Quick Fixture Disable

Recommended Posts

Hi,

this is something to think twice - I doubt myself as I read the "Super Users while show is running" post. Yesterday at the beginning of Dirk Busch 2005 Tour I was totally anguish becouse some QuromaQ Scroller pegged out while the show was running. They made a horrible noise when scrolling. There was no way to fix this problem but taking the power of them.

 

My Idea is to have a "quick fixture disable" function.

Would this be similar to the 'Park' function on the Frog 2:

 

When a fixture is parked it's current output values will be frozen, and cannot be adjusted by any method, until the fixture is unparked by the user.

That could be your new use for the F4 button, Fatfrog users will just have to do without the Park function :)

Seeing as the Fat frog is the best selling desk in the Frog range I think it would be unwise to leave it off that particular desk :D

HA!!! I knew that my suggestion regarding Desk Setup Menu could be useful one day ;-P (just kidding*g*)

 

P.S.: I think here is missing a smiley which sticks his tongue out. *hehe*

I guess you didn't have the opportunity to pop out the DMX, go into Desk Setup and unpatch the bad scroller, then pop the DMX back in?

Sorry Paul,

the show must go on :mrgreen:

 

I often use houselighting system with a demux and my demux didn´t have DMX hold function. so when i pop out the DMX the stage gets dark immediately. Not fun if artist are playing.
