first of all, i tried to use the default chaser of the predefined phasers provided by MALighting but, this one doesn't correspond to what i want to do. It doesn't make a "real" chaser that switches the other fixture on and off.
So I tried to make my own chaser. The idea would be to have, for each measure, a single projector on. I've currently tried :
- Set a phaser to a speed of 60 BPM (to remain consistent with the others already built. All these phasers are then combined in a single sequence called DimFX).
- Set step 1 with Dimmer attribute to 100.
- Set the size of step 1 to 50%.
- Set step 2 with Dimmer attribute to 0.
- Set step 2 size to 50%.
- Transition, acceleration and deceleration are set to 0 (square shape).
- Finally, I set the phaser to a measure of 1.
However, I don't know why, when I assign this preset to a sequence (via a recipe) and apply a phaser 0 Thru 360, I don't end up with what I want at all.
I can't see what I'm missing. Is this not possible with phasers? I must admit I'm still having a bit of trouble mastering the notion of width on steps. Maybe I'm missing something? I did see this post, but since then I'm not sure if it's still valid, as phaser has evolved quite a bit since then.
