Hi,

I'm hoping someone can help on the Martin Wizard Extreme patch (11channel) on Cuelux.

I connected it all up and loaded the light into Cuelux but the controls are all over the place. For example when you select a gobo all it does is swivel the barrel on the light and you can't actually select any of the gobos. I worked through all the controls but half of them don't work and the other half do the wrong thing.

I tried this on a couple of lights, loaded the latest version of the cuelux software and even tried a different addresses. Always got the same result.

Can someone of even Cuelux technical support please advise?

Thanks

Gurdev

the problem should come from the fixture file, you can check if the setting of the fixture file fit the manual using the builder software to correct it.

I'm not sure that's a fix I can implement is it??

I've only ever used Cuelux within the software i.e. patches & addresses, and not played with any of the technical stuff that supports it.

Surely Cuelux should control the light properly

Hi Martin,

Thanks for looking into this

Quick questions - how do I load this personality file into Cuelux to correct the error?

Also will this fix be implemented into the Cuelux software updates?

Hi Maarten,

I've loaded it in but it's still not correct.

The gobo selector still just causes the barrel to swivel and now I have a new toggle called 'cosh' which changes the gobo's instead. I think the code may be muddled up.

Can you amend please?

I have tested 11-channel mode and I don't see anything wrong. When I change gobos then only channel 5 changes, no other channels. So I am not sure how I can fix your problem. :(

Hi Maarten,

This is strange. So when you go to the Gobo selector and pick different Gobo patterns does it change correctly on the Martin Extreme light fisture? On mine all is does is twist the barrel.

To change the gobo's I have to use the 'cosh' which seems incrrect.

I pasted the personality file you sent me into personality folder in the visual productions folder - that was correct right? Should I be doing anything else?

Could you tell me your OS so I can give you the exact path to copy the file into?
