Separating RGB

Post by pracc » Sun Sep 12, 2010 11:54 pm

Is it possible to have 3 look faders as Red, Green and Blue using the generic RGB from the fixture library?
which are able to mix together?
or is there a work around?

Separating RGB

Post by gooze » Mon Sep 13, 2010 2:34 am

Faders are the worst way to mix colour, because they are not continuous controllers. That way you'd have to leave the faders up at the same levels and you can only control one set of rgb or cmy lights with one set of faders.
It makes more sense to make yourself familiar with one of the four possibilities to select colour.
1. Use the rotary's 2-4
2. Use the S2-S4 keys together with the intensity wheel
3. Use the colourpicker
4. Use Textmatch, choose your gel manufacturer and type your gelcolour Lee 202 eg.

@Gooze - Agreed.
Great for my guys and gals and longer term shows
I've been trying to convince visiting operators that these are better ways for over 12 months now, But they arn't interested in changing their workflow for a one day gig.


@Matt - Sorry - here's the first one

no argument that there are better ways to mix/select colour.

although that doesnt answer my question, I assume that is a no then.

yeah i'm still hoping this is coming soon. it may not be the best way to do it, but there sure are a hell of alot of people that want it.
If you want to paint with light, you're going to need a Palette
