    Few questions on FLX

    Hi Edward, I already expected something like this. But is there a maximum resolution the FLX does support? I don't think I can connect a 4K monitor or something like this. I think at some point it would be just down-scaled? Martin

    Few questions on FLX

    Thanks Edward, I am glad to hear that something like this is "on the road". The option using an UDK on latch and an inhibitive fader sounds also reasonable, but I think doesn't prevent recording house lights when they are supposed to be on, but not to be recorded. Another question, and totally unrelated to the others, which I mentioned already in another thread: What is the maximum supported screen resolution for the FLX? I am looking for a touch monitor to buy and don't want to "overshoot". Thanks for your help, Martin

    Few questions on FLX

    Hi, it's me again, to follow up today's premiere performance, all went quite well, but a common problem reappeared. Please add this an feature request: Make Submasters or Playbacks to be not recordable in the main cue stack. Somehow the 'Inhibitive' or 'Park' solution does not work out for me, unless maybe someone creates a macro which can do this. I tried, but somehow failed doing it... @Edward: Thanks for your instructions for removing fixtures from a cue. This worked out really well. Thanks, Martin

    Few questions on FLX

    OK, understood. Can you please tell me how to remove a fixture completely from a cue in live mode? I didn't really get the hang of it. Thanks, Martin

    And another question in advance, somehow related to the previous one: Is it possible to delete a fixture's intensity information from a cue in blind mode? Thanks, Martin

    Few questions on FLX

    Oops I did it again... Programmed house lights into a cue... Not that I have been doing this before, but this time it was tricky. In a break, when the houselights were switched on using two Submasters, I changed a scene (working light on stage) in Playback 0 using update cue. Of course the houselights were recorded too, but I didn't notice because they were supposed to be on. After the break I continued to the next scene, but the houselights kept tracking and staying on because they were on in the last scene. Turning the lights off in the scene before didn't change the tracking behaviour. It seems when it's tracking, it's tracking regardless if you change something before. How am I supposed to turn the lights back off in such a case? I could turn them off using the programmer and not touching it until until the end of the play. If I had to change something else using the programmer, what could I do in such a case? Martin

    Few questions on FLX

    Hi Edward, thanks for your quick reply, I already knew the SHIFT + (Z) shortcut for blind mode. I hoped there was something comparable for preview mode. The next time I will be on the console I will try your suggestion for recording a blank cue using the tips you gave me. Unfortunately today I had to do this while another live cue was active. I am not always focused to the screen to see which options are there. Used to an old strand console where you did not have an 'interactive' screen at all. But I had the same problems with it. You say "no information will be stored in the cue". Does this mean 'all zero' or 'no change'? At the moment I am talking all about intensity values. Thanks so far, Martin

    Few questions on FLX

    Hi again, today I had my first serious rehearsal using our new FLX. In general I have to say that the handling and doing changes to the lighting on the fly was very convenient and intuitive. On the other side I came up with some questions I want to ask here: - I found myself very often changing between Live, Preview and Blind mode to do stuff either online or offline or checking what the next scene would be. Is there a way to change between these modes without using touchscreen or mouse? I would like to use the keys to do this. - In blind mode (or any other), is it possible to create a new 'blank' cue with a certain cue number? For example, I know I want to have a blackout at cue 26, which doesn't exist yet. It it possible to create it without disturbing the running cues? So far and and a few rehearsals to go... I might add some new questions here. Regards, Martin

    glad I could help...

    Fixture library

    Hi Steve, for 4 and 6 channel mode you should be able to use the built-in generic fixtures. Generic Fixtures - LED Unit 4ch (RGB W) or 6ch (D RGB W A) whereas amber would work as your strobe channel. Martin

    Adjusting External Monitor Resolution

    Just to add my question here: What is the maximum supported screen resolution for the FLX? I am looking for a touch monitor to buy and don't want to "overshoot". Thanks, Martin

    Do you want to make the changes "blind" or "live"? In a theater environment and during rehearsals I assume live. After doing your changes you can just press UPD and GO to have the current cue updated with the new state. Don't forget to clear your programmer afterwards 🙂 Martin

    Hi Jon, actually I just want to see which cue I'm in, and maybe the next/previous one. Having the functionality in Z Remote would also be fine. Thanks for your efforts, Martin

    Hi, why not tell my wishes right now, as its maybe easier to implement in an earlier stage. The problem in our house is that we dont have a FOH lighting place. We do it from behind the scenes using a monitor to see whats going on on the stage. This is ok for playback, but for rehearsals I like to be in front of the stage to see what the lighting actually looks like. For now what I found out, I would have to use Z Monitor on a tablet to have the cue list in front of me, and on the other hand running Z Remote on my mobile to have a go/pause/back button. Would it be possible to implement a page in Z Monitor, where you have a cue list and the mentioned go/pause/back buttons. Then using only one device would make rehearsals much easier. Thanks, Martin

    Hi, just to confirm: The beta version works as expected. I may have wishes for some additional functions, but I will come back to this after the season. Thanks so far, Martin
