The cards formated to FAT only work with Showdesigner 2 and 3. DMX operator Pro, DMX programmer and DR-512 use propriotary cards. You should be able to print this out and send it to your dealer so he can order you the correct card from us. Best regards, John Lopez

Re: Opto Branch

skote ·
I realize this is an old thread, but in talking with a pro lighting guy from Nashville last night, I've come to believe that both "tap" and "Elation_Pro" are incorrect about the Opto-Branch 4. 1. You CAN use the DMX Thru port to continue on to other DMX receivers, but standard DMX rules apply (no more than 32 devices on the line, terminate the last fixture on the link, etc). The splitter is just seen as a receiver on the line; nothing more or less. However, if something takes this line down,...

Thanks James, I think I get it. I'm not sure where I got the 32 from ... looking at the online manual for that I can clearly see it's 16 ... which is plenty. So to build on your explanation, if I turn on fixture button 1 and 2, then fader 1 is acting as a fader for channel 1 and 17 at the same time, correct? Is it safe to assume that fader one is actually designed to continually send out data on channels 1, 17, 33, 49, 65, 81, 97, 113, 129, 145, 161 and 177 and then the scanner buttons just...

Hi Amda, Welcome to the forums! 1st of I have to mention that in most cases the professional lighting shows are usally always pulled of with lighting guy. I have yet to see a great light show that does not have a light guy behind a light desk. very rare. That being said the internal mic is doing a great job. Using internal mic will never do what you want same with feeding a line in. Now going MIDI may be your ticket. However we are not MIDI pro's here and if you don't understand MIDI, you...

I can help with a few recommendations. What is the room size? and the height at which these fixtures will be mounted? For a beginner moving head i would go with 2 design spots 250. Led par cans Check out some of our LED par cans and if the price is too high check out American DJ's P64LED Pro. Oh and what is your budget? Sincerely,

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.

Hi CJ, Here's what I recommend. Set the second panel exactly as the first panel. Address and all. They should do the exact same thing when you use the DMX operator pro. This is your starting point. When and if they do the same thing or not, then it sounds like anything would be an issue with your light. You should contact the manufacturer of the light which is Chuavet as this forum is only to support the Elation products. Once you get the Chauvet lights figured out and you have questions on...

Hey Len, The latest version of the DS250 (v1.3) is exactly the same as the DS250 Pro. Older versions have some differences which are major as far as channel 16 (Fixture commands channel) goes. There are also some minor differences in other channels.

Re: DS250 v. DS250 Pro

Have you tried resetting the fixture via the console and/or on the fixture itself? Every once-in-a-while a fixture will do that on me and a reset fixes it. Also, which console are you using? It might be an issue in the profile if it is doing it across more then one fixture. Are you using an old DS250 profile by chance? The old DS250 was at 0% intensity when channel 12 is at DMX value 15 vs 0 for version 1.3 and the DS250 Pro.

Re: Design Wash Led Question

serraava ·
Well, the Designs will blow away the Opti Tri. The LED 60 has 180w of LED behind it and the LED Pro has 324w of LED behind it. The Opti Tri has 54w for comparison. Size wise, the DWLED 60 only has a 15 degree beam vs the 25 degree beam of the DWLED Pro and the Opti Tri. Keep that in mind, because you will need more DWLED 60s to wash a stage then the other two fixtures. Also, the Opti Tri is using tri-color LEDs, so no color shadows. Not sure if this is an issue or not for your application,...

Good grief, nobody wants to take the time to figure out anything on these forums... Short answer the DS250 is much larger than the Accu Spot series lights, with the exception of the Accu Spot Pro. The case for the Accu Spot 250, and similiar heads is to small for the DS250. If there is a case for the Accu Spot Pro, it will probably fit.

Re: Looking for Par64 Replacements, sort of

Well, if they hold their own against regular 500-watt Par64's, then both are viable options. In know a "which one is better" is a subjective and relative thing. I guess the bigger question is "what is the typical beam angle of a Par64" compared to the same beam from the ADJ 64 LED Pro. So, I have some research to do. It does appear that, without doing any research, the Opti RGB would be the better choice due to the spread. With 25-degree angle, I can cover the entire stage with 4 lights from...

You are looking for Tri-LED fixtures. They join together R, G, and B LEDs in a cluster behind one lens. Looking at the lenses, it looks like one, solid color. With regards to screens, they use separate LEDs as well. They are just smaller and really close together. Get too close to them and they become pixalated or look at them close up while they are off. With regrads to why companies use a small number of larger LEDs vs large number of smaller LEDs, the fixtures would simply be too large...

Re: How do I control the Pro Bar using MIDI?

Are you talking about the MEGA Bar Pro? I've got two of those and I really like them as well. There are no midi inputs on the Mega Bar Pro. I did a file search of the manual for the word "midi" and got no results. You can't control the MEGA Bar Pro directly with midi. Some controllers can be controlled by midi. And any controller that can be controlled by midi can controll your MEGA Bar Pro. So you can indirectly (through a controller) control your MEGA Bar Pro with midi, but not otherwise.
