I was thinking how to speedup preperation of your show with a startup file. I came with the following idea. I'm sorry if someone already came up with something simulair.
What if, it would be possible to record values that are applied to fixture groups and parts of it. Instead of applying it directly to fixtures.
Then you would be able to only change the fixture group; odd/even or rows/columns and group parts like devided by 4, in order to update your cuelists.
This would speed up preparing your show massively. Think of combining this with presets.
Updating strobe chases/position chases/int-zoom chases, name it, that has 3/4+ steps would be a very easy.
Or changing the fixture order will update delays.
Ofcourse there will be many difficulties, how to prevent errors. But it is a start to open a discussion.
I'm curious what you think. And if this fits the vision of Martin?
Let me know what you think?
