I have noticed that enabling Q-Blender does not actually stop the fader from fading the entire cue.
For example, say I record two cues, one with a fixture’s intensity at 5% when the fader is between 0 and 50, and a second cue where the fixture’s intensity is at 15% from 50 to 100.
What I expect is that the fixture leaps to 5% as soon the fader position moved up above the deadzone (3%) and stays at 5% all the way to fader position reaches 50%. As the fader position is moved above 50%, the fixture’s intensity climbs to 15% proportional to fader position.
What I actually see is that the fixture starts at 0% as the fader position moved up above the deadzone (3%) and increases slowly to 5% proportional to fader position as the fader position reaches 50%. As the fader position is moved above 50%, the fixture’s intensity climbs more rapidly to 15% proportional to fader position.
It seems like the fader it still multiplying the intensities in a Q-Blender cue. This seems undesirable by design; in a Q-Blender cue, the fader’s position should not have a direct effect on values and only set the fade position between cues.
Is this how Q-Blender is intended to work? Have I set the cue up wrong?
