No DMX out with a custom fixture

Post by willmodelisme » Mon Oct 23, 2017 2:15 pm

Issue in Win10, 4.11.0 and and latest TEST version

Hello everyone.
I have just installed 4.11.0 and get issue with on of my custom fixture, the Varytec PAD7 Seventy RBGWA.
I have no DMX out with RGBMatrix.

It could be an issue with my fixture because it works well with other fixture.
My fixture passed the validation process and I was running previously the 4.10.4 with no issue.

I have checked with the latest TEST version and the problem remain.

Can anyone take a little time to try to check and help me to fix this issue ?

I joint a workspace with a scene and a simple RGBMatrix with 4 of my fixtures.

Found a problem in your fixture definition:
All intensity channels were set to 'fine' LSB
that means you don't get output (oh well maybe a MSB 1-value if rounding is applied to a LSB 255 value)

Changed the White & Amber channels to intensity also

Checked your project and I suspect that you stopped playing around since you didn't see some output...
I have added 2 buttons in your virtual desk to get this going in 'live' mode.

I guess this combination will actually work.

Hi GGGss.
Many many thanks for your help.
I really appreciated.

Yes it works !!!

I still don't know why that fixture stopped to work on the 4.11 and above but I don't want to know to be honest.
I am currently reprogramming my show with the updated fixture you provided.

Thanks again for your support.
