Maximize

Right now, the one thing that would make DMXIS better for me is Make the DMXIS window be able to Maximize, and take up the entire screen of my laptop I am old and have crappy vision. Videos of our band all feature me squinting at the screen instead of smiling at the audience. I should be able to gla...

Re: DMXIS v1.6.8 beta release

fwiw, I'm using it 1.6.8 (on Windows 10 - 64 bit) and it works great.


The ability to De-Select is a HUGE help for a fumble fingered mouse user like me.
Thank you!

I have 2 laptops, One is Windows 10 64 bit (and that's where DMXIS resides currently) The other is on Windows 7 32 bit If I install 32 bit DMXIS on the Win 7 laptop, can I take the data from the Win 10 64 bit computer and restore it onto the Win7 32 bit laptop? I assume the answer is no, but you nev...

Re: If I have 2 DMXIS Dongles ........

When you switch DMXIS boxes, the software asks you to enter the unlock code for that box. If you write your unlock codes onto the boxes, you're always good to go. So my shows/presets, etc, won't be affected? Just type in the unlock code? (I wonder if I have the unlock code for my first box. Only ty...

Re: Deselect ???

Is there a new update on the way? I noticed your reply was in April.

I'm running DMXIS Standalone 1.6.3

Is de-select in that version?

(Thank you for listening and considering the suggestion!)

Is there a "reverse" option somewhere on chases that reverses the direction that the lights chase in? I have 16 lights in a row. If I set up a chase on the 8 lights on the right, and that chase goes right to left (start at the outside and chasing into the middle) , how do I make a chase that does th...

Re: Please let us maximize standalone DMXIS!

I run DMXIS on a 11" netbook. The DMXIS window is TINY.

This is the ONLY program of any type that I have that won't maximize.

I love DMXIS, but there are some little things like this that fixing them would make it even MORE lovable!

Re: Deselect ???

I can't believe there's no way to De-Select. When setting up a big chase, I hold control and one at a time click on the channels I want. It's extremely common to hit an extra channel. In any other program, while holding control, you would just click the enabled channel a 2nd time and that would de-s...

Re: Intelligent Chase but not linear chase

My issue is if one of the colors (say orange which is a combination of Red and Green)

When I chase orange using anything but intelligent fade, the red and green don't move together and instead of orange fading in and out, I get Green and Red popping up, unwanted.

If I set up a chase with 8 cans that are purple (mix of red and blue) , if I use Intelligent chase, the cans stay purple and chase, but my only option seems to be a linear chase (from left to right). I can't make them do sine wave or triangle chase types, because when I do, the red and blue do not m...

Re: Can I use a 5 pin midi controller w/a usb converter box

Yes and no. You dont get an editing option with the stage setter like you do with a lot of modern midi devices. So you cant map the functions of your stage setter to specific function of DMXIS. It is a stand alone dmx device so the midi in it is at fixed channel values.. That's why I keep pushing y...

Re: Can I use a 5 pin midi controller w/a usb converter box

Yeah stagesetters have a crazy midi assignment that's difficult to work with occasionally because there is no editor for the midi assignments. In other words , they're fixed to certain functions and that's what you get. But with learn in DMXIS, I hit learn and move the fader and there it is. Right?...

Yup I use a Roland breakout box all the time, that way I can add my FCB1010 to the controllers I am able to use. I the connect all my midi devices through that. A powered usb hub helps also. Cool.

Re: Hanging fixtures upside down

Most movers have reverse pan and reverse tilt in their menus All my generic ones do. Most of them even have an option to flip the display so you can read it upside down! (Not in DMXIS, these settings are in the menu on the light itself) usually will say rPan (r for reverse Pan) or rTiL (reverse Tilt)
