Locked Pallets; "homing" a selected fixture?

Recommended Posts

Last week I was working with a band from the Netherlands (Di-Rect) and they we're using a Jands desk for operating. I saw a really cool feature which could be a real hit if you implement it into the frog desks.

The lighttech. had some pallets (or the Jands-equivalent) for his programs. Of course he was editing them before the show to make 'em right. He could do this by selecting a pallet in some kind of edit-mode, and the fixture selected would home in color and beamshape parameters, making it really easy to locate the fixture and program the right position.

When the next update will provide a pallet-lock option, maybe another button in that mode would represet "pallet edit" and this function would become reality?

I don't think it's a load of programming work, and it would be really cool. Give it a thought!

You can home just one attribute (colour, beamshape or position) of the selected fixtures, by holding down the colour, beamshape or position button, then pressing 'home'. This should help when editing palettes.

Of course, but it won't restore it's original value when I select another fixture, that means a lot of work. This maybe a really specific function, and it isn't really nescessary, but would be very clever when the brightness pallets aren't going to be used for something else.
