Help! How do i have a chase going with generic lights static

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I got a Fat Frog this week, literaly. My GCSE Drama Exam is Next Tuesday, of which i am doing lighting as my option so my GCSE depends on this!!


I am sort off getting used to the Frog's interface but i cant get my head round this problem.


I have a scene, which is set in a club. The actors dont move much, so i can have particular spots or general cover on them but seeing as its a club i thought it would be cool to have a few colours rotating in the background?

So i would have the stage permenantly lit, but with maybe 3 different generic laterns cylcing through a few colors extremly slowly. I have made a chase on the desk that works great, except the only problem is how do i get this to work with my other cues?


If i put it on a submaster it seems to loose its accuracy of speed, and i would rather have it intergrated with the show. Is there anyway i could add it onto a cue like a layer or something? or possibley have the chase trigger at the same time as the cue?


Sorry if this seems kinda stupid, just trying 2 get 2 grips.

I guess it depends mainly if you want live control of the chase or not. and how you wish to integrate it into the rest of your show .


If you want to start it, stop it or adjust the modifiers live then putting it onto a submaster is probably the best idea. Create a chase memory outside your normal memory stack and transfer it onto a submaster. It's speed, or indeed any of the other chase modifiers should not change while the chase is running unless you change any of the modifiers live on the desk.

Put it on the submaster as you are doing and then simply adjust the speed with the speed pot to get it accurate. I am surprised that it is not the same speed as when you programmed it. Check that you have not moved the speed pot by mistake.
