  1. This is really important feedback @Amy Worrall, thanks for taking the time to capture it all!
  2. Hi @dolphins 7.13 will require an old coprocessor code. When you install 7.13 after 7.14, the installer will also move the coprocessor back to 7.13. -> your experience is expected 🙂 I hope that translates ok!
  3. Hopefully @Edward Z88 will be here soon to give you proper advice, but it seems for now you should backdate to 7.13 for your show. If you did update coprocessor firmware then it will want to regress that too. A while back I was testing some beta releases of ZerOS and needed to regress to 7.13 for a show. I didn't (fortunately) have any issues. Note this was FLX rather than FLX S though.
  4. Hi both! @delfine Did the console want to update the coprocessor firmware, and if so did you allow it to do it? @Flabbe With the touchscreen, did you recalibrate it after the ZerOS install? (Maybe you need to press the Update button to make calibrate work on your monitor?)
  5. If you Untag something then that untagged change will not be recorded or updated. You need to use the REMOVE method discussed above to take a something out of a cue.
  6. I agree! However it's embarrassing sometimes, I should have known "Clear Fixture" off the top of my head! 😏 What it reminds me is I need to keep reading the manual and focusing on some of the "advanced" sections. And to keep re-watching Edward's various FLX/ZerOS videos!
  7. @Edward Z88 ah Clear Fixture - that's the one! I was completely wrong! Edward, would you be prepared to add that to the "Manual Tagging" section of this page - or a cross-link or one of your "lightbulb" boxes to point to that if it's documented elsewhere in the manual (seems to he here)? I'm sure you probably mention Clear Fixture in the video that is in that section, I just didn't want to watch all of that video to answer Amy's question. 🙂
  8. Hi @Edward Z88 Could you answer this part of the original query. I'm pretty sure I'm wrong in my answer. I couldn't find anything in the manual, but I'm sure there must be something... This part of my answer I'm pretty sure is wrong, or at least missing something: Thanks, Kevin
  9. ZerOS tags when you adjust <thing> but I guess you know that!
  10. Sure, that's of course fine! I was just curious that Amy might think she "needs" to work with SmartTag off when doing theatre stacks. Each to their own based on their needs, experience and workflow. 🙂
  11. Hi Amy, I guess I should've questioned this one: Why? (out of interest!) I programme theatre cue stacks and rarely turn off SmartTag. I only do if I need to do a REMOVE or something very specific for an UPDATE operation. I know that the busking folk tend to turn SmartTag off but this is because they are doing some complex overlaying of Playbacks with very specific material recorded into each playback, and generally not using a traditional stack or relying on features such as Move on Dark. But for theatre cue stack I would have thought in the main, you'd have SmartTag on.
  12. Yes, sorry, I should have elaborated on my answer for attribute remove! Thanks for clarifying that! - I should have thought more about "thing"!
  13. Hi Amy, "Welcome back!". I'll try to help... Since you have an FLX, the Output window has a Preview button. To see fixture details (colour, gobo etc) you'll have to select them first and then you'll get a scrollable list. (Might not be quite as good as you have on Eos). SmartTag looks for non-zero intensity then records only the attributes/parameters that are adjusted in the programmer and are thus required to be recorded to recreate that look. Whether it is attribute or parameter depends on the attribute. For example by default, Colour parameters are linked together (so you get the colour you want) whereas Shape and Beam parameters are not grouped (gobo is not linked with zoom for example). If you turn SmartTag off then tagging will be based on what you adjusted but the "linking" will be as above. You can change this in Setup. To untag a whole fixture, select it then (I think) it's CLEAR+HOME (need to check the manual!). To untag a whole attribute it's CLEAR+COLOUR (for example) Select the Fixture, hit HOME (this will tag all parameters). UPDATE and select the REMOVE option. (See David's elaboration in the following post). Palettes recorded on a fixture can be applied to another fixture of the exact same type even if that other fixture wasn't selected when recorded. There isn't currently any other "palette morphing" onto a fixture with similar capabilities but a different make/model. (This is something I/we've been asking for for some time, so I hope it will come along soon... 😉 ) No you won't do it by accident. You have to try "quite hard" to get anything but Colour in a Colour palette (but actually you can record Beam/Shape etc in there but you have to be very explicit to do that). The most (in my usage) application of this is to be very specific about which attributes are recorded into an Effect palette. I'm not sure you can do that. Using the "spreadsheet" style of the cue list one by one is the only method I know. You can however in Setup, set the default times for fades, so if during programming you need different times for a block of cues you could do this. But once you've programmed, I don't know a quicker way to update them. There is reasonable COPY (and MOVE) functionality (especially on FLX), but I don't know that you can do this. I hope that helps! I'd encourage you to put enhancement requests in on this forum for any features you have in Eos that would be beneficial on ZerOS. To record a blackout, I recommend "1 THRU *. <ENTER>" as this allows move on dark to continue to work. Similarly, avoid snapshot cues Similarly if you get white boxes in your output windows, those fixtures have "blocked" values. If this is not intended, then use UPDATE <ENTER> (with SmartTag enabled) to remove these. Note also when you're using UPDATE to ensure you've selected the tracking option you want - Cue Only, Track Forward etc (those are probably the options you're most likely to use). Tracking works well on FLX so I'd encourage you to stay in that mode, and not go back to Global Cue Only mode (in Setup). Regards, Kevin

    Salut! https://www.zero88.com/manuals/zeros/cues-playbacks/recording-cues-2
  15. Yes. Software update requires a power cycle, so on FLX S you have to do this via "external means", which may be the switch on the socket (in the UK) or disconnecting the AC or DC side of the power to the console.
