Calling All Code Slingers - Mapping LOR to DMX

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if any of our talented code slingers have written a script/pgm to input a LOR Channel Config File and output a remapped DMX Channel Config?

For example:

LOR Controller ID 1, Channel 1 = DMX Universe x channel 1

LOR Controller ID 2, Channel 1 = DMX Universe x channel 2

...

...

LOR Controller ID 2, Channel 1 = DMX Universe x channel 17

Where x is a user suppiled DMX Universe number.

I dont think it would be that difficult to create and was wondering if it already existed somewhere?

Unless you have hundreds and hundreds of channels, you can just use a text editor and the Replace function.

For proper syntax, just create a simple 2 or 3 universe sequence, maybe just 3 channels per universe.

Toss in a "regular" network and an "aux A" network and you can see how it should look.

The LMS file (or LAS for animations) is a "simple" XML file and is very editable. Be careful not to disturb the left margin indenting though. It matters.

Do I need to remind you to work on a COPY???

Believe me my friend, 30 years in this IT biz has taught me that copy/backup etc is my best friend ...

I can speak on this from painful experiences .. LOL ...

Thanks for the reply Jon .. I have a couple of other irons in fhe fire over on the Aussie web site as well ...

Looks like there may be a coding party one day after the season .. hehe..
