In This forum you can discuss tips, tricks, and troubleshooting for Elation's Next Generation Compu Live software, "Compu Show".

looking at the user manual, there is no dimmer function that can be created for a profile. The only way you can dim it would be using the values for rgb and reduce them equally. Best of luck on this
I have found a way around this...

Hold Shift and right click on each scene or switch you need to be able to dim. Then click "Show Faders: Dimmer". Then I assign one fader on my controller to controller the dimmer fader for all of the scenes/switches.

Kind of time-consuming when you have to do this with dozens of scenes, but once done, it works great

Just a suggestion for a possible future feature. Since it is possible to tell the software to dim a group of fixtures without a dimmer channel, would it be too difficult to go a step further and make this so we can do dimmer effects on individual channels to make chases and such?

For example, I use a bunch of LED par cans with no dimmer channel. When I program a chase, I have to program a chase for each color and color combination...very time-consuming and error-prone when you get in a hurry, plus my pages fill up pretty quickly with different scenes and switches.

If it was possible to create a virtual dimmer channel for each individual fixture, I could use my pre-programmed color palettes and create just a couple different dimmer effects, rather than having to recreate dozens of different color combinations for each effect i wish to use. This would also clear up and organize page layouts drastically!!
it is possible, but unlikely since the EFX generator does this all automatically
