I did look and didn't see any articles related to this specific topic, but I apologize if it does exist and I missed it.
I understand the way presets are associated to cues and allow the easy updating of the parameters in the preset to propagate all associated cues. I'm wondering/hoping if the same association does/can exist with fixture groups. Meaning, can the fixture group, not the actual fixtures directly, be associated to the cues.
I do a lot of mobile dj and small/medium production work and my fixtures often change roles depending on the event. For one event, an LED PAR may be used as an uplight, another event it may be a truss warmer, and used as a stage wash in another. I know I can update/change the fixtures in the group, but unless I'm missing something, that only helps if I'm busking. It would be awesome if a defined fixture group (i.e. Uplights, Trusses, Stage Wash, Crowd Wash, etc.) could be what is tied to a cue, rather than the actual fixture. That would make it easy to update for each show, much like can be done with presets. If this can already be done, I'm eager to learn. Thank you.
