Moving head with a mind of it's own

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

We have a set-up which includes 2 identical iSolution iMove 250S fixtures. For cue#1, we have them pointing in the same direction, for que#2 I want them both to move approximately 10 degrees to the right. I program both cues, but when I hit GO to transform from cue#1 to cue#2, the left fixture moved nicely 10 degrees to the right, however, the right hand fixture moves 350 degrees to the left, ending up in the correct position, but causing a beam of light to travel across the audience.

What could case this, and more importantly what can I do to correct t?

Regards,

Philip Dixon

Hi Philip,

The cause of this is the way it has been programmed. The fixture that is causing problems must have been panned the long way round to get to the desired position.

There are many ways to solve this issue. Personally, I would go into cue 1, select my fixtures, and move them both so that they are in the position I want, moving them in the shortest path possible. Then, record this position as a position palette. To do this tap RECORD -> POSITION -> Choose an MFK to record to. It's always a good idea to record palettes for pretty much everything you're doing, so that if you need to update the position you can simply update a single palette. It also makes it easier to recall certain positions. On Solution consoles you have the ability to record 400 position palettes, so you don't need to worry about running out in a hurry. 

Now, double tap CLEAR, and go into cue 2 in your cue stack - your mover will again fly all the way round the wrong direction. Select both fixtures, and apply the palette you just programmed. You should find one fixture barely moves, and the other swings back round to the correct position. Then tap UPDATE, and tap the playback's button to update the cue. 

Hope this helps, if you have any queries just let me know.

Edward
