So basically I want to make a DDF for the Showtec compact lightset led. It is one device with 4 RGB led lamps. But the master dimmer and strobe are shared between them. Is this even possible. If so can anyone explain how it is done?
The thread marked as solved, but I can't see the solution.
I join the question. I have a similar device (INFINITE-BAR-6x15W-OSRAM-No-limit) with six independent RGBW sources, each with a separate TILT, but a common PAN. How to create a DDF file and how to control it separately, but sometimes treating all sources as a group, so that you don't have to set them up separately.
I'm joining this tread too. I've got 4 home made RGB devices by Holscher. The problem every device has RGB + RGB, so its impossible to create DDF with more than one R, G or B light.
The second question for the two RGB-LEDs is quite easy to solve: just add two Generic RGB Devices to your project.
The frist is more complicated due the specific device. One option could be to create in total 7 different DDFs. The first one include the main function of the device like PAN-rotation, dimmer, strobe, effects and effect speed. All other DDFs were only written for one beam, which includes the TILT-rotation and function for controlling the LED. The DMX-patch inside the DDFs is exact the same like written in the manual. When all DDFs were created, you add all 7 to your project and all 7 DDFs get the same DMX address.
You need to this like this way, because there is still no native support for so called multi-beam devices. This thread was closed automatically due to his age.
I hope, you both can follow my explanation. If not, you are welcome to ask further questions.
"just add two Generic RGB Devices to your project"
Its not so easy. As we can see Holscher LED dimmer has 10 channels. The first is Mode, 2-9 RGB, Fan, the last one "A". So adding two Generic Devices do not solve Mode option. How to distribute all channels the best way by two RGB Generic Devices???
Okay. I didn’t check the exact DMX patch of the controller. So in this case, you have to create one own DDF for the channel 1 and 8 (or 10). But for the channel 2 to 7, you can use of course the Generic RGB device twice.
Thanks, I will try. First time it was unsuccessful.
The solution is a little twisted, but it works fine.
And if it works, it's better to keep it that way.
