Hello,

I have bought Cuelux and I need a fixture for the 256 Channel DMX Mode for American DJ, Revo 4.

On Page 14 of the manual

http://www.americandj.com/pdffiles/revo_4.pdf

you will find the DMX protocol tabel.

The Traits & Value are:

Ch2, Green LED, Value 0-127 Off, Value 128 - 255 On
Ch3, Blue LED, Value 0-127 Off, Value 128 - 255 On

(copy/paste this to your American DJ personality-file... see here the > How To <)
This one is OK for your Revo type and for I think the new one: http://www.americandj.eu/media/media/manuals/E_revo_4.pdf
The new one has now a level-control for each channel and not only ON/OFF.
For your type, just use only level 0% for OFF and 100% for FULL/ON.

I made also some different fixture-modes (1x1, 2x1, 3x1, 4x1 and 8x1) now you can select your best choice to work with.
This means that when you select by patching the 8x1 modes, you will get 8 Revo-channels in one Fixture-screen (in the Main-Window).

There is one thing what not will work with the black-out fader/button !
All WHITE colors are not a Dimmer-function, this means they will stay on when you press the Black-out button.
The only way is to release the cue/chase play-list to make a full black-out incl. the White colors !

The most easy way to make some patterns, is first to make a raster-plan from 16x16...
__1_2_3_4_5_6_7_8_9_10_11_12_13_14_15_16
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
Now you can wright all separate LED-channels in that raster-plan and also give the raster-blocks the right LED-color.
When this is done, you can start programming some cue-lists and groups with different patterns with one or more colors.

It's in the beginning a bit more work, because CueLux doesn't have a special editor for this type of spots.

Hi Verdan,

Please find the FXT file attached.

Note that I've added the 8ch-mode. In this way, you can patch the 8-channel-mode 8 times to get 256 channels :)
