Position Presets ignored after Control Preset activated (Ayrton Magic Dot SX)

  • I'm a beginner grandma3 user and have the following issue:

    • Programmed a few POSITION presets where the Dots move to specified positions.
    • Programmed a CONTROL preset, which sets PAN Rotate and TILT Rotate to a slow speed, so the Dots rotate around their axes.
    • Programmed another CONTROL preset, which sets PAN Rotate and TILT Rotate to STOP.

    I move the Dots to a position by selecting a POSITION preset. Then I activate PAN and TILT rotation by selecting the corresponding CONTROL preset. The Dots start to circle as intended. Next I stop the rotation by selecting the corresponding CONTROL preset.

    However, when I select a POSITION preset next, it is ignored. The Dots do not move to the programmed positions.

    Any idea, what I might do wrong or misunderstand?

  • Hello Ralf,

    the for your behavior is that the P/T rotate priority in the fixture might be higher then the one of P/T. You should off the Control channel (choose the off value of that corresponding attribute). Then you will be able to use the position presets again. An other way, which is a bit more difficult, you must move the P/T rotation out of Control to Position. But due to are a beginner, this is nothing for start cause you have to modify the GDTF of that fixture.
