You can select fixtures from what is on stage using the Live key. Fixtures are considered to be on stage if their intensities are non-zero. If you wish to select fixtures that are onstage but have intensity values at zero then you can use Pig + Live.
Below are some examples of how live can be used:
Live Enter : selects all fixtures that are on stage with intensities above 0.
Pig + Live Enter : selects all fixtures that are on stage regardless of intensity.
You can apply a mask to the selection. This allows you to select all fixtures that are onstage that are assigned to particular values or palettes. For example:
50 : selects fixtures that are on stage at 50%.
80 : selects fixtures that are on stage at 50% to
0 : selects fixtures that are at 0%.
Using a palette as a mask:
Live [Blue] : selects fixtures that are on stage that are at their ‘Blue’ palette settings.
You can use the Live and / keys together to select fixtures that are both live on stage and in a specified fixture selection:
5 selects fixtures that are in the range 1 to 5 that are live
1 selects fixtures that are in Group 1 that are live on
Note that in all the above examples using the Live key only selects fixtures; it does not alter values in the Programmer or editor.
Fixtures that do not have an intensity parameter such as a colour scroller are always considered live on stage and will be selected when using the Live key.
