I too, am a noob. I have lots of generic lights that I bought on line in anticipation of a big, well paying gig. They’ve worked fine in “sound” and “show” modes, but now I’d like to grow and program some scenes and some chases, but I can not figure out how to address my lights. I have some generic 6 channel pars and some generic movers I can’t get under control from my ADJ Operator Pro. I also have a fog machine I can’t get under control from my board. If there is a from the ground up (here is how you determine how many channels you have, this is how you program a basic scene, here is what you do when your lights don’t do what you think they should do) book or guide out there, I would be happy to pay good money for that. Or, even a face time assistance program!
