Phase Master

Postby Bart K » 18 Feb 2019, 21:02

Hey guys,

Maybe a simple question but I can't find it...

Where can I find the ''phase master''?
When I create an effect in the shapes and effects editor, I saw that I can put a phase master in the shape. If I put the phase master on, the shape stops moving.
Also when I record the shape to a playback, the shape won't move.

Is there anything I miss? I would like to have something to change the phase (or spread) live in my show. Or is there a better/quicker way to do this. Except for recording 10 tilt shapes with different spreads.

I hope someone could help me.

Thanks anyway!

The Phase Master is part of the ground work for Synergy, when it is enabled the position/phase of the shape is controlled by video content running on an Ai Server. However I am not sure if this functionality has been fully enabled in currently released software.

Other possibilities that you could try now include using shape palettes with just the spread/phase information recorded in them (to record: create a shape, set the phase/spread then press [Off] to disable the pattern). Another option would be to connect to the shape live ([Connect] + [Shape]) and just the values on the wheels (or by typing new values) however note that this will change the values stored in the original cue.

Hey Gregory,

Thanks for your answer.

Your idea with the [off] button works, thanks! But only when I select a group and then select the shape + spread information in the 'shape and effects' window.
So when I clear the programmer, the shapes stops. Obvious.

When I record a shape from the 'shape and effects' window in to a playback, turn it on, select a spread information, it won't work.
Is the spread information only available in the programmer?

I searched for something like this for a long time. I try to get my showfile more professionel and more varation of shapes in less faders and buttons. To be a lot quicker live when the show runs.

I hoop u can help me, thanks anyway!
