New head file / preset color palettes do not match

Postby nhusdf-9489 » Wed Jan 29, 2020 6:43 pm

I'm trying to create head files for the Eurolite LED Super Strobe ABL. The fixture has a strobe section and an RGB section, and the idea is to make two head files, one for the strobe, and one for the RGB.

The strobe head works fine. Simple as gets: Dimmer and Strobe speed.

But the RGB part (5 channels: Dimmer, Strobe, R, G, B – in that order) is not working correctly

The head is set up like this (see the attachment):
1ch / Dimmer / HTP / Int (0) / …
2ch / Strobe / LTP / Shutter (2) / …
3ch / Red / LTP / Cyan (16) / …
4ch / Green / LTP / Magenta (17) / …
5ch / Blue / LTP / Yellow (18) / …

When I patch the fixture and test the automatically generated palettes, they are all completely (but kind of logically) off:
White = Intensity 100% / Cyan 100% / Strobe 100%
Red = Intensity 100% / Cyan 0% / Strobe 0%
Green = Intensity 0% / Cyan 0% / Strobe 255
Blue = Intensity 0% / Cyan 100% / Strobe 0%

Could the offset of the attributes be because the channels are not starting with R G and B? What would be the smartest way to fix this?

Also: there's and "ERRORS Shutter Types L" prompt in the head editor. What's this?

I'm running v1.8.3.1 of MagicQ

Found it!

In the Head's VIEW PALETTES tab, there was an offset with the channel values.
