What am I doing wrong? After watching some tutorials, I made independent FX speed and size override faders by doing the following : Selected all moving head fixtures, linked pan/tilt attributes, adjusted the value on swing pan & swing tilt (touched nothing else), then hit record and recorded an Override fader. I did the same for my FX speed override by only touching the FX speed. Both faders operate as expected and scale the P/T shapes and speed of the FX when I raise them. However, I then made a position preset for some of the fixtures which in turn I placed in a cue. I even recorded the pan and tilt swing within that preset to STOP. Now, when I raise the FX masters for Size and Speed, and then choose any cue that has a static position preset, it is causing those movers to move with the other fixtures???
EDIT #1 - I just played around a bit more and got closer but still not there. I changed my static position cue to also be an override instead of a cuelist type. That successfully caused the cue to stay in place. I then noticed that if I pull down the fader for my size FX master override and then restart it (raise it again), it causes the static position cue to start moving again. Obviously it is “overriding” the static cue override so as long as I don’t need to stop and restart the size FX master, I am ok but I know the end users will do just that from time to time.
EDIT #2 - Getting a little further along… I changed the priority levels of the static override cues which now cause the fixtures to hold their positions correctly. I then added a blank second cue to each of the static position override cues so that I can toggle those cues off and release the fixtures back into the FX pattern being generated by the FX size and speed masters. This leaves me with one remaining issue : The cues I am working with are on the playback page for the end user. Since there is no “toggle” option for the static position cue buttons when they are assigned as override type, the little play arrow in the corner of the cue stays ON. When I choose between the multiple static cues, the play arrow stays lit on all the static cues and you can’t determine which one is actually active (pressed last). I even added Macros to each of those override cuelists (5 of them) with a “release” and then “cuelist #” for each of the other static cues . I also noticed that even if use a Macro of “Release this Cuelist”, it doesnt even shut the play button off on that button itself.
