Hi i have a new light fixture again from Kam. would you please do a profile for it for my dmx?
..Below is the fixture info that their engineers have given me as info is not avail on their site.
The DJ250 barrel is a four channel control again set the addresses on the DIP switches (Binary): - DMX Mode will be triggered automatically when DMX signal is detected.
Channel 1 - Pan Movement 0-255 one end of movement to other end, 128 - centre.
Channel 2 - Barrel rotation 0-9 No function. 10-115 Barrel continuous forward rotation from fast to slow. 116-137 No function. 138-245 Barrel continuous backward rotation from slow to fast. 246-255 No function.
VIP your profile will be done by the end of the day. and len i apologize for the delay in response. I'm emailing you your profile now. Check your email account that you used to sign up on these forums. Sincerely,
I was going to write my own profile for my Laser. (Laser-UK, Club Scene). However, I see that someone has previously asked for the same. (DJMike_123 - 1st April, 2009). If you still have this profile, I would be grateful if you could mail me a copy? Cheers, AndyH
Hi James. There are actually 3 similar profiles - X-MOVE LED, X-MOVE LED rev.1 & X-MOVE LED rev.2. The closest to the X-MOVE Plus is the rev.2 which I have amended slightly to suit the Plus. Since i cannot see a way to attach it here i will mail it to you for future reference. Cheers AndyH
Sounds good but let me correct you. Channel 4 VALUES 64-71, etc. Just trying to get us all on the same page without any misinformation spread. not trying to be a nerd that corrects everyone's mistakes. haha Sincerely,
OOOH SORRY!!!! I haven't "Messed" with this profile before it is tested, I have modified an old profile to suit a new fixture for which a profile doesn't exist. These changes were made inaccordance with the DMX Traits from the Instruction Manual, the source of any new profile. If you don't like it, delete it.
I'm sorry I didn't mean to be rude at all. Or upset you. I assumed you were making changes to the profile cause you already had your lights and found errors with the traits from the manual to the actual working units. Suppose that's what I get for assuming. lol. Didn't mean any disrespect. The traits from the x move and the x move plus are identical according to the manual so there is no need for a "New" profile unless someone finds some changes. I know our manuals are sometimes off. Let me know what you find and again I do apologize. Sincerely,
Personally, as much as I like and "trust" the 3D Visualizer with MyDMX, I don't trust profiles until they've been tested.
My recent example involves properly configuring and oriented my Chauvet Q-Spot 150's so they match what the 3D Visualizer shows.
It's tough to work on profiles for lights you don't have. Only way anyone trying to help you out is educated trial and error. I also think it would be a nice idea to produce a manual that documents the Library Editor. I also realize due to how much stuff there is available it might be very difficult to to document the whole thing. I've also noticed here that many users requesting profiles who have noted errors are often being quite helpful in provided graphic descriptions to help Jingles make the necessary corrects. Along those lines, I want to point out DJ-Andy, who is asking for help wiht a specific light AND is providing a direct link to the manual to help Jingles have easier access to resources.
I also encourage new users to mess around with profiles, or at least copies of profiles. I don't like having to rely on anyone else for help. I behave a lot like my own island at sea because I have to be as self-reliant as possible. I sometimes do tours, or I am on-site and I don't have time to SMS or IM someone or even call to get help.
We all benefit from working together here. As a community, we've done a lot to help outselves on supporting new lights for MyDMX.
James, Apologies accepted. The profile for the x-move plus is certainly (slightly) different to the ones already in the library. I now have my x-move plus's and have tested my amanded profile. I have also corrected the colour order and i can confirm this profile is working correctly. It does give a beam warning in Editor, stating that the beam is not open by default but (as far as i can tell) that IS the case. Channel 5, the Shutter/Strobe channel values 0-7 is blackout - values 8-15 are open. Let me know if the beam warning refers to something else? I will mail you the profile. Regards, AndyH
Ok thanks Andy. I'll have a look at it all when I return from my trip from ldi later tonight. Also I wanna say we took a bunch of ADJ fixtures and one chauvet fixture and had a shoot out. I'll post the picture when I get home. I wanna see who can tell me which one is brightest from the list of choices.
The tabels start on page 12 I really tried to create this fixture on my own, but some channels have more functions and I can't seem to find out how to to combine them. I hope you can help me. Thanx in advance!
I suggest to all MyDMX users to play with the Editor a bit.
Even so, a single channel with multiple functions can be a bit "intimidating" at first. Fortunately, when you get into the editor, you'll see it will allow for ranges for specific functions. It's not the most intuitive interface, but it's at the same time not terribly difficult to learn if you take your time and choose to not try to rush through it.
Of course, I can't stress this enough, do test it as soon as you can. For me, it's not so easy since I got stuff in the truck preventing me from having easy access to my lights, but I do what I can when I can.
