Hey Guys, I am in the process of purchasing mydmx so i am playing around with the software and getting my profiles in order. I came across 3 profiles that are not in the library already. I am going to work on 2 of them myself and see how I do with the editor, but the third I see you have already done for someone else, so I would much rather get it from you since I know it will be right then.
The one I am looking for is the VEI Novascan 250-1.
Ah, I didn't make it very clear, I download everything on my mac then transfer to my (cough....) windows laptop using a memory stick. Two reasons, I won't put my windows box online as a touch of the viruses mid show wouldn't be good and secondly, as a bit of an apple fan boy I can't bring myself to desecrate my macs with windows!
Make sure you are using the latest version of my dmx. The scan library editor should come bundled in the my dmx set up. Click on the link in my signature at the bottom of this post to go to the ADJ website product page for my dmx and download the latest version. Welcome to the forums. Sincerely,
I allready have the latest version. But they are still not in there. Are there no programs such as elation Light software that you can program you fixture in a extention that Mydmx needs. So i can deal with every light thats not in the list.
Because Sunstar and the RUIQI LASER (RD-350) and the Jumbo strobe are not in the list.
So do you have a programe or any profiles for this?
I recently bought the Galaxian 3D and the Fusion FX Bar 4, and now I just got a myDMX controller. When I look through the Profiles list, I can't find either one of my 2 devices. I am new to this and therefore having them are necessary if I am going to be able to use the myDMX. BTW, I did download the latest adj-profiles file, but I didn't see them there either.
the list is as i've show you above. For the moving head. Mouch more could i not find because the manual is very cheap/confusing.
Jumbo Strobe MKIII DMX The new JumboStobe MK3 DMX is a very powerful 1500 W Strobe unit in a professional compact housing. This Strobe can work as standalone, but it's also controllable by each DMX controller. It is possible to adjust the flash frequency and the dimmer from 0-100%.
Technical Info • Freqency: 1-12 Hz • Standalone mode • DMX-512 (2 channels) • AC 230 Volt, 50 Hz • Lamp: 1500W • Dimensions: 530x100x120 (LxWxH) • Weight: 2,5 Kg
OK, sounds fun. Since you're new to making profiles, let me make a couple of suggestions:
First, do take your time and don't rush. Of course, chances are you'll probably be like that anyways. Second, do test it a lot, including "Real world" if you can. If the "real world" matches the 3D Visualizer, you're probably in pretty good shape. Third, should your testing not be as "productive" as you hoped, please do contact again here and see if Jingles can go over your profile and see where any mistakes might have been made. It's too easy for beginners to make mistakes.
Best of luck to you on your profile making. I hope it goes well for you. I applaud one more MyDMX user making the attempt to make their own profiles. Here's to hoping many more also try to make them on their own as well.
I applaud you aswell. if you run into any snags and you can;t figure it out start a new thread and ask questions there. and also be sure to send me any profiles that you want checked out. my email is Jamesk At American DJ DOT COM
I'll go check my inbox in a bit. For some reason, I just can't wrap my head around it. I'll see what you came up with. I think this should be an "official" generic, because I think the hi-tech FX's are not going away soon for ADJ as a company or for people like me.
I was SO close. I was doing too much work and over-thinking it. I'm testing it right now. Should be fine. Thanks.
I do see two things I'd like to see in MyDMX that I'm not sure would be considered feature requests.
1: Have MyDMX be able to recognize NEW profiles added while the program is open. At least, exit the add/remove screen, theng et back and start over on the adding new fixtures part.
2: If I could assign a new profile to an existing fixture. In my case, I am using High-tech FX stuff, so I WAS using a generic. Now I want to switch to this new One ON/OFF profile you just made. Fortunately in my case, my advantage is that I have yet to assign any value data to those channels.
OK, time to go back to playing and make up for all that lost time I had. I've made no real progress today, but I still learned something thanks to that new profile.
I need help! I'm sorry that I need to waste your time with this, but can someone explain how I go about getting a profile for my new myDMX, so I can use the included software to control these two devices: Galaxian 3D Fusion FX Bar 4
And my second question is, why wouldn't everyone's profile requests be posted onto a web page so everyone could find and download the profiles they needed without being a burden or reliance on anyone from this forum (unless of course they are the one making the first profile request for a particular device).
From what it looks like, in order to get profiles, you are suppose to post a reply to this Profile Request thread, listing the devices you need them for. Then some mysterous amazing wizard comes out in the middle of the night and secretly e-mails the profiles to you?
Is the wizard backed up at the moment, because I did the above on Aug 21, and I am no closer to using my myDMX then I was when I bought it a couple weeks ago.
Can someone pleae point me off in the right direction? -Thanks! Bob
For one most of the newer lights are available on the my dmx webpage as a .Zip file download. Yes I am that wizard and I sent you the profiles you requested on the 22nd of August. Check the email inbox that you used to sign up for this forum. If it didnt go through check your spam folder just in case. Or if you dont have it at all email me James k AT American DJ DOT COM with the email that you will receive the files at. Sincerely,
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
