Chamsys Vis

Hey Guys,

I'm doing lighting for a school production and we have 2x betapack 3's and 2 alphapacks so 17 channels (1 alphapack has a dead channel). this is wired to 24 sockets on the lighting bar. On chamsys visualiser is there any way of duplicating lights so two lights occupy one dimmer channel as we will be extending the dimmer channels on the bars.

 

Cheers,

Mat

I would do this by patching two dimmer channels in MQ, but give them the same DMX address, so that they act as one but two are inserted into the vis. There might be a proper way of doing this, but I've found this work-around works well!

 

Although I think the 'clone' function in MQ patch is used for something like this....I'm sure someone will elaborate! :)

if I try and change the DMX address of a dimmer to one that is already in use it assigns the old one a new address out of range.

Patch the number of lanterns that you will be using, pair them by assigning them the same Head number, not DMX address. Then, assign a DMX address to each unique head number.

 

Fixture | Head No | DMX Address
Par64-1 | 1       | 1
Par64-2 | 1       | u (unpatched, type U then enter to unpatch it)
Par64-3 | 2       | 2
