Imove 200sr working but no effects function

Post by bullfrog » Fri Sep 12, 2014 10:04 am

Hi

I've created a fixture using the fixture library creator for the imove 200sr moving light. Most things are working as expected, pan and tilt for instance. 16bit values. However if I select the fixture press the effect button and then select one of the built in moving light effects the light doesn't move. Any suggestions as to what could be wrong is appreciated. I've compared my created fixture with some of the provided moving light fixtures in your library to see if I've to do something extra for pan/tilt however I see no disparity. Unfortunately I don't have any of the lights that you have in your built in fixture library so it could be that I'm not doing the required action to get a moving light fixture effect running in the first place.

On a separate note there are other functions usually in a dmx fixture such as lamp off, reset fixture, etc etc which don't really fit into the 4 attribute groups of dimmer, position, colour or beamshape which of those 4 is the recommended type to use.

Thanks

Please send the created fixture for tech support to test with.

On the other note, some people put the control parameters in Intensity, some put them in Beamshape.

Hi

Thanks

Having trouble attaching the file and the manual pdf with this site - keeps saying quota exceeded.

So sending to your email address which you've posted in another topic.

Thanks

Matthew Peters has got back to me already with an updated fixture profile.

Good quick response from Strand Tech Support, which is always a good sign

Thanks
