Feature Request: Intensity values in percent

Post by grizze » Mon Nov 09, 2015 10:21 am

I wanted to rebuild some theatre shows in QLC+ for touring. But i saw that the intensitys in the channels only shows the DMX Values. Is ist possibly to switch this in Percent. In the Theatre work it is usefull to set the conventional lights in percent.
If its not in QLC+ yet, can it build in in the next versions.

Look in the Widget Properties. You can set all widgits to use percent.
And the DMX Monitor can also display percent.

Ah! sorry, missunderstood.
I can not see a way of doing it either, and agree, that would be good.

I just want to second that feature request.

We've tested pc_dimmer in our last theater production (because Google showed it in a higher rank than QLC+) including 12 dimmers,
three RGBs and one servo motor. What we've observed during the scene programming was, that talking to non-technicians is much easier,
when using percentage instead of byte-fractions. As I'd like to use QLC+ for the next production, I'm testing it at the moment and this is
the first drawback so far.

In pc_dimmer they solved the displaying problem by having two fields next to each other, which are separated with a "%" sign.
The left field (before the "%") is the value in percent and the right value the actual DMX value. When either is changed, the other adapts.

Besides that, all the non-SW DMX controllers, which I had in front of me (not too many, I admit) typically had fader labels in percentage or
tenth of percentage. So that's what people are used to.
