Newbie To Onyx so require some help


#1

Hi all,
I’ve come from designing and running shows from complete analogue boards like LSC Maxim and I’ve done one show on an ETC Element, but I only plotted stuff for that, I’ve got a good grasp on all the basics of ONYX, but as I move forward to actually programming a Theatre Show.

  1. How can I program my movers so that their position can track before a cue that their lamp is used in (I’ve seen this done on ETC boards, I also know how to do this manually, but that would be a pain).
  2. How can I use a chase/FX in a standard cuelist
    Are their any other things anybody thinks I should know about programming theatre shows on ONYX?

Thanks so much
Harrison

Here is a link to the Mark cue feature for moving lights in while they are blacked out:

If you’re using a standard cue list as your main playback you could use a Macro to trigger a chase on a different playback or just use the effects engine to create the chase you’re looking for. In the next cue you would set the swing to 0 to stop the effect.

Thanks a heap. I’ll have a play around with some fixtures tonight, and see if I can get it working
