation with Capture to take things further on the possibilities it offers. Thank you again for your contributions. Eric VDA
  11. Hello Kevin Off topic Can you tell me more about what you use with your FLX ... Mouse and keyboard ? External Touchscreen ? What more practical use do you have with the mouse ? Do you use several wings with your FLX? Do you use a USB HUB if you have several things connected to the USB ports of your FLX? thank you for your help Eric
  12. Hello, To speak about the quality of good equipment from Zero Before having the FLX, I had a show to do with traditional projectors, ParLed and Wash Moving Light. So I was on LanBox on Mac. there was a crash of the Lanbox 5 hours before the premiere. Can not restart. Then in the theater there was a jester 24/48. So a lot of DMX circuits and only 48 faders. So I took a blank page to see how to group things together and get everything in with the 48 faders And thanks to the DMX patch of the Jester which allows to allocate the 512 DMX circuits as you want on the Faders, I was able to group colors, intensity control and make that I can control the TILT and PAN of the wash . So my other chance was that the choreographer wanted only hot or cold and no colors. (Only white, Amber and blue were my 3 colors on the PARLEDs and moving light) So I was able to reconstruct the whole show and save it thanks to Jester 24/48. 1 circuit controlled all the general intensities. And I played on white, amber and blue by groups of projectors. I was able to rebuild front and back areas as well as right to left. Grouping the traditional ground right and left, and it was a beautiful show. What is just a pity is that this simple console is no longer for sale, because for small theater with traditionnel projectors and just few LED, it is a serious construction and especially more logical in use by report to Botex, Stairville, Berhinger and all the small consoles found on the right or on the left. And I'm very happy to have been able to buy a Jester 24/48 just before its end! Because it serves me as console auxilaire. I put on it the traditional projectors that I want to be able to access live. I always have a spare kit, side projectors and face in case of crash of the main console. It also serves me for the fog machine, stroboscopes and other small machines in the genre. Thank you Zero 88
  13. Hello Thank you for your answers. In fact last 4 shows at the level of effects and memories to zero. (Only one show uses the previous implementation because spotlighting projectors are identical ...) So if 7.9.5 is different mainly in terms of effects it is not for me embarrassing. What worries me the most is that my different versions are non-software but hardware as evoked in another post or mail ... And so, that's what we did, these are the ones that were mounted on the screen and on the scene without moving the fader, or the micro interruptions of current in the traditional projectors that I had time in time this last WE. The worry is that all this is random. Sometimes nothing for 2 or 3 hours and then suddenly it comes and repeats several times. That is to say that even send in service after sale, I do not know if all this will be seen like that ... In any case thank you for your help and I'm still thinking about this or not staying on 7.9.4 ... or 7.9.5 ..... See you soon Eric
  14. And just a question if I doing Update... Fixture will be delete too ? Or fixture that I ask and have installing on FLX must be install again ? Thank a lot Eric VDA
