Why do my fixtures go to the home position

Recommended Posts

When I have programmed chases in my memories, and copied them to subs my fixtures go to the home position when I use the subs to start a chase. What am I doing wrong :?:

Before I can offer an explanation - could you tell me whether the desk is operating in full or partial mode and also what version of software is running in the desk as we changed how chases run on submasters in version 9.0.

When you are in full mode all the generic/dimmer channels and all fixture parameters are recorded at their current output values, when you program a memory or submaster.

 

Therefore whenever you output a scene memory or a chase memory via the playback X (memory stack) or using a submaster, all the channels and fixtures will be affected.

 

Dimmer channels and fixture brightness parameters will be mixed in on a HTP basis, and all the colour, beamshape and position parameters will work LTP and snap or fade to their programmed levels.

 

If you want your submasters to only affect certain fixtures that you have specifically programmed, you need to put the desk in partial mode first.

 

Then, when programming memories or submasters, you need to 'tag' the fixtures you want recorded. You can also choose to just record colour, or beamshape or position parameters if required. Note - that Brightness is ALWAYS recorded, so if you don't want a particular fixture to appear in a scene or submaster, ensure that it's brightness is set to zero.

 

See the operating manual pages 4-4 to 4-11 and 5-1 to 5-9 for further information on programming memories and submasters.
