Hello,

i'm using Cuety in combination with an Ipad. I have two questions. Can i make a back up in the cloud or on a memory stick. So said differently, if the program crashes, i can install it again with an extern backup? the second question, I m usig a 4 channel switch pack, MKII bij Showtec. This fixture doesn't pop up in the list. Can i use another fixture instead ? From a different type? And which one?

Thank you if you reply.

Hello @Jorismaas,

You can connect your iPad to a system with iTunes installed and from there you can copy your show-files somewhere locally to back them up. Now for your second question, you can use generic fixtures. In the Generic category you can choose from single dimmers to any 4 channel fixture.

Greetings,

Michael.

Hello Michael,

thank you for your answers. If I understand it correctly I can use the fixture dimmer for a switchpack from Showtec.

Hello @Jorismaas,

Yes, instead of selected Showtech/switchpack in your Patch, you will select Generic/(and then the fixture that might suit you better). For example you mentioned you have have a 4 channel switchpack, a RGBA fixture will be ideal for this.
