Prop Warnings - Sharing circuits

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have 2 props sharing the same channel/circuit in the preview design? I have several props I would like to have share a circuit - ie; 3 Driveway arches have big bulbs that all share a circuit, Singing bulbs were built in visualizer and have multiple elements within that prop all sharing one channel (the bulb itself is Red with a white base), 2 - 12 channel candy cane spinners that mimic each other...  Just hoping for something other than redoing all duplicates in the custom prop builder. Thanks in advance for any info!

There were quite a few people at Expo 2017 that mentioned this. It is on the list of enhancements for a future beta version.

This was part of the 5.0.6 release. On the Prop Definition screen, note the "Uses the same channels as" field in the upper right corner.

For props that share channels, one prop will be designated the "master prop" and the rest (1 or more) will be "sub props". For the master prop, "Uses the same channels as" should be set to "<none>". For sub props, "Uses the same channels as" should be set to the master prop.

The Visualizer Import was updated at the same time to make use of this feature for fixtures that share channels.

Hope that helps,

Matt
