    LED Tubes

    I did mention the brand name, but should have done named it right away completely: JB Systems - Tube LED
  2. Thank you! I had indeed an older file. Had some trouble with some lighting products during setup last night. Hopefully this disk with new library will help me. Alex
  3. Not sure where to put this thread, but I just downloaded the latest fixture type editor and I expected to be different from the one I had. That one is 2 years old. But I don't see many changes. I am using some fixtures during a show this weekend, that cannot be found in the library. I think it's a bit weird that a Martin Mac 250 Entour cannot be found. And although it's not brilliant, I assumed that the Oby3 and Oby5 from Geni were implemented by now. Am I missing something? Don't I have the latest editor? I have been told that the oby's are already in the console, but wanted to bring my own library just in case. Problem is that I don't have a manual of the Oby series, so I really have no idea in which way the dmx channels are used. Not a very big problem, but are new units not implemented? For instance, If I make a personal fixture for the Oby's, it would be nice that this was implemented right away. This way we should not all be busy inventing the wheel again. Well, just a thought.

    LED Tubes

    Just thougt about it, that I have to work with LED Tubes for the first time on a frog this weekend. And I am wondering what is the best way of using them. These are the kind of LED Tube that works through a separate controller. The controller will be part of the dmx line and the controller gets a dmx value, probably after the par's. Then, 5 (or 4?) dmx addresses will be needed. With the first I can scroll through the programms of the seperate controller, 2 speed, 3 pauze times, 4 strobe I believe. I am not sure if 5 has a function. If I am right, there is also an RGB function active if channel 1 is 0%, them channel 2 = R, 3 = G, 4 = B. Hm, I really though they used 5 dmx channels, but cannot find a manual of the JB tubes right now. What is wise to do? See this as a fixture? Or just plant it on the faders like par lighting? Then I can chance things on the faders. But I think it could be handy to also put them under the palletes, so that the tubes are red if I choose red to be the colour of the moving heads. But what fixture am I going to use if I decide to see it as a fixture? My problem with these things is the spees of the programms. It's almost impossible to let them run a program in a speed that suits a certain number. Well, this is a terror party, so the overall speeds will be quite high (too high for me I think, already day dreaming about my well earned sleep and rest for my ears after this party). Anyone used these things before and any comments?
