Line Array with Bracewroks?

Recommended Posts

So I am inserting a KARA line array and (using the Line array tool with my own numbers and saved to the library) But it will not connect to the truss so I can add the load any suggestions?

I run into these issues often for various reasons. I find it easiest to add a simple point load at the same location and ignore the weights in the array tool. Handy also when the audio dept. changes gear and doesn't update the array tool with accurate weights.

Along these lines I don't understand why you can't (or I can't) seem to get a single hoist to grab the load info from the Line Array tool let alone connect to it.  (single point array).   If I stick a point load under the hoist with the weight of the array and same Z value of the motor, that works.    What am I doing wrong?   Or is it really that stupid?

The trick seems to be move the Array to the motor point or the truss.  The motor point or the truss will do its little red thing and then it'll connect.

Not sure how I'm just seeing this but thank you!  It worked!   There seems to be little in the way of continuity between how difference devices attached to motors and stuff.
