Excluding a set of fixtures from a swop

Postby samrbradley » 29 Jan 2019, 16:34

Hi - this is my first post so apologies if it's a repeat or if it's in the wrong place!

I have 2 rows of 5 Chauvet intimidator spots and some house LEDs around the edges of the room I'm operating in. I've got a tilt playback for the Intimidators and odd/even fixture intensities set on 2 faders. The idea being that the odd and even beams tilt in opposite directions and as different colours. That works great.

The thing is, I don't get the best effect from this unless I swop the odd and even fixtures, which obviously turns off the house LEDs. These LEDs are the only light the bar has in my venue so I'm looking for a way of swopping the Intimidator tilts without turning off the LEDs?

Thanks :D

Assuming you're using Titan set the playback(s) containing the house LED intensity to a higher priority than the spot intensity playbacks. For example [Playback Options], <select house LED playback>, [Playback], toggle [Priority] to [Priority High].

Hello,

changing the priority doesn't seem to work for me.
What I want to achieve is a simple "Swop Protect" just like on MA consoles.
That would be great to have this possibility on a Playback without dealing with Priority...

My case scenario is as follow:
I am working with Titan Mobile, running Titan v.11

I've recorded a Strobe effect on one of the Static Playbacks buttons ("Workspaces, Macro and Executers" zone).
To achieve what I wanted I had to :
- make and assign a "Static Playback Swop" key profile (for cues, Latch=Swop)
- Release mask: Intensity
- Release Time: 0s
This Strobe effect is working as expected.

Some house lights are on another static playback button.
When I turn the priority of this playback to its highest value, these lights are still affected by the swop.

Is there a way to do this or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Everything sounds correct and this works when I test. Note that if the house light playback is active when you change the priority you need to kill and refire before it obeys the new priority.

That's correct! That was it. Now it works.

The addition of a "Swop Protect" option on the Playbacks would be welcome since playing with priority has some drawbacks.
Example: I want to slightly adjust the said houselight and update the playback where it is recorded. Using the higher priority, I can't physically see what I'm doing with the programmer.

Anyway, thank you !

The programmer should still take priority unless the playback priority is set to 'Very High'. However, I do agree it would be useful to have a separate option if for no other reason than to make it simpler. This would probably also raise the question whether there should be a separate 'exclude from crossfade HTP' (mode 3).
