A new Service Pack for Clarity LX consoles is now available. This is a major update with numerous bug fixes.

Details of the changes are listed below.
The service pack can be applied to all LX consoles.
We urge all users to update to this release.
If you encounter any issues applying this Service Pack then please contact your local LSC support person.

Note that each software release includes the latest user manuals and the latest fixture library as at the time of release. However, users should be aware that more up to date Fixture Libraries may be available and users should check on this site.

Service Pack 21 can be downloaded from here.

New Features


Added a fade time to the 'On' function, so that the lights fade up instead of snapping.
- with lights selected, clicking 'On' (with an empty command line) will use a default 1s fade time. Using '@ full' however will snap as before.
- the 'keypad-on-time-ms' advanced option can be used to set a different on time (e.g. 'keypad-on-time-ms = 2000' for 2s).

Allow pending file operations to be aborted.
- It's now a 2-step process: if there are pending file ops when the user attempts to save a wait dialog will display, with the option to cancel pending file ops.
If they choose to cancel then a second wait dialog appears waiting for the cancel to complete
(any currently in-progress writes will need to finish before the cancel completes.
The user can choose to cancel waiting, but in that case the show will not be able to be saved, but can be saved-as somewhere else.

Added ability to change the colour of a dimmer icon in rig view (to show Gel colour).

Hold LX Delete key and press select button or action button to clear.

Added the ability to designate a show as read-only.
- added a 'Show is read only' checkable option to the Show menu.

Added an 'Insert Mark Cue' and 'Groups Of' options to the command centre.

Added option in settings menu to toggle whether default freesets are loaded when Clarity starts up.

Added Option to not load default Presets

Updated to the latest Carallon fixture library - Rev 13.1.399

Bug Fixes


CLR-xxxx done: Report an error if attempt to load a 2.3 show into 2.4 without a legacy library installed
CLR-xxxx fixed: Mac Aura (and others) patch with separate global and main-beam sections, that should be combined
CLR-1679 fixed: Clone dialog doesn't show all sections of a compound fixture

CLR-1727 fixed: Undocking some windows (rig, performance) results in blank sections of windows on LX

CLR-1718 fixed: Imported shows appear twice in the recent files drop-down, one of which is in the temporary 'import' location
                        (and is not removed if the imported show is later deleted)

CLR-1719 fixed: Select all after odd/even does not operate as the user expects.
                        - renamed it to Reset Next/Prev

                        - Programmer window generic intensity control targets Master Intensity as well as Intensity
                          (not possible to match behaviour of LX Universal controls)
