Artnet in Request: From Selection

jxgriffijxgriffi Registered User, DL Beta, Hog Beta
Would be VERY helpful (especially in a Road House like ours) when an LD comes in and only wants the rig, but not the architectural items…to be able to select fixtures and press "ARTNET IN."

That way we don't have to go through the DMX window, cell by cell, line by line and select. Would also make changeovers between opening acts and headliners much simpler.

Run opener on house Roadhog…
Select Rig…"Artnet in from selection" button…done.

    Nice idea. Maybe this could extend further to work like Park currently does based on Touched parameters. So maybe you just want to set fixtures intensities to ArtNet In, just select them, Intensity Touch > ArtNet In.

    In your case select fixtues, Touch > ArtNet In

    Could be really flexible. What do you think?

    That would be great! Some LD's don't want the Indigo Highlights on the Solaspots…no problem. Just don't set that parameter.

    Would be extremely flexible for what we can give them (or not give them when they're being stubborn).

    And the ability for making htp merge on the artnet in. So that you still can take over several parameters.

    This can be done already by making a key stroke macro. Using the dmx window, selecting the channels of the fixture/fixtures and setting to artnet in. Simply record the keystroke macro and edit the times so it all happens nice and fast, then sit back and relax.
    I like coins idea tho. It would make the proccess easy

    Disagree, strobie. It's currently not nice and easy doing the macro. And I do it all the time :(
    Everything in the DMX window is touchscreen based touches and therefore less than robust.
    Selecting universe is a pull down. Not fun making a macro out of that.
    Plus, selecting every cell of a universe is flaky. Clicking and dragging on a touchscreen doesn't record into the macro. So you have to make sure the slider is all the way up in the window, select (touch) the first parameter then pig +arrow down ALL the way to 512. THEN change the universe and do all of this for each universe/dp.
    And if you edit the timing to be to fast, it won't execute at all. So to change 8 universes from Hog net in to Artnet in, the macro is usually 10 seconds to run each way. This is an eternity when swapping control from one desk type to another.
    I would really like to see some type of keystroke based commands or shortcut select all options in the DMX window.

    Colin, if we're going to go that far with the request, why not just have 'Art-Net In' a value that we can record in a cue? Then I can switch between HogNet and Art-Net for any given parameter within a running cue. If you want to leave it Art-Net In, then just Park it.
    This could work in a similar way to how we use Plots when we pixelmap fixtures.
