Hi! Since Emulation has been discontinued for some time now, we are asking users to switch over to the developer version of the software as they have continued support and development of their programs, the Emulation software is called CueLux and the E-builder is simply called Builder, here is a link to their product page where you can download the latest CueLux release as well as the latest Builder software. https://www.visualproductions....ntertainment/cuelux/ If you switch Emulation over...

Re: Midi Master

mikelights ·
Yes, any usb midi controller can be assigned to most buttons in the software to act as a dimmer or a trigger. If you right click on a fader in the program you will see a link to midi controller option which will then ask you to select a button on your midi console to assign it. The software even has some of the more popular midi controllers set up for you already in the show console window icon, all you have to do is assign the button.

Re: gel color in 3d visulizer

homeboy ·
Thanks! and No Problem. I made a design for a theater I help with, but as it got closer to the show the use of Compu Pro was tossed and I never got rid of the program. Its not very detailed and no lights are actually ploted except the work lights, but it helped who it needed to so I guess its a sucsess after all! -Homeboy

Re: need to know???

mikelights ·
Are you actually programming the show with the visualizer, or are you just presenting what it would look like? If you are programming the show, it will be nearly impossible to get the proper representation because of how the channels on this fixture are organized. If you just want a 3d representation (and don't need the channels to match up), then use the rgb profile in the generic folder.

i am actually programming the show here in wausau to be sent to l.a. and i need the channels to match up so it wil play on the actual units in l.a. and would like if possible to be able to see what actual color is being displayed. let me know! peace! jingles!! thanks again!

Hi Jingles. When you modify a fixture in the scan library, you can mess with the unit, if you want it to project like a wash or simply be a color changing object. Its up to you how you are using it at the show.

Hi DJ, Those six lights are a nice set up. Your show will be looking good. What you need to learn is a few things to get going. 1. make sure you assing the right light to your fixture buttons. I'm not sure if the entour is in the memory of the magic so you may need to download the profile from the website and load it into your board using your U-link cable. If you don't have the u-link cable then you should get it. Once the fixtures are assigned the next step is to learn how to create 1...

Hi D-Rey, You have a good start, but your way off. What you want to do is start all over. In begginer mode, you can't delete or start over, so you will need to switch to expert mode. In expert mode, you need to create a new show. You will be prompted to save information. Don't save anything. Also you don't want to have any demo stuff.

Re: Magic 260

surgeprotech ·
Domi, 1. 1.02 is currently the latest version. 2. When using a preset, the fixture profile must match the fixture. What fixture are you controlling? 3. You'll need to initialize the channel names. When opening the Magic 260 uploader program, close the Ulink Ver 1.08 window. Go to show forms (located on the top left corner) and select EditChName. Select Init and save. The Channel names will now appear when creating a profile. Please call me if you continue to have any problems Sergio C.

Re: Design Spot 250 Fade Issues

Yes, I agree with what your saying. The thing about this Compu live software is, it does not have a master dimmer like other major consoles. Using a MIDI console or a simple DMX console, like the Elation SD6C, you can use these other consoles external faders, that you can assing to the dimmers of your lights, then you will have dimming control of you softare as you would with the consoles your used to. However this software works a bit differenty than other consoles, so it does have a few...

Hi Level, I'm not sure what you mean by RGB color wheels? As color wheel and RGB color mixing are two different color options. For the Color wheel you have a group of color buttons. For RGB color mixing you have a color pick pallet for color picking. where you can click on the exact color you want. If this is what your refering to then you must be pressing the button rearangement icons at the top of the page. You must be in compression mode for the color pick pallet to show. Here is a small ...

Unfortunatly we kind fix it if we can't find the problem. Your case would be the first case with this issue. Before you generate a page, can you save the show, which saves your entire set up, and e-mail it to info@elationlighting.com attn: John Lopez. I'll have to take a look at your work.

Welcome to the forums! For the dimmer packs, whatever address you set it to (129 for your example) tells you all the address for each light. light one will be 129 and light 2 will be 130, 4 - 131, 5 - 132. so just use the faders (channels 129 - 132) to turn on the par cans.
