Shape Macros??

Post by mikevar94 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 6:04 am

Does anyone know how to use the circle macro for example? When I apply to my beams they just do circles in an upward direction toward the ceiling. What I would like to do is a circle motion but facing forward toward the audience. I’m able to create this by messing with the tilt and pan oscillators manually but it’s a real pain and this would be sooo much faster if the macro worked how I wanted :) also want to know if I could chase this circle effect across a few different fixtures so the circles were slightly behind each other or even a mirror effect would be nice!

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 macro... so instead of SetChVal(ch, 128), change it to SetChVal(ch, 64) if you want the center to be 25%.
