KAM par bar REM1 and Jester 24ml

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

this is my first post here and hoping i can get some advice.

 

I am using a KAM par bar REM1 which is an LED par bar with four pars but they are all controlled via the bar with one DMX in and out.

It doesn't exist in the fixture library and i've been asking around and someone made me a fixture but we have been talking since about sub-fixtures. He said about setting it up as separate fixtures so one being control and then four more to be RGB for each light.

I have been looking at the fixture editor software and saw the bit to add sub-fixtures. I was wondering if there is a way to use this to get the result i want which is to be able to easily use the four LED pars independent of each other easily.

 

Many thanks,

Matt

Personally this is the way i would go, but that is just because i have never ventured into sub fixtures.

 

I would be interested if you do get this method to work as i have a similar problem with some sun beams. :)

I've replied to your PM Matt, but probably best I publically post it here too.

 

Hi Matthew,
Sub-fixtures don't quite work like that. They work designed for fixtures where two separate DMX addresses are required - for example a lantern with a colour scroller, or a moving light like the VL1K where the tungsten lamp can be plugged into the house dimmers.
For fixtures like the KAM Parbar, where realistically they are four separate fixtures connected together, I would make separate profiles that control each part individually. This makes programming much easier. So, for the Parbar, I'd either make a "control" fixture that is just channels 1 -3, and then patch four RGB Dimmers (available in the library under "standard fixtures"), or I'd create a profile with the control channels and the first RGB channels (so channels 1 - 6), and then patch three more RGB Dimmers.
Does that make any sense?
Jon
