  1. Hi @Malvern To best answer both of your questions, it may be easiest to see a copy of your show file. Please feel free to email us a copy to support@zero88.com, to allow us to help further. Please detail which fixture numbers, and which playback numbers you are referring to. Presuming the effect is recorded on a playback fader, firstly raise the playback fader. Using the channel buttons, select the light that is yellow. Using the colour controls, set it back to white. Then tap UPDATE, and tap the playback's button below its fader, to store the updated colour information. It sounds like these playbacks are not mixing how you want them to. This probably means there is information recorded in the cues that shouldn't be. The video below explains in detail how you can mix playbacks together... If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
  2. Hi Stefan, If you wish to "fade in" and effect, you can use the "Fader Controls Effect" option in a playback's settings. This allows a playback's fader to control the intensity, speed, and size of the effect recorded on it. This is ideal if you have your fixtures in a position, and you want to add movement subtly by fading in the effect. To control just the speed of a recorded effect, you can configure a Speed Override fader. To do this, hold SETUP and tap an empty playback. Choose Speed Override and click OK. Then move this fader to 50%. This Speed Override fader can now control the speed of any playback. To choose a playback, press and hold VIEW, and tap a playback's button. The Speed Override fader can then speed up or slow down effects on the chosen playback, by raising or lowering the Speed Override fader. I'd recommend watching the video below, to make sure you're getting the most out of effects... The "Offset By Group" option may help achieve what you're after. We'd certainly like to improve the effects in ZerOS. If improved effects in ZerOS are a high-priority for you, please vote for "Improve Effects Engine" using the poll on the link below... I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions. Edward
  3. That would be very helpful. Feel free to email support@zero88.com if that's easier. Edward
  4. Hi @Ed75 If the Solution and FLX S48 network settings are configured identically, and you simply plug the Solution into your PC rather than the FLX S48, the Remote app connection should work on both consoles. Have you ever used the network connection on your Solution console? If not, it would be worth pinging the console from your PC, to check the network interface is working correctly. Edward
  5. Hi @Ed75 On Solution consoles, you can configure an empty playback fader to control the Programmer Time, in the same way you can on FLX S48. Hope this helps, Edward
  6. Hi @Ed75 Have you enabled Programmer Time? If you are on FLX S, tap the Z/Shift key to access Programmer Time on the fourth encoder wheel. You can then click the fourth encoder's button, to enable/disable Programmer Time. If Programmer Time has been configured onto a playback, the playback's button will enable/disable Programmer Time. Edward
  7. Hi @Ed75 If it works fine on your FLX S48, please ensure the Remote connection on your Solution is using the same IP address as your FLX S48. If you want to have both the FLX S48 and Solution on the same network, change one of their IP addresses by 1. Edward
  8. Bonjour Delphine, Nous sommes désolés d'apprendre que vous avez rencontré ces problèmes avec votre console. Il semble y avoir quelque chose dans votre système qui cause des interférences importantes, ce qui provoque le blocage du panneau avant pendant que ZerOS continue de fonctionner. Si vous exécutez la console sans connexion USB, Ethernet ou DMX, voyez-vous également ces problèmes ? Utilisez-vous le bloc d'alimentation FLX S d'origine ? Selon la question de Kevin, utilisez-vous le logiciel ZerOS 7.13 ? Veuillez nous faire savoir si vous avez des questions. Edward
  9. Hi @Ed75 Upon connecting ZerOS Monitor to your Solution, you should see the screen below... This allows you to choose which desktop to view. After choosing a desktop, you can then use the desktop switcher bottom-left of the screen to change desktop. Are you running ZerOS Monitor on Windows, iPadOS, or Android? Are you connecting to the console via Wi-Fi or Ethernet? If you are connecting wirelessly, does your device have strong signal? Let us know if you have any questions. Edward
  10. Hi @DALX As @kgallen mentions, you should be able to record just the furthest point you'd like your fixtures to move to onto a fader. You can then choose "Fader Controls Position" in the playback's settings. The fader will then act as a crossfader, from the fixture's current position, to the fixtures recorded position. This is a very important piece of information, to allow you to record just the position information, with the fixture off to ensure intensity is not recorded. Apologies if I have misunderstood, but I believe the Fader Controls Position method will allow you to just use a single playback fader, to move the fixtures from their current location, to the recorded location, and then back again. Hope this helps, Edward
  11. Hi @Uriahdemon There is no way of exporting this information. If you need to just quickly check your universes, I’d recommend tapping SETUP -> Add Fixtures -> Next -> and then type in the universe number you need to check. Edward
  12. See the link below for information on upgrading “legacy” fixtures… https://www.zero88.com/manuals/zeros/patching/fixture-schedule/change-fixture#upgrade Edward
