Moving Head Position

Post by martinty » Tue Oct 27, 2009 12:27 am

Is there another way to set the pan and tilt on a moving head other than the set angles?

I assume you dont have a console with the encoders??
You can put Pan and Tilt commands into the command line. CH, Position, Pan (s2) Tilt (s3) and then a degree value after that.

Does this help???

Cheers,
Robert

I think that is what he already does.
Maybe try this:
Press and hold S2 for Pan and use the intensity wheel or your mouse wheel. Same for S3 tilt (and all other attributes). If you press both S2 and S3 at the same time you can use the mouse to control your moving lights.


Oh, and please update your forums profile so we can see which console and software version you are using...

...if you hold S2 and S3 at the same time, move your mouse around and see what happens.

(easier if you have a trackball)
