Macros on FLX 7.9.5

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

 

I have a question about macro’s. 

 is it possible to record multiple command (lines) in a single macro?

Hi Romec,

When recording a macro, you have the option to record keys, or commands. If you choose commands, anything that gets written in the command line will be stored, until you press the MACRO button. Then when you recall the macro, all commands will be replayed as a single string.

Hope this helps,

Edward

Hi Edward. 

 

Thank you for your advise. 

I have a whole lot more questions now. Let’s see if I can write them down

1: if I made a macro. Can I change it afterwords? And can I see the command-feedback (so that I know what I did) 

2: so a macro can only contain 1 string of commands, right? 

3: what would be the right syntax if I would overwrite a preset? (EG: fixture X at preset Y , store / overwrite) 

 

thats it it for now  

thank you!

When macros have been programmed, they can't be edited. When you recall a macro, you will see the commands being typed in the command line. If you wish you can slow the playback speed. To do this hold SETUP and tap the Macro tile in the macros window, and from the Speed drop down choose Slow.

Macros can include as many button presses as you wish.

If you wanted this to be a macro, you would tap RECORD -> MACRO -> 1 -> Commands -> [fixture number] -> [attribute key followed by palette number] -> RECORD -> [attribute key followed by palette number you wish to overwrite] -> ENTER -> MACRO.

Hi Edward, 

 

thank you so much for your help. It has been very helpful! 

 

About the speed, is this utilized when a macro needs a bit more time to execute? Or what would be the purpose of slowing down the macro?

Hi Romec,

That's correct, in some situations you may want the steps of the macro to execute over a longer period - for example when entering or exiting Setup using a "keys" Macro.
