Fixture Outputs Screen

Recommended Posts

Moderation: Split from the Effects Generator and Wheel Editing Modes topic.

 

I suggest that you try displaying the Fixture Outputs screen on the monitor and look at the parameter values for the different fixtures as you move the wheel

 

Displaying the Fixture Outputs screen ? - Errr have I miss anything the last ten months ? Just curious about that one ...dry.gif

 

The outputs screen shows data taken from the first selected fixture, isn´t it ?

Are you perhaps confusing the two different monitor output screens :?:

 

The Desk Channel Outputs screen shows generic channel and fixture brightness outputs and the fixture parameter output values for the 'primary fixture' (if a fixture is selected). This screen is displayed on the monitor by pressing the Outputs button on the front panel.

 

However, in a previous post I suggested displaying the Fixture Outputs screen on the monitor, as you can see the output values of all fixture parameters for 12 fixtures at a time, compared with the Desk Channel Outputs screen and the wheel LCD which only show the values for the 'primary fixture'.

 

Fixture Outputs Screen - Press and hold F1 and then one of the fixture selection buttons.

 

The fixture selection button pressed determines the order in which the fixtures are displayed on the monitor screen, for example on the Fat Frog:

 

F1 + Fixture 1 Selection Button -> Displays Fixtures 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12

 

F1 + Fixture 7 Selection Button -> Displays Fixtures 7,8,9,10,11,12,1,2,3,4,5,6

 

On the larger desks, the monitor displays 12 fixtures starting at the fixture number selected.

perhaps I never savvied that fixture output screen is existing. :schock:

 

I must have another read through the manual.spammer.gif

 

Amazing how many hints I got every day reading this forums. :lol:

The Fixture Outputs Screen has been there for quite a while (Software Version 3 I think)

... I wonder how many other users haven't spotted it yet :oops:

 

Here is an example (courtesy of Phantom Frog):

The Frog Series Operating Manual (Issue 6) - Page 7-11.

 

It's amazing what nuggets of useful information can be found in the "Other Features" chapter of the manual :P

 

OK, I agree that the background colours on the Fixture Outputs screen could do with toning down a bit, but I have always found this screen useful when testing moving light functionality, especially when the desk isn't actually connected to the rig :)

I've just been trawling through the archives and verified that the monitor output screens (including the Fixture Outputs screen) were first implemented in Software Version 3, and documented in Issue 2 of the Frog Series Operating Manual - both September 2001 8O

I would just like to point out that details of the new and modified functions which were added in Release 9 of the software are documented in both the Release Notes and the updated versions of the Frog Series and Mambo Frog manuals.

 

The main functions are also summarised in the 'sticky' topics in the Frog Software Releases Forum.

 

I should know as I wrote all of them ! 8O

 

Updating the manuals does take a fair amount of time, especially when the functional updates are as many and varied as those in Release 9. At least, I only have to do the English ones :wink:

 

Tip of the Week: R.T.F.M (Read the Frog Manual) :D

True ? Read the Frog Manual ??

 

How are the chances to have a manual with a plot and a "good story" in it

A sence of humor can feed high expectations. :roll:
