Groups on playback ‘flash’ button

Recommended Posts

Hello, running FLX S48 on 7.9.5, is there any possible way, of using the playback flash buttons to become a group button?

Currently have a set of playbacks programmed to control 10 movers but would be great to be able to push a channel flash button to select these movers instead of using the touch screen groups page.

Current fades for example

1. 10 movers intensity

2. 10 movers colours

3.10 movers gobos

4. 10 movers position (based on a position pallet saved)

So would love it if either on a separate fader or ideally the flash button to sub 1 would select the 10 movers.

 

On a totally separate question, sorry if this should be in a new thread, we have the desks profile for showtec stardrape parched, RGB colours work fine, but the cloth also has built in programs (which intensity must be at 0 to work) which at programming stage work buy selecting fixtures, using the encoders to set the right effect, record, but at playback, nothing happens. I’m presuming I’m missing something simple, and have even tried making a playback with all the correct DMX levels for the built in programs then adding intensity at full, and also saving a playback with inhibit hoping that with them both up, I would get output, but to no avail.

any help would be much appreciated, 

thank you

Hi Philp,

For the second part of your question this will be because SmartTag is not recording your fixture requirements because intensity is at zero. When you want to record that cue using the fixture macro programmes, hold RECORD, tap SmartTag (so it is blue) then OK. Remember that for the next cue when you record, you probably want to hold RECORD again and tap SmartTag back to red as probably you want to use SmartTag for building the rest of your cue stack.

Hi Philp,

It is not currently possible to configure a playback’s button to be a group select. This functionality is only possible on the full size FLX by programming a macro. 

As Kevin says, the reason your playback wasn’t getting recorded correctly was due to SmartTag being enabled, which ignores fixtures with 0% intensity. 

Hope this helps,

Edward

Useful to know... I must try some macros... (other thank triggering playback chases).
