I noticed the following problems with the new offset function in patch:
1) Offset can only be set in percent or hex not in physical values (which is the only thing that makes sense to me)
2) Only positive offsets can be assigned (Had a group of fixtures yesterday that were pointing 90 degrees to the right without offset. The only way to offset them in a way so that they pointed correctly was by offsetting them by 270 degree (instead of - 90) which meant there was no pan-range left - makes the whole thing kinda pointless
3) Offsetting fixtures also affect their rotations in 3d. Doesn't make any sense to me.
Am I doing something wrong? Never have understand why it took so long to implement such a basic feature and now that it's there it's still completely useless in my eyes.
I found so many bugs in 1.5. within minutes - please let me know if I can help you out beta-testing for future versions - don't mean it passive-aggressively!
I'm a big fan of MA but getting a bit frustrated here.
