I am totally inexperiened setting up lights. We have been using the Stage Setter 8 controller for the last year for, really, nothing more than a dimmer. Now we are trying to upgrade the lighting and need some help setting it up properly. Here is what we are wanting to do...
1. Run 8 Par 56 cans as FOH lights, each on their own channel (We have two DP-415 Dimmers).
2. Run 4 Chauvet Color Wash Junior lights grouped together) as a back wash on the wall behind the stage.
3. Run an additional 4 Chauvet Color Wash Junior lights (grouped together) as back lights on the stage.
We are completely lost as to how to set this up with the DMX 512 protocal... how do we assign the right channel on the Stage Setter 8 to the right DMX channel on the lighting fixture? How would we group the PAR lights to channels 1-8 on the controller and the Color Washes to 9-12 & 10-14 respectively? Thanks for your help with a totally noob question!
