Store fixture selection in preset?

Is it possible to store a fixture selection as a preset somehow?

Let’s say I have an effect that requires the 6 fixtures to be selected as: 1,2,3,6,5,4 and then a bunch of other fx parameters on top of that. Imagine I have a lot of different effect presets that all require the fixtures to be selected in a certain way.

Is it somehow possible to just store the fixture selection order as a preset somehow?

So when I arrive on site and clone in 12 fixtures I don’t have to locate all of the effect presets and update them with the new fixture selection order, which would be in this example: 1,2,3,4,5,6,12,11,10,9,8,7

Hello @Anton_Lundberg,
Selection order can be stored as a Group in Groups window.

This link should come handy for You:

Wow, how stupid of me not to think about Groups.
Thank you!

…unfortunately it didn’t work the way i hoped =\

Sure, i can save a selection of 123654 as a group, and have a preset use that group for FX selection.

But after cloning new fixtures in, I still have to update each preset that refers to a selection group, after updating the group selections. Which means more work, instead of less =\

Or am I missing something cruical here?

Its the way the console is designed. Groups do not reference into programming. Presets do.

Ok… is there some other way to accomplish what I want to do?

After further investigation i realized that it’s not possible to achieve what i want to achieve within Onyx.
However, using RD/ShowCockpit and it’s LUA script makes it possible! (if you have some basic programming skills)

A tutorial regarding LUA-script with M-PC: (however only supported in older versions of Onyx - not with Dylos).
