  4. Using a Flex/FlexMax as a Slave

    Using a Flex/FlexMax as a Slave

    Note that this is the old way to add slaves to a show.  Director now handles slaves automatically when you add a Flex or FlexMax to a show.  Inputs on the slaves can also be used in the Master show.  The only reason to use this article would be if you want the slave to play audio along with the master.

    Need more outputs?  Learn how to slave additional Flexes or FlexMaxes to your show by setting them into Slave Mode.  This allows you to program all the animation in a single show and have it all stored on the master controller.
