"Double CT Orange" Pffft - what's wrong with 134 or 158 :P  *grins*

My rig isn't large compared to most of you pros. In this show I have (if I counted everything) 15 LED fixtures (inc 4 movers) and 26 conventionals (Source 4, Prelude F/PC, Quartet F, Minuette F). I'm using "real" gels too: L136, L063, L202, L159, L008 - and L179 chrome orange 🤩 (which indeed won over L134 on this occasion!).

Hi Kevin,

It's the "mash F1" on boot process to recover the console. @Davidmk kindly provided me with details on the PM. I'm hoping not to need that though...

Yep - pressing F1 during boot takes you to the ZerOS Start-Up Tool, which allows you to clear the current show from the console, or perform a software update.

Thanks all for support!

Regards, Kevin

ps Sorry if this is the wrong thread to be having this discussion, feel free to move to a better place in FLX/ZerOS.

No problem at all - these posts might as well stay here anyway.

How are you finding the updated filter data and the updated colour algorithms when using a mixed rig of LEDs and “real” gels?

Hi Jon!

I don't have an A:B comparison as I use generics for face light (and specials, gobos etc) and LEDs for back and side light colour washes. I don't have good enough quality LED fixtures to use for face and hence neither are they colour calibrated. So in that sense I'm not trying to match tungsten+gel to LED+palette, I'm using the colour palettes to pick a convenient colour for LED fixtures rather than a match to conventionals. That said, the wider filter range is nice - but the colour on stage is not really much like the colour on the touchscreen swatch. My LED fixtures tend to be RGB(CW) or RGB(WW) or RGBAW - i.e. no "filler" colour LEDs like lime etc that you get in a high-end LED fixture.

This could be unrelated but I'd have to say the yellow shades I could achieve on my cyc seemed much better than I remember from before - I believe a decent yellow can be hard to achieve from the simpler RGB+W fixtures which I have (in this case my cycs are Stairville RGB(WW) floods).

As mentioned above I did also use the new "Temp" (colour temperature) feature with a Philips PL1 LED profile (probably the "highest quality" LED I have) which as a backlight worked nicely when working with a tungsten Source 4 from the front - I was able to warm-up the PL1 a little to blend a little better with the Source 4.

So probably not the data you're really looking for, but that's all I've got to offer, sorry!

Regards, Kevin

Hi Kevin,

I have added your show file to ZOS-10961. This should aid the software team track down the cause of the issue.

The software team have found the cause of this issue. The fix will be included in ZerOS 7.12.

Many thanks,

Edward

Fantastic thanks Edward!

Interestingly I’ve booted the FLX twice tonight (for dress rehearsal) and on neither occasion did the palette screen appear!

Just to wrap up, thankfully no other issues with the FLX/ZerOS during our tech/dress/performance run. (No issues from any of my other LX or SX kit either including my ~20 yo Sony minidisc decks 😉). Just one blown (but well behaved) T25 in a Prelude PC! 👍

Just the Cue List focus requiring a mouse click once in a while (a bit random as you say)… and on Saturday Matinee, a bit of a PEBCAK issue (ie me! 😆).

PEBCAK made me smile. When I worked in Telecommunications, I queried why my Clerk of Works was writing NFG on rejection slips. He explained it stood for “Not found good”, at least when senior management asked. He had a special one for certain switchboard Operators as well- OFI, “Operator found ignorant”.
