Brightness Channel

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Got 4 fixtures, 48 generics. How do I go about programming brightness into memories? I can get the fixtures to dim ok but when I get to the start of the memory stack, all fixtures brightness are off even though when I get to the next memory this should dim them up but doesn't!!!! This is most confusing and I am obviously doing something wrong

 

Also, can I copy fixture brightness to a submaster as the wheel does not allow smooth dimming of fixtures.

 

TIA

Si

Make sure the manual dimmers (the control wheel) is set to 0 before you start using the memories! It's also possible the fixture brightness is stored in one of your submasters.

Brightness channels are processed HTP, that means whichever part of the desk outputs the highest value "wins the race". So even if your memory is dimming to 0, when there manually set to 100% they'll stay at 100. Look as it as a fader (also HTP) being at 100%: it'll always output.

Yes you can put the fixture brightness onto the submasters. If you lower all other channels and just raise the relevent fixture brightnesses with the wheel, when you program the submaster, it will be recorded. Note that fixture brightness levels are always recorded in submasters and memories.

 

If you are in full mode all other fixture information will be recorded onto the subs as well, so you may well be better putting the desk in partial mode so only the brightness parameter is recorded.
