Hi,

ive just received my Time core and im having an issue trying to trigger our Laser Software by a timer set on the Time Core unit. Pangolin Beyond is seeing the time code over ArtNet totally fine. The issue is trying to get the timecore to trigger timecode when the computer clock hits a certain time.

Ive had a look around for some tuturial videos but theres very little around for these units sadly  :(

Can anyone help me, i guess im doing something wrong,

Thanks

Lee

If I understand you right you want to start your laser show at a specific time of the day triggering the start of the timecode.

In this case you need to find a software that will be able to send a UDP, or OSC or TCP message from the computer to the TimeCore to make it start the timecode.
Quickly reading informations about Beyond, it seems that you can have pangoscript sending OSC messages. But I don't know if Pangoscript can have the clock as input.

I hope this will help you, ;)
