Connect console to Wysiwyg Perform

Post by gooze » Tue Feb 10, 2015 12:02 pm

I am using Windows 8.1 with Wysiwyg perform. I installed Palette software after Wyg, but I cannot connect to either a Horizon device, a Strand shownet network or a Strand Palette console. The only thing that works is artnet.
Installing the (very old) shownet drivers that I downloaded from the Strand website doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

Bump!

In the specifications to the Palette VL console it is written:
2.) The console software shall also support communication with other computer programs running on other computer systems including WYSIWYG and PowerPoint presentation software.
I would really like to see this function restored as it was lost several software updates ago. It used to work as an Horizon console including Autofocus, which is very, very helpful.

I just discovered that Shownet does work, but only on the same computer (ip 127.0.0.0). This is quite limited functionality...

Would it be possible for you to send me your show file and WYG file, so I can test it on my desk and see if I see the same problem?


Thanks.
