Dark between cues

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have many cues with 4 Robin Robe (different positions, effects, focuses, ...)

I would like to have a "dark state" during transitions between these cues in a playback, i think it should be the job of  the "move on dark" (or something else...) option but i don't know how to manage it .

Any idea ?

The "old style" approach before desks had MOD functionality is to have a "mark" cue (usually a point-5 cue number) between existing cues, to reposition the fixture. For MOD to work on ZerOS, the fixture needs to have a programmed intensity=0 in a cue in which the move will happen.

Sorry, i was wrong, nothing to do with the "MOD" option. I've read the page 75 of the manual and i understand now what it means .

I just want to have a full black between cues, i don't want the intensity to raise, i want CUE1(position, effect, intensity level x) then BLACK before CUE2(position,effect,intensity level x).

I just want to see my moving heads moving from CUE1 to CUE2 in dark an then... FULL CUE2

Is it possible, or do i need to record cues with the intensity appart ?

Hello,

This would be something the fixture would have to manage. Some fixtures have the ability to be told to be dark whilst moving. I believe most Robin fixtures have this functionality, you would have to check in their Function/Control parameter.

If they don't, then you will have to insert a cue between 1 and 2 with the fixture off, that allows for Move On Dark to prep them for you. You can then automate cue 2 if you wish, so that it automatically follows on once they are in position.

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

Okay, so it's about the device's functionality...

I will have a look at the manual if the ROBE Robin600e is doing the job or not

Thanks for all
