RGB Color Mixing

skierskier Registered User
Would it be possible to include the ability to switch from CMY to RGB when mixing fixture colours with the encoders?

I know it has been mentioned about the whole Hog3 colour model, but i would like the encoder labels to say RGB and the values work the opposite way around. Would that really effect the desk workings that much? I would even settle for the encoders just to labelled!

I also know some prefer it this way but 90% of the time I use LED fixtures and to be able to use the Intensity parameter I have to use CMY which I do just find slightly confusing. Also for those who don't like the sound of this couldn't it be switchable in the preference?

I have even tried editing the fixtures by reversing the channel behavior with no luck. I would so love for this to be able to work this way!

    Have you looked under intensity?
    Most LED fixtures have RGB available in the intensity list.

    You are right they are there, but if you use the master intensity encoder it knocks out the colours you set with the iRed iGreen iBlue.

    As it is supposed to.....Intensity is part of the HSI and/or CMY color spaces.
    (Hence "HSI" - Hue-Saturation-Intensity).

    iR, iG, iB are in their "own" color space.

    Hope this helps. :)

    Exactly this is what the point of the post is, RGB under colour.

    Traditionally in lighting color is always subtractinve (CMY + HSI).
    An easy way to think about CMY is exaclty what they do. Cyan is "minus Red", Magenta is "minus Green", and Yellow is "minus Blue".

    Since RGB is is an addititve model, and in the case of LEDs this controls 3 separate intensities, this is why they are there.
    This would get messier still when adding RGBW, RGBA, & RGBAW fixtures.

    For example:
    If RGB were under color, when you pulled your Master or Grand Master down the units would not fade.

    Hope this helps. :)

    I agree with Skier.
    RGB should be an option under color. Grand MA can do it with HSI and CMY as well.

    Surely its a simple fix.
