What console and protocol are you using?
- ETC Eos Nomad, artnet
What fixture(s) are having the issue?
-So far seems multiple. However the most significant are VL4000, MAC quantum wash, and Scenius profiles/spots. Which are basically all the fixtures in the pre-vis rig.
Dies the same random thing happen every time you run the cue?
-No, all the weird little glitches are totally random and typically do not repeat during a sequence.
Is the cue that's having issues or is it the transition between cues where you are seeing the problem?
-It’s kind of a mixture of everything. For example if I’m running a Q or in the middle of a cute lamp may change color and focus, or swing around and point to the ceiling etc. and it’s never really a repeatable issue. Sometimes even when I’m not in a Q but I am focusing a light, the light will suddenly pan or tilt in a different direction and I have to home the fixture again before I can regain control of it.
Are you on an isolated network? Vision listens to all DMX traffic on the network, so if there is someone else transmitting on the same network Vision will see it and process it.
-Yes I’m on a totally isolated network, there’s no other consoles running over the lake it’s just me and my software.
If you are running the free version of EOS, and possibly others, remember it randomly backs out the DMX to prevent you from using it for a real show.
-Yes, totally understand that. Eos does flash everything to full randomly once in a while which is made clear in the vision and EOS documentation. That’s not what the issue is. It’s just weird little random changes that fixtures seem to have minds of their own.
