Is it possible to get an random chase in the offset in Dynamics?

Right now its only possible to sort fixtures random. I like to have a random offset each cycle of an chase dynamics so it will not repeat the pattern.

No it is not currently possible.

 

We are always interested in adding new features :-)

 

To clarity, you want a new random selection order every time the effect starts a new cycle?

Yeah because the current way is to shuffle the order of fixtures around and that will never be "random" to me, it is Shuffle.

And a random chase should have as you said new order ever time it starts over, or random order every time?

I think a random offset in dynamic each cycle only would work for very specific settings.

 

I have a tip for a 'non-repeating' dynamic though:  (Don't know if it will work for bman63s need)

 

Make the dynamic you want

Shuffle the selection order and make a fan on offset

Select for instance odd fixtures and adjust rate slightly.

 

The two halves will drift apart and you probably won't see a repeating pattern.

 

 

PS. Remember that random sometimes looks weird.

Pero, how does Random Bounce work?

 

Is it like this for a 6 step chase - 1,4,2,5,3,6,3,5,2,4,1 (eg symmetrical)  or something different?

Sorry for my English... I was thinking more of simple Bounce function, although your Random Bounce is a good idea, symmetrical or asymmetrical, the way you describe it.

 

Cheers,
