  1. dont forget that with the indexing function on rotating gobo's that they often also use the gobo rotation channel to set the index. Robe's Scan range - Click me to get a list of scan's, and their dmx attribute list
  2. It wasnt my intention to question competency; more to highlight school kids who have only known one desk tend to have an affinity with that desk that they learnt on; whereas someone coming from a different background will not necessarily be able to transfer as easily.
  3. fair enough; I honestly didn't realise that the series has been discontinued.
  4. it would probably help if you included some examples of what you are confused by, and what you are looking to do. Sadly if you make throw-away comments about schoolboys, half of essex is going to come and duck you in a duck-like fashion. Seriously though - it is a pretty simple interface to use for generic programming. Set faders, select memory/sub, press program. My only gripe is that it is a bit too easy to clear a memory/sub out. although I am surprised you don't get on with a frog. Granted the memory recording section in the manual is next to useless, and was probably written by someone who was dropped from a great height as a small child. Half the terms are not covered, nor are their effects, nor how they could be manipulated (with examples) to achieve a desired look, or a potential look. Oh, and stop bashing the original poster, it's unkind to our foreign neighbours
  5. thanks for the info, I shall check the S / F paramaters, I have a feeling that overlooking this will probably be the cause of a few issues. on a side note: It seems like zero88 are just pushing for the frog 2 to be purchased rather than satisfy current customers :/
  6. ola, I'm looking for some help with the movers I am using. I am really hoping that the desk supports some feature like undo, or release for moving lights - ie: once I have moved/changed a position - releasing fixtures doesn't seem particularly straight-forward. I used home in conjunction with palette, but that clears, rather than undoes/removes changes. Briefly: if I moved a mover from dark blue/triangle gobo to pink, home-colour sends my colour data to open, rather than back to dark blue.. This may not be so much of an issue with a colour wheel, but programming in partial mode, it means I have to find the cue where I changed colour, then individually go on every cue back to the one I am editing to get that colour back.I am sure there must be a short cut, but the manual is unclear and there is no index that can help me there. Also, is there a goto feature that I am missing that will let me load a specific look (with movers) it seems when I go to a specific cue with the + / - and < > keys, I get the programmed values for that cue, rather than the global output; which seems nonsensical to me - and also means that moving lights are then typically in the wrong place. I'm a bit surprised there isn't a condensed moving light help section here as well; the majority of posts here requesting help are mover related, and more in-depth instructions for using movers in the manual.Is there any plan to bring out auto-generated palettes at all? stuff like: gobos/generic colours in cmy or colour wheel positions/beam shapes/simple prism positions ? Even being able to load 1 fixture type with these would save time programming! Is there any way for the programmer, or whatever the un-stored unrecorded values are in the desk to take precedence over what is recorded? For instance: going through a moving light cue, and a mover is up that shouldnt be: I need to edit the cue, then fade the mover out, then re-record the edited cue, rather than just fade out the mover on the desk. I can see this being problematic if I need to reset a mover mid-show, and I won't be able to stop it fading up, and gobo/prism/colour changing into position as I cannot take control of the dimmer ( although I guess I could close the strobe/mechanical dimmer, it seems like a massive back door to a simple problem) editing memories: is there a function to enable keyboard entry? I tried multiple times to use the keyboard, but the only functions that worked were the arrow keys Lastly, what is the fade time that affects pan and tilt? I have tried htp fade in and out, as well as ltp, and the pan/tilt fade times on my movers (tw-1s and mac 700s) consistently move in < 3 seconds. Does it take the value when programmed as a constant value, or can I change this? Thanks in advance for any help, I know there are a lot of questions here~~ ok, some more trolling revealed that goto is quickest via an external keyboard still this doesnt put my movers in their global value, just the cue one.
