My lighting machine doesn't have internet, so here are a couple pics I took. One shows the Master page with 362 addresses, the other the output window. Let me know if you need something else... thanks

I can't tell from the picture of the output window that you posted that all channels don't show. Could you do a screen grab place the pic on a thumb drive and then share that picture? Thanks. Sincerely,

Re: APC40 with COMPU 2006

jamminjproductions ·
To get the APC40 to work, you must map all of your buttons to their respective MIDI commands. To do this, open your console window. 1) Right-click the button you need to program. 2) Click the Console Setup tab 3) Click Auto Setup MIDI 4) Press the physical button on the APC40 This must be done for each button on the APC40

Re: CompuShow on a Macbook Pro with Parallels

Yes....Very sporatic. I have the latest version of parallels with windows 7 pro 64 bit. (Mac OS Lion) The led fixture that I was testing with was acting very erratically...flashing...changing colors. Using channels 1-3 (RGB) like I have done before on a regular PC. The dongle recognizes the software because it displays "PC" in the LED window....If you remember this is the same dongle that has the universe outputs reversed on the device....Still don't know what that's about, but I have...

I got it off the elationlighting website. I downloaded it to my wife's Macbook Pro which is newer than mine. Because it is unverified third party software, I had to use the control button to open the disc image. That window shows the Emulation icon, release notes icon and a thumbnail for applications. What would be my next step?

Re: Randomize Triggering Scenes in master page.

philld ·
Could you be a little more specific. The procedure for doing this isn't as simple as you described. I right clicked the scene button but did not see a method to trigger the scene from a midi value. The only midi option that I was able to see is link to console. I selected that, then chose button activation. A window popped up asking for the midi command. I sent the command from beyond and the midi command window closed. I then closed the settings menu and re-sent the same midi command but it...

Re: Changing DMX address

Jingles8302 ·
Hi NHNaz, yes you can change the addresses of the fixtures and all the scene and switches etc will update and follow. If you want, JUST to be safe, make a copy of your saved .shw file, or back it up somewhere. I always do this when I am implementing changes to my show. always have a back up. It's very simple, click on the fixture page you want to change the addresses, then go to page tab, then settings, then patch, click on the small moving head icon and then drag around to your desired new...

Re: Overwrite Cues

Jingles8302 ·
Yes, you can edit any scene at anytime. Do you know how to use the editor window? Or do you just make scenes solely from the fixture pages?

Re: Overwrite Cues

philld ·
I do use the editor window for creating scenes for the individual fixtures, but not for the scenes in the master page. In the past, I've had some issues where the master page scenes stop working after they've been edited, so I try and avoid it.

Re: Overwrite Cues

Jingles8302 ·
Nope you aren't doing it right, you may need to duplicate your scenes on the master page if you want to add a new element/new fixture. Turn on the scene in the master page, then go to the fixture page and turn on the scene and color, then go back to master page, click on the top of the page where it says master page, to make it the last page selected (This is important!) then go to button tab, create a new scene, then in the window it should say new MASTER scene, if it doesn't, you didn't...

Re: Overwrite Cues

philld ·
James, Originally I thought your instructions didn't work, but it turned out to be an issue having my master page and fixture page loaded in the same window on separate tabs. When I hold CRTL and right click and drag as you suggested, the mouse icon turns to a red circle with a line through it. I try and drag from one tab to another, but it doesn't work. Then I loaded the master page in a separate window from the fixtures and it worked as you described.

Re: Stage setter 8 issues

teggers ·
ADJ is the parent company to Elation. About 5 years ago, Elation took over the stage lighting division. You can get someone at either company through that number. The Stage Setter 8 ONLY sends 8 channels of DMX so you must have your dimmer set on DMX values that will max out at 8, otherwise, you will not be able to control them (turn them on). The stickers that were on your dimmer are indeed DMX values. The first dimmer is 1-4, that means the number in the window should read 1. The second,...

You are correct. I did not find one as well. I only found the keypad that pops up as a window and takes up the full screen. Windows > Panels > Keypad I have mentioned it to the Onyx Engineers. As much as we enjoy trying to help out on the Elation forum, maybe try http://forum.obsidiancontrol.com/ . The people on the Forum might have more insight or some sort of workarounds.

How to assign the "Virtual Keypad" to a function key

Hi all, In Onyx I can assign the "Onscreen Keyboard" to a function key on my laptop easily enough via Onyx Menu > Assignments Functions > Commands > General > Keyboard. But I can't find the equivalent for the Keypad (note: KeyPAD <-- the small one with FULL, @, THRU etc). I've searched all function key options a couple of times.

CompuPro and Accu Spot 250 II

Has anyone created an Accu Spot 250 II fixture profile with 9 DMX channels for Compu Pro? I created one that I modified from the 8 DMX channel Accu Spot 250 II from the Scanlibrary but I still need to modify some of the preprogrammed switches that don't work. The biggest problem is the colors don't display right in the 3D Easy View window and I don't know if that can be changed.
