  1. Hi, i want to put my movers brightness onto channels, just for ease. is there any way of writting the fixture data so that you can have brightness on say, channel 24.

     

    I remember someone mentioning it a while ago.

    and i guess i will have to write a new fixture file for each fixture!!

     

    Cheers, Mike


  2. The Mambo Frog has 1024 channels, and can control 96 intelligent fixtures.

    Along side the conventional memory stack and fader-based submasters, the Mambo Frog provides a bank of 48 ‘SX’ playbacks.

     

    i think the mambo was the last in the frog series!!

    This is before the frog 2 of course!


  3. hi, there are a couple of options i can think of:

     

    you could you the manual Bass option, start off at the set speed, then during the song tap the step button twice(quickly).

    and then tap the speed back after the fast bit has finished?

     

    or you can use different memorys/sub's.

    one as the normal chase one as the fast chase and then 'back to the level you want'

     

    or if its generics, do it the old fashioned way with the flash buttons!! :lol:

     

     

    Edit: its a slow Keyboard!!


  4. Press the Wheel Group button again to display the next three movement effect parameters (Offset, Rotation, Speed)

     

    what does the rotation do? does it rotate the fixture more? not sure as i have never had to use this!

     

    i use the fx very often but the only thing i find with them is that when your running a saved fx and then go into another fx, it always jerks back to the start position. no matter how much LTP you put on?


  5. What also is possible that you come accidentally along your reset value. If that for example 100 is, and your fade of 80 to 200 then zul you come automatic and resetten your heads. Beetje of strange heads on which that this way programmed would be, but well; it would be possible. If you have really taken that step with the hand you must indeed even such as Pipo say the step obtain.

     

    Well, if that doesn't sound dodgy!! 8O


  6. hi there, is the shutter in brightness or is it set in beamshape?

    If it is in beamshape you can do 1 of 2 things.

     

    you can use another sub to shut the shutter

     

    you can create a fixture file that has the shutter on brightness.

     

    if you set a slow ltp of 5sec on beamshape and have the rest set to snap, this may make the fixture set before the shutter opens, but if you put the shutter onto brightness you will be able to trigger the position, colour and beamshape without any light coming out of the fixture.

     

    i do not know the fixture you are talking about but i would asume that the above info is correct for it.

     

    if you would like a fixture file made im sure if you posted the dmx protocal somone would make you one. i would but am going to be away from my computer for the next couple of days.

     

    long winded post, sorry :?


  7. go into super user and then desk setup. then assign fixtures

    when you are in the assign fixtures menu, find martin on the list(may need the floppy disk) and then find mac 250+. there should then be 4 more mac 250 +, each with modes 1 - 4 after them. choose your desired mode.

     

    so you will have to load a new fixture in, and then go down to patch functions and redo your dmx addresses.


  8. right, got a show on friday. started programming for it today and put the first chase in. using 4 minimacs in mode 4. 2 steps. quite slow beetween steps. using a fat frog.

     

    i have programmed it to memory, has 0 fade time 0 ltp time and 0 dwell time

    the problem is that when i cue from the last memory,it moves to position 1 but then takes 11 secs to start to move to position 2. once it has started it is fine it is just the long pause before.

     

    i put a few more chases in and its the same with every chase!?!? :(

     

    Thanks
