Welcome and thank you for using version v1.0 of Unison Mosaic DMX Record.

Capture Your Console

DMX Record is a free, standalone utility for capturing multiple universes of sACN or Art-Net lighting data. DMX Record lets you capture complex lighting programming from another lighting control system and import recordings straight into Designer 2 for playback on Mosaic Show Controllers.

DMX Record

Console operators can download DMX Record and capture recordings of programming, with no familiarity of Designer 2 necessary. Recorded data can be reviewed and trimmed in DMX Record, and metadata - such as lighting sequence descriptions and patch information – can be embedded with the recording.

Capture lighting programming from another control system to:

  • Playback detailed moving light sequences.

  • Save any lighting programming for long term permanent installation.

  • Upgrade a legacy system by recording the existing looks and sequences without having to reverse engineer old programming.

  • Take mockup and concept programming to a live project.

Move lighting data from a console to an MSC to benefit from the MSC’s autonomous playback and show control features.

Designer 2 Integration

In Unison Mosaic Designer 2, import the files shared from DMX Record, then simply drop the recording preset onto a group of fixtures patched the same as in the recording, then trigger the controller to play back the recording on a timeline exactly as programmed on the console. Or, benefit from Designer's powerful and flexible playback tools, override, priority and LTP rules to use the recording data as a foundation, with huge potential to manipulate and programme on top of it:

  • Selectively playback only some of the capture by dropping the recording onto a sub-group and it will play only on those fixtures.

  • Combine captures by placing multiple recording presets on different fixture groups.

  • Colour and intensity can be easily changed with Designer presets programmed as normal on a different timeline, whilst the rest of the captured data continues to playback from the recording preset.

  • Gobo, beam, position and other parameters can also be programmed in Scenes in Designer as before, to override parts of a recording.

  • Adjust recording speed by setting timeline rate or change the preset length to trim the recording.

Help Overview
