Bug in ICue Murals

I think its a bug at least...

After clicking the home button, the profiles show on the left.

Suppose I go to the first profile, and on the right are my devices, I uncheck the murals for the first device.

After going to the second profile, I see the murals has been unchecked on this device too.

I would have thought each profile would have independent choices for which devices have murals turned on or off.

Murals/Scenes are a master lighting overlay, but they are not profiles and have a more limited functionality.  In essence, a quick lighting only blanket to throw on top of what is already there (the actual profile).  If you need profile specific lighting, set this up in the profiles and you can customize each device specific to that profile.

I don't quite get it.

My point was that changing one profile shouldn't change another profile.

I don't see why it needs to either, if I can instantly decide if murals should apply to device or not by 1 click of the mouse, then it should easily be possible to just select the profile you want and apply murals to the selected devices under that profile.

I like it a lot, I think its just a little messy as it is.

And I'm not sure why murals should apply to devices, why not have the option to apply/not apply to individual components within the devices?

Murals/Scenes are not profiles and do not have device specific values.  They cannot be saved and exported or shared with others.   This is the third evolution of "Instant Lighting" and is a bunch of preset options.  It's not a complex customizable device by device design mechanic.  It's "I want rainbow everywhere" with one click and no set-up.  Or blue.  Or yellow.  And now more complex background or videos as the color palette, but it's still throwing a quick lighting preset over your actual profiles.   This is lighting for people who do not care about customization.  

 

There seems to be a current conflict with CUE.  Older CUE users have been setting up their profiles on a device by device basis since the beginning and don't understand why you would throw a lighting blanket over all your work.  Newer CUE users who started with CUE 4 simply clicked a lighting pattern on the front page (Scenes) the first day and never understood that was not the real control mechanism, only a superficial layer.  If you need your devices to have specific individual lighting effects or states, you need to program a profile to that end.
