DMX Footprint Not holding Values???

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had the issue of VW 2021 not holding the DMX footprint values?

If I use Fixture mode, it will allow me to select it then after a save it drops the values.

It will hold the mode but shows the field as blank and greyed out.

Same if I don't use a fixture mode and enter the channels manually.

Makes the patching in VW basically impossible.

Setting the fixture mode should automatically set the DMX footprint based on the selected mode.
Does this issue happen for you with all the fixture modes or just the Robe MegaPointe Mode 1?

Is this issue in just this one file?

It looks like you are using a customized OIP, does this happen when using the Default OIP in a new document?

Happens with all fixtures. And has happened with Multiple files. It also does it with Default OIP.

The work around was to export to 2020 but we all know that the fixtures double themselves when doing that... So ....


Heres a snapshot.
