I'm running the most recent version of 3.0 (Jan 2020) on Windows 10. I'm programming a show from home for a gig. I'm utilizing the 3D Visualizer, interface, and no lights plugged in. Everything works except the effects engine in 3.0. When I try the below with the same version on OS X, I get the same result.
I'm experienced with this software, having used it many times for theater concerts. When I go to add a matrix effect in the edit window, nothing appears in the fixture viewer. Same for pixel effects, nothing happens to the fixtures. Also, when I add a Pan/Tilt effect with my heads selected, nothing happens. I generally leave blind editing turned off. It's as if the effects engine is frozen from start or something.
Would appreciate the feedback. Do I need to revert to the most recent version prior to Jan 2020? Or is there something else I need to do? Thank you!
