Patching ETC coorsource par and spot

Postby lutronjim » Mon Aug 27, 2018 3:59 am

When patching ETC colorsource par, there is no option for selecting number of DMX channels. It defaults to 5. The fixture can support 1,3,5 or 6. While 1 and 3 are not very useful, 6 certainly is – without it there is no lime color.

When patching ETC colorsource spot, there are options for 12 ch, 6 ch, 5ch DMX, and 6 ch DMX. I don't understand the 12 ch and 6 ch.

FYI I am trying to learn this desk coming from an ETC ExpressionIII console.

Thanks

ETC colorsource par: I don't know the fixture, but i suppose 1 is only dimmer and 3 is only RGB. These can be found in Generic.
For the 6 channel you can post in the bugtracker and add the manual. Then they can make it for you!

Colorsource spot: 12ch seems to have more color attributes, but this is a choice of ETC itself.

Check https://www.etcconnect.com/Products/Lig ... tures.aspx. Drilling down on par and spot will have datasheets.
