I got my DMX Programmer in October and am just getting around to trying fades again. Up to this point I have avoided using fades because it acted oddly. Now that I've spent some time I've got some questions.
1)Is it typical for the first scene in a show with fades to cause LED fixtures to cycle through programs (sort of like it is sending a fade command on a channel it shouldn't)? When the second scene plays everything settles down and the first scene is fine when it repeats it.
2) Are you limited to all fades or all straight timing in a show? It looks like it's one or the other for the entire show.
3) What is the fade option supposed to actually do? When I use it, it seems to keep two scenes up for the combined time of the fade setting, and the actual "fade" is always a about a second. In other words, a 3 second fade setting keeps two scenes up for 6 seconds and then a one second fade brings in the third scene.
Any help is greatly appreaciated.
