The new button in rigthbottom screen are really cool and usefull.
Thanks for that gui improvement.

In the beta 1203 when importing all the patch from capture in Onyx ,I am having an issue with the represantion of the stage in the 2d Plan. What I have noticed, is that when dealing with huge stages, I always need to move the plan around to be able to select all the rest of my fixtures that are not visible in the plan. This happens because I suppose we are missing a wider" zoom in and out "option. I will post some Pictures to help you see better!

1.A NEW STAGE WITH LED BARS 2020+musicians.c2p (3.4 MB)

Hi to all!
This morning import is not working with a recent show file from Capture if I scan I can see all fixtures ,but the import doesn’t seem to work at all!
Please look at the message underneath in picture 2 with a message regarding the plot.
Thanx Latest beta version obviously!


Can you add a feature like remove all user media?
It would be nice to have this feature to start a clean library, otherwise it happens like in my case,that you import the new on top of the old ,but when you load less media than the ones before ,you still got the old ones at the end ! = )

Question about “CTRL C + CTRL V+ CTRL Z + CTRL Y” is it complicated to integrate these short cuts features for copying fixture attributes and all the rest that is possible etc…?

i cant delete mtouch 11 on this screen view
i cant control all 11-20 (edit run delete etc)

when i use right side buttons on m-touch - led feedback not working - not update status on fader.

i use copy to test faders & buttons

old problem (for me)
fader led feedback update status

when i control fader from m-play or m-play on screen - all is ok - is realtime update

when i control fader from m-touch or m-touch on screen - fader status on screen or other controller is updated when i get finger from fader (not realtime)Untitled_2020-11-22_1840_Build_4_5_1203_0.OnyxShow (3.3 MB)

Clean library already exists: in the menu, navigate to System, Tools, Maintenance. Press the Erase button next to “Erase DyLOS Content Cache”, it will present some scope options first

Anyway THANX Gert!

I just checked, its where he said it is. Go to tools then maintenance. You are in load and save.

You didn’t read the bottom! =)

I’m liking the intensity mode option for the mapping slot!

Hi, for some reason Avast antivirus on my laptop always seems to complain about the Onyx installer. Is that a known thing?

When changing presets, nothing shows up untill there is a change in intensity or position in the mapping slot, can this be change to have the changes happen when the preset(s) are changed? Can presets A, B and C be a fade channel? They are snapping features at the moment

Avast causes a lot of issues, also with Netron HTML5 pages. I’d get rid of it and use Windows Defender. Its included with Win10.

Changing value, than selecting a new fixture, should deselected the previous one.

Does reselect work for you?

it does, i think you are seeing this because your value change was from Capture over CITP, not from within Onyx.

Hi to all why can’t this page give us all infos about fixtures and prameters that are parked?

I mean why i need to search in the belts what parameter is parked such a waste of time!

This will change to a “Park Programmer” which will show the exact info.
Currently you can only park full fixtures, not per parameter. Parked fixtures show a “P” on the button.

Nice this will be very cool and usefull! Thanx!
