v9 Generator problem with mult head fixture

Postby sgriffin1 » 01 November 2018, 02:31

Using 2 Intimidator Wave 360 IRC's in the generator, I have noticed the SX groups the "Tilt" of head #1 with the Pan function of the ENTIRE fixture.There should be a separate tilt for head #1. The unit has 4 heads that tilt independently but with the "tilt" of head #1 grouped with the Pan of the entire fixture, everything rotates in a circle instead of tilting head #1. There are separate controls for Tilt of head #2 3 and 4. Thanks for you help!

We double checked.

With the option "Explode multi Pan/Tilt"
Just ignore the line "Tilt" (it is due to the fact the heads 2, 3 and 4 have no pan).
If you use exclusively the line "Pan/Tilt", it works as expected.

Without the option "Explode multi Pan/Tilt"
Everything is normal.

So every time I select head number 1 to tilt, it automatically starts to pan and tilt at the same time because these two are grouped together? I don't want to pan head number 1or anything at this point. I only want to tilt head one. In this version there is no way to separate all 4 tilts. I can tilt 2 3 and 4, but head 1 always pans the entire fixture which it should not do, these should be separated. A pan for entire fixture plus 4 tilts for each head. For a total of 5 controls.

For all fixtures (mono head and multi heads), the channels "pan" and "tilt" are always grouped together.
You can select the option "Lock Pan" in the curve, in order to put all points in a vertical line.

Alternatively, you can rename the channels "Pan/uPan" to for instance "Dimmer/uDimmer".

Or you can also rename the channels "Tilt" to another name.

Cool, thank you for the explanation on this one, was little confused. Will use "lock pan" option when needed.
