Understanding Smart Tag


Recommended Posts

I've been using the FLX for some time now without understanding a lot of the features, it's been pretty much turn it on and go (says something about the intuitiveness of the desk 👍) without really knowing what mode the desk has been in  but after playing around with some more advanced settings I cant get my head round smart tag.

I understand tracking, where and changes I make to a cue will be tracked into the next cues etc but I cant figure out smart tag. When you change a parameter, that gets tagged, so when you press record, the tagged parameter gets recorded but the manual says any fixtures with an intensity of 0 will not be recorded.

Does this mean that if in cue 5, I have 5 lights on at 100 % then bring one of them down to 0% and record cue 6, that change wont get recorded as the intensity is at 0%

Sorry if this is a silly question, just trying to understand.

Not quite. With SmartTag enabled, changes in intensity data will always be stored when RECORD or UPDATE is pressed. However, if a fixture is at 0% with SmartTag enabled, no attributes will be stored. This is to allow Move On Dark to work with the fixture off. The other main benefit to SmartTag, is it will automatically tag and record any playbacks that might be active into your cue.

With SmartTag disabled, only tagged information will be recorded. This allows you to have a lighting state up, control lights with the programmer, record the lighting state, and only the programmer information will be stored. When you play your cue you therefore won’t get the same lighting state you saw when you pressed RECORD, just your manual controls.

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