Re: SD3 Playbacks containing presets, selected fixtures question

George Webb ·
Thanks SDMAN. I just tried using Scenes instead of Presets, but Scenes seem to have a few different problems: Scenes sometimes want to cancel each other when turning them on. (Does anyone know why this is?) This makes it hard to turn on multiple scenes simultaneously. When a scene fades out, it fades its channels down to zero, rather than letting them stay at their "color scene". I thought "HTP" would allow the highest value to control the channel, but apparently it means a controller will...

greetings if you are comfortable working on the unit the try the following: with the units unplugged open it up.. you will see a large PCB with multiple E-proms. make sure they are properly seated then retest.. if successful then close the unit up and enjoy if not then you may need to send it in for repair: for RMA requests email RMA @ELATION LIGHTING.COM

Re: Show Designer 1 Bricked

Thanks for your reply, Ela! I just got off the phone with support and they said something similar about the PCB and sent me a RMA request form. I'm curious though, since that repair sounds like something that I would feel comfortable trying, do you know if opening the unit would void my warranty and make it so that I could no longer send it in for an RMA repair?

To whom it may concern, The display PCB's have changed in time but it's the same operating system. It could be either a bad display or a bad PCB inside. If it's within the 2 year warranty your best bet would be to send it in for warranty repair. You can always send an email to rma@elationlighting.com to set you up with a RMA to send it in. If it's not under warranty anymore and if you have another working unit with the same color display, you can always start by trying to swap out the...

Re: question about the vision scan 250!

elationpro ·
Hi Jingles, with the Vision Scan 250 out of focus you will still have a spot. However you need to remember that when you project gobos, a lot of times you will want them out of focus to give you different effects. But to answer your question you will still have a spot.

Re: spot and wash 250

Jingles8302 ·
do u have any control over the one that is moving on it's own? is there any type of light that tells u it is recieving a DMX signal? also i just checked and if u have the power spot and washes the spots are 15 channels which would mean the second one should start at A016. and if this is so is it panning and tilting on it own or just one or the other. can u tell me what u have and at what addresses?? i need to know if they are power spots and washes or what. and also if the washes are cmy or not.

Re: Color mixing

Hi Jonathan, I agree, I love the CMY color mixing feature. However this makes a lighting fixture a lot more expensive. Also, its dificult to fit all of these features in a light. So at Elation we are working on incorporating this feature into most of our lights. In the 250 range, if we incorporate CMY in a spot, it will be a bigger light, and be as much as a 575. So if you are already buying a big light, might as well bump up to a 575 fixture. The Elation Design Spot 575e, will be one of the...

Yo Tap I have 2 power spot 250 and have around 150 hours on them. What lense needs to be replaced after 2 years or does it go by operating hours ??

Re: powerspot 250 lenses

homeboy ·
The instruction manual. I was going to comment, but felt its better for an elation rep to let them know which is right rather then my opinion. It says that then lens should be replaced every two years, but really it only needs to be replaced when it gets cloudy or breaks IMO. The manual is referring to the outer condensing lens, by the way, the one you can touch (but shouldn't) on the front of the head. Overall, you shouldn't need to replace any lens' on your power spot until it breaks. -Homeboy

Re: Design Spot 250 colour wheel

Hi Toby, I think your question was more in lines of a color wheel with replaceable colors. This was suppose to happen to the Design Spot 250. However as it stands this feature will not be available with the current Design Spot 250. We have talks of a Design Spot 250LX which may be available by LDI in November. Best regards, John Lopez

You have to create a "switch" and name it follow spot. Then you need to select the "Ok and Edit" button. Look for a tab that says follow spot, and it should look like this. In this window you will see directions. Follow those directions.

Re: Basics of Compu Live 06

i did that, when i setup that switch it just moves to 4 different points in a cycle, the type of spot i was looking for is one that focuses on a certain point stays there until i move it. i was able to achieve this by setting a scene with with 2 fixtures pointed to the same spot and then moving them with the x/y preset button but i'm only able to control one fixture at a time. is there a way to have them both follow one mouse movement?

You need to keep working with this follow spot section of the software. I have done it and it works good. The key is use all the points allowable. Keep working with this and you will get it going.

Re: Compu Live Questions

elationpro ·
Hi Matchless, Yes, I know what your talking about.. and you have a few simple modifications to work with. 1. The Design Spot 250 has two pan degree settings. The degree is the amount of spin from left to right that the light can move. It should be set to 540 degrees on the light to match the 3D window. 2. Once this is done, then on the 3D window you may want to invert the pan and tilt to match the direction of the actual light. Here is a picture to help you find the pan and tilt inversion.

Hi TW, The Design Spot 250 does not have color correction. The easiest solution would be to have a 32K dichroic filter cut to the size of a Gobo 26.9 x 23mm viewing. Your best bet would be to contact Rosco or Apollo to get the best filter. Best regards,

you could just program a blackout scene in the sequence befroe you want it to be on. just put it on a short hold time or fade time. also im not too sure about the power spots but in some lights there is whats called a "vector mode" which if u have that value selected it will black out when a either pan or tilt motor is moving or even color/gobo wheels moving. it is a cool effect, but again i didn't see it in the values of the power spot 250. peace! welcome to the forums. jingles.

Re: Design Spot 250 Fade Issues

Sorry this is a little late... What you need to do is; if you are gonna be starting on the INIT scene you need to go in to edit on that scene, and set the shutter channel to open. To do this, just left click on the shutter channel and it will give you the option to set it. That way it does not go through the strobe section upon fading up or down. Another thing you should do is right click on your design spot section on the page box, and go to settings. When the box opens, click on "channels"...

Re: Design spot 250

That's what I was thinking you were doing. The Design spot 250's have 2 different pan rotation settings. 1 is 540 degrees 2 is 630 degrees I believe they are set to 630 degrees from us here at the factory. this 630 degree pan setting makes alot of things not match very well. So look for the degr setting on your fixtures and set them both to 540 degree's. See how that works for you. Best regards,

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. Make Sense? For the ADJ Accu Spot 250 II's, I'm not entirely sure how to do what your thinking but what I would suggest is to set some scenes and just recall your scenes.

Hi Jpal, That's what the guys were trying to explain to you. Your controller does not have pre generated movements.

Re: Magic 260 Issues

I thought I made that clear in my first post that the issue is with the Magic, not the lights themselves. It could be that the auto correct and the Magic don't get along, who knows. I just know that general channel personalites work fine, or I have to off-set the channel count by 2 so the lights don't pan randomly with the Power Spot personalites. The lights themslves have no issues.

Re: Stage Pak 1 how to set up?

on a side note. your spot 250 uses 6 DMX channel and the vue 3 uses 9. 9+6=15 DMX channels total. so you only have room for maybe one or two pars on the stage setter 8. might want to look into a bigger controller. like jthtigers DMX operator 192.
