Color Fades or non-intensity parameters shift when fading submaster


Non-intensity parameters like color or pan/tilt shift when fading a submaster in and out, but you only want intensity to change.

Description/Explanation of Issue

Submasters have 2 master modes, Proportional and Intensity Master. This determines what parameters are controlled when the fader the sub is assigned to moves up or down. Proportional controls all parameters while Intensity controls intensity only. By default submaster master mode is set to Proportional.


You can change a submaster's master mode in the Submaster Tab.

  1. Navigate to Sub Tab 15.
  2. Select the Master tile for the submaster.
  3. In the drop down menu, select Int under Master.
