So I've run into a bit of a problem with a system I'm designing.We're using the Navis F Drive, to control 48 FTW fixtures. We're trying to use an Echo Touch Controller, to patch the fixtures into different Spaces, so they can respond to Echo Presets and Space commands.
But that's when I realized you can't do that. The workaround if I wanted to do that now, would be to purchase additional Scene Controllers, patch the Navis Fixtures as Echo Zones on the controller for a different space, then Patch them into the Touch screen as an echo Zone with Color.But that seems like a really convoluted workaround, which could be solved by patching DMX fixtures into different Echo Spaces.Otherwise, it seems like currently the only way to use the Navis F Drive is to patch all the fixtures into a single Space the Zone Controller is in.
At the moment this is not supported in EchoTouch. DMX output is only allowed form the space that the EchoTouch is assigned to. Echo zones can be assigned to any space which is why the multiple DMX scene controllers solution works. We do have plans to allow DMX addresses to be assigned to spaces but no timeline on that functionality quite yet.
Glad to hear it's on the roadmap. Time to get creative.
