I am looking for the easiest way to tweak the level of an individual fixture intensity within a cue; ideally using a fader on the virtual console.
For context; in a television studio environment, we have a set that is used for multiple shows, and each show is a single cue in a cuelist and attached to a playback button.
The key lights (x5) are in the cue list for each different show, set at the value that suits the skin tone of the regular panellists.
However - sometimes the panellists will be different and of course need their key lights adjusting away from the recorded values slightly. (typically +/- <10%).
In the past I have just done this by loading the fixture into the programmer and manually tweaking. This is fine, but what would be really nice for simplicity for non-techy operators to adjust is to have each key light also assigned to a fader on the virtual console that reflects the value already.
I tried this with the various modes but couldn’t get one to quite do what I wanted.
A Cuelist meant I had to Play it for it to be active, and then it didn’t reflect its current value - it just went to what was saved into it - which for each show is different of course. I wonder if there is a setting here that would follow the current shows cuelist value?
Inhibitive and Submaster didn’t work as it could only either subtract or add to the value, and I need adjustment in either direction.
It’s almost like I want the fixture itself assigned to the fader, rather than a cuelist type.
Thanks in advance!
