Preview function to change phaser

  • Hi Forum,


    In version 1.7 the preview functionally has been introduced which creates a new programmer but does not output to dmx.

    This can be used to edit phasers on the fly. For example consider the following macro to change the speed of a phaser:


    Code
    Preview
    Edit Preset 23.2021
    Select Attribute Dimmer
    Measure 10
    Update /NoConfirm
    Preview

    It works but I'm doubting if this is a good practice?

    Has anyone an opinion about this?

  • The difference with blind mode is that it will stop outputting the current programmer values.

    In a busking scenario were some values are added to the programmer you don't want these to stop outputting for a sec while preset is modified.

    The preview function is more safe as it creates a "second" programmer.

    This could be a reason to use the preview over blind.
