  • Hey all,


    today I encountered a weird bug regarding the parameter count and the “Universal” fixture.

    I made a short video to demonstrate. Hopefully someone can explain why this is happening.

  • The bug is that you should not be able to delete the universal fixture type.


    The "Used Parameters" count includes virtual parameters (such as virtual dimmers for LEDs that don't have a real dimmer attribute) and parameters for the global fixtures of each fixture type in your show. Not all of them count against your license though. To see how many parameters are actually being counted against your license you can look at the {DMX Universes} menu in Patch / Live Patch and find the "Coarse Params" column.
