    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 absolute effect to handle the movement, but I can't figure out a way to handle the intensity issue other than running an intensity absolute effect simultaneously. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The issue is that the element doesn't allow presets like any other EOS console, so you can't reference more than one parameter in a single effect. You may be a little out of luck on that console.

    With the new software v2.4 you get some pretty detailed fader settings. There might be an answer in placing FP and IP faders next to each other. (Yes, palettes on faders and other cool options!)

    I don't see an issue with dual effects in a cue list.

    You can specify parameters by action in absolute effects.

    It takes some doing to get a fly out effect right - the action dwell times want to overlap.
