The collection editor, as its name suggests, is used to edit
Collections are very helpful in a workflow where you create QLC+ functions dedicated to specific areas of your show. For example, you can create a number of Scenes to control only colors, some other Scenes to control only positions and so on. Then you can create a number of Chasers and EFX for automations.
When you have created all the basic elements of your show, you can then use Collections to build a sort of "shortcut" to compound scenes. For example a color Scene + a position Scene.
Note: Collections don't have speed setting; each function you include in a collection follows its own speed settings.
Important: The order of the Functions in a Collection is fundamental when dealing
with HTP/LTP usage or relative values. QLC+ will internally start the Functions of a Collection from the
first to the last, so if they use the same channels, just keep this in mind because
you might run into undesired effects.
For example a Scene setting Pan/Tilt channels + a EFX in relative mode must have a precise order: the Scene in the first position and the EFX in the second position.
