Using ProtoPixel Create with DMX¶
To use DMX, you have to edit the properties of the fixture (imagine that you created a fixture type line, which are several light points in a row). In the inspector you will see the DMX Layout property:
You have enter the DMX channel distribution. For instance, if your fixture accepts 10 channels, the first one being luminosity, next 3 being RGB color, and the rest being various effects that you want to leave to 0, the layout would result in:
Possible values are:
The fixture DMX addresses will start with 1 and accumulate the number of channels in the layout: 1,11,21,31 …
Then you have to connect with the Art-Net device (with DMX output); first make sure it is connected to the network or directly wired to the computer.
Add a Controller, and assign the fixture to outlet 1 (= universe 0). In the Controller, you should be able to select the Art-Net device from the menu.
