    hey all,

    first:
    i need the fixture numbers for strand. I'm not talking the identification bits of how you patch your intelligent fixtures (i.e. 94 = morpheus color fader) i mean the specific numbers for specific attributes on any given fixture (i.e. 3 = Pan, 4 = tilt, 20 = control). i can't seem to find that info on their site. i'm gonna check in the fixtlib one more time and may resort to calling the bastards. thoughts?

    Second:
    i don't know how many of you have read the Strand Conventional Tutorial, but it's wonderful and i would suggest it to you all. HOWEVER, he does things in there with learning macros like "shift +" to bring your cursor to the top left side of the screen and change the option once. where the hell do i find the rest of those commands???

    thanks.

    First, the attribute list can be found in the fixture library file on your console. Just open the notes reader and open the fixture library (it is in the soft keys). Unless you have installed your own custom library there should be an attribute list at the top. For reference, here it is (this will probably not format correctly on CB as I just cut an pasted it):

    # Attribute List (hAtt):

    Second, what commands are you looking for? Feel free to shoot me a PM or continue this thread. I live and breathe by my 500 series consoles, so I know them pretty well.
