Video playback/lyrics and light presets

Post by andy gibbs » Mon Feb 17, 2020 5:01 pm

There are 2 Questions I have 1st, I cannot for the life of me get amber to show up in the visualiser for ADJ 5p Hex 12 channel, And also before I go ahead and purchase S/B/A + projection, I know I can play video and light presets at the same time but can I still see my lyrics if needed as well, Many Thanks

That will be a simple error in the fixture file. Amber and White channels need to be defined as type 'dimmer'.

Assuming you're referring to the lyrics display in Show Buddy, then yes, you continue to see that. The SBA video output is a separate window (which you drag to the projector part of your desktop).

With SBA, the basic Show Buddy workflow doesn't change - you still import tracks, create lightshows, add lyrics, and program your sets exactly as before. The only change is that instead of using the DMXIS window, you'll use the SBA window instead (plus the new video window).
