Why is the shutter/strobe parameter of fixtures in the library per default set to snap? I would like to be able to increase or decrease the speed of the strobing in a fade cue.
I know there a few fixtures where this is not possible, because other functions are shared on the same dmx channel. But in general I think the default should be set to fade instead of snap when possible.
Hello! You should be able to edit most existing fixture to remove the snap.We default to snap on this parameter to due to response from customers that they had wanted it this way for most fixtures.
Can I bump this question?
Anyone who could answer this question from the library department of ETC? Right now I am making custom fixtures for everything that has a strobe, which is a bit tedious. I want to be able to gradually increase the speed of the strobing. saranow
Hello! Sorry for the delay. I am looking into this and will see what I can find for you.
Thanks, I knew how to edit the fixtures, but I wanted to know if it was by design or not and why the choice was made. So now I know, partly. My preference would have been otherwise. I guess it is more due to the limitations of old fixtures then a real preference (as I see no advantage in having the strobe rate step instead of fade), if it can’t be changed globally I will have to edit all my fixtures. So be it.
