I'm about to dive in and create some personalities to use those Encoder wheels on the right of the console. But although I have a lot of PRS files for the editor, the filenames are a bit cryptic. Is there a list with filenames (verified) against mfg and fixture type.
Primarily I'm interested in getting some inexpensive U'King Moving Heads going. There is a DMX sheet for it but I can't find out how to download it here for some one to look at. Bottom line I want to use it in 10 channel mode with 1 & 2 as (16bit) pan, 3 & 4 as tilt. 5 is 0-255 P&T speed, 6 is 0-255 master dimmer and 7 strobe. 8 is broken down into 0-9 white 10-19 Color 1 and so on to 255. We're not interested in CHs 9 and 10.
If you know of anything similar, could let me have its file name so I could modify it perhaps. That would be appreciated. How these P&T are connected to Encoder wheels is of particular importance to me.
The libraries of fixtures that were built are available here: http://www.etcconnect.com/Support/Consoles/Legacy/Expression-3-and-ECS/Software.aspx Each is broken down by manufacturer. Please keep in mind that Expression was discontinued in 2008 so it is unlikely that any fixture made after that time would have a matching profile.
As for creating your own personality, remember to name the file using DOS file name limitations which means a maximum of 8 characters before the file type, no characters other than numbers and letters, and no spaces.
Oh, I realize the Expression 3 did a grand job (and in our smaller theatre, still doing it) - And yep - Ok with "DOS" (which dates me thankyou :)
