DMX Color Macros?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of purchasing a Chauvet Par series LED light fixture which can run on DMX.  I currently have a DMX universe in my LOR program for a three light laser, and it works very well.  My question is, the Chauvet fixture has a channel reserved for "color macros".  I assume this allows you to mix all three of the RGB colors to create custom colors within a single channel.  How would you do this in LOR?  I also assume that if the light was connected to a standard DMX control board, you would create the custom color macros on that board.  Here is the manual.

the lights your looking at are self contained they don't need a separate controller just give a start channel

So would these color macros be created within the light fixture itself, rather than in SE?  Or is the fixture shipped with pre-programmed macros?

It will work either way it's the channel you select in the menu that tell it how to operate .

There are many intensities reserved for the macro channel, but I don’t think they are pre-programmed.  Maybe just need to purchase one of these and experiment. 😄
