Universal dimmer preset are weird on fixtures with subfixtures

  • Hello,

    I am currently programming a show using Ayrton MagicBlade R.

    Suppose I am doing a simple dimmer phaser on two MagicBlade (step 1 at 100, step 2 at 0).

    If I store the phaser as a selective preset, everything is fine.

    However, if I store it as a universal preset (which I would like, since I want to use the same dimmer effects on all my fixtures) something weird happens when I apply it to the MagicBlades: it is also applied to the subfixtures! In the attached showfile, you can see it by looking at the DMX values (every R, G, B, W components are also scaled down).

    It changes a bit the lighting curve so we might say that it's not a big deal, however the real problem comes when we are starting to use MAtricks: changing the phase only impacts the fixtures and not the subfixtures, which make the effect completely different on the universal preset and the selective preset.

    Is this the intended behavior? I'm not liking it much, since it forces me to use different selective dimmer presets for the MagicBlades.

    You can see the example showfile here: SubFixturesBug.zip.

    I am using GrandMA3 onPC on Windows 10.
