Layout - indicating dimmer at full all the time

  • Hi,

    some fixture types are displayed with the dimmer at full all the time, no matter what the dimmer level actually is.

    I've encountered strange response on a layout with some fixtures assigned to a layout. First case was Robe Spiider in modes 2, 3 and 4, so I thought this is pretty complex GDTF that needs to be written for this fixture and then read by the console, but then I've found out the same behaviour with pretty simple generic fixture Blinder x8-2 imported from MA library with just the dimmer channel.

    Thanks for a response, MA team.

  • The layout view will show the Dimmer for the parent fixture.

    If there is no dimmer in the parent it will always be full.

    I edit fixture profiles to default whatever dimmer controls the main beam to full and put a virtual dimmer in the parent.

    Makes for better ‘cloning’ too

    Interesting.

    Can you share with me an example of a fixture profile you've edited?
