We are in version 3.0033, and the effects are still unusable.
Already reported from several versions (so several months)Indeed, on a cue, when, for example, we add an intensity effect on a device in particular when we touch the "FAN" parameter, we do a live update.
As soon as we recall the cue it loses its position, its Beam ... etc ... in addition to the effect.Very easy to reproduce, on a blank project with just two devices.I spend hours trying to work around this problem on my cues.
Where are you ? It would be good that after three years of Beta, we arrive at something reliable.
Thank you and best wishes for this new year.
I have taken a look at this one again with your additional information from this post. I was able to reproduce a Color Issue following the steps you provided (just adding an effect and Update Live Cue is enough to trigger the issue - Fan alteration is not required). I have not yet been able to reproduce any other parameters (Focus or Beam) being altered in these steps. This is only occurring in v.3.0.0 and I am not seeing it in any version going back to v.1.1.4. Any additional steps to reproduce this on other parameters would be helpful. Here are the steps I took to see the issue:
Test: Patch Two VL3500 Fixtures to Channels 1+2
Good news, I hope you find a fix for this.Indeed, at that time I was talking about the problem of colors on effects, but there I spent more than an hour trying to fix an identical problem but on device positions on an effect.I don't know if you can imagine the number of manipulations to understand why and when it loses the information.In my memory, the problem also existed in 2.xx (see my message on 25 jan 2019 "New versions in progress ?")In 1.xx, I will not be able to say, I did not stay long in this version.Thanks
Hey PBo67 would you send me your latest showfile? We found something we would like to test against your file.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !
The file is here :
A first video exemple here :exemple on CUE 15, look device 37
A second exemple hère: Exemple on CUE 35 look on device 40
A third exemple here: Exemple on CUE 35, with other save method , look device 40
Another video, from the Colorsource simulator, with the same project, same CUE, same device.
You will notice that the device goes to the "modified" position, and return to the previous position !
Thank you PBo67! We think we have found the issue and have submitted it to the Development Team. The extra details have been super helpful! Happy New Year!
Glad to see you're making some progress on this. This caused me a lot of problems on a previous show. On a related note, has there been any progress on effects crossfades? I was just working on some cues today where I wanted to gradually increase the speed of an intensity effect, and while the gradual rate increase worked, it also caused the fixtures to have a base level intensity above 0 (looked about 50%) during the cross fade.
Can you tell me, the state of play on this problematic subject. Is there any patch planned ?
Hi PBo67 we are just starting Closed Beta which addresses this issue and others. If anyone else is interested in testing please let me know.
I'd be interested in that. Is there a changelog available?
Hi Pwsimonton it looks like you are already setup. Please visit the forum for the post.
Excellent, I have the opportunity to test this this weekend.
