ok now it's working great, i've changed a little bite the .xml file but now the way it works is logical so it's fine! ;D
I just have an other question, why i cannot shut it down using the master fader or blackout? The shutter and dimmer work fine in the programmer so i thaught it was linked with the master? maybe i'm wrong?

Hi Julien,

Already a new beta has been posted on the website.
In this new beta release the issue of the master dimmer and blackout button is solved.

I have add a new product to my fixture file and it's wroking fine expt one small trouble, the black out general button and fader don't control my product dimer or shutter, but on the led barre it's working??? I tried to check some differences between the 2 fixture but i cannot see why it's wroking with the led barre and not with my LED PAR 64, maybe can you help me to find the key???
Here is my file:

just one small trick for thoose who try to make their own fixture file, you can use notepad++ it put colour in the code and it helps to understand... ;)

I see one differences between them...
Here the code you are using now for the RGB control:
Code: [Select]
            <part attribute="Colour RGB">
                <range function="Red MSB" offset="2">255,0</range>
                <range function="Green MSB" offset="3">255,0</range>
                <range function="Blue MSB" offset="4">255,0</range>
            </part>

Here you say 255,0 and not 0,255 !
I think it must be this:
Code: [Select]
            <part attribute="Colour RGB">
                <range function="Red MSB" offset="2">0,255</range>
                <range function="Green MSB" offset="3">0,255</range>
                <range function="Blue MSB" offset="4">0,255</range>
            </part>

With Best Regards,
Marten

yes but it'sbecause my PAR are a bite strange and at 0 they are ull and they need to be at 255 to be off...
So i've already read in the forum than inverting the max and min was possible and it works, even the shutter button works, it send 255 to all rgb dimmer chanel so it's fine, and the same for the global dimer in tthe programmer, it's working as it should, it just the link between the global black-out and global dimmer wich don't work..???
but thanks for looking! ;D

That's strange... :-\

Please try this:
Code: [Select]

<model label="PAR 64">
            <part attribute="Dimmer">
               <range function="Control MSB" offset="0">0,1</range>
            </part>
            <part attribute="Strobe">
                <range function="Linear" offset="0">0,127</range>
                <range function="Random" offset="0">128,253</range>
            </part>
            <part attribute="Colour RGB">
                <range function="Red MSB" offset="2">255,0</range>
                <range function="Green MSB" offset="3">255,0</range>
                <range function="Blue MSB" offset="4">255,0</range>
            </part>
            <part attribute="Colour">
                <range function="Scroll" offset="1">71,239</range>
                <slot>
                    <colour>CLR_RED</colour>
                    <range function="On" offset="1">0,9</range>
                </slot>
                <slot>
                    <colour>CLR_YELLOW</colour>
                    <range function="On" offset="1">10,19</range>
                </slot>
                <slot>
                    <colour>CLR_GREEN</colour>
                    <range function="On" offset="1">20,29</range>
                </slot>
                <slot>
                    <colour>CLR_CYAN</colour>
                    <range function="On" offset="1">30,39</range>
                </slot>
                <slot>
                    <colour>CLR_BLUE</colour>
                    <range function="On" offset="1">40,49</range>
                </slot>
                <slot>
                    <colour>CLR_MAGENTA</colour>
                    <range function="On" offset="1">50,59</range>
                </slot>
                <slot>
                    <colour>CLR_WHITE</colour>
                    <range function="On" offset="1">60,70</range>
                </slot>
            </part>
        </model>

I only put this in the code:
            <part attribute="Dimmer">
               <range function="Control MSB" offset="0">0,1</range>
            </part>


I can't test it here at the moment... maybe you have to play a bit with the >0,1<
A Dimmer function must work with the BlackOut button/fader.
I think you don't need to set this value in the editor during programming a cue/effect.

Good luck...
With Best Regards,
Marten

so i tried your solution, and now the link beetween the global dimmer and black out and the programmer are working, but as you add a "fake" dimmer chanel it just don't do anything  on my product, it just change chanel 0 from 0 to 1...???

Yes, it is only to link a Dimmer-function to the shutter-channel.
This means that the Black-out fader will gif a non-dim effect to your par64's and not a fade- in/out !

I think the Black-out function is now direct linked to the DMX Dimmer-channels and gifs a hard Zero to them.
That's why you can't link the Dimmer-function to your RGB channels because your are on at 0%

I don't now if Maarten can fix this in the software.
With Best Regards,
Marten

yes but what i don't understand it's why it's working with the led barre where i don't any any dmx chanel for dimmer too, and it's not working for the par... Maybe it's coming as you said from the invertion between 0 and 255, for each RGB chanel...
Maybe marteen will be able to help us a little more on this problem, because i don't think it's coming from the personalities files itself...

Hi julienlev,

We have checked the file that you have written for the Par64, it looks good.
We also have reproduced your error with the master fader, we found a small bug in the Cuelux regarding to this fixture.

This will be solved in the next release.
