Artnet Universes

Post by andrei » Fri Apr 30, 2010 11:53 pm

I am hoping that someone might be able to help me with a quick question regarding the Palette and the configuration of artnet universes.

I am wanting to take my 4th DMX universe of the console and make it output to artnet universe 0.0. I have successfully added in a new patch route which configures start as 4.1 and end as 4.512 and uses artnet as the protocol, however, can anyone explain to me how the artnet universes that I want to allocated this output to is defined?

I am assuming that it has something to do with the Net Slot column, however, the manual is very thin in this area. Is it the case that a net slot value of 1.1 (1) actually represents artnet subnet = 0 and universe = 0?

Thanks in advance for anyone who can offer some insight.

Thanks John for the link. Unfortunately it is not making things clearer for me about how to define specific artnet universes. If I wanted to output universe 4 (4.1 to 4.512) to artnet universe 0,0 what should my values be in the net slow field be?

I cannot be sure (someone else might have to clarify), but I can recall doing artnet stuff with 1.1 as the first universe in that world. As you say, patching outputs 4.1 thru 4.512 to Netslot 1.1 "should" be correct.
