  • EJ, The current method we have for doing this is to press and hold the desired Choose buttons and then use any of the main playback controls. This will send a Go, Release, Next, Back, etc command to every master that has its Choose button held do…
  • Dave, I've gotten a few "official" responses to the last email you sent me regarding features, improvements, bugs, etc and I'll email you them when I get a chance (within the next couple days). I'm looking forward to the photos and I can pass …
  • Dave, it looks like we've got a workaround for the issues you were seeing with PT v1.6. See below and let me know if this gets you up and running: Just copy $PTOOLSET_INSTALL$/lib/Barco_eWarp_win.exe to $PTOOLSET_INSTALL$ This is all located i…
  • Just to close out this thread, it ended up being a bad stick or RAM. After replacing the RAM the install completed successfully. Thanks Goldie.
  • Kyle, There isn't any direct way to do this via the menu before the homing sequence begins however the DML1200 will not home if it detects that the Housing Switch is open. If you slightly loosen the head bezels, via the captive flat head screws, …
  • Here is a method which might work for you. Lets say I have a few different positions as well as a few different colors, all are active on stage via cuelist playback. In Position 1 I have fixtures that alternate Magenta and Yellow. I also have fixtur…

  • John something that I'd do for dimmer checking is do a 1-to-1 patch on an entire, spare, universe. Add 512 Desk Channels, lets say User numbers 1-512, type 1 Thru 512 @ 1/1 ENTER (#/# = Universe/DMX Address). Close the Fixture Window, open the Pr…
  • Another option is to go to cue 3, make sure all other playback is released except for this cue, select every fixture in your show and press Live Touch. This will Touch all fixtures and their values in cue 3 as well as the default state of every othe…
  • Kyle, Have you looked into the Warping capabilities? You can create just about any warp imaginable with the Warping User Interface.
  • Kyle, If you are going to be using the DML along with the onboard warping capabilities I would recommend creating your own warp preset. Download and install Projector Toolset:
  • Instead of just choosing "Close" under Shutter, send a value of 0. That should do the trick.
  • Stephen, On ma-share under "SHOWGUN and SHOWGUN 2.5 Libraries" you can use the SHOWGUN Fixture and SHOWGUN Tracking Ring. These should work fine, let me know if they do not. Thanks,
  • Also remember to make sure that your DLs and CMA are on the same version of software otherwise this can cause communication issues.
  • Hi Peter, Do you have v3.1.0 HogPC software as well as v3.1.0 Connectivity driver? Is HogPC on a different computer from the Visualizer? What visualizer are you using? What are the IP addresses of your console and computer? Make sure that thes…
  • Ok. Then your steps are correct, just make sure to have Motion at 0 when setting Capture to SDI. Also make sure you have set it to either PAL or NTSC (this was implemented in v1.5.0 however the current version is 1.5.2).
  • Anthony, Are you trying to output the camera via SDI? If so you need to set your Motion's Intensity to 0, then choose Camera to SDI, wait about 5 seconds, and then bring Intensity back to Full. This should then be sending this units camera feed o…
  • Bruno, Another thing to try is to copy the boot code of the SHOWGUN and then try the upload again. This can be done in the menu. Could you also copy and past the Discovery and Upload Logs in Echo and send them to us? Thanks.
  • Just to clarify, as Marty did pretty well already, you can't use a DL.3 long throw lens in a DL2. Also, you might want to consider using a SHOWGUN to do this. If the image doesn't need to be extremely high resolution and doesn't need all the fanc…
  • Hi Bruno, What version of Echo are you using? Is it v1.3? If not please download this version here:
  • Hi Anthony, They're probably just unplugged from the computer motherboard. Those LEDs can be traced back to the computer and actually plug in right near the computer chassis fan. Just double check that they're fully seated and have the correct po…
  • Aruvin, send me an email and I'll get you those documents.
  • Cormac, I will have to let Matt give you an answer on that one since he is much more on the engineering side of things and can give you a better answer.
