    i need a tutorial on the Strand 300 series light rig.
    i downloaded their big manual on it, but was wondering if there were some good tutorials on patching and recording cues and whatnot.

    thanks

    thanks guys, i'll probably be dropping a few pm's your way.
    i've got to get familiar with this system so i can train a few people to run it.

    Teaching youself from the manual is a PAIN, I reccoment getting the Off Line Editor, it lets you use the sytem, without having to get a console. Make sure you also get all the keyboard shortcuts ect. That way you actually get to practice what you learn. Its easier with two computers to do this, that way you can have the manual and keyboard map open and the OLE with a screen to itslef. Heres the link to the OLE, http://redirectingat.com/?id=41X76&...ing.com/console_training/assets/StrandOLE.zip its easy enough to work out, just unzip, install and click on the batch file.
    Let me know if you kneed more help,
    Nick

    I wouldn't try to really learn how to use a physical console just from the OLE. While it is a good resource, part of the important things to learn when learning a desk is the desk itself. Where the keys are and how they function and whatnot. The OLE can help you learn the software, but it won't make you a better programmer. The keymapping to a computer keyboard just isn't the same as sitting at the hardware (I find it significantly more tedious).

    Toche, translating keyboard shortcuts out of your head and onto reall buttons was a bit of a pain, but he is trying to learn from scratch. And rather than just learning how to do it, he actually gets to do it. Of cource it would be better to do it on a desk, but I got the impression he didn't have acess to one. Anywho

    We've got a small console with it too, I'd rather learn with the console, I hate keyboard shortcuts. I downloaded that Bobby Harrell guide, I'm gonna bring my laptop with me to set up with the manual and that guide pulled up so I can refer to either if needed.
