Effect Begin , End, Start

The begin and end values of an effect represent the limits that the function value will
hit as it passes through the effect table. The begin and end values can be edited diretly
in the effects editor window or in the programmer / cue editor. Be aware that editing
the begin and end values an effect result in an adjustment to the base value for that
fixture function as well.

The start value of an effect is the real world value at which the function will start the
effect. The start value of an effect is directly tied to the offset value of an effect.

The following diagram shows the begin, end, and start points of a simple efffect:

Effect Length

The length is the proportion of the effect's period that it is active for. It is assigned as a
percentage.

The following diagram shows how the value of a parameter assigned to the sawtooth
table changes over time, with different length values:

N Shot

This is the number of times that the effect repeats before finishing. A dash (—) in the N
Shot cell denotes that the effect will run indefinitely.

Bounce

When bounce is enabled for an effect the fixture function will run one direction through
the effect cycle and then reverse direction to run through the cycle in the oppositie dir-
ection and will continue to alternate the direction in which it runs through the cycle.

Direction

The direction of an effect determines whether the selected wave table will be applied
to the function in a forward or reverse direction.

Sync

Allows users to synchronize the timing of effects across fixtures and/or across parameters
within and throughout different playbacks. For example, using the global sync option
for all effects in a show will ensure that the effects in the show will always look the same
no matter how or when its cues/scenes are played back.

14.1.3 Building Table Effects in the Effects Engine

To apply an effect:

1. In the Programmer or editor, select the required fixtures and assign
their base parameter values. These settings will be the ‘underlying’
state for the effect: for example, the center position of a fixture doing
a circular movement effect. Equally, an intensity ripple between 0-100%
will need a base value of 50% in order to use the full length of the effect.

2. Open + Effect : the Effects Engine and Effect Directory will open.

3. In the Effects Engine, select the Table cells for the fixture parameters
that you want to apply the effect to.

4. Press Set, choose the effect table from the menu and press Enter.
