I realize it's too late for a big show. I plan on just a basic show for this year using pre-made sequences and without sound. So if I'm unstranding this correctly, at the very minimum I'll need:
For computer set up...computer connected via Cat 6 to controller?
For "director" set up...director (how does it connect?) to controller?
philnuffer mentioned a "dongle"...what's the description? what's it for?
DownTown...what software would be best to start with? Where to buy? Does the controller not come with pre-installed software?
Some additional general questions...
Thinking about using a raspberry pi 3 for the "brains". Does anyone else use this set up? would you recommend over the Mini Director? what else is needed for this type of set up?
I've seen talk of licenses...What are they? Is a license a must? What license(s) do I need?
I realize this is a lot of questions aND are probably very subjective, but I would really appreciate any help that would point me in the right direction.
Thanks again for the help...I know everyone is busy right now.
