Without wishing to confuse things further...I thought you could, BUT only if you were willing to loose the internal cache?

The point Nic was making about using a personality (ie not a dimmer) is that the machine (specifically a hazer) could be used LTP. Dial in the value and leave it...hazer levels are unlikely to change throughout a show; plus you save one, probably two handles. Obviously with a smoke machine, it needs...

Pearl(2004) Disk Drive...

I have always found the Pearl disk drive to be a little unreliable and as a result keep multiple backups of important stuff. Just recently things seem to be getting worse, with new disk related problems occuring... "can not initialize disk system" being a new one and corrupted show names b...

Here I believe it is an unfortunate glitch sometimes seen with mode2. It is known that some or all fixtures can occasionally ignore a mode2 command (just by fader) and similarly that the value could stick. Is this also the reason for Martin Atomics 'sticking', which has been discussed on a number o...

Odd Pearl/ACDI/Vis behaviour

I've always found the ACDI and Vis link to be a bit (!) temperamental - it would often need resetting, but during some pre-programming I noticed that when the link had stalled, if I went into the desk User Settings (and without changing anything) it would resume, come out of User Settings it would s...

My memory is not what it used to be - lots of fragmentation going on! - so it's probable that I'm making it up (moving a fixture to a new handle) and things getting mixed up over time with re-patch. Anyway, pondering over why a non-working function may have existed doesn't seem good use of our time ...

Thanks Nic!

Presumably the option to move a fixture to another handle was in an older software version. Which is why I remember using it and (more confusingly) why it's still mentioned in the manual :shock:

Cheers,

Re Patch fixture

I would be most grateful if someone could confirm this issue I've recently revisited. For a long time I assumed that <Re Patch fixture> only worked for fixtures and NOT dimmers - the function is called Re patch fixture and not re patch dimmer after all. With all the talk of re patching dimmers in th...

IIRC there is a bug (2004 V1.2) that can corrupt (some) palettes if you delete by SWOP, so it's safest to delete by DMX channel.

I tried to find the post that detailed this but couldn't...

Hi, When I needed to make up my cable Alwyn sent me a link that has the pinouts for all the New Sketch tablets, however I can't find it now and I don't think it's in the public area of the Avo site. PM him and I'm sure he will oblige. (Alwyn is a moderator, you can PM him from the Broad Index) Perha...
