First post here, so be gentle!! ...
I have some I have some 8 cell RGBW LED battens (ADJ Sweeper quads, running in 39ch mode) in the show I'm doing, and they are set up in the fixtures correctly on an IONxe to run as channel 161 & 162 and they work fine as a whole unit... I also know that I can bring up (for example) a single DMX control on the 1st red cell of the first batten by punching in: 'Address' '1/168' '@' '100' 'enter'
However, is there a way of recording a DMX address at a given value to a que - eg:
'Address' '1/168' '@' '50' 'record' 'cue' '54' ??
or does it have to be assigned to a channel to be able to be recorded?
I want to address each cell individually to be able to do a simple effect. (a car indicator effect) ... This idea has come about once the tech, dress and one show has been done, and so the 8 way battens are already programmed in - thus I done want to have to reprogram the entire show and also get my head around pixel mapping as there isn't the time!!!!
If it's not possible to directly address and program a DMX value to the que, then I will have to find an alternative solution by adding additional fixtures just for a 1 minute scene within a 2 hr show :(
controlling addresses from Live is meant to be used a last resort and not as regular control method that's why you can't record it into cues.
you can do the effect you want by patching the fixtures as multicell. so when looking in the library for the personality yo uwill see that there are two 39ch fixtures, one of the says MC at the end. that's the fixture type that allows you to control each cell of the fixture.
since the show has already started it's not without risk, or let's say not without investing some time to copy data in cues, after you change the patch.
the only other method i can think of is writing macros that park your address 168 to a certain value and unpark it later while firing those macros from cues. not that i would consider that an elegant solution, but it might the method that's least disruptive and still gets what you want
Hi, Thanks for this ... sadly though there does not seem to be a MC version of this fixture ... listed is the following:
American DJ --> Sweeper Beam Quad LED -->Sweeper Beam Quad LED 1ch Sweeper Beam Quad LED 6ch Sweeper Beam Quad LED 35ch [35ch]Sweeper Beam Quad LED 39ch 
and no multicell option
I'm running them in 39ch mode, but there doesn't appear to be any way of addressing each cell individually on the 8 way strip ... or am I missing something?
You may need to update your EOS software and/or fixture library because it's there.
35Ch MC & 39Ch MC versions.
ok, thanks ... I'll look tomorrow when back at work ... as it isn't there on the offline editor, ...
I tried a fixture library update on the offline editor and I've now lost ALL the fixtures on the offline editor, doh!! :( ...
From what I understand the newest fixture library will only works with the newest console software version. What version of software are you using?
