  1. Thanks, I was interested as I want to run Phantom and Capture on the same machine, but using Parallels for Windows may slow things down rather a bit on a laptop. PC it is then for a while Regards, Nigel
  2. Just wondered if PhantomZerOS is platform dependent or can it work on a MAC as well?
  3. Brilliant, there is still time before the show to do this so thanks a million, I'll get on with it tonight. Nigel
  4. Hi Everyone and Edward of course. I have created a single Playback for a commonly used lighting state. I now need to update the main playback cue with slightly different intensity values. Is there a way of updating the cues that stem from this playback globally so that I only have to do it once for all the dependent cues in the cue stack? Thanks Nigel
  5. Thanks Edwards, the file was sent very quickly and it works fine. I now need to ask another question about cue updating but will start a new thread for that Cheers Nigel
  6. Thanks Edward, that worked. I'm not such a dummy as I thought I was! Really helpful and the effect worked a treat. Nigel
  7. Sorry guys but I'm new to the FLX S24. Lovely desk but I want to add a new 'Chinese made fixture' and there is no hint of a name that seems available in the library. The only details I have are from the very inadequate manual, photo of the channel assignment attached. Can anyone help!
  8. Just a quick question from a newby on the FLX S24. I need to be able to raise the UV channel separately from all the others. There is a very good Knowledge base article about colour mixing RGB but I need to know if the same process works for all 6 channels. I presume it does, but I'm not able to try it until we get into rehearsals and dress so time is very limited if I have to do something else.. Thanks to anyone who can allay my fears! Nigel
  9. Hi. Just upgraded to a FLX s24.  Lovely desk but manual can leave you out in the cold occasionally. 

    Just putting together a chase and need to alter one step, and for the life of me I cannot find anything where I can see each step so delete or modify the step in question.  Is this possible or do I have to redo the chase?

    Also, would it be easier to record all the steps in a playback, then convert them into a chase, and if so How?

      Hi Nigel. Not sure if you just posted me privately rather than on the forum direct. 

      A chase would be a series of cues in a playback so you’d edit a step in the same was you’d edit a normal cue. You might find shift+go useful to get into that step (cue) without the desk moving to the next then you can edit it. 

      Yes agree the documentation is weak, we’ve been complaining about this for quite a while...

      regards, Kevin

      Thanks Kevin.  Actually I'm not sure if it went out to the forum either, my fist time using this forum and not sure yet how to drive it. 

      Thanks for you help, much appreciated and Shift Go works a treat.  Would be good if there was  list of these shortcuts, although there may be one that I have not yet found.



  10. Thanks so much Kevin, I have now changed the battery and updated the desk to the latest op system, and of course totally cleared the fixture library so I have had another go at building a new library and assigning the fixtures, successfully I might add! Foxed me for a while as the new LEDJ HEX configuration changed from using the wheel group but I accidentally found that a double press on the colour button selected the other colours. The dimmers work on all channels and Brightness on the fixtures and they also recognise the Grand Master. So thanks a million for your tips, i can now record a set of cues into the cue stack so I'm more confident about the next outing, Goodnight Mr. Tom. (164 lighting cues and all in a village hall!!!!) One minor issue is that there seems to be a noisy fan somewhere, but when I had the desk open for the battery change, I could not locate one. I have checked the FDD but that seems fine. Any ideas? If I hit any more problems, I will ask for your help again if you don't mind. Thanks again. Nigel
  11. I'm a newbie to the Fat frog. Sorry about this but I am up against a steep learning curve with a big show coming over the horizon fast! My problem is with LED fixtures. I can get the normal channels 1 to 48 working fine, but how do you get a LED fixture starting at DMX 49 into the memory stack and how do you get a virtual intensity set up and working for it? I have just downloaded fixture library 36 and loaded and assigned the LEDJ Performer 18 Hex - 6 Channel and Performer 18 RGBWA - 5 channel fixtures (4 of each) since these are the normal ones I use. They work fine on the wheels, however, as with the other post, I can't get them to dim. I'm about to upgrade the OS to 10.12, but I still have no idea what to do about a virtual fader, or how to link the fixtures into the faders. Nor can I find any information or tutorials on this problem. Any help would be very much appreciated. Nigel
