Title: Macro channel in Cuety
Post by: jjvdlaan on February 16, 2021, 07:43:51 PM

I have fixtures with macro channels,  but those channels are not showing up in cuety,   Is macro supported  or not?
1 of the fixtures is the showtec compact par 7 tri in 8 channel mode.

Cuety does not have a macro channel. But you can use it if you want, there are two ways.
You can edit the personality to add the macro channel to a different fader, for example the gobo fader. This is done using vBuilder, but it is a bit tricky.

The easy way is to just patch a single dimmer fixture on the channel that you are missing. It will show the address in red, because you are overlapping with the Showtec fixture but as long as the channel is unused on that it should all work nicely!
So if you patch the Showtec Compact par at address 1, you can patch a dimmer fixture on channel 6. It will control the macro channel.  (Just add 5 to the start address of the Showtec fixture to get the macro channel)
