[request] Groups for Fixtures in Generator

Postby DeeStage » 27 July 2016, 19:56

Hey ;)

I miss the feature to put the selected Fixtures into different groups in generator. So that Fixtures in the same group have the same ammount of Shift.

For instance:
I have 4 movinglights and I want to let them run a Circle in Pan/Tilt.. But i want Movinghead 1&3 to do the same and Movinghead 2&4 to do the same.
Just with a shift of 50% between these two Groups....

PS: its not possible to realize an Efffect like that with Pan/Tilt Reverse.

best regards DeeStage

Noted.
Would require too much programming job, for a too small new function, in our opinion.

Thank you ;)

I just have taken a Vido to show you why I really need a feature like this.

Bumping this request. I see a lot of designs like the "symmetrical cartwheel" where, for example, you have two lights circling in towards the center left to right, and two more lights going right to left at the same time. Right now, I cant figure out how to clone the movement of one moving head to another in a generator. This video obviously isn't a Lighting Controller video, but the movement he shows at 4:45 is what I'm trying to get to. Thank you!!

You can save a movement pattern, this can later be applied to the other lights, this should work as a clone.

I've saved a pattern before and applied it to another set of lights, but then in live view I have to have two buttons activated at once to make them work together and I'm sort of OCD if you will about being able to just have one live button for that movement. I know it doesn't sound like a pressing issue but, would definitely make things easier being able to make two fixtures do the same thing from another set in generator. :D

Sure, I know what you're going trough. To achieve such scenes, I always have a background tab with these kinds of buttons. The scenes are either triggered by a macro key or by assigning the same midi note to both buttons (whatever works best).

As an idea for support; maybe an option to invert pan or tilt (or both) per fixture per generator scene?

This is already existing: toolbar > button "Menu" > select "Reverse Pan/Tilt"

Still +1 on this, If you find the time, please implement this, it'll make the software more useful on big shows.
