I Plugged into a Avolites dimmer today using vvvv and an Enttec Pro which worked well outputting 24 channels of DMX to the 24 dimmer channels. The problem happened when i reduced my output to a spread of 6 using an IO box with 6 rows. Instead of spread 0 controlling the first channel of each dimmer rack, e.g 1,7,13,19. the last dimmer rack crashed and put all channels at full. I had to turn off the dimmer and turn it back on again to regain control.
Is there an easy way to fill up the rest of the unused slices with a value of 0 when outputting dmx. Say for example i had an io box with 6 rows representing a small 6 channel dimmer. How would i stop channel 1 repeating down the DMX spread.
Im sorry if this is a really stupid question but I couldnt find out through the vorum search.
