Re: Plat 5r 17 chan profile help

serraava ·
If it is on a color wheel, there is no way to make it snap from white to magenta unless they are right next to each other in the color wheel. If you don't want to see the scroll, you need to write a blackout scene to allow it to change colors once it is blacked out. Just one of those things you have to think about and realize in the back of your mind if you want a cleaner look. Now if you are looking for it to scroll through, I don't think the PS5R has an indexing option for the color wheel,...

I think the fade time is applying to the color channel and that will slow down the snap. I am not familiar with lumidesk so if there is a way to not have the color wheel respond to the fade time then that is the nature of the color wheel going through the colors with a fade time on it. Sincerely,

CMB Attached to this post is a picture of the fade control for the gobo channel I got this from a friend of mine who uses lumidesk. the part circled in red is what turns the fade on or off for the gobo channel I believe this is also a option in the color wheel section. double check this and let us know.

If my 12 year old martin mini macs can snap to the next color....then I expect these Plat 5rs to. I see the disable fade option for the color wheel and will test tomorrow.

Re: Plat 5r 17 chan profile help

I was. I wanted it to snap from color 1 to color 5. with the fade time enabled on the color the color wheel would scroll to the second color for the length of the fade. Now it snaps to the second color half way through the movement. So before, many of my programs looked like just a scroll through all the colors, like a rainbow. Now they won't look like that and will just look like color changes.

So I think I am pretty sure on how to link buttons. But what I would like to know.......can I assign lets say this as an example.....I have multiple chase scenes; can I assign the speed of those chases to same fader or encoder creating sort of a master speed. Or several scenes with movements and assign their size to a fader or wheel creating a master size...et al........??????

Re: Platinum Spot Videos?

Hello Guys. I am a big Elation supporter. I own some of the Platinum Spot 5r Pro fixtures as well as the Platinum 5r Beam fixtures. I have a few videos of them in use on my Youtube page. One of my videos is actually a comparison of a Platinum Spot 5r pro vs. an Elation 575e. Other than the fact that the 5rs have small gobos and no animation wheel, they are the clear winner in other comparisons like brightness and the zoom feature just to name a few. It might help some of you make a decision...

Re: 5R Pro output is dim

dangerousdan ·
The alignment is correct. I cross checked with two other units. I booted the unit with the dim output and went through each setting in manual mode. Seems like the zoom and focus are both out of alignment on boot. When gobo wheel number one is used the output also dims significantly, almost like placing a stack of several diffusers in front the of head. I tried a full reset and inspected as well as I could for loose parts. My guess is that something is in bad alignment. -Daniel

Re: Lamp on using the DMX Operator Pro

oh no this is the right forum. lol I saw magic 260 first and assumed it was for that. It's forthe Op PRO. got it. but ya channel l13 has the commands for lamp on and off and even color split enable etc. But ya put channel 13 in the Color change to any position value and then move the fader for the color wheel and you will get fine control of that. Also for color and gobo to any position this is usefull if you want the gobo channel to slowly fade from one gobo to the next without snapping.

Re: SD2 show playback and moving lights

sdman ·
To record a scene with color only, you will have to clear the buffer first, then only select the color using a wheel or a preset. If you have the lights positioned, that will be part of the scene. Hold the black button to clear the buffer, select a color, then save the scene. You won't be able to see the color on the lights.

JWPardee (Guest) ·
In the Design Series, the error codes are reflecting of the DMX Channel. So, with that, your 5,6,7 are your Color Wheel, Gobo Wheel, and Gobo Rotation (in that order) Best bet is to open up the covers on the head and check the color wheel and gobo wheel are not catching on eachother or to something else causing them to stick.... if a gobo came out, for example, and caught the color wheel...not letting each of them to move...it will cause these errors... when these errors happen, it causes...

Re: RGBA Dimming

Former Member ·
hello unfortunately the color mix wheel only affects the RGB of the fixture. so the only way you can access the Amber function is by editing the scene you are using and adding the Amber function. this is the reason why you cannot control the amber function with the master dimmer.

Re: RGBA Dimming

Thanks for the reply. So if I create a scene not using the color wheel but rather use the individual channels for RGBA, would the master dimmer control Amber in that scenario?

Re: Profile for Venue Thinpar 64

russ ·
I think I know what he is asking. I would guess you would have to recreate the fixture in builder and assign the color wheel as a fader/dimmer type option rather than a picker. I'm not sure if it's possible , but I think that's what he is asking. So you can assign the color selection to a fader , slide it up to the color you want and keep it there rather than using a button to click through them all.

Design Spot 250 Pro Color wheel alignment

Hi all, Elation doesn't support the DS250 pro anymore or I'd ask them. I have a color wheel that is slightly out of alignment and it seems like the "calibrate values" option available in the fixture menu would be able to correct this. However, when I look in the manual for instructions it says only to contact Elation customer support. Anyone done this before? Able to pass along these instructions they mention? Or point me to where I'd be able to find them? Thanks, -Josh
