Where can I find a bunch of already created templates of effects for the ETC ION that I can just import into the consule via a flash drive? I am having a hard time creating them on our console.
What kind of thing are you trying to do as you probably just needs some hints as to how to get started setting up an effect rather than trying to have something pre built.
I do not know if the following answers your question exactly. But try to copy as much as possible so that it takes as less time as possible.
For example if you need a ramp for intensity, copy effect 900 and higher, there you can find a lot. Just scroll thru them. Double click effect button, type in 901 enter and use the next key to watch the next one.
Create presets or pallets for absolute effects. Just create effects for only one parameter and combine them later. For example I order them in 1xx is Int, 2xx is Focus, 3xx is Color and so on, so that you directly know what effect to search for and then you can copy an existing for changing Grouping. For example you have a focus effect that moves tilt up and down in a period of 2 seconds. All fixtures together. Named Tilt UpDown 2s G1. Now you can create one named Tilt UpDown 2s G4 meaning that the fixtures running this effect are splittet into four groups running within a phase.
I hope this helps you ;)
I wish it was that easy on an ION. Nothing about an ION is easy we are learning. I will pay for a bunch of fx templates because we cannot figure out how to make some.
it is really simple...what have you tried, what didn't work and most importantly what are you trying to achieve?
Did you have a look at this?
