fixtures Defenition not mapped any more

Post by funkytwig » Wed Jan 03, 2018 8:16 pm

I defined a fixture and it was working. I accidentally moved it and it stopped working, all channels are now showing up as dimmers, not what they were defined for. I tried importing the fixture and it does not work. Ive also put it back in C:\Users\Ben\QLC+\Fixtures and it still does not work. Have restarted QLC+.

Say what?
How can a file be broken if you move it?
When your custom fixture isn't in the personal fixtures directory QLC+ cannot find it - hence it will try to look into the supplied fixture library. When you start QLC+ and it cannot find your type and make, QLC+ will throw an exception notice...

and now I'm mingled what happened in your case... (wondering if when QLC+ cannot find a fixture and you ignore the notice it will reset the fixture(s) in your project with dimmers?)
All electric machines work on smoke... when the smoke escapes... they don't work anymore

I can add a new fixture of the type I defined and I get all the channels showing correctly. The existing ones just show dimmer for each channel, not the ones, such as Speed/colour, I defined. I went in and changed them from generic/Generic and it worked fine. I guess its becasue I loaded/saved workspace when the fixture was missing. I dont think there was a warning it could not find a fixture.
