Different fixtures update to stored memories

Recommended Posts

I recently ran into this headache. We are now doing shows in this particular venue regularly now. I have a Fat Frog and use 6 Mac 250+s for my shows. This theatre that we are now doing some shows at has Mac 600s so I don't use my 250+s. I was really really hoping I could just go in and assign the new fixtures and then update all the palettes and then the board would update all my memories with the new 600s. I was wrong!! All the memories when gone to where all empty from fixtures. I had to go in all my memories and edit them totally. That is alot of editing! I called tech support and they said that different lights have all the different protocols and dmx patches and so forth. I understand this. But there should be a way to store all these new numbers patches into the palette. If you store a color palette with blue with the 250s, then go in and store that same palette with blue with the 600s I think your memories if programmed to be blue from that palette SHOULD be blue, lol. I know you computer programmers can figure out how to do this so I am keeping my fingers crossed., Anybody else run into this problem?

Well I can tell you this....when you create a colour pallete for the 250 which triggers the blue colour at lets say a DMX value of 20 then if you call this pallete again on a different fixture you might get a different colour because different fixtures sometimes have different colours at that value ... so .. bad luck... you have to program your palletes again for different fixture...

"Fixture Cloning" actually has a fair bit of complexity behind it once you start getting into the details. It's not something we currently envisage supporting on the Frog series, however it is on the list for Frog2.

I doubt I will be running into this problem alot anyway. This was the first and only time so far. But it took me two days of programming to get where I like to be for my show. I had to do a show the first night and got all the palettes programmed but not my memories edited. So I just did the whole show with stagnet looks along with there conventionals. Except for the fast songs of course. Then I moved the heads around, lol. But all that programming is not going to waste. We go there for 8 days straight next weekend. So I will have plenty of time to fine tune everything. Thanks again!!
