Firstly, Hi. I'm new to lighting and Dot2 though have been looking at others PC solutions. I've settled on Dot2 for PC after looking at all the obvious alternatives. I'm actually a soundie who is also running lights. I'm running a very small show. 10 LED Pars, 4 of the below lights, 2 moving gobo spot (equally as terrible) and 2x24 (3x8) LED Bars. The 10 pars belong to and are installed in the venue I work in (80-100 person cap), everything else I've purchased and will lug and add when I think it's required. The venues consoles are horrid and I want to up the quality of the shows. My solution needs to be easy and relatively minimally hands-on because I'm paid to do sound, not lights. I settled on Dot2 as I use a touchscreen PC and Midi Controller but also if I grow into this, MA seems to be the right direction to head in. You may well scoff at my choice of lights, those in other programs forums have, but I'm not being paid anything extra to improve the lighting at shows I mix, I'm doing it because I want the shows to be better for bands, audience and venue. The invested money and time learning and programming are significant to me.
I will have programming questions but it all starts with patching your lights which leads me too....
Secondly, I'm not sure this is the best forum as this is fixture profile related, but I think that forum is shut. I'm using it on Dot PC so here I am. Please feel free to move it.
I have a UKing B-136 mini moving head fixture (actually not branded UKing but it's the same down to the manual printing).
In 14ch mode (my preferred) Channel 5 has the following:
0-7 = OFF
8-134 = Master Dimmer
135-239 = Strobe Slow to Fast
240-255 = Open
I can't work out how to do that in the fixture builder. I am OK with losing out on the strobe functionality or using only the strobe functioning but adding a virtual dimmer but ideally, I could load and visualise it as per how it is. I've attached the manual for full channel assignment.
