Custom effects

Recommended Posts

Evening all, 

Is it possible to create custom effects at all? 

I have some fixtures that output only a few select pastel colours when I choose the "rainbow" effect and I'm after some more vibrant colours and a larger selection of them. Is this something I can create myself, and not in a chase?

Hi Rob,

I think for this I would be tempted to use a chase, as I can then create the exact colours I want, record them as palettes, and then create my chase. This also gives you the benefit of tweaking colours and updating the colour palettes, and the chase updating automatically. You can however manipulate the existing colour effects. Does the fixture have a white colour parameter? If so make sure this is dialled to 0%, to ensure you've got the most saturated colours. 

You can also experiment with the "Waveforms" tab in Effects. This allows you to go in your currently selected fixtures and apply functions to each parameter. For example you could put a sine wave on all colour parameters, and apply a speed, size and offset to each one. You should find this will start to create vibrant colours fading through, so have a play with the parameters, and then record it to an effect palette, to easily recall later.

Hope that held, any queries let me know.
