Re: Is there a 250 spot that will mix color like this?

bdunard ·
Is the "rainbow effect" that is listed on the elation site for the design wash 250 the same smooth color changing that I see in the video? Or is the color change in the video a carefully programmed chase? The design 300 looks great! However I don't think I can pull the trigger on a fixture that is that much more. It's a bit out of my range at this point as I see it lists for $2k more than the Design Spot 250. At the end of the day I would like to have more beams of light I think than just a...

oh ya sorry I guess I Musca forgot that part in the video. Sorry. Yes you simply hold down the shift key and it will move all the relative faders for the same fixture types. For e ample if u have 4 ds250's and 2 power spot 250's and u click on a ds 250 fader and hold shift it will move all the ds 250 faders for that channel. Sincerely,

Re: What are some other uses for moving heads at weddings?

bdunard ·
I definitely know how important lighting is to a wedding...however it's hard to sell a mom on some lights on a band. However, I have found it easier to sell the mood of a room, their name on a gobo, a spotlight on the first dance, uplighting the backdrop or rear wall the same color as the bridesmaid dresses...this is the stuff that makes sense to the purchasers. However, I want the lights for the show! On a side note...I went to demo a design wash 250, and design spot 250 today. If found out...

Re: ADJ X-Move LED moving head...will there be an elation version soon?

bdunard ·
I've actually never heard of a single 20W LED that does RGB mixing. I am more curious as to what it really is. That being said if there are such things as 20W LEDS then it would just seem that they would eventually replace conventional bulbs. This would be different than the Impression. Basically take a design spot and replace the bulb with a bright led - less power and no fans! I appreciate you letting me know as I just bought 4 design spot 250's and was going to be mad at myself for not...

haha.. You made a great choice my freind. No LED moving heads will compare to Design Spot 250.. maybe in 2013.. maybe. Anyways.. its 20 1watt LED's really close together on one circuit board.. I have not seen it yet, but I confirmed it was 20 1watt LED's on a square grid.. Something like that. Best regards,

Re: Design Spot 575 VS. Power Spot 575

Jingles8302 ·
Hello, ybravo. i really like he design spot 575 cause you have so many features on it. for instance 2 rotating gobo wheels is almost unheard of on a 575 in that price range, CMY, animation wheel. i would say from a programming standpoint you could do more with a design spot 575 then a power spot 575. and i have not heard of the power spots coming in white. i'll look in to this for you. sincerely,

so this trial version wouldn't work for me. it would just give me an idea of how it works? Then If I liked it I shoulg go buy a more expensive version, such as the elation compu 1024EC ($600 doller model). And this package includes the dongle that will work for me? I am using 2 elation 250 wash lights and several smaller led lights. I will be purchasing other things in the near future however... fog machines, and moving bogos (elation 250 spot).

Re: Design Spot 575 VS. Power Spot 575

Power Spot 575 vs Design Spot 575. It really depends on what features you need. CMY, frost, zoom, animation wheel, iris, and dual rotating gobo wheels can be very useful and powerful tools. The question is do you need them? That is something you have to weigh out for yourself. Power Spots also don't come in a white form, only the DS line does. I can say from my stand point, I use iris a lot do to the nature of shows I do. So every mover I own has to have one. I can also say that the PS 575IE...

Serra.. I have to say you know your stuff! So i'll just say the same thing Serra said with a different twist. IRIS is an incredible feature with Iris pulse and being able to pinpoint objects. So the Power Spot 575IE gives you that option. -Now- The Power Spot 575ie literally weighs 42 lbs. This fixture is so light to hang you want to hug it. This is because it has a multi voltage electronic transformer, so you can plug it in 220V or 110V and it auto senses the voltage. If you ever run 220V...

I just tested a Magic-260 with a Design Spot-250 and was able to program a fade out. To program a fade out, set your dimmer to zero (0), add your desired fade time and save it to a desired page/button location.

Jay- the problem may be with your Design Spot-250 profile. I don't recall it ever having a problem but from what you’re describing, it sounds like it was written incorrectly. Like John was describing, there is an option to set how you want your channels to react to fade time but it isn't in the Magic-260 controller. It's in the PC profile creator program. You can select between "Snap After Fade", "Snap Before Fade" or "Fade" for each channel. From what you're describing, the Dimmer channel,...

I'm not exactly sure but remember the lights are plugged into the power and dmx is going through each one and dmx goes into the dongle which is hooked up to the computer running the software and there is also communication between dongle and software. Whew kinda long huh? Haha! And the lights are the new ADJ accu spot pro's. And I love em. Try doing what the software wants you to do over the net first.

Do you have the mouse assigned to control the pan and tilt values I don't know that I have to assign values to the mouse according to the follow spot rack instruction If so, what is the easy way to do it? Any ways, after reading the instruction again,there is a phrase: Create a ‘Scene’ that controls the master moving light with the mouse (Live rack). I think this is what you mean by assigning values to the mouse? Thanks.

The important channels for moving heads that need the FADE option checked are pan tilt dimming focus Iris and zoom.

Re: Design Spot 250 For SPOT LIGHT

Getting two separate lights to move to the same spot with the same commands from different locations isn't going to work unfortunately. You might want to try start them at center stage and move from there. That may work better, but since the angle for each light is different, every degree on light moves is going to be larger for the other do to less on an angle. On the Hog, I would simply make a ton of position palettes but Compu doesn't have this feature, yet.

Re: Newbie Question!

For front light at smaller venues, I would lean more towards LEDs vs Par 64s. Par 64s can be lamped 500w, 600w, or 1000w. That is a lot of juice, and at smaller venues, power is often an issue. Check out the Opti 30 RGBs or the new Opti 30 Tri. If that is out of your price range, would look to the P64LED Pro like jingles said. For moving heads, again, DS250s are great fixtures. The might be out of your range however, so a Power Spot 250 would be a cheaper, yet still great quality alternate.

I can answer the first part of your question. MyDMX is indeed a DMX controller. MyDMX is software based as oppose to hardware based controller. Now as for how to copy them into a Design Spot 250, I am not sure. Some one from service will have to answer that. For creating scenes however, it will depend on how they are addressed. If both fixtures are using the same address, you simply have one fixture mirror the other and store the same look in them. If they are addressed differently, then you...

Re: Platinum Spot

Dear All. No... The Platinum Spot does not use Plasma. The new lamp in this fixture is called the MSD Platinum 5R by Philips and is a 160-180w lamp with output comparable to a 575w discharge lamp fixture. It has double the efficacy of the plasma source and the fixture is half the size also. We had a very successful launch of this product at LDI and more info will come out very soon.

Very nice. I also heard that there was a "design spot led" with a 90 watt source at LDI! I hope to see info on this soon. Im not sold on leds for moving lights, but this sounds promising. Still disappointed thats its a not a plasma lamp, but the double the efficiency sounds good.

When you measure the TOTAL lumen output of the Platinum Spot 5R accross the entire light field then you start to see the advantage. This is why we say you have to see it to believe it!