  13. Hi Mike, If you click on a parameter's encoder button, and see details labelled "Macros" as per your photo, this indicates that you need to use fixture macros to access these functions. To do this, select the fixture, and then tap the MACROS key on the console. If you haven't done so already, then tap Automatically Create Macros. You should then see a [Lamp Off] and [Lamp On] macro available. Tapping these, will send the respective instruction to your fixtures. The console will automatically set the required parameters to the required values for the required amount of time, in order to activate the function. For more information on macros, please see the link below... https://www.zero88.com/manuals/zeros/macros I hope this helps, Edward
  14. Hi Tom, Thank you for the information. Would you be able to email us a copy of your Jester's show file to support@zero88.com? We'll then be able to investigate further. Edward
  15. Hi @Ed75 This is not possible in the Fixture Levels window. However for this, you could of course perform a normal tracking update, by going into your cue, selecting fixtures, tweaking them, and then tapping UPDATE -> Track Forwards -> GO. Edward
  16. Hi @Ed75 In a word, yes. OSC input is now very high up our internal list of features to implement. Currently, ZerOS only supports Vision.Net network triggers to trigger cues. If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
  17. Hi Tom, On Jester ML consoles, the channel faders can be used to control individual DMX channels. It is therefore not possible to patch a 10-channel fixture to a channel fader, as the channel fader only controls a single DMX channel. This will be because DMX addresses 70 thru 79 are already in use by the 10-channel fixture patched to one of the fixture MFKs. You therefore cannot re-patch a channel fader to an address already in use by a fixture. If you can control the intensity of other 10-channel fixtures using the faders, this would suggest the fixture's intensities have been programmed into Submasters. I would assume that if you tap the FIXTURES key, you can see all your 10-channel fixtures on the MFKs. Edward
  18. Hi @Ed75 By allowing that change to track, yes. In the example below, I have double-clicked on fixture 2's intensity value in cue 3, which is currently @ 0%... I am given the option to remove the value cue only, meaning the next cue's value stays as it is, or remove the value with tracking, meaning changes from previous cues can track through. I am also given the option to edit the value. In the example below, I have edited the intensity to 20%... This intensity change then tracks down through subsequent cues. This logic also applies to all other parameters that may have been recorded. Hope this helps, Edward
  19. Hi @Ed75 Thanks very much for the update. Pleased to hear you were able to pick up a Solution console. The "Fixture Levels" window is available on Solution series and Orb series consoles. It is not available on FLX series consoles. The Fixture Levels window can be used as a "track sheet", to allow you to edit cue values in spreadsheet form. This allows you to make a change to a value in a cue, and then decide whether to make the change cue-only or with tracking. Hope this helps, Edward
  20. Hi Mike, Thanks very much for the update. Pleased to hear it. Edward
  21. Hi @tomaspokorny Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts. It is much appreciated. Thank you for this suggestion. Individual fixtures can be recorded into cues, and the fixture's intensities can reference the level recorded in a group. If the intensity level in the group is updated, the cues update too... https://www.zero88.com/manuals/zeros/groups/referencing-intensity-groups However, if you update a group to add a fixture, this fixture wouldn't automatically be added into all cues that were recorded using the group. If you need to add another fixture, and you want it to always respond like an existing identical fixture, you could simply use a single fixture number of the console, but add additional DMX addresses to it... https://www.zero88.com/manuals/zeros/patching/fixture-schedule/edit-dmx-address Cues can't currently be accessed through onscreen tiles. However, you can record "snapshot palettes", which may achieve what you're after. Please see the link below for more information... https://www.zero88.com/manuals/zeros/palettes/recording-palettes This is an enhancement we would like to implement in a future software update. This feature request is logged as reference number ZOS-9979 on our system. If you can email your show file to support@zero88.com along with your fixture files, we will be able to investigate this further. In the Faders window, the current functionality of pressing the onscreen playbacks is displayed. This option can be changed in Setup -> Settings -> Operational. I have logged your suggestion to add cue names to the onscreen playbacks in the Faders window. This enhancement is logged as reference number ZOS-8875. Thanks again for taking the time to share your suggestions. If you have any questions, please let us know. Edward
  22. Hi Alex, Nice! Thanks very much for sharing. Edward
  23. Hi @scottydog75 Thanks very much for the update. Pleased to hear it. Edward
  24. Hi @drscoop Hope you're well. The Output window on the FLX S internal touchscreen is formatted to 12 fixtures wide. The Output window on external desktops is formatted to 24 fixtures wide. If you are seeing fixture number 13 top-right of your Output Window, are you missing a fixture number between 1-12? If so, fixture 13 will have bumped up a row. Hope this helps. Edward
  25. Hi @DaveB Welcome to the Zero 88 Forum. There is no way of automatically renumbering memories on Jester consoles. You would need to manually re-record the lighting states to the required memory numbers. Edward
