I want to make sure I'm not missing something. In Carbonite Ultra, you can't fly a self-key. That is, put a self key in a DVE and move it around. The DVE is a key type in itself, not a way of manipulating a key. Is this correct? ------------------------------ [Danny] [Skarka] Ross Pilot since Synergy ...

HI Sebastian We had the same issue, same software upgrade and frame at KQED. We needed to try the regrade again but with a slightly different procedure. Unfortunately, I don't recall the exact steps but support knows how to fix this. Give them a call. We've been solid ever since the fix. -------- ...

Using the color picker in Dashboard, is there a way to generate a switcher background color that matches a brand's RGB color chart? ------------------------------ [Danny] [Skarka] Ross Pilot since Synergy [Producer, Director, Technical Director] ------------------------------

Les, If you are referring to the PGM, AI and EFF DISS button on the physical keypad, in STORE mode, one needs to be on. In Recall, with all of those buttons OFF, the effect is still recalled at whatever rate is displayed in the EFF Rate display on the memory panel. In Attributes-Recall, Effects Duration ...

Les, That makes sense. Straightforward. What I am not understanding is how do I get a different effects duration on different memories since EFF RATE on the memory pad seems to be global? All Recall attributes are orange (As Stored). Also, to make my brain hurt even more.... I did a STORE-ALL. Called ...

While I appreciate the functionality of attributes, most of what I do is to simply recall the effect as I stored it, with all the same effects times. I am not understanding fully how to do that. As a simplified example, ME 1, memory 1 has a DVE box. Memory 2 has the DVE slide over, EFF Rate of 30 so ...

Les, Thanks. I see State in Special on CC. Can you give me a little info on what state does? I'm unclear on how to implement it. ------------------------------ [Danny] [Skarka] Ross Pilot since Synergy [Producer, Director, Technical Director] ------------------------------

Hi all, I am stuck figuring something out. It pertains to using a CC to recall an effect that contains a DVE move. In a simplified example: Memory 1 has a DVE box keyed over a camera. This memory sets the effect up. Memory 2 has an effects rate 400 move putting the DVE box in motion. I want ...

We had a loss of sync issue (not switcher related) that made us want to power cycle Carbonite. That ended up clearing the switcher issues … minor as they were. ------------------------------ [Danny] [Skarka] Ross Pilot since Synergy [Producer, Director, Technical Director] ------------------------- ...

Can you matte fill a key in Carbonite (TD2)? I played with Key Fill in the MEs menu but that didn't do it. Danny ------------------------------ [Danny] [Skarka] Ross Pilot since Synergy [Producer, Director, Technical Director] ------------------------------

Thanks Les. I need to keep in mind that many functions for Touch Drive come from Carbonite Black and look for help videos there. I'm really happy with TD2, by the way. The other team that uses "a different brand" (but is twice the physical size) keep coming up to my space and asking about it. Everything ...

While I wasn't there when our TD2 was installed, when I first saw it, PGM was assigned to the top row of buttons, the section that could be interpreted as ME 1 where I use a TD2. But in Touch Drive, it's actually not. It's just a row of buttons. It can be any row you like. PGM/PST, ME 1, or any of the ...

Les mentions a video regarding Memory AI. I haven't been able to find it. Could you please give me a link? Thanks! ------------------------------ [Danny] [Skarka] Ross Pilot since Synergy [Producer, Director, Technical Director] ------------------------------

Yesterday I had an odd issue in ME 1. Despite the sources, the switcher would only do a take with auto trans or fader. This was a prebuilt effect that was previously working fine. I reset the ME (store-local row) and that didn't resolve the issue. Set to diss or wipe, the ME would only do a clean take, ...

That seems to resolve my issue as well as some other oddities I was experiencing with general default configurations. I understood the color coding but not how they are configurable in RStore. Enjoying TouchDrive and UltrA. I recommend. Flexible and deep or simple and straightforward. It's an operator's ...
