It would make sense to have access to global intensity like on a light desk. The blackout (with a 0-100 value for smooth exiting), is superimportant to me. I build one every time, and connect it to every little thing.
I find myself alway going through a lot of setup. Mostly I avoid the "activated scene" route, because what if I accidentally deactivate it mid show... Every projector has to be connected and some aren't running at
a 100% which adds additional actors and defaults to program and keep track of.
it would make my mandatory "oh shit" button a lot easier to make :)
you could use the "activate scene amount" actor in every scene, but make sure you set the min value to 0.1 otherwise you de-activate the scene.
My desktop background an image that could be in the show but isn't. If I have an "Oh hit"moment, i deactivate the scene. If the actors on stage see that image they know there is a technical issue and they can stall the show.
I've been using a router system for a lot of shows and I never had problems, every scene has an activate scene trigger so every time i jump to an other scene the "router" scene is activated. In this router scene you can connect the final projector to a midi controller.
+1 for a master intesity
Oh, I just found the "scene intensity" actor, still not the master intensity over all active scenes but could be handy.
@michel - Scene Intensity only reports, doesn't control.....
your are right, I just saw it and did not even test it. Sorry.
hello, my proposition would be to use a user actor for each of your output with a limit-scale actor linked to a slider as final output (here is a prototype).
The only problem is during a transition between scene, the setting is not guarded.
it's one of the reason I don't use scene fade, because it's not sufficiently controllable. I use scene to separate very different process with activated scene supporting the continuing medias.
A very basic Level actor would be a plus!
I Upvote the "Low Level" Master Intensity Control and a "Low Level" Master Audio Control.
These two could be added on the Status Bar and could be controlled via OSC or MIDI.
When output value isn't 100, value could be in Red to warn the user..
It would be cool to disjoint the fonction grouped inside Projector, as separate actors: level (intensity) ---> mapping (position, dizzy-map) ---> output (layer, stage), allowing to fade between mapping or other routing.
