Hi all. I have just started using QLC+ at work.

It is running on a dell aio touchscreen using an entec usb to dmx adapter running 4 Martin Rush MH5 profiles. They are used for effects and follow spots.

As this is a strip club the the link is probably NSFW.

There are also 6 LED RGBWAUV par cans that I plan on controlling in the next week as well.

I created the MH5 profiles from scratch. Took about 5 hours of typing values...

I have done a bit of a clean up of the visual console buttons since this show was filmed to make it a bit easier to follow the girls around.. (Some of them move pretty fast..). The video for heat 2 will be ready soon..

Wow George, that video surely catches the eye ! :)
A miracle YouTube accepts contents like that

Is QLC+ providing the audio as well during the performances ?

Thanks for sharing

No audio yet but that is the ideal situation. The girls shows are currently run off USB through the mixer but ultimately I would like to set up showfiles in qlc+

The guys who edit the videos are pretty good. You will notice there is no actual rude bits in the video but it is borderline..

Sorry about the quality of the picture. Hopefully you can see that I have the buttons for head positioning set up to mirror the stage. This is the first time I have ever done this so this is what made sense to me at the time.

There's also Wonder Woman ! :D

Seriosuly, it would be nice to know which equipment you are using in that club and other techy details (how many universes, the DMX adapter used, etc...)

Yes, the superhero theme is quite popular...

Current setup is...

Dell all in one 20 inch touchscreen computer running windows 8.1

Micro DMX USB adapter (cheap eBay version)

4 Martin MH5 profile moving heads (16 channel mode)

6 Showtec RGBAWUV LED PAR cans (8 channel mode)

Single universe.

I haven't played around with multiple universes yet but I have an entec USB adapter spare so I might try that soon. I have a few other FTDI based adapters that I have tried as well and most of the cheap eBay ones work fine when using the mouse or keyboard to trigger the virtual console buttons but there is an annoying delay when using them with the touchscreen..will need to do some investigations to find out why that is happening..

Anyway, the video for the final will be done soon.. Can't tell you who wins as that would ruin the surprise...

Cheers,
"In Eberbach 3 Tage wach..." (3 days awake - well, a few hours of sleepin' in between are already tolerable...)

On Friday at beer garden, I was condemned to mix a Mallorca party. The DJ & "Almklausi" - no further comments.

4x Futurelight PHW-250 at the inner corners, QLC+ replaced GLP Scan Operator12pt.
More than 5 hours w/o unwanted interruptions, live editing functions w/o stress and mostly playing EFX relative to various positions...

On Sat. & Sunday I complemented Espi's Job with a pair of MH-660 spots, modular concept programming. 8-)
Could already complete the DIY footlights, too. Anyone who knows something brighter than these 5050 RGB LED, 60 pcs/m?

QLC+ v4.9.1 is already at a decent state, thanks to all developers, accessaries and especially to Massimo,
Let's get QLC+ v5 to take the cake!

Massimo,

I know you're generally looking for unique uses of QLC+ for this section and I think I probably have one for you. If you like it, I'll do a video and post it up. Here's what makes it unique. In addition to controlling the lighting and video in my bar which consists of the following:

• 6 Chauvet Intimidator Spot 150s
• 1 Elation Event Bar
• A handfull of other LED fixtures on the interior
• 4 Chauvet Colorband Pix IP (exteriors)
• Mad Mapper (for video)
• 7 HD TVs
• 3 projectors (2 for a video mapped bar top and 1 mapped to a logo)

and here's the (I believe) unique part...

1 Behringer X-Air 18 Digital Mixer.

I recently implemented the Scripts in QLC+ in conjunction with a small bash script and a little program that sends OSC to the X-Air so that I can control all of the inputs (for DJs) directly through QLC+. It's really quite awesome and something that I've wanted for quite some time. I've not had an opportunity to use the scripts function of QLC+ before this and I have to say, it's really a very excellent feature. One little hack that I employed to reflect the status of the currently selected input, is that I used a dummy fixture with dummy scenes in solo frames (otherwise the buttons don't stay active when clicked).

Hope you like it! I definitely do!
