Hi everybody, I'm looking for some advice on the following: Recently purchased a number of Martin Rush 2 LED parcans, connected to an ETC Congo Jr console. Dimmer curves for the Rushes look 'clunky' - I've tried all the different options for this on the lamps, is there any way this can operate more smoothly? I'm new to DMX lights - thanks in advance!
Make sure you've updated your console to the latest Cobalt software - currently 7.3.1. There have been various improvements to 16-bit Intensity over the years. However, LEDs aren't tungsten and don't behave the same. An LED can snap to a different level instantly, while tungsten always fades due to the physics of a filament. In a mixed rig this difference can be quite visible. Some LED fixtures have built-in smoothing and/or various forms of tungsten simulation, which might be adjustable or can be enabled/disabled. I believe the RUSH 2 LED Par has settings for dimming curve and speed/smoothing, you may wish to adjust those.
