Yesterday I attended a class on how to use the Artiste set rezzer.
I’ve used set rezzers before, but the Artiste has some unique abilities, including the ability to use no copy and/or no mod items.
It also offers the ability to crossfade up to 6 sets/scenes directly from the HUD.
Now, while I’ve not used fades much in routines, they are pretty standard fare in dance shows these days.
So I was surprised to learn that some dancers have encountered issues when using fades.
I’m not really clear on the exact problem, just that something with the alphas goes wonky and things don’t completely disappear/reappear as they are intended.
I was also surprised to discover that some dancers had mothballed certain routines because of the issue.
I have to wonder if it’s really widespread, given that I still see fades used on a pretty regular basis in shows.
Perhaps others have found a workaround that some don’t know?
Have you encountered this issue?
How did you solve it?
