Hi, having built qlc a few days ago I have been playing with the interface
to see how to do things. The intended use for it is to control dmx dimmers
for a fairly conventional amateur dramatic group production.
So far I have defined several dimmer fixtures and allocated dmx channel
numbers to them. In a virtual console I have created faders for each
dimmer channel and a sub master with these allocated to them. According to
the monitor, these work as expected and I can see the dmx values changing
1. I am expecting to use some showtec 4 channel dimmers in the real world,
but these are not pre defined in the fixtures. Is there a way to define a
new fixture so it appears in the add section of the device manager?
2. Maybe I am getting confused a new way to do things, but I am having
difficulty getting by head round how to create a sequence of events which
can be played back. I would have expected a scene editor where, for
example, in scene1 the lights required would fade from black up to the
preset levels. Moving to scene2, the lights would change as desired etc.
In function manager, I can add a new scene, but it only applies to one
fixture so if it is a single channel dimmer, I get only one entry in the
scene. If for example, channel 1 & 2 have "scene1", "scene2" & "scene3"
defined, but channel 3 has only "scene1" & "scene2", how do I tie these
together? Also in the scene
Maybe I am just missing something here.... but how do I actually play back
a programmed sequence? :-)
Sorry for all the questions, when I understand it, I should write an intro
describing what I did and where I went wrong.
