I'm trying to create an effect where my LEDs "wipe" a color change across the stage - from warm to cool or vice versa.
I've gotten so close with an absolute effect simply shifting from the background state to a color palette. I've reduced it to a cycle of 1, and I want it to stop and hold after wiping across all the fixtures in the group. I've played with the grouping in the effect so that 4 or 5 lights (an upstage/downstage column of instruments, essentially) shift at a time.
It's working well, except the first channel in the group reverts to the background state instead of stopping and holding in the color palette state. It's driving me crazy - no matter what I change in the effect, that first channel always reverts, rather than holding!
I'm working mostly in Nomad with Augment3d - I tried it on my rig today, and it's doing exactly what I'm seeing in Augment3d (good job, augment3d).
What am I missing??
Attaching my eos file. I'm using group 4 and effect 1. I place group 4 in color palette 3, then run effect 1. It cycles them through to color palette 1 and then channel 52 pops back to background. grrrrrrr...
I've also tried manipulating the timing of the effect in cues 6 through 8, I think, to stop the effect before that first channel pops back to background.
HELP!! I go into tech on Friday and really want to have this effect worked out - I think it'll be the basis of many of our scene transitions.
