I have built a sequence and want to have the custom effect (which happens to be a "twinkle" of white with the non twinkle time in blue) fade out at the end of the song. I have followed the instructions in the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTr6tZ7JiaU @ <> 3:27) but it seems that with version 8H I cannot do this. Has there been a change to how this is accomplished or could this a potential bug?

Thanks in advance!

Ah yes the "Master Lighting Channel" is the solution to this issue.

I've been trying to get a Ramp UP to work at the beginning of my show.
My Workflow:
Go to 'Manage Channels' > 'Manage Master Lightning Channels'
Check 'Active'. Name=Master Lighting Control - #Channels=0
Click OK

Go to 'Manage Channels' > 'Select Channels and Assign to Display Group'
Double Click the Work Group
Click 'Modify List'
Check 'Work' Name=Master Lighting Control. Universe=0. Channel=0. Order=0
Save Changes

On the sequence I put a Ramp UP at the beginning of the 'MLC'.
Go to OutPut > Select OutPut Method and Compile for Show
Click 'Compiled Data for Show'
Master Lighting Management Window opens. Active is checked - Name=Master Lighting Control, #Channels=0
OK.

Am I doing something wrong?
