Hello, I have 102 DMX lights that I have setup to be controlled using Output Tasks. I am using dmxLAN Node 1s on Artnet. I can control all lights with no problem. My issue comes in when some groups of lights (in example, hallway lights) needs to be continuously turned on. When I play the next output task (another set of DMX channels), the current running task/lights will flicker OFF for 2 seconds before it goes on again. In a nutshell, say, DMX 1 and DMX 2 will turn off for a while when i turn on DMX 3. But DMX 3 wont turn off when I play and light that has a lower DMX value. I hope i made sense. Here's a test visualizer I have done to explain this issue further: Is this a known issue within Watchout or do i need to look at other hardwares that might be causing this issue? Hoping to get some thoughts on this. Cheers.
Hi I'm creating a new studio show, for the upcoming Winter Olympics. It's going to be used in a TV studio, and since we are going to be on air many times during the day, I want to automate some of the tasks. I want change from morning atmosphere to mid day, and ending up with an evening atmosphere. Is there any way of using the internal clock on the client PC, to automate these tasks, so e.g. at 1 PM it will switch to the midday loop? I know things can be controlled by LTC, and that you can script certain events, but I haven't been able to figure out a method to accomplish what I have described. Is there any way to do this, entirely inside Watchout, or do I need an external trigger? Best regards Christian
