    We have a Zercros 1812 lighting desk and we would like to access a manual for it, or have some one explain the 'fader' and 'chase' functions. I'm not really a techie but i do know how to read a manual and follow logically.

    Well, www.zercros.com, which is what google returns doesn't come up.

    I can explain to you a chase and a fade though.

    Fade-

    Let's say you have a fixture whose intensity is at 75%. You need it to come down to 25%. You have a couple options - with no fade, just drop it straight there - very abrupt.

    When something is faded, that change from 75% to 25% will happen gradually over a period of time you specify. If you say 5 seconds, 10% light output drop per second in this scenario.

    Chase-

    You ahve a pipe below with 5 fixtures on it:

    ===A===B===C===D===E===

    In a simple chase, this would be hte sequence of events:

    Light A on
    Light A off
    Light B on
    Light B off
    Light C on
    Light C off
    Light D on
    Light D off
    Light E on
    Light E off
    Light A on
    Light A off
    Light B on
    Light B off
    Light C on
    Light C off
    Light D on
    Light D off
    Light E on
    Light E off
    etc

    Visually, the light chases from left to right.
