Hi,

Here's another one I'm having trouble with;

The LEDJ Color Burst -

This profile nearly works.



fixture "Color Bust1"
{
    dimmer msb  1   1,189
    strobe
    {
        offset      0
        on      190,250
    }
    shutter
    {
        offset      1
   control      251,255
    }
    color red   2   0,255
    color green 3   0,255
    color blue  4   0,255
}


The RGB channel works as they should but the strobe channel does not work at all.

The dimmer channel gives does not go all the way OFF and when full up it is still on strobe

If I move everything up one slot so that the 'dimmer' channel actually ends up in the first postition of the colour mix group, the dimmer channel then works as per the manual;
CHANNEL 4
Blackout: 0
Intensity: 001 > 189
Strobe: 190 > 250
Full On: 251 > 255

Can you help?

hi Rayco,

- Try giving the strobe part offset 1
- change the dimmer msb range in 0,189
- you can omit the shutter part, Cuelux will automatically take 0% dimmer as blackout value.

This personality is quite different then the manual I find online, but if it works it works....

There seems to be two versions of this fixture, one is;

R,G,B,control

and the other is;

control,R,G,B

I wish someone would come up with ONE standard for LED's and one for movers;

pan,tilt, gobo, colour, etc.

on the same channel always.

Why don't we petition the manufacturers?

Hi Maarten,

That fixed the problem of them not going completely out and the channels are right now.

Only thing that would be handy is for dimmer channel to work all the way.

On this setting;


fixture "Color Bust1"
{
    dimmer msb     1      0,189
    strobe
    {
        offset      1
        on      190,250
    }

    color red   2   0,255
    color green 3   0,255
    color blue  4   0,255
}


The dimmer channel works 0-100% at 80% of Fader travel them from 81%-100% it goes on to strobe.

Can this be made to work only as a dimmer all the way to top?

Thanks

Sounds like the dimmer control goes from 0,X where X is a value less than 189. You could find that level by fiddling with the dimmer fader setting it to the point where dimmer=100% and no strobe is activated yet, then check the dmx value outputted on that channel by the options->dmx-monitor.

the strobe definition should then be:

   strobe
    {
        offset      1
        control   X+1,250
    }

(replace X+1 by actual number)

Got the dimmer channel working on these now, perfect for truss-warmers.

Only thing is that it comes up as a five channel fixture, when it was set to 4 channels it would not work properly.


code;


fixture "Color Burst"
{
    dimmer msb     1      0,151
    strobe
    {
        offset      1
        on      152,250
    }
    color red   2   0,255
    color green 3   0,255
    color blue  4   0,255
}

Hi Rayco,

The fact that it comes up as a five channel fixture could be caused by the fact that the first offset of the fixture is 1.
Normally the first offset that is used would be 0.

Is the rest of the personalty file working properly?

Yes it works perfectly.

If I change the offsets and make it 4 channel, it all goes to hell.

Had bother with these with a desk as well.

Found that there is a newer version of these with an 'audio' pot on the back.

Profile for these;




fixture "Color Burst new"
{
    dimmer msb  3   1,189
    strobe
    {
        offset  3
        control 190,250
    }
    shutter
    {
        offset  3
        on      0,0
    }
    color red   0   0,255
    color green 1   0,255
    color blue  2   0,255
}
