    Here is an example of the macro I call in de cdm field of the cue containing the recipe to set the width of the first step of the corresponding phaser. Its annoying that it runs through the programmer and i agree totally that since the step width is so important to build your phasers it should be somehow possible to set this not using the programmer and setting phaser parameters should become part of the recipe ecosystem? Anyway, here's my workaround:


    Blind ClearAll

    Edit Preset 21."SpotMetaPhaser"

    Attribute dimmer At Width 50 Step 1

    Attribute ColorRGB_R At Width 50 Step 1

    Attribute ColorRGB_G At Width 50 Step 1

    Attribute ColorRGB_B At Width 50 Step 1

    Update Preset 21."SpotMetaPhaser" /NoConfirm

    ClearAll

    Blind Off


    If someone could help me to write an macro that sets the width of all parameters all at once I would be super happy...


    Andreas helped me and now my macro looks like this:


    Blind ClearAll

    Edit Preset 21."SpotMetaPhaser"

    Set UserProfile 1 Property "EncoderLinkPhaser" "AtFilter"

    At Width 33 Step 1

    Update Preset 21."SpotMetaPhaser" /NoConfirm

    Set UserProfile 1 Property "EncoderLinkPhaser" "Single"

    ClearAll Blind Off


    Thank again Adreas! ^^ :thumbup:

    Guys,


    Some input on step width vs phase.


    If I want to make a odd even dimmer chase using my template 2 step phaser, I keep the step width of 1 and 2 of the template phaser at 100%. In MAtricks I add a grouping of 2. Then I apply a phase of 0 thru 360. The transition time of both the steps determines the fade time.


    If I want to make a 1 in 3 dim chase I change the step width of step 1 to 50% and step 2 I leave at 100%. In MAtricks I add a grouping of 3. Then I apply a phase of 0 thru 360.

    This way the width of step 1 and 2 combined can be divided by 3. 50% + 100% results in 50% step width for each of the 3 steps. For a 1 in 4 chase, I set step 1 to 33%. And so on. You get the point. No complicated phaser calculations needed. It just works with a phase of 0 thru 360. And I even believe every phaser distribution works. --> I just checked this last part and its not true! Using this step width method you must always use a phase of 0 thru 360 to achieve a 1 in x chase.


    I have a macro which I trigger in the cmd field to set the width of the corresponding group (grid) count of the template phaser. When I’m home I’ll share it here. It is simple way to achieve what the op wants as I understand it.


    Sadly the desk does not adapt the phaser and MAtrickt settings when the corresponding group (and thus grid count) is updated.


    If you have found a simple solution for that. I would love to hear it…
