OSC Direct control over single fader?

Post by zackhinrichs » Mon Jan 10, 2022 7:43 am

Hello!

Was wondering if its possible with D-Pro to control and receive feedback via OSC for individual dmx channels like what is documented for Showbuddy Active?

Command
/dmxis/ch/x [level]
x = DMXIS channel number (1-512)
[level] = float representing the
channel level (0.0-1.0)

TX & RX

Description
Sets a single DMX channel fader to the
specified level.

I'm trying to achieve "motorized faders" effect from D-Pro to TouchOSC.

OSC in D-Pro lets you manipulate the Show Control window. You cannot access individual DMX channels directly via OSC (as you can in Show Buddy Active)

In D-Pro, first create some simple cues which set the required channels to 100%. For example, here's a cue that sets a single dimmer on channel 1 to 100%...

Then drag those cues onto Show Control sliders, and activate the "Override" flag...

Then use the following OSC command to control the cue...

Awesome! I will give this a try.
