I provide lighting for a band. I am using a DMX Operator Pro to manage my fixtures and dimmers. Right now we have 4 Intimidator 2.0 fixtures, 2 Chauvet DMX Meage Strobes, 2 par 64's, 8 par 56's, and 8 par 46's.
I am constantly trying to add to the show. I know that there is 8 channels for fixtures and 8 channels for dimmers. The dimmers I use can be set to 1, 2, or 4 channels. So, I can multiply the amount of cans easily.
The fixture side is set up in 16 channel blocks. The Intimidator 2.0 only uses 5 channels per scanner. That leaves 11 DMX channels for fixture block.
My question is, can you use those left over channels. Can I assign the first fixture to 1, the second to 6, and have a third 11? Or would it work to assign the first to 1 and a second to 8? Seems like it should work either way.
If my explanation of the scenario is insufficient, you can email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance for your help!
