    I want to use the auto trigger to start a second Q a number of seconds after the first Q and to let that run independently of the first Q. However it seems that the first Q is simply slowed down so they both finish at the same time rather than give a proper lapped Q effect. Is this correct of have I set this up wrongly? I am trying this on the Phantom desk.

    So combining this with Edward's answer sounds like you need:

    1. A "first Q"
    2. A following "Auto With" cue with a Delay "a number of seconds"

    To allow them to overlap properly and only control "their own" fixtures you'll almost certainly need to be in Tracking and use SmartTag or your own careful tagging to make sure you only record what you need in each cue - the "Auto With" one being the most critical.

  2. We’ll there should be ‘nothing to know’ really - the fixture should just work for colour and intensity like any other. Sounds a bit like the fixture profile is wrong for the actual device, like the DMX channels are mixed up. 

    If you have the opportunity I’d patch a bunch of 1-channel dimmers from the base address of one of your x-Bricks and see what each channel does. List what you find here and with your show file Edward should be able to decode what the fixture profile says versus what you found from a channel-by-channel analysis.  

  3. Retirez toutes les clés USB.

    Quelle version de ZerOS ?

    Avez-vous changé quelque chose récemment (matériel/logiciel) qui aurait pu déclencher les problèmes ?


    Remove any USB sticks.

    What ZerOS version?

    Did you change anything recently (hardware / software) that may have triggered the problems?

    Hi all,

    It seems Zeros monitor doesn't work on my Solution. I can connect to the desk, after that I get the black Zeros screen, but it doesn't give me the option menu  which screen to show. Any idea's?

    Ed, record here the versions of ZerOS / ZerOS Monitor you're using and seeing the problems with, it's the first thing Edward will need to know before he can help you.

    How do I put tilt onto a playback fader to allow manual position to light the actor?

    I need two faders, one to move the light towards the stage steps for entrances, and one to move the mover towards the foyer exits?

    To elaborate on the discussion above (and hopefully not confuse you more).

    If I'm reading this correctly, then maybe you can programme two Playbacks, one for each of the positions you want to manually "fade" to.

    As Edward says above, you need to record the final position of the mover for each required "cue". With the fader configured as "Controls Position" then you won't need to separately control pan and tilt on separate playbacks. So if you record (say) Playback 1 with the mover positioned at "stage steps" and Playback 2 with the mover positioned at "foyer exit" then the respective playback should be usable for you to manually "fade" the position from where-ever the mover currently is, to that respective "final" position (for both pan and tilt) per the playback. Whether the mover will track along a path of your liking is to be discovered, but I don't think you would have a good time with a playback being "pan" and one being "tilt" if that was your original thought (you could do this but you would also need to configure "Parameter Separate" for Position as by default, if you move Pan then Tilt will also get tagged and hence recorded - sorry if this bit makes no sense, I just wanted to confirm you could do that, but it requires a change to the desk default setup).

    I hope that helps!

  6. You can't assign the Grand Master function to a MFF in Channel mode, the MFFs need to be in Playbacks mode. In Channel mode, fader 24 will always be the intensity/trigger for fixture 24.

    The way to configure an MFF in Playbacks mode is "Setup + Playback button" (then select Grand Master), noting that the Playback needs to be unprogrammed to get those options.

  7. I think Setup on a playback has a ‘fader controls…’ setting you can set to Position.

    There will be some examples somewhere on Fader Controls… Colour, which should be translatable into similar for Position.

    Youll have to record just Position info for your fixture to a Playback by turning off SmartTag when you record it. 

  8. That just means when you turn off the console you don't lose your programming. Either the Solution has a battery-backed RAM area or it has some non-volatile Flash or EEPROM that it updates from volatile working memory.

    So what I'm saying is, that "save" is just non-volatile working memory, not a "backup" that you can recover.

    Basically if you don't have your show saved to USB stick (I think that's the medium used by Solution), then you've lost it and will need to reprogramme the cues from scratch. Sorry 😞 

    Sounds like you need to save to USB stick more incrementally so you have an earlier state to go back to. When programming I usually save at key points (i.e. when I have chance!), <show>_tech<n> or <show>_dress<n> etc where <n> is 1,2,3,... etc so I have a chronological sequence of states I can go back to. The "final" show I save to two USB sticks, one that I leave with the console, one I take away from me (and try to remember to upload to the computer at home!).
