When done, Close the wheel editor, and proceed to to page 3 of the Profile Editor.

3. Click the 'Wheel' button (bottom left)

Making Global Speed Masters

Because M-Series treats FX values/Timing Values/Base Values separately, its possible to record cues with just one FX parameter in - such as speed. So therefore its possible to make an Override fader that will increase the speed of ANY running effect on a particular parameter. For example, you can make a speed override for Intensity speed, CMY speed or Pan/Tilt speed.

You may choose which fixtures go into the speed overrides, either specific groups of fixtures or all fixtures of a type, or even every single fixture in the show!

For example, making an Intensity FX Speed override is done like this...


  • Select the fixtures you want in the Override

  • Select the parameter(s) (i.e. Intensity)

  • Press the FX LCD Key

  • Set Speed and Multiplier to the desired values. DO NOT change FX Mode or Swing

  • Press RECORD and set the options to record FX Values, Selected Fixtures only.

  • Press the select key of a playback

  • Select "Override" as the cue list type


Your cue list values should look like this -

If you want groups of parameters in the override, such as CMY or RGB, simply LINK them together using the LINK key and proceed to set the speed values and record the override.

You can also make an override that pauses any running effects on a particular parameter. This can be global or for specific fixtures. It is done the using the same method as above, just record the FX speed as 0%. For an override to be global, simply record every patched fixture into it.

The pause override should look like this -

How to use the Q-Blender?

In this thread we will publish some example of settings for the Q-Blender

To make a Q-Blender, store the cue as Override and then in the Cuelist option window, turn on the Q-Blender option.



Example #1
Control a range of strobe on a fader.

Cue 1:
DMX value : Set the Strobe value to the slowest
Cue Fade Mode : Snap All
Range value: From 0 to 2

Cue 2:
DMX value : Set the Strobe value to the slowest (same as Cue 1)
Cue Fade Mode : Fade All
Range value: From 3 to 4


Cue 3:
DMX value : Set the Strobe value to the fastest
Cue Fade Mode : Fade All
Range value: From 5 to 100.

---------------------------------------------------

Example #2
Control a FX speed on fader.
This will allow to slowdown or accelerate any running FX

Cue 1:
DMX value : Set the FX speed to 0 or stop
Cue Fade Mode : Default
Range value: From 0 to 45

Cue 2:
DMX value : Set the FX speed to 0 or stop
Cue Fade Mode : Default
Range value: From 46 to 55


Cue 3:
DMX value : Set the FX Speed to the fastest
Cue Fade Mode : Default
Range value: From 56 to 100.


---------------------------------------------------


Example #3
Control a FX Amplitude on fader.
This will allow to reduce or increase the implitude of any FX.

Cue 1:
DMX value : Set the FX Swing to 0 or stop
Cue Fade Mode : Default
Range value: From 0 to 45

Cue 2:
DMX value : Set the FX Swing to 0 or stop
Cue Fade Mode : Default

How to Create 3 controller faders for RGB or CMY

Lets create 3 overrides where each one control only a color.

Be aware, as soon as you touch of the three parameters R,G,B or C,M,Y, the two other are included in the programmer as well.

Example if you set RED to 100%, then Hold the Clear button and press the Green and Blue Wheel to remove the values for the programmer.

on M-PC simply right-click on the parameter to be cleared and a menu will popup.

Then record as an Override.

Repeat for Green and Blue. But this time for green you will clear the Red and Blue and for Blue you will clear the Red and Green.
