fine pan / fine tilt

Postby pace514 » Fri May 20, 2022 2:53 pm

Hi Claude !!!

Trying to make a profile, I can't find the "fine pan" and "fine tilt" in the edit list. So, what is the way to add these parameters.

One more, time thanks a lot !

In the channel setup window's subchannel table, set the resolution or number of bytes of the pan subchannel to 2. There are no longer separate fine subchannels. Instead, the conversion from a floating point level to DMX is either to 8 bits or 16 bits depending on the resolution setting for the subchannel.

The bytes/resolution column is designated by the greek letter rho. The + column is the offset from the base dmx address.

I don't understand . I would need to 2 pan. one with rho at 1 and one with rho at 2 ? Can't have 2 pan. what should i add right after adding pan that i could put rho at 2 ? I have to admit that I'm a little bit lost...

Have a nice day !

Perhaps you could show me how it looks in the subchannels table. It's like I can have either pan corse or fine but not both ???

Thanks !

Use one of the built-in profiles and look at that.

Select a channel either by clicking or by typing its number.

Select Channel->Setup Hilited Channels...

Select the first channel part in the parts table.

Click the Set Type button.

Choose Martin->Mac Viper Profile

Look at the pan and tilt at the bottom of the list of subchannels.

There is no separate listing for fine. Coarse and fine are a single subchannel that uses two dmx addresses. The percentage setting of the subchannel in LXConsole is converted to 16bits when it is output.
