hi I have an Elation Show Designer 2 and I read in the manual about loading fixture profiles from elationlighting.com but I don't see any of the fixtures I have in my show on their list. I have a CF drive and ready to download but need to know where to go to download my specific files. I currently have Chauvet DJ Slim Par 56s, Chauvet Slim Par 64 RGBA, Chauvet DJ Intimidator Spot 260, Blizzard LB Hex RGBAW+UV LED Wash Light, Chauvet DJ 6spot RGBW, and ADJ Z120 RGBW Led Par. if anybody can tell me where to go for even some of these fixture profiles Id be thankful. I then can add them to my Elation Show Designer 2 console. thanks

greetings please email service at elation lighting dot com. and request the profiles for your units.. please mention its for an SD2 also you will need to enclose a pdf copy of the DMX traits and specify which mode you require.
I understood everything until you mentioned pdf copy of the dmx traits. And which mode they require. When you say mode are you talking about if a light is going to be in 3 channel mode or 7 channel mode for example? Or am I mixed up on that? Thanks dmx traits is that like a copy of what all the channels do in a certain mode?
hi Kent you are correct just specify what channel mode you desire. please note if you request them all it will take longer . also keep in mind the sd2 can only handle 32 channels. if you desire a mode exceeding this you will have to choose a mode under 32 channels.
ok also i bought my SD2 used and it seemed to be ok but i erased the memory hoping to put it back to factory settings and not have a bunch of scenes i didnt program. Hopefully doing this didnt effect software did it? Or should i update the software version again? thanks also i think i will not go with all the excessive channel modes especially since im kind of new at learning them. i can save that for another time
