    Default Increase Brightness feature.

    K.C.,

    When you use the ctrl + up arrow to raise the level on a range. I think it should ignore the 0 level channels. So if I have a section and I want to brighten it I could select it and do the normal but the events with the lights off would stay off. It addes so much work for me to go back and turn everything back off that it removes the convience of the feature. I am not sure if there would be a time when you would want it to effect the off channels but in my use it has not happened yet.

    What do you think am I missing something.

    Thanks for an awesume piece of software.

    KC, I would like to expand on this. What I would recommend is that you add a high and low cut off. Anything that is equal or outside these limits will be allowed to change.

    I am bumping this again as I again ran into this being a needed change. It took me 2 minutes to do some changes with this feature but an 45 minutes to clean up the cells it turned on. It was still quicker than doing it one at a time but man it could have been just 2 minutes with this change made.

    I am surprised no one else has asked for this before.


    Thanks K.C.

    If you had some cells in a sequence that are zero (and want to keep as zero), after applying the increase intensity function, would the find and replace function do what you want (find those cells with an intensity value equal to the intensity increase you just applied and set them back to zero).

    Yes that would be faster. Thanks! I had not thought of it. There are still times there would be cells with that valuse you want to stay that way so I still thinnk it would be nice if the function would leave off cells alone. But this will help alot.
