Losing effects in DMX?


Recommended Posts

As far as I know, you never did, but the computer had to process the effects and send individual level commands rather than just telling the controller to create the effect.

When in DMX the computer tells the controller to turn the channel on and off every time in a shimmer or a twinkle. With normal LOR controllers the computer just says "Start twinkle/shimmer and finish it at this time"

 

This is because DMX doesn't support different commands and most DMX devices wouldn't know what to do.

 

You won't notice any difference unless you have thousands of channels.m

Shimmer is an LOR command, that is not interpreted through DMX.

 

So yes, if you convert your network from LOR to DMX, you will not have shimmer anymore.  I tried it and went back to LOR just because of this (I use shimmer enough to go back).
