Is it possible via any sensible technique to put a curve on the intensity mechanical shutter?!! Please don't ask why...! Anne/John you'll understand!

Cheers

Would it be sensible to put the Int Mech parameter in a part, and apply the curve to that?

Thanks Luke, I think that may be the best if not the only solution. Just makes it a little clunky I guess but I'll offer it. Anne prepare for that one to be on the Austin list when you're over!! I obviously don't care enough about the subtleties of shutter closure! :-)

Or, indeed, to add a profile curve to ANY parameter on a fixture.

We had a unit supplied with a SNAFU'ed tilt limit and just had to dump it out of the show until the hire co. could come in with software to reset it. A simple curve would maybe have sorted us out.

I've commented on a similar request (older thread that seemed to resolve with using cue parts). But I too would like the ability to curve any parameter (Globally in its fixture profile). Nearly every mover I use gets an intensity curve, but some I'd like to curve other parameters as well.
