Re: Stars generator

One advantage of using the keyframe method is guaranteeing single whole pixels Really? Somehow this didn't work for me when I tried something else. Setting the spread to the number of fixtures (I didn't use fixtures with cells) and direction to random gave me an ugly looking effect... Well, it's go...

Re: Symmetrical effects

Again a reason to finally implement relative values in key frame shapes. Together with release frames (similar to cue release for chases) this would finish the ley frame feature and we could kill the generic shape generator (including the shapes as presets for KFS). The shape generator has done an ...

Re: Stars generator

One advantage of using the keyframe method is guaranteeing single whole pixels which is not so easy with pixel mapping. Even though there is now the grid fit animation that did not exist when I originally wrote the randomising example it is fiddly and when I last tried I gave up as I could not get s...

Re: Symmetrical effects

That wouldn't be a circle though. And while it is possible to make a circle using key frame it is much harder and it would also be absolute so you couldn't apply it around an existing position.

Re: Symmetrical effects

To get a symmetrical circle reverse the shape and set the phase offset to 180° on the fixtures that are being mirrored. You can use this in conjunction with spread and fixture order etc. but the fundamentals are the reverse and phase offset. Use the [Restart Shapes] option in the shape gen menu to r...

Re: Titan personality for EUROLITE LED Pixel Tube 360°

You can change functions of one control depending on another by using conditions. For examples take a look at the gobos in a typical moving spot (usually fixed/shake/scroll).

Re: Titan personality for EUROLITE LED Pixel Tube 360°

I don't have the time to go into the details of how to create a personality for this at the moment but if you submit a new request via the form on the personality website here I will arrange to add a personality to the library for you. From a factory personality perspective I would probably look to ...

Re: Programming/Effects on new lamp ADJ 32 Hex panel help

You could try using key frame shapes. This will rely on the group layout so you might want to adjust this first. Then [Shapes And Effects], [Key Frame Shape], [Create], <select group>, <set 100% white values>, [Add Frame], <set 5% blue values>, [Add Frame], [Finish Recording Frames]. Then in the Eff...

Re: Personalities with fractional values only load in same version.

Firstly, on behalf of software I would like to thank you for taking the time to investigate and report this. I thought that was very well described and understood in depth. From what I can gather the software appears to be adding an extra .0 to the display range in the xml part of the showfile when ...

Re: Show incompabilty after update from 11. to 11.3

I think the error message could perhaps be more helpful here. Are you trying to load an autosave? Autosaves are compact versions for efficiency and are not compatible across versions. Initial and Quick save should be ok. If you are using an Autosave and need that then the solution is to revert to th...

Re: Channels details before patching

Unfortunately there is no way to do this within the Titan UI at the moment. I agree it would be useful in some circumstances though and has been mentioned before. Hopefully it is something that will be possible in a future version. In the meantime if you have access to the internet then the easiest ...

Re: Overriding a chase with another one

Turn on playback option Cross Fade HTP in the cue with the two-step chase. For this to work it is important that all of the steps in both chases have zero values explicitly recorded for the pars in the off states. So in the four-step chase step 1 = 1@ full, 2@0, 3@0, 4@0, step 2 = 1@0, 2@full, 3@0, ...

No, unfortunately this is not currently possible. They are both xml but have different structures. Perhaps you could contact MA and request?

Re: missing beams in capture

Are you certain the Visualiser Dmx Output is turned on in DMX Settings? I only ask because you mentioned this. Normally you would not need to adjust it as it is turned on by default and highlighting in Capture but no beams sounds like it is turned off.

Re: Soundguy ha ha

You either need Titan Simulator or TitanOne both of which are installed as part of Titan PC Suite. Both options should appear in the start menu under Avolites. If you want to output to fixtures and have the dongle connected you should use TitanOne. If you do not have the dongle connected you can use...
