Check out the macro I posted HERE. I think it will do what your asking for. If not, let me know and I'll modify it.

Re: fade to next problem

Not that it fixes the problem, but if you didn't have the issue before then go back to the previous version. 1.6.3 is the most recent version according to the website. 1.6.9 is a beta at this point.

Re: Automatic "paste" over masked channels?

Here's a macro that will combine channels saved in a clipboard to the present Preset. It does exactly what the table outlines above. Note: You'll have to change {USER NAME} in the path accordingly. First select some channels, then run the Copy macro. Then select a different preset and run the Combin...

Re: Shape Macros??

The Circle Macro looks for selected channels with the name Pan and Tilt. Those channels are modified to create the shape. By default, the Circle Macro put the "center" of the circle at 50% (A channel value of 128). If you need this to be a different value, you could modify the channel value in the m...

Viewing crash reports is easy - Logic creates one every time it crashes, and that gets sent to Apple. I have not saved any of them but if you want to look at them let me know and I will get them to you.
Not much I can do with it... maybe Dave might be interested?

The feature I´m after would be useful specifically for programming, to save time when merging scenes together to create new ones.
If that's the case, then a macro will work. I'm pretty busy right now, but should be able to program a macro for you in the near future.

Oscillators sync up when a preset is started, or a Tap Tempo is initiated. So... copy/paste the values, then save the preset, then exit the preset, then go back to it and things should be in sync. Or, Copy/Paste the values, then hit the Tap Tempo switch hooked up to the DMXIS box, or the Tap Tempo b...

If you created a dmxis_clipboard directory, remove it. That needs to be a file, not a directory. It will get created in the process. In both the CopyChannel.py and PasteChannel.py files change: clipboardfile = "/tmp/dmxis_clipboard" to clipboardfile = "C:\\Users\\{username}\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\dm...

Re: Automatic "paste" over masked channels?

Not exactly sure what you mean...

When changing presets, the masked channels on the new preset will inherit the values from the preset you're leaving. The channels will not change until you select a preset that doesn't have the channels masked.

Re: One Shot Presets for accents

I think DMXIS can do this via a foot pedal. If "movers centered" is the last preset of the bank then press and hold the footpedal will jump to that from wherever it is and will revert on release. I don't know about MIDI. Yes, that's correct. It will load that last preset via footswitch. I'm hoping ...

Re: How to adjust 1 fader in ALL presets at one time?

If none of your other presets change the Focus, then mask will work.

When you mask a channel in a preset, then it remains unchanged when that preset is selected.

Check the Macro posted HERE. It moves all selected channels in all presets and banks by 5 counts.

If that's too much movement, then change the value in the macro to your liking.

Re: Simple Macro for increasing and decreasing channel values in all banks and presets

Here you go. Place them in the Macros/Global Edits directory.

I set the Inc / Dec value to 5... that's 5 based on a channel value being 0 to 255. Feel free to change the value to what ever you like.

Highly unlikely this will ever happen. People have been asking for this for years. That being said, you can change the resolution of your screen. Go with a lower resolution.
