Dimmer and shutter/strobe on same DMX Channel

Recommended Posts

Guest Fred

Hello,

Is there a way to create fixtures with dimmer and shutter/strobe controlled by the same DMX channel ?

For such fixture, we would need the first part of the DMX channel only to be assigned to the channel fader while the other part can be controlled thru a coding wheel.

 

Thank you for your assistance.

 

Best regards,

 

Fred

Hi Fred,

What you can do is add a Virtual Intensity channel to the fixture using the Fixture Editor software with a default of 255. Then set the Shutter/Strobe to be scaled by virtual intensity with its default set to intensity at maximum.

This then allows the fixture’s channel fader to scale intensity, and you can then use the encoder wheel to access strobe. 

Hope that helps

Edward

Hi Edward,

 

Thank you for this hint. It helps a lot !

 

I've got my FLX S24 for a few days now and I'm discovering all the rich features your products can offer.

 

I'm really looking forward to my next show so that I will be able to use it in real ;-)

 

Fred
