ASCII import cues informations

  • Hi,

    how can I import cues informations from a third part show (ETC eos for example). I know how to do it on ma2 but could not find it on ma3 onPC. As I have a venue with a lot of guests shows this feature is determinant for purchasing ma3 or not as main light desk. Bests regards

  • Hi Jerome,
    ASCII import is currently not implemented in grandMA3. Another thing which is work in progress is to store the DMX input - this is going to be implemented in one of the next versions.

    But maybe you can get in contact with your local distributor. They can help you to transfer at least patch and fixture type information depending on your show.

  • Thanks for the quick answer. Unfortunatly for the case of theater venues, the main sequence informations with intensity timing and text is the most important thing to import and is mostly the only information set that can be reused and that save a lot of programming time to import. Fixtures types, presets and patch has to be adapted to the material of the host venue and need manual work anyway. dimmer curves and multi-patch is the key feature that is missing as well for the moment and that is absolutely necessary for touring in different venues with different material. Best regards

  • Nothing has been implemented yet regarding ASCII import (could in theory ASCII import into MA2 and then convert to MA3). However, it is now possible to record DMX Input. Dimmer Curves and Multi-Patch have also been implemented.
