I'm having an issue, which is also the same in 3.1
When selecting a range of cues in blind, and toggling channels to enable XYZ mode, if channels have a mix of absolute and reference data between cues, enabling XYZ mode seems to actually be changing the values of pan and tilt. I thought the XYZ mode toggle would not result in data change.
I have been trying but am not able to replicate this issue. You're correct that toggling between XYZ and Pan/Tilt should not change the actual output (which is DMX values for the Pan and Tilt parameters).
Would you be able to provide a small showfile (just a channel and some cues) that shows this happening?
Yes I can send you a file, and some screen caps, how would you like me to send them?
Would you please email me directly? mattp @ etcconnect.com
Hi MK Lighting , thank you for sending me the showfile. I was able to reproduce the issue both in your file and from scratch, so I filed [EOS-53360] Toggling XYZ Format on a range of cues with tracks causes fixtures to change pan/tilt output
This issue is new to v3.1.0 / v3.1.1. (It was difficult to toggle XYZ in blind across a range of cues in v3.0.2, but I did not see the same issue there).
For the time being, I will recommend that you toggle between XYZ and Pan/Tilt only at the Move Instruction cues (where XYZ or P/T values are blue or green), and avoid doing it on long ranges of cues. Tracking does correctly follow that individual change - it gets weird / wrong when toggling across a Move Instruction cue.
