Struggling with momentary presets and fade outs

Post by AndyP » Mon Mar 16, 2020 12:46 am

I'm trying to learn about masked channels and momentary presets.

As a very simple test I decided to make a single red channel fade up, then a single green channel fade up, then the red to fade down, and finally the green to fade down.

Here are the presets I've set up:

And in the main DMXIS window they look like this:
Red on fixture 1

Green on fixture 2:

And the "Off" preset:

(This one does not have any masked channels?)

And here is what it looks like in Show Buddy:

Now by my reckoning, that should fade up lamp 1 red, then fade up lamp 2 green, then fade down lamp 1 red and finally fade down lamp 2 green.

But what is happening is Lamp 1 fades up red, then lamp 2 fades up green, and then BOTH lamps fade down at the time set for lamp 1. The green channel never fades up completely and its full-on time and fade out time are ignored.

Please can you tell me what I'm doing wrong, or have I come across a bug or limitation in the program?
