Remove Shapes for Selected Fixture in RTM: There is currently no way to temporarily remove shapes whilst running a show. This function would be useful for unexpected situations where you may need to override one or more moving fixtures to provide a static light, whilst wanting to keep all other fixt...

Connect to Shapes function. The ability to connect to PB's containing shapes in the same way you can with chases. In doing this the wheels would automatically change to Speed/Size. With the introduction of 'shapes in chases' I would suggest an extra soft-button in the connect menu for 'change wheels...

Pearl Software Wish-List

PEARL 2004 SOFTWARE WISH-LIST CLOSED Sadly the time has come to say goodbye to this thread. Many of these features have found their home in Titan where development continues beyond the limitations of older hardware. Therefore I have created a new Titan-specific requests topic. I will leave this her...

I have never done this myself, but AFAIK you have to create a new file called UC.DAT. Just a simple text file 256 lines long, each line being a number between 0 and 255. Try that and see if it works. I have no idea why it is under 'read FIX.SYS'. The explanation in the old manual was poor, but it is...

There are currently no functions that allow control of shape speed/size other than by fader (using timed+mode 2).
:idea: A useful improvement would be the option to 'connect' to shape faders and have wheel control. It may then be feasible to have a tap convert to a speed value. :idea:

Just dongle. If it says it can't find the dongle search this forum for answers. I have only checked out 2004 sim briefly, but can confirm it works fine with dongle+vis and Patch Invert now works. Woohoo!! Bad news is it was Vis giving me 100% cpu and not the sim :cry: does anyone else get this?

I have done one in Corel Draw format - it was designed to print to A3 acetate.
If that's any use to you, let me know and I will mail it.

Hi, I guess that answers my question in your other post ! No. But it does work very well in 2004 - there are two ways you can make use of it - either have a chase (dimmer / colour etc) running over the top of a shape, ie. a one-fader-does-all, or you can actually chase the shapes themselves. I highl...
