ONYX Beta 1202 (replaced with 1203)

The next Beta is avalable. This adds a 3 preset mode (Black/White and adjustable Grey), improves blending from regualar to Dylos values and further improves the capture 2D Plan import.

Are there any videos or details of how to make the new DYLOS beta mapping things work? I’ve tried the 1200 and 1202 betas, but I cannot get Dylos to actually affect any fixtures in the zone. I think I’m not managing to map Dylos to anything, but I can’t for the life of me work out how to make it work.

Hello Guys

After studying this new mapping option a lot and looking in many ways to use it as a substitute for the FX engine, and many things that have been requested there, I would like to ask you, in the option of generators, add something much simpler

this, a generator, with the option to Bounce, go from right to left and return, from the center to the outside and return, and the already known options of adding more or less lines, or playing with the grays, I think that with this, we could momentarily give option to the most used fx timings

Another detail is that it is increasingly difficult to work with the current programming screen when there is a lot of information in it, there is a gigantic Lag,

a Cant see fixtures in the combined windows in the 2D plan

I would suggest more flexibility wit generator ,chance to alter shapes and gradients something that in this case make smoother and very particular movements!

hello again, is there a video/ tutorial for how to use the new features in onyx beta?




Import patch not working at all!

Importing a patch from huge stages from Capture ,seems that the 2d plan isn’t able to zoom out enough! so at this point it’s really unconfortable to use!
In this picture I am missing fixtures on top, bottom, left,right etc… can we have a greater zoom in zoom out?

couldnt agree more. It would be good if we could set a scale Dont need the rig 1:1… It would be good if i could get the 12m wide lighting bars zoomed in so the icons are almost touching in the 2d view.

Also if there are fixtures that are patched to the same dmx address then onyx unpatches them. Is there a way in the import that it allows them? I have house lights and a few parcans with the same dmx address but different id numbers. In the future they will have different dmx addresses just not now due to other venue limitations.

DYLOS windows resize some times its freeze

artnet not send data frames - only artpool
resolvet - turn off / on artnet.

I have problem to delete unused dylos zone.
this is my test show.

Add please a 1 or 2 or 3 shot capability in the next version! so we can have a bigger and wider use of the Dylos as an fx generator !

While we’re improving on matching fixture types, you can still match the types up manually by selecting the “Onyx Type” column and browse to the correct fixture type.

Any news about updating some normal features in ONYX? cause it seems to much concentration only on Dylos based things.
This question is just for infos about what’s gonna happen with ols issues! I would also like some 2d plan icons,for sure a better fx engine preset based, Larger windows with more readble text,more Macros etc, Thanx just to know this is not a CRITIC but just need to understand where you guys want to go! = )

+1 with this :pray:

Maybe you could tell us a roadmap, we are about to finish the year and we did not see nothing outside of dylos

Let us store a cue using Captures “snapshots” directly in Onyx.

Can you Add “Mirroring way” in Generators?

Agree with comments above regarding the real need for an update/roadmap for non-dylos features. The basic enhancements that would make working with Onyx on a daily basis so much more productive.

Have asked a few times for this, but as yet haven’t had any reply. You’re very busy with Dylos and doing a great job, but concerened that core features are being overlooked.
