here my first arnet story:
We first used one Artnet with 0 to 15 universes. The Controllers (DigiDOT C4 live) uses 4 “DATA” with universe 0 to 11.
When we send it to more than one IP the universes 12 to 15 come into the second controller. If the artnet node where not limited to 16, everything would worked out fine with autoconfig of the controllers and my first development in vvvv.
Than we end up in numbering der universes 0-11 in each controller with IP and have one artnetsend for each IP.
The real magic is ordering the spreads for the data, the project has not finished yet, there will come more led modules with other universe dimensions and so on. vvvv was also great for fixing hardware mistakes like, 2 universes where wrong soiled, so I reveresed them in booth directions … ? … worked out fine, not sure about performance.
Here is my patch for ArtNet to C4 for 2 full controllers.
