Mac 250+ head defaulting to home position after every que

Recommended Posts

Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I am in the process of plotting the lighting for a concert as you can imagine there are a fair few lighting ques to plot.  Whilst plotting my Martin 250s keep defaulting back to the home position ( open white no gobo pointing straight down) as soon as they fade to black.  This is driving me insane as normally I fade them and move them to the next position and gobo etc.. .

They have been working fine before not sure if I have changed a setting or so thing is latched.

 

I am using the Leap Frog with the latest release of the ZEROS Software 

 

Any  help will be greatly appreciated 

Thanks

Phil

Hi Phil,

Are you programming all of the lighting states into a single Playback and using the GO button to advance between them? Or are you programming single lighting states onto multiple playbacks? If you lower a playback fader, the MAC 250s will be “released”, meaning they’ll go to their defaults, which are pointing straight down, no gobo, no colour. To stop this happening, hold SETUP and tap your playback’s button. In the Playback Settings, press Raise & Lower, and disabled Release on Lower. 

If programming multiple cues into a single playback, the MAC 250s should be moving on dark, meaning they’ll automatically prep for when they’re next used. 

If you would like us to take a look at your show file, feel free to email it to us at support@zero88.com, and we’ll see what is causing the problem. 

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

Hi Edward. Thanks for coming back to me In 

programming them I ques using the go button in the que stack. But  after plotting a scene they default back to the home position. I did recently check if the move on dark option was enabled and it seems to be.  I will email the file over to you.

Thanks

 

Phil
