Hi Maarten.

Thank you for your answer, i will try the new cuelux version with all the new fixture files and report back.

"Orion" Fixture:

- with the old cuelux version the orion has justed worked in 4 channel mode but I will use 7 channel mode
- The dimmer has worked with 4 channel mode
- yes please
- do you mean that there is no light on, on all 4 lenses? in the manual on ch3 there are blackout values 0-9

see: http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/747/neu1tr.jpg

best regards
tobias



Regarding the 'orion' fixture:
- which mode do you use? 4-channel or 7-channel
- does the dimmer funtion work?
- shall we set the fixture fixed to 'pattern' mode? 'chase' mode reuses the strobe channel, which might be confusing.
- the manual says there is a shutter and a strobe range on Ch3, but it doesn't indicate a 'idle' or 'no function' range. I am sure this is a fault in the manual, otherwise the unit would not work properly. Do you know a DMX value range on Channel 3 where there is no shutter or strobe active?

hi Tobias,

Please find improved version of the Orion and TR-5 personalities attached.

If the Orion doesn't work well then I would require a clear answer to this question:...

- the manual says there is a shutter and a strobe range on Ch3, but it doesn't indicate a 'idle' or 'no function' range. I am sure this is a fault in the manual, otherwise the unit would not work properly. Do you know a DMX value range on Channel 3 where there is no shutter or strobe active?

...before I could make any more improvements.

Good luck!

Hey Maarten.

I havent used the Eurolite TR-5s since our last conversation. Now i have tested it and the following works:

 * select a gobo
 * rotate the gobo
 * strobe
 * shutter

But one problem exists, if i press blackout or set the master fader to "0" the TR5s leave the shutter open (= white beam).

Please could you take a look at the fixture file and fix this.

I have a gig on saturday and must use the TR-5.

Thanks
Tobias

This is a thing in the Black-out function...

If you use this code:
Code: [Select]
fixture "TR-5"
{
    class "Flower"
    dimmer msb 0 0,5
    strobe
    {
        offset          0
        control         6,39
    }
    gobo
    {
        offset 0
        slot 40,45 GB_OPEN static
        slot 46,51 NO_01 static
        slot 52,57 NO_02 static
        slot 58,63 NO_03 static
        slot 64,69 NO_04 static
        slot 70,75 NO_05 static
        slot 76,81 NO_06 static
        slot 82,87 NO_07 static
        slot 88,93 NO_08 static
        slot 94,99 NO_09     static
        slot 100,105 NO_10 static
        slot 106,111 NO_11 static
        slot 112,117 NO_12 static
        slot 118,123 NO_13 static
        scroll          226,255
    }
    barrel  1 stop 0 cw 27,130 ccw 150,255
}

The TR-5 must go dark when you press the Black-out button.
I changed the Shutter to a Dimmer function.
In the Black-out "only" all Dimmers will go to 0% (see DMX-monitor) all other parameters will stay in the same %.

I don't now if Maarten can at the Shutter-function to the Black-out code.

Otherwise use the code what I did show you.
To open the Shutter, please use now the Dimm function in your editor.
With Best Regards,
Marten

Sure... it's better to at the Shutter to the Black-out button/fader.

But I'm not sure if Maarten can fix this before Tobias get his next gig  ;)

Until the update Tobias can use the code with the Dimmer-function.
With Best Regards,
Marten

Thx.

Could you please give me a date when you expect to implement a feature so we can control the shape speeds througth an midi channel?

I have asked this several times.

Here ist the thread: http://www.visualproductions.nl/forum/index.php?topic=1000.msg2520#msg2520

and my idea...

If a cuelist is on pause (halt) and the paused step has a shape, than the speed push encoder of the bcf sets the speed of the shape and not of the cuelist.

If a cuelist is running and there is currently no halt on a cue then the speed push encoder of the bcf sets the speed of the cuelist.

thx

At this moment we can not give an exact date, but it is on the top of our "ToDo"list.
