  1. There are some features that won't make it to Solution - but we try to keep those to a minimum. For example, most recently we couldn't bring Philips Hue support to Solution. We no longer update documentation for Solution, but we do note all of these in the release notes - so you would need to read through each of those for the "full picture". We also made the decision a year or so ago that we would "stop supporting" Solution being used without a touchscreen (or alternatively a monitor and mouse together). Whilst most things are still accessible without using anything other than the console itself, it started becoming too complicated to design modern interfaces whilst still supporting Solution front panel hardware without a touchscreen.
  2. The capabilities of Solution are detailed on the webpage, and the datasheets towards the bottom of the page: https://www.zero88.com/control/solution The key things are: 248 fixtures. These are numbered 1-48 (assigned to the 48 faders) and 101-300 (assigned to the 20 Multi-Function Keys ("MFKs") across 10 pages). They can all be anything - there's no limitation of the faders only being dimmers. 400 of each palette type / groups / macros 201 playbacks (10 faders, 20 pages, plus the "Master Playback") 2048 DMX channels (4 "full universes", but can be spread across 64 universes).
  3. Are you sure? This isn't a feature and doesn't work when I do it. To jump to a cue, you need to hold down GO, type the Cue Number, and then release GO. When I try this, it's working for Cue 1, 16, and 161.
  4. Indeed... we're locked into whatever each platform allows us to do, with for YouTube is very little
  5. Currently, I don't believe we've heard of any new ideas based on the current waveform engine... but we're all ears to good ones! We do have ideas about more substantial changes one day.
  6. I'd expect nothing less Waveforms and Auto Effect Palettes are all provided by ZerOS Library. What would you be looking for?
  7. ZerOS 7.13 has been released which fulfils "Fixture builder within ZerOS" (6.82% with 21 votes) and "GDTF support" (0.65% with 2 votes) - so I've removed these options from the poll. It's interesting that GDTF Support was voted so low on the forum... but as we said right at the start of this thread: Support for GDTF has been one of the more regular requests via feedback through other channels.
  8. Dear All, We’re excited to announce the availability of ZerOS 7.13, a new update for consoles and servers running the ZerOS Operating System.

  9. @drscoop - if OSC is interesting to you, you can upvote it on this thread:
  10. The icons are now fixed too (quicker than expected!)
  11. The forum has been unexpectedly offline for around 11 hours today. Apologies for the inconvenience. Everything appears functional, apart from icons which are failing to display – we’re working on this!
  12. We've released a BETA version of ZerOS which supports "Fixture builder within ZerOS" and "GDTF support", along with various other new features. If you would like to be involved in testing this software, please drop us an email to Support@Zero88.com
  13. Yes, so long as the features are shared across the consoles - you’re fine. So, for example, FLX supports 240 groups, whereas FLX S24 supports 48 groups - so groups 49 - 240 will be lost
  14. Hi Max, In addition to everything Edward's already said - can you describe the sort of effect(s) you’d like to achieve that you can’t currently do on FLX S? It would be good to take this into account in future developments. Thanks!
  15. We'll also be reducing the brightness of the red in 7.13 to help mitigate these alarm bells! ZerOS has always (within my time, at least!) stored patched fixtures within the showfile and used that if the library fixture was different. However, as the library format hardly ever changed, no one ever knew and so it caused no problems. Over the past couple of years we've made significant improvements to the library, and so we needed to provide an "upgrade" mechanism to utilise these new features (and a way of indicated this was possible).
  16. LOL! Zero 88 is a brand within Signify - that isn't changing - so the Signify address remains - no change there! Sadly I joined the team too late to have an @zero88.com email address... my history is: @cooperindustries.com @eaton.com @cooperlighting.com @signify.com I've averaged an address every three years... it's a great way to avoid the spam bots
  17. The "official" news is here: https://www.vari-lite.com/global/about/signify The three brands (Vari-Lite, Strand, and Zero 88) are already a single team, so no change there. No current products will be rebranded.
  18. It’s been lovely to speed up releases now that two+ years of big “behind the scenes” changes are complete (library, multi-cell, multi-emitter). Looking forward to the next release, targeting within the next two months!
  19. Yes, I'd definitely see this being a custom dimmer curve, where you stay at 0% for the first 1/10th, then fade up to 100% over 8/10th, and then stay at 100% intensity for the last 1/10th.
  20. Dear All, We’re excited to announce the availability of ZerOS 7.12, a new update for consoles and servers running the ZerOS Operating System. New Features include: KiNET support Vision.Net support Philips Hue support Updated fonts & improved font rendering ZerOS Library 3.2 Various enhancements and bug fixes Please see the Release Notes for full details. The Online Manual has also been updated to support all the new features: https://zero88.com/manuals/zeros ZerOS 7.12, Phantom ZerOS 7.12 (offline editor) and the Release Notes can be found at zero88.com/zeros If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at support@zero88.com Kind regards, Jon
  21. Hi @CestM0i64, we have a thread where you can vote for features you'd like to see - I suggest voting there!
  22. Apologies, you're completely correct - I was on my mobile and didn't notice that minor (!) detail. As usual, ignore me and read what Edward says
  23. For screws: ORB: https://zero88.com/storage/downloads/c1fe1a80-25f9-4155-9d01-31c241a10ac8/orb-access-diagram.pdf ORB XF: https://zero88.com/storage/downloads/f6bb58da-c63a-41dd-b467-efb049a85503/orb-xf-access-diagram.pdf (These are both available from the ORB Product Page: https://zero88.com/control/orb) Once you're inside, you should easily see the CR2032 battery on the main processor board (the board screwed to the bottom of the console)
