    Hannie, the selection with your method again again stays constant, which of course is the intended function of a shuffle x/y/z seed, although from a visual standpoint of a random effect, you start to see a repeating pattern of the selection order.


    I'm curious if anyone has come up with a way of randomising the seed of shuffle whilst the phaser runs (until MA come up with a way to do this)

    I believe Paul is referring to the selection order changing within the phaser. Yes shuffle changes the selection although it remains the same for the phaser (not random).


    I'm also looking for a way for the the XShuffle/YShuffle/ZShuffle seed to change during the phaser running.

    Hi All,


    I'm looking to recall the BPM from a speedmaster via CMD.

    Is there a way to save the BPM of a speed master to a variable?


    Cheers

    I think its really helpfull to store the programmer directly to a preset.

    I think it is possible to create a plugin for this. Finding which atribute is a what value/preset is easy.


    But the challenging part is to find the grouping/ fixture data. If you select group x and choose a red preset. I think its impossible to retrieve the group x.

    Exactly that, its the retrieval of the group which is tricky from a plugin / macro perspective.

    Hi All,


    Want to start with saying I’m loving the new 1.7 release.


    Does anyone have any experience with programming a complete show with recipes in cues? I use a series of macros in order to achieve a faster approach to populating cue recipe lines with presets and group information,


    In my opinion I feel there is one last piece missing of the perfect recipe workflow which is the ability to store programer input directly to recipe lines.


    Its almost impossible to build looks and store as recipes (at speed) using the current approach. Just having a store option to store as recipe would be a complete game changer.


    Would love to hear other peoples thoughts on this,

    Hi All,


    I'm struggling via CMD to Store and label a new recipe line at the same time.

    The reason I'm trying to label simultaneously as I have no way of knowing the variable of the recipe I just created.

    Code
    Store Cue Part 0. "label" /Merge

    Alternatively if there is a way of finding the highest number of recipe on a selected cue via a variable that would be great too.


    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi Andreas,


    Is it possible to get the preset type stored as a variable also? (for example Dimmer)

    In your previous example the current destination Preset Type isn't in the string.


    Code: commandline variable from the name of current destination example
    CD Preset 1.2
    Lua "SetVar(UserVars(),'TheName', CmdObj().Destination.Name)"
    CD Root
    Label Cue 1 $"TheName"

    Great thank you for explaining the children structure of the destination, I have this working with CD @ in the cmdline.


    I'm trying to change the CD within a macro but its failing to change destination, I would imagine my format is incorrect (example):


    Code
    CD "Admin@ShowData/UserProfiles/Default/Views/ViewName/WindowPresetPool"


    Thank you for your help

    Hi All,


    Does anyone know if WindowScrollPositions is accessible via cmd line, for it wont list the properties of it.


    The full path is Admin@ShowData/UserProfiles/Default/Views/View Name/WindowPresetPool/WindowScrollPositions>

    I'm trying to access the "ScrollV' property.


    Cheers

    Hi All,


    I'm looking for a way of capturing a presets name or preset number x.y via LUA.

    GLADs IntelliVars does the exact "Capture" feature that I'm after although thats only for MA2.


    Does anyone know of a way to store the preset current destination "name" as a variable within MA3?


    Many thanks,

    Morgan

    Selecting Sequence 1 thru does not unselect sequences, in addition to this it will create sequences if there is no sequence stored there already.

    This is the issue I have encountered...


    I feel this is very suboptimal.

    Hi All,

    What is the intended workflow for the selected sequence? Is it meant to be possible to have multiple sequences selected at once? I find the process of unselecting the previous sequence very slow. I’m running MA3 Version 1.5.2.3


    Cheers
