Version 2.14 Build 37

  • Added option for the release button to only release intensity
  • If a firmware update fails, the software will not attempt to upgrade any other boards. The user is prompted that they should restart with a power cycle.
  • Resolves issues with individual board upgrade when updated software/firmware is loaded and installed.
  • Classic View now shows all data programmed for fixtures.
  • Fixed. In Patch, selected newly searched model in text box did not allow ENTER to select.
  • Dimmer patching window. The SHIFT button should be lit as the user can SHIFT + TAB to return to previous edit box.
  • When in Patch, pressing Live will trigger the Close option on the Patch screen.
  • When a second patch instance of an already patched fixture is patched, there should be no request to create a new page of Auto-Palettes.
  • When a fixture is changed and the fixture library editor is closed, the NEO software goes to a blank window.
  • Creating a new blank show, doesn’t clear out the patch if you use an existing file name for the new blank show.
  • Cue triggering a Note seems to not show the note window on a single monitor system.
  • Single monitor issue. In Patch, type VL1100 and then use the mouse to select the correct model, when you do that, it automatically goes back to Live.
  • RECORD CUE ### ENTER will lock up the programming tile.
  • Referencing a position group, if I move Pan, it does not lose the reference. Only when you move Tilt does the reference go away.
  • In Fan, once you select something in Other Attributes, the encoders are now assigned to the other attribute items but the screens still ID to Color, Hue, Saturation, Intensity.
  • When you are in the profile fx editor then wheels should change the values - When in the chase fx editor the wheels should control step time, fade time, fade out time - In FX List, adding channels can only be done from keyboard.
  • You can (now) use "UPDATE POS #", UPDATE COLOR #" etc. It will be based on current selection or leading channel list.
  • UPDATE+GROUP - now working. Will automatically select the last group applies. - When updating a Group, the Shortcut should not say Auto. This is moving the shortcut when the preset focus group is updated.
  • When the FAN dialogue box is open, have the Fan button go red.
  • When using TIME in the syntax CUE # TIME # ENTER, you can press TIME a second time and get down time (represented by a slash / ). It now stops accepting TIME to the Command Line after this.
  • When in a recording dialogue box allow the attribute family keys (Position, Color, Beam, Edge) to be used to toggle the appropriate attribute family selection.
  • With an LED patched in HSI mode, in the Cue List Detail window we don’t see what color it is in. We just see a Hue box with a 16-bit number.
  • Fixed possible crash using ShowNet output above universe 4.
  • Changed event processing for messages from the NEO hardware from being synchronized with the main thread (to be queued with the main thread). This eliminates possible lock-ups and will not stop further events from being processed.Changing out of the dimmer patch window (without closing) will trigger a "save patch" message.
  • "Record Record" and "Update Update" working again - broken in the last build
  • Most of these changes are related to modal windows and ensuring you can’t get into a state where a modal window is obscured by another window.
  • Also changed the way the "Enter" key is processed. Rather than the enter key directly triggering the command processor it now sends a notification message to the main thread to trigger the processing. This ensures that if the command processor gets tied up (e.g. it pops up a dialog box) then the program board processing continues to run.
  • Tracksheet intensity color accuracy improvements.
  • Should an effect be recorded into cue 0, going into Cue Lists window, clicking on the Effects (Fx) … will NOT recognize cue 0 and allow you to remove it.
  • Fixed possible lock up of the program board when changing values in Spin Edit controls using the console keyboard.
  • Fixed Encoder board apparent lock up if you select a fixture that does not have any encoder assignments (and the auto assignment does not apply).
  • Fixed bug that if the cue FX window is open (or shortcuts, or notes etc) and you click on a different row it would select the wrong cue.
  • ML mouse mode. Console will now only go into this mode when fixtures with pan/tilt are selected. The system will also automatically exit this mode when the selection list is cleared.

  • Added color coding to the track sheet
  • Fixed bug that prevented editing RGB/CMY colors in the track sheet.
  • In Patch, typing “VL4000” in the search box for the old LF way of patching, didn’t find the VL4000. Search is now fixed.
  • When updating a cue by UPDATE UPDATE, in the Update dialogue box, change “preset” to “preset focus group”. This term is used 4 times on the dialogue box including the button.
  • If you have a sub at less than full and you grab a channel, change its level and update the sub, the value appears in white. They now remain in yellow.
  • Recording a cue to include submasters does not include levels from subs.
  • Looking at the Cue List window, the Channel column no longer shows channels stored in the cue.
  • When using Stop/Back to go from Cue 1 to Cue 0 when not only sitting in a cue but subs are outputting, the values from the sub go to white when they should stay yellow.
  • Playback GO/Play LED will flash when cue is running.
  • Playback Stop/Back LED will flash when cue is paused.
  • Fixed bug in option called "Override takes precedence over HTP". Now allows channel control priority over any HTP sub behavior setting. This setting is defaulted on.
  • With a submaster outputting, if intensities are changed via channel control and the sub is updated. The channels/fixtures shall be able to be released and the value goes to the submaster control without changing intensity.
  • When a sub is outputting and one of its intensities is changed via channel control and the submaster is updated, it replaced the sub with the changed channel and deleted all others. This is now merging and not replacing data.
  • CL: RECORD CUE # RELEASE will record the cue. Fixed.
  • When selecting fixtures that have a level from a cue, then typing RECORD SUB # ENTER, it’s recording changed even though it should be recording selected. If you use the dialogue box, everything works as expected.
  • DIMMER 1 FULL NEXT/LAST should advance on dimmers (not fixtures) as if in Active Select Mode.
  • If you select a fixture from the ML attribute window with a mouse, you do NOT get the Fixture Control in the Side Bar.
  • Working with fixtures there still seems to be one way that the encoders and fixture control GUI can get out of sync. If you select a fixture, adjust color then record a cue. With the fixtures being released on record, the fixture is released but the encoder screens still show color info. Now if you reselect the fixture, it goes to the Position page on the GUI but the encoder screens still show color. When the record action occurs and the fixtures are released, the encoder screens now go blank.
  • Applying a palette, [Fixture List][@][PALETTE][Show Blue][ENTER]. It takes the intensity up 5%.
