Edit home

Recommended Posts

don't know if it's mentioned before.

It would be great to change the home parameters for position so you could use the effects easily when the heads are in the front.

if you use it now half the time the beam is behind the stage.

Thinking of that... it would be a rather cool feature if pallet 1 became the "HOME" pallet.

Programming pallet 1 would overwrite the fixtures HOME parameters. Okay that won't work for brightness, too bad. Leaving pallet 1 unprogrammed would not change the home parameters and use default, fixturetype programmed values.

 

I noticed I always program the HOME values at pallet 1, so it wouldn't change my way of programming :D

 

And for the operators unwilling to sacrifice a pallet for such a function, add a superuser option "overwrite default HOME" with yes/no as options... done deal!

If you're willing to sacrifice a palette for this function, why would you care whether it was on the 'Palette1' button or the 'Home' button? It doesn't add anything.

 

Like ice suggests, the best solution is to program Palette1 with the Home values, and then edit Palette1 as required.

hmmm, this was strange. first someone says you can edit the home values on the desk, and then in the end K-nine says it is for review..

Is it possible or not ??

You cannot currently edit the home (default) values for fixture parameters or any of the other fixture profile data on the frog desk itself.

 

To edit a fixture profile requires the Fixture Type Editor.

Hmmm that's true, but you can reach HOME with only one press, starting a pallet takes two (hands). But I can manage using the first pallet.

You could always program your amended 'home' position palette as number 24 (or 48 on a bull frog or mambo frog) ... then it would be much closer :D
