Hi,

 

We recently bought some Robe 300 LEDWash moving fixtures for our school, however there is no fixture library personality available for this fixture, and we have had no luck trying to write the personality library file for our Smartfade ML using the instructions in the manual.

We are trying to use Mode 4 which is 10 channels.

Does anyone have any ideas or have already built a fixture library file they could send? Any help would be much appreciated as we are about to run a new school musical.

Many thanks,

 

David H

Where did you get stuck trying to make your own personality?

In Mode 4 the attributes you want are (in order):
1: Pan, 2: Pan Fine, 3: Tilt, 4: Tilt Fine, 5: User 6*, 6: User 5*, 7: Colour Wheel 1, 8: Zoom, 9: Strobe/Shutter, 10: Intensity.

*User 5 is normally Control functions. You can pick any User fader you like for these attributes.

Attached is a quick show file containing a User Personality for the Robe Robin 300 LEDWash in Mode 4.
- I am a little surprised at your choice of mode, why not use Mode 3 (15 DMX channels) which has colour mixing?

Keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Hi Richard,

Thanks so much for sending this file so promptly. We tried it and it worked, but as you rightly suggested it does not have colour mixing enabled.

I thought the colour wheel would link into the desks inbuilt colour mixing facility, and I was wrong.

 

Is there a chance you have a Mode 3 .asc file available (15 channel mode) as you mention above?

The problem I was having is the fixture would simply not fade up - we spent 7 hours today trying it before I had notification of your email!

With thanks,

David

The fixture not fading up would imply you missed out the Intensity attribute when making your User Personality, or the Strobe attribute was stuck at "Shutter Closed" (0%)

I've attached a Mode 3 version.

Keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Here are all the modes for Congo for the Robe Robin 300 LED Wash. The show file is for version 6.1.1, so if you are using an earlier version, please use the IMPORT function to import these templates into your show.

Thanks much -

Sarah
