Hi All,

I'm a little confused by custom fixture files and when happens to them when you reset the desk (FLX)

I have ended up with various show files, each containing custom fixture files but no one showfile has all of them in. Unfortunately I no longer have the files on computer for each of custom one I made. Is there a was of exporting fixture files of the desk to I can load them into a different showfile?

Thanks.

Maybe you can use Save Setup and Palette ?

Kevin's option works if you want to use a custom fixture on a new showfile, but not if you want to use them in a showfile you've already created.

If you haven't kept the original files, there's no way to do that unfortunately.

So custom fixtures are stored when saving a complete show but then if you reset the desk, those custom fixtures do not stay in the desk and are only available when you load that showfile again?

We have a couple of different venues with our site that we use the desk in, each with different fixtures so would the recommended way of moving the desk between rooms be to delete fixtures, playbacks and palettes etc but not to reset the desk so the custom fixture files stay on there?

Thanks

Hello,

Reset Desk will not remove custom fixture files. That is why under SETUP -> Clear Options, there is also a Clear Fixture Files button. A Factory Reset however, will remove custom fixture files.

I'd therefore recommend resetting the desk, not factory resetting, to allow you to still access the custom fixture files that are currently in the console.

If possible, it is a good idea to collate all custom fixture files into a single fixture file, as a backup for if you need to perform a factory reset or software update.

Hope this helps,

Edward
