Movers not crossfading on cues

Recommended Posts



Just started to plot a school show ready for tomorrow's opening night (Mon 6th July) and when we add movers into a couple of cues they won't crossfade properly, generics are operating normally. Movers are Martin Mac 250 Entour (extended).


Here's whats happening:


Q1 - one entour on

Q2 - next entour on (previous out)
Fade times both at 3.0 (up and down)
When pressing go, the second cue loaded THEN the first cue faded out.
That's how it physically looked. But on the outputs window it was apparently cross fading...!
Using Leap Frog 48 with V7.8.0
Does anyone have any ideas what's happening please?

Is it doing this with all of your movers? Can you try them on their own. So unplug all other dmx units and see what happens. I have had slow responce times in the past and it turned out i had a bad dmx cable. Failing that try changing the dmx address of the movers.

Is the overall fade time (from the second one starting to fade up until the first one is completely off) around 3 seconds, or around 6 seconds? (try running the cue and timing it).
