    About halfway through the rehearsal last night when we were reprogramming positions for movers on an express someone knocked the grand master from 100% to 98%, so when the show was run today many of our positions were off a good bit.

    Just a warning to those out there using the express for movers, disable the GM.

    First off...that sucks!
    Second off...why didn't you pull the GM back down to 98%? ;)

    that would be my solution. The fact that the GM affects movement of movers is just nuts to me, and one more reason why the express sucks for movers. The fact that one simple thing like that is not bypassed is beyond me.

    Its quite simple. Its a conventional board that was not made to controll moving lights. They did make some very simple software additions that dont really help in the long run. But it is still a conventional board.

    That is why something so simple as the grand master can effect pan and tilt.
    :) I rember getting yelled at for saying that 2 years ago.

    believe me I asked my op that, the reason is 75% of the programing was done at full.

    on an express, just make the channel not dependent of the GM. Just go to channel attributes, and make it independent. I do this with my house lights and rotators.

    i've never had the GM effect my movers' positions on an express
    did you just patch them as dimmers or did you use the actual moving light options of the console?

    they were patched as movers, here is the thing though, we used cheap movers so we had to make our own profiles and I assume my ME didn't bother to make the channels independent.
