    I currently have four projectors with their FB3s. Want I want to do is be able to send the Targeted Beam cues to all 4.
    I have setup four new zones (Target 1, Target 2, etc). Within the projection zones settings for Targeted Beam I have added the four new zones under the Also To tab but it is not working.

    To check i was doing things right I tried it with the Main Graphics zone and it works fine.

    I am sure I have seen somewhere an option about re-routing the Targeted Beams but cannot find it.

    I am using 588.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Rich,

    TargetBeam system is similar to DMX, but with dedicated rendering of output. It processed separatelly, not like a frames from cue. Really - a special, separated subsystem. "Also To" do not work for it, and should not. The first reason is logic of this subsystem, the second reason - safety.

    I recommend you to create additional Beams. For target beams you need to have ability to setup each personally. I do not see other option, just more beams. The sequencing and control - this is another story. It should be possible to add higher level control. I made a note.

    Thanks for getting back to me Alexey.

    I have an idea of what I am going to do and will try it out over the weekend.
