I'm creating an effect with some movers. I put them in Figure 8 and then I use SHIFT+Speed to create and fan first offset. The lights are now randomly moving around which is what I want. However, when I record the cue it completely forgets the offset. It will remember literally every attribute (speed, tilt, pan, size...) but it will not remember the Fan option. This means when I go back into the cue, the lights will all be moving in perfect time with each other, instead of randomly like I want them to. I've tried pretty much every combination of record options (smart tag on/off, tracking on/off, snapshot, shift+record, and every other option available in the pop up window) Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hi All, Have created a new fixture file for some 36*18 led wash clones. All seems OK except when setting an effect the fixture has a jerky movement. Also seen on some Lanta Neptunes. I had thought it was the fixture... any ideas? (file attached) LasTyp1.ift
I'm struggling to get to grips with the Effect Waveforms with my RGB fixtures. I've been trying to make a smooth fade across the RGB spectrum, so starting at Red fading through to Yellow into Green to Cyan then into Blue and finally Magenta before fading back to Red and moving evenly across all the colours in between. I don't want it to stop at any point in the cycle and I don't want it to dip to black... just a consistent colour fade that goes round and round. How do I achieve this with the Effect Waveform generator? If I set Red, Green and Blue to Sine then they all follow the same path so I get fade to White, then out etc... Logically I think I need to offset the Sine wave, but the options are Sine, Sine 180, Sine 270. This doesn't seem to make sense since if I offset Green by 180 it's doing the opposite curve to Red, if I set then set Blue to Sine 270 they are all out of sync so it never does the cycle I'm looking for. It feels like I need to set the Sine to 120 for Green and 240 for Blue but those aren't options.... Is my understanding of how this works wrong? I feel like I need a tutorial on how this feature is implemented. Most colour fixtures are either RGB or CMY with an increasing number of RGBA/RGBW etc... So I don't understand why the 120/240 offsets for the Function don't exist. The Step function is the same, it's 0/90/180/270... again divided into 4. So how does this work with fixtures that use three colour attributes?
Hello Guys, My Name Is James, I am 15 years old and I have being the lighting technition at my school in Hull for about 2 years now. At my school, we have the Jester ML 24 Lighting Desk. And here is the list of lights that we have. 6 x Chauvet Dimmer Packs 2 x Robe Colourmix 250 2 x Robe Clubspot 300 Moving Heads 2 x Robe Colour Wash 250 Moving Heads 6 VISAGE 056 Par Cans. Now, I know most of the Jester to program small shows, however with it coming up to Christmas and we have allot of talent shows I wanted to do something different in terms of the moving lights which their is 4 in total. The things I want to know how to do is to create is it a chase so you could just have 3 colour changing automatically, and the lights moving on their own. We base our talent show on the X Factor, so really I want effects like when we do the results, the lights rush down if that makes sense. Also, if anyone could help me with setting up slow automatic fading between programmed cues so when you go to the next cue, its not just bang I want it to slowly fade in. Sorry for the poor knowledge, I basically just got told what we had as I am the only one who knows how to use it in my school Any videos, comments or links will be really helpful thanks. Thanks Again, James Everett
