Fade out with Overrides?

Post by mrgordon27 » October 10th, 2019, 12:04 am

Hey all,

Searched and searched but to no avail. I use only override buttons. I want to be able to have a button where light goes to full brightness then fades out. But no matter which mode I choose (snap in fade out or whatever) it just makes it what it is instant on and off.

I want to be able to hit a button to make the light go fully bright, then fade out!

And NO CUES!

Speaking of which, How do you execute a cue and then after it’s Unclicked make the values of the light go back to what they were?

Not sure it can be done without a Cue, what you are wanting is 2 steps. Step 1 turns light on and step 2 fades light out.

In the "extra options" of freestyler setup select preferences/extra options the check the box for Cue "Go to Previous value" always enabled

Hej.

Override buttons are instant.
They don't use fade so as Partyman says the only way is cues.

Override buttons can fade in if "fade in experimental" is selected, If you use master speed for running sequences this will control how fast it fades :)

You are right but if I recall correct then it affect all override buttons or am I wrong?
And what "mrgordon27" is the fade out.
