1. ### QLab Gloom effect issue

Hey, folks, I wonder if any of you have an idea on resolving a particular QLab 4 issue I’m having. The look I’m going for is to make the lungs png I have inhale and exhale in a continuous loop. I’ve built the loop group (say that five times fast). The closest video effect I could find in QLab...
2. ### Quiet High Output Fog Machine for around $500-$700.

Hi all, I am looking for a quiet high output fog machine for my high school theater department. We previously had an Arena 2100 Flex from Chauvet however it long longer will function and it will cost almost as much to replace as it would to get it fixed. The Arena 2100 Flex has an...
3. ### Falling ceiling effect from a gun blast

Hey all, I am looking to make an effect where a chunk of ceiling falls onto the stage after an actor "shoots" into the air. I have a thought about a box with a bolt that gets released via string and pulleys, but I'm open to any better solutions. The grid height is only 12', and it is a 70...
4. ### Linear Effect Help

On the ETC TI, we have a stack of cues where a group of conventional channels are cycling infinitely through a linear fade effect. Most of the show is fine, but when the rate changes between cues we occasionally get channels that pop on much too fast. The only thing changing is the rate. The...
5. ### Penguins making a splash

Hi CB, We're working on a small piece that involves children dressed up like penguins. There is a part of the script where a few of the penguins walk up a 3' staircase and jump behind an iceberg. We were hoping to create a splash effect behind the iceberg after they jump. Some ideas that...
6. ### Intensity effects on Incandescent Edison vs. LED edison bulbs

Recently, our next event was going to be based around stranger things. Loved the show and since it has become a smash hit, why not pull some ideas from them. We have a ton of incandescent Edison bulbs in our stage design and I am afraid to run any type of intensity effects on them in fear of...
7. ### Intensity parameter on mover effect.

I am programming Chauvet Intimidator 350 spots on an ETC Element. I am trying to create an effect where the instruments move from FP1 to FP2, but when they reach FP2 the intensity will go to zero, return to FP1 and then begin the cycle again with the intensity at full. I can create an...
8. ### 'Eclipse' effect

Hey all, Looking for some advice about a specific effect. LDing an opera and the director asked for a 'lunar eclipse' effect and I'm trying to think how to do this technically. The plan is to have a glass moon gobo on the cyc. Having multiples isn't an option budget wise, so can anyone think...
9. ### Automated Fixtures Sweep multiple moving lights with ETC Element

[Using ETC Element] I am trying to program an effect or a series of linked cues (can't figure which is a better approach) to simulate a train passing across the stage. I have 2 old Technobeams (mirror fixtures) and 2 MAC DesignSpot 250. The idea is to have them each sweep straight across the...
10. ### Sound f/x Help: Shipwreck sound F/X

Hello everyone! This is actually my first post to the community here so I hope to contribute as much as I am able. Anyway, my college is producing The Tempest for our first production of the semester. For this production I am Stage Managing as well as designing sound. One of my cues I'm having...
11. ### Shrek Magic Mirror Projections

Hi, I'm currently working on a production of Shrek The Musical and I'm in charge of all of the projections. The show involves the use of the magic mirror which is a mirror that flies in and we project a floating mask that talks on to it (if that makes any sense). The image should hopefully...
