Fixture parameter "bleed through" to other fixture


Recommended Posts



I just defined a fixture for an Apollo RightArm (pan, tilt) [plus a brightness channel for the attached lamp]. This was defined from scratch, not by copying another fixture definition.


In the fixture editor, this definition looks fine. However when I load it into my Fat Frog (10.12) and set a fixture (#10) to this profile, I get some other attributes showing on that fixture, that look like attributes from a MAC500 type fixture - Effect, SizeX, SizeY, Rotn etc. I don't have any MACs set as fixtures on the desk, although MAC fixtures do exist in the CFT on the desk.


Ideas? Or how stupid have I been...?

I'm guessing ^_^ that it's because you've defined a speed parameter for the fixture, the software/desk adds the offset parameter for doing fans of moving heads as it tries to be helpful. Can you delete the Speed parameter and see what happens?


(Happy New Year by the way!)
