Sunstrip selection on grid

Postby Patz » Tue May 07, 2019 1:01 pm

Have to work on a Mq40n and Mq60 next. I'm trying out with Mq on my PC. For now, I've got 10 funstrips patched from 1-100 to 1-109,

on a grid in MQ,

when I'm selecting for example, 100.5 and 150.9 it selects 100.5, 150.9 AND 100.9 + 150.5.
How can i select only some bulb on the grid. For example, 100.1, 120.5, 160.4, 110.3,...

Hi Patz,

I'm having the same issue as you. Since 8 years or so, I'm patching 10 dimmers for each sunstrips I have in the rig. Laying them the way you did in the grid enables you to select each bulb individually.

I have to admit that managing 100 dimmers instead of 10 sunstrips in the patch (and viz) is not easy... I would love being able to handle the sunstrips as multi-element head in the grid and select the bulbs one by one.

Chamsys why isn't possible to do so with multi-element heads ? Or maybe do we use the grid/fixture the wrong way ?

Thanks for your help ?
