This may be a small bug but it's becoming an annoying one.
Though it doesn't seem to happen with all LED Fixtures (PAR's or Strips) the majority I come across seem to exhibit this same error with VDMX.

The problem seems to be with the Primary Attributes controls in the main window.  Whenever I try to dim a fixture to 0% (the left hand side) it then jumps back up to 100%.  However if I place a fader in Visual Touch the dimmer works all the way between 0-100%

Any ideas from anybody?

hi Ross,

The bug is indeed annoying. A workaround is to add "class yokespot" to the personality file. In that case vdmx thinks it's dealing with a moving light and the bug does not occur. For instance:

Code: [Select]
fixture "RGB 01x"
{
class yokespot
color red 0 0,255
color green 1 0,255
color blue 2 0,255
}
