Cloning is the biggest under estimated time saver.
As said it before and I say it again, Once you have a made show with a decent presets layout, you should never have to create a new show again no matter the situation/fixture used.
you want to try it? It's easy,
Take the default training showfile 2016
Unpatch the current fixtures and renumber the ID to let say 1001 and after.
Now add new fixtures of your choice, let say 24 profiles, 24 wash, some RGB, some dimmers
Once patch, use the COPY function to copy exiting data to new fixtures
Example, Copy 1001 THRU 1024 @ 1 THRU 24 ENTER
Now the clone (copy) command is added to the cloning tab.
go to that tab and in the options remove CUELIST and GROUPS if you only want to copy the preset information
Do more copies as desired,,
you can copy one fixture to many, range to range small range to larger range like 1001 thru 1004 to 48 thru 25 and the range will be copy as well as inverted as you said 48 to 25 instead of 25 to 48.
So very flexible....
Have fun and save time!
Multi-part fixtures can be an issue when cloning.
Let say you have fixture #1001 an RGB Moving head and you want to copy to a new movinghead #1 with 4 RGB cells
Example a fixture as a base part and 4 RGB cell
So 1.0 is the base part 1.1 to 1.4 are the RGB cell
to copy a any Movinghead RGB to this multipart fixture you do
COPY 1001 to 1.0
COPY 1001 to 1.1 THRU 1,4
This will ensure the P/T positions are copied as well as the RGB presets
