  1. Hi, I've tried and succeeded to connect our FLX to a ENTTEC Datagate MK2 yesterday. However, if I disconnect the FLX from the network switch (physically) to test how the whole system performs in case of errors, I noticed that I have to restart the FLX to get the sACN working again. I'm not sure if it's a bug, but is there any possibility to get sACN (havn't tested Art-Net) working after a network reconnect automatically? When I disconnect and reconnect the Datagate from the network switch while the FLX stays connected to the switch, everything is working correctly after the reconn
  2. I almost expected this, however i wanted to give you that hint. Maybe you have a chance to get a used one (or a LeapFrog).
  3. Hi Klaus, the five fixtures spare could hardly be enough if you're planning to add moving lights in the future. On the other side, you're not using the 24 dimmer channels from the Jester ML24. For that reason have a look on the Solution as well. Here you're able to control your LED fixtures like generic dimmers with additional colour parameters. additionally you're not as limited in the number of fixtures as you are with the JesterML. Redards Jan PS: Du kannst hier auch auf Deutsch schreiben, wenn es dir leichter fällt. // You could write german as well if it's easier for you.
  4. Thanks OllieB for your post! I'd like to add another tought to it: Why don't let the users do the calibration for the fixtures they use, and provide a simple possibility to give it back to the community, improving the library? This way Zero88's staff a) do not have to calibrate every fixture, even those that are never or seldom used have a lower workload.
  5. I'm sorry, I hadn't the time to read through it, so I had just taken a short look into the paper. What you'd like to say is that the differences with amber are bigger than those with red, green and blue? It would be very interesting how other console manufactures solved the problem, because there are a few with support for amber (or even more colours) in the picker. One more question on my list for the PLS fair in Frankfurt
  6. Hi Jon, thanks for your answer. My impression is, you're approaching a very perfect solution. I really like people seeking for the perfect solution... But maybe you're making things too difficult for yourself: RGBA/RGBAW only applies for LED fixtures, doesn't it? All discharge lamps are combined with subtractive colour mixing (CMY). Supporting RGB fixtures you currently have the same problems: What frequency does the red/green/blue LED emitter have? How long are they in use? Are there any differences in colour between the different fixture types or batches from the same fixtur
  7. Hi Jon, I knew that a few other consoles on the market (different manufacturer) are able to "translate" RGB values from the picker (or those related to a color from LEE, Rosco, etc) to RGBA, RGBW, RGBAW or even ETC's color mixing with seven different LED emitters. Do you have a feature like this on the roadmap?
  8. Thanks Jon, that's perfect
  9. Related to this: When I load my old showfile after the update or reset, are fixture profiles used in my show (not part of the standard library) restored with it or is it necessary to do this manually before loading the old show?
  10. Hi Kevin, I have the same problems and experience with the effect engine, your reply is very helpful, because I havn't got the time to work through the manual and the tips here and try everything out. Now I could assume that it is not my fault. Yes - and I hope it does not took ages. But I knew it's not a simple task and should be done carefully. Jan
  11. Thanks for your response, Jon. I was afraid my post could have annoyed you - now I'm glad it hasn't. I've written a lot about this, maybe it was to much for somebody to read and participate. To be honest I hadn't the impression you (and the zero88 team) has realized that there is strong need to rework the effect engine before your reply. Therefore this are very good news. I'm looking forward to get a more detailed impression on your vision. You have an abstract of my wishes and ideas in my post above. Of course I could write even more, but in my opinion this doesn't make muc
  12. Hello everybody! by reading the forum from time to time, I got the impression that a couple of users are not familiar or 100% satisfied with the effect engine of zerOS. Maybe I'm wrong with my impression (let me know), but I would like to take this occasion to talk with the other FLX users (or other zerOS-consoles) about possible improvements. The current effect engine has a scientific approach in the sense of how it works. Mainly it is based on mathematical functions to chance fixture parameters. This makes it flexible and powerful. On the other hand, this seems to be less user-friendly
  13. As far as i know, MagicQ supports all popular operating systems. It's available for mac here https://secure.chamsys.co.uk/download Just to be mentioned: all zero88 desks support saving shows to and loading shows from USB, and a offline software for PC is also available.
  14. Hi Jon, do you intend to include pixel mapping within the first zerOS 8 release or is it lower priority and therefore included in a later release?

    Hmmm. Now, I'm not sure at all if there is a Solo option for the UDKs. The playbacks have one. As a workaround you could use a playback instead.
