Generic 4in1 MovingHead RGBW file needed

Hi,

Trying to find or create a fixture file for some generic RGBW moving head fixtures for use with Solution desk running 7.9.4 ZeroOS.  

  • I have looked at Stagg MHB-HH20 which is nearly the same, containing pan, tilt, RGBW colours and in 9CH and 14Ch modes as is my unit. 
  • Struggling with the Fixture Editor assigning my "Master Dimmer"  parameter to a fader.  In my manual, the "Brightness" channel is split into three DMX address sub-sections :
    0-7 = OFF

    8-134 = Master Dimmer
    135-239 = Strobe

    240-255 = Open
    I seem to recall there's a way to assign the sub-addresses 8-134 to separate channels but struggling to work it out tonight.  Might also be helpful to put the Strobe on a separate channel.

Any help gratefully received to create a file with the sub-address assigned to a fader.

Thanks all,

Simon

PS.  When I get it connected there may be more questions  !

For this, your best bet is to create this as a “Shutter” parameter, with a default value of 134. Then tick the “Scale by Virtual Intensity” box for the parameter. 

Then add a Brightness parameter named “Dimmer”, with a default of 255, and tick the “Virtual Parameter” box. This will grey out the DMX address field. 

This dimmer will then by default scale the shutter parameter between 0-134, giving you a dimmer. If you do then need to access the strobe, you can then adjust the Shutter parameter. There isn’t a way to split a parameter, but this method should achieve what your after.

Hope this helps and makes sense, any queries let me know. 

Edward
