Thanks SDMAN. I just tried using Scenes instead of Presets, but Scenes seem to have a few different problems:
- Scenes sometimes want to cancel each other when turning them on. (Does anyone know why this is?) This makes it hard to turn on multiple scenes simultaneously.
- When a scene fades out, it fades its channels down to zero, rather than letting them stay at their "color scene".
I thought "HTP" would allow the highest value to control the channel, but apparently it means a controller will take exclusive control of the channel as soon as it goes higher than the current channel value. Is this correct?
Is there a way to have two scenes of the same channels mix together, taking the highest value from either scene--and the scenes may go up and down independently?
Again, my goal is to have 1) a "(dark) color scene" for all 4 RGB fixtures together, and then 2) 4 "spot faders" to bring up a white (or white-ish) scene on just one fixture at a time. When the spot faders go down, then the color scene should keep the channels at that color scene level, rather than taking that fixture down to black.
Maybe I need to program some RGB channels as conventional dimmers?
Best regards and aloha, George.
