i came over something.
I have a submaster with some dimmers on it.
If i pull the Submaster @40 (for example) and than add an absolute FX with 'Background->@+/20' (+20%), the background value is 0%. Not the Submaster Value (as expected).
If i start the FX first and than pull the Submaster, i can alter the runnning FX.
The Desk is than taking the Submaster level as Background Value.
Why? And is there a way around it?
We stumbled over it while doing a impro/busking scene.

i want to add something.
The FX i talked about was a AbsoluteFX.
I tryed today a Relative(Linear)FX and it worked...
Don't ask my why, but it did.
I also noticed:
If i pull my Sub, add the RelativeFX and than hit the Group/Assert Button of the Submaster, it will work as well.
But the Group/Assert Button is only a bad work around, since the false-FX-action makes every channel 0 rather quick.
I was looking at this today in v2.9.1 and I agree the behavior you are seeing in terms of Sub is not background unless it is added after the FX is running-- but I am seeing the same behavior for relative and for absolute FX. I also noted it occurs even when sub is set to Background DISABLE.I will see if I can find some time to test in v3.0.0 also-- but in the meantime do you have a file you can share with me with sub # and FX number?
Here we go.
I supported you with Snapshot1 as well, wich has all you need to play on 1 Screen, if you like to...
I made 3 FX. each one behaves different in the beginning. They are also labled.

Hope it is clear and ok organised.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you so much for all your time in helping us understand this. We are writing this bug up for a fix in a future software release.