  • Yes. If you want to use anything besides DVI output from Axon you'll have to use a scan converter to go DVI -> S-Vid or other video medium. An example of a professional level one would be the Folsom Image Pro but is probably overkill for your spe…
  • Joe, I just want to clarify a few things. Marty did briefly touch on this but be aware that you cannot send video out from Axon via S-Video or SDI. These are for capture only. Only one DVI port on the video card outputs your graphics stream. In r…
  • I would re-image first.
  • First make sure that your IPs are in range. Something like 169.254.x.x on your computer and DL3s. You can view the DL IP within the menu under Info->Version. You should also try to ping the DL just to make sure they are communicating. Ma…
  • Yes. So CMA and the DLs have the same version of software, correct? If not make sure they are on the same version.
  • Vincent, have you upgraded CMA as well?
  • There are actually a few reasons. Perhaps the one you are mainly looking for is that the content in each StudioPix or SHOWPIX is not high resolution. It is literally just the pixels you are seeing. If you are thinking that it should behave like Coll…
  • In short, you can't.
  • Right. Just choose any file you'd like to use as your content. Just browse somewhere on your computer where you have a photo or movie.
  • Joe, reread my post. I wasn't quite finished when I hit Submit.
  • Hi Joe, You will need to have fixtures connected to add user content, but not Pixellage content. For pixellage you need to go to the Pixellage Tab and choose Create. Then you can create your template and click on Media to choose your media file. …
  • I thought the same thing but it supposedly works with s-video... Vincent, have you tried a completely new showfile? Have everything hooked up beforehand and then just try to route cameras? It still seems like there is an effect on somewhere wh…
  • Vincent, So you have already swapped SDI cables correct? Both your external cables AND the two internal ones? Have you tried reversing the setup so Unit 2 sends the camera to Unit 1? If you say s-video works but not SDI then there is some s…
  • A couple things you could do are check your DMX window to see if it is actually reporting that you are outputting DMX from the programmer. I would recommend releasing playback (PIG + Release) and then press Setup -> DMX to see if what you have in…
  • Mac, If you have a Mac available you should give the archiving a try. The one thing about the archive is that you will not be able to see file names or dmx addresses, it is a DL/Axon specific file format. As Jon mentioned, dragging and droppin…
  • Hello Mac, There are currently size limitations on content archives. On a PC you will be limited to around a 3 Gig archive. On a Mac we have successfully tested up to about 32 Gigs. How much content are you trying to archive? You could also drag …
  • The DP2000 does still communicate with all Hog OS products like it always has. With v3 and later you can now switch "modes" on the DP from its standard operating mode to ArtNet mode. In ArtNet mode you can run Artnet into the RJ45 port and the DP wi…
  • Just the DML 1200 update package. The EMP software is for managing user content either from your laptop or from the Media Wing. I would recommend updating everything you have but the DML 1200 Update Package is what is probably most critical in your …
  • Ok. The current release has been updated to 1.1.9. Please follow this link and update your fixtures to the latest software and then let me know if you're still having a problem.
  • What version software package is on your DMLs? 1.1.8 is the latest release. What DMX universe are you trying to set them to? One thing to try is to unplug ArtNet and/or DMX then try setting the universe. See if that works, in the mean time I'll set …
  • Aruvin, What version of software is on your DMLs and do the ones that aren't responding have the same version as the one that is? Are you making this setting in the menu of the DML?
  • We have this video of DL.1 with Catalyst. Many of the stock ariels are the same so this will give you an idea of what to expect.
  • Are you sure that when you encoded your content you set it to be all I Frames? That is primarily what the DLs use to sync. The other things to make sure are that your GOP = 1 and bit rate is not too high. What encoder did you use? You can always …
  • Yes there is just one board in that fixture and you'll see it running down the inside of the electronics housing (top box).
  • If when homing tilt it slams into one of its end positions then there is something wrong with the sensor circuit (sensor, wire, or board). Check the sensor harness for continuity and shorts and make sure that it is plugged firmly into the main board…
  • Just for clarification here: The Litho Wheel in SHOWGUN does not have a hard stop. If you physically move it then it will continously rotate. The question relates to a feature called Quick Path. This will take the shortest path to the next gob…
  • The difference lies in the fact that the HogIII is actually Linux based whereas the iPC, Roadhog, and Fullboar are all XP Embedded. As far as making them similar I doubt that will happen or can happen.
