  • 117 Sel At Basic Time – Remove individual timing for fixtures selected.
  • 116 Set Cue To Basic Time – Remove all individual fade and delay times from the current cue.
  • 113 Individual Time Set – Apply fade to all parameters of all selected fixtures.
  • 112 Delay Set – Apply delay to all parameters of all selected fixtures.
  • 111 Flip – Flip the pan and tilt of a moving light.
  • 110 Delay FCB – Enter a delay time to apply to all parameters except Intensity for all fixtures in the Programmer.
  • 109 Trackball Normal (Course/Fine) – After using Macro 301 to enter what user number you are, can change the resolution of the trackball.
  • 108 Smart Delay – Operates same as Macro 107 but with entry for a different delay range for just Color.
  • 107 Delay Offset – Enter a delay time range to apply to all parameters of selected fixtures in the programmer.
  • 106 Repeat Delay – Apply the delay ranges set from Macro 107.
  • 105 Reverse Delay – Apply the delay ranges set from Macro 107 in the reverse order.
  • 104 Shuffle Selection – Shuffle the order of the fixtures in the Programmer.
  • 103 Invert – Invert the selection of fixtures in the Programmer.
  • 102 Even – Select even fixtures in Programmer.
  • 101 Odd – Select odd fixtures in Programmer.
  • 131 Form Color Effect – This creates a 2 to 6 step color effect using the effect engine. You need to know the raw percentage values of RGB for each color you are going to create (Simulates an absolute effect on the Eos). This creates two things: An Effect and a Form. The Form is where your RGB values are stored and work together with the effect. The macro asks you for an open slot to create a form and an effect. Finally it asks you for the number of steps and the values for each color. When you go to a new show and want to bring over these effects, use import and not PSR. PSR will mess up the forms and lose their labeling. When you import the effect, the form will automatically import as well.
  • 132 Edit Form Color Effect – Used to refine the color values for a form already created using Macro 131. You’ll need to know the number of the form you want to edit before starting the Macro.

Then create a Preset 0.920 that has your fixtures at full in their default/open state.
