Hi NK "Nick"
about your Circle with 3 groups. create one with all your fixture's. whit phase you can solve it and store it in your Position presets.
this will help you , i'm pretty sure. FX can be stored as a preset. Cool thing to create your favorite moves and color FX.
Predefined 1/3 macro and so on:
store a exec. without any information in the programmer, just empty.
edit the exec and go to the "CMD" and time there "interleave 1.3"
set the exec as a "flash" button.
