FLX User Manual

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

FLX consoles ship with a "Quick Start Guide" - a 20 page manual that takes you through the major features of FLX.

 

The more in depth User Manual has been one of those projects that's just attracted delay after delay in every way possible! Whilst we finish it off and proof read it, I'm posting a draft copy of the document to help those customers who have been very patiently waiting for it.

 

FLX User Manual- 1st Draft.pdf

 

I'll take this opportunity to again thank our very valued users who are regularly active here on the forum. Not only asking questions and giving us feedback, but also replying to questions and helping each other out. That's exactly what the Zero 88 Community Forum is for, so thank you!

 

All the best,

 

Jon

If I knew how to add a dancing smiley to this post I would, but I don't, so I'll just add a big-grin one instead :D

 

Thanks for this manual Jon, I realise it's been a lot of work, but it is much appreciated by us users!

 

I didn't find a reference to the software version this version of the manual relates to - usually in Zero88 manuals this is on the first inner page.

 

Well that's my bedtime reading sorted for the next week!

 

Thanks,

Kevin

Thanks Kevin,

 

It's just a draft for now, it needs to be "Eaton-ised", be given a version number and there's a few parts missing. Once that's all done, I'll assign it to a software version.

 

However, it's been written with the new beta software in mind, so 7.8.5 even though it hasn't been released yet.

 

All the best

 

Jon

Jon - I've been asking for this for a while and it was worth the wait! Really well written and very informative.

 

One question though - the mobile apps that are mentioned...I can't seem to find them in the app store? Am I being silly?

Hi Rob,

 

We’re soon to be releasing two new iOS apps, both free, so we’ve taken the old app offline so people don’t purchase it and waste their money.
We’re testing the app through Apple’s “testflight” – I’m more than happy to add you to this if you wish, so you can try the apps before we release them.
If you’d like to, just email me the email address you use on the App store and I’ll add you.

p55 the Cue Settings screenshot shows a Cleanup... button. This isn't described that I could see.

In the Effect section it would be nice to name the units of the effect attributes like speed, size and offset.

 

Nice and much more intuitive than would be seconds or BPM as unit for speed, a size in percent and the offset as phase shift in degree - even this needs modifications in zerOS and not only in the manual.

Dear Jon Hole,

 

I see the connection between PC using Phantom ZerOS to Art-net, then my point is "Can PC control lighting fixtures via Phantom ZerOS and Art-net without Zero FLX or only can use with console?

The User Manual is published here:

Jon - would be good if you could note this in the Forum - I rarely look on the product pages, it's always the forum, so I'm still using the draft versions. I only know about the release from your follow up post on Blueroom after I'd pointed the user at the version 1 draft. The same happened the other month with 7.9 software release.

 

Thanks,

Kevin

We released ZerOS 7.9.1 on the website on Friday, along with the manual. However, we're trying to stagger the downloads - so we'll do some posts about it this week :)

Hi Jon,

 

Sure, makes sense.... but it does mean the folks who are actually helping you out with this stuff don't know the new releases exist...

 

Thanks,

Kevin

We don't generally update manuals every software release, only when there are significant changes. Release Notes are used to document the smaller changes.

 

The latest FLX manual is ZerOS 7.9.1, and there aren't any major new features for FLX in ZerOS 7.9.2.
