HOW TO RECORD INDIVIDUAL LIGHTING LOOKS/PRESETS ON THE STRAND PALETTE VL DMX LIGHTING BOARD
Make sure you are in "Live" Mode Not "Blind" Mode
You can click on the "soft key" in the software shown here.
Or click "Live" on the Lighting Board
Also make sure that there are not any dimmers selected in the software
See the image none of the dimmers have any level assigned to them.
To get this hit ESC and ESC on the keyboard (esc twice) to clear any settings
Make sure all the channel sliders are down on the lighting board. The four that are lit green (Channels 61-64)
already have a preset assigned to them already. That is why they are green.
Next set the look of all the circuits that have lights on them that you want to use.
Here we just turned up 77-162 to full by selecting and rolling the mouse center
button all the way up.
Once you have the lights set the way you want you can assign those values to 1 of the 64 lighting board
