XLights outputting zero values on all addresses…

Does anyone know of a setting in xLights to prevent it outputting zero on all output addresses?  I have some DMX fixtures that I don't want a zero output sending to when not receiving any other levels -  I'm sure I've seen a setting somewhere for this but now can't find it at all.

Thanks in advance, Steve.

If you are running FPP (pretty much any recent version), in Output Processors, you can create a Set Value of "non-zero" to specific channel addresses. You set a Start Channel, then how many channels, and the Output value.

ps - while I use xLights for my sequencing, I don't use it to control anything once the FSEQ is created.

Thanks Jon, I will check this out, and now you mention the output processes that's probably where I've seen it before - had only been hunting in xlights as it's shown up as a problem while sequencing as "outputting to lights" spits zeros as every address defined on all controllers but that maybe unavoidable/need some sacn routing to get around.

Thinking about this from an xLights sequence viewpoint, if you created a group of the models you are concerned about and put it as the very first entry, from start to finish, and gave it an ON value of something non-Zero, that could work.

Any subsequent sequence lines below would, when compiled, overwrite that non-zero value with the desired value. That group would need to be the first entry in the Master View.
