You can drive lighting and scene changes in DMXIS from Logic Pro, but you can't control the physical DXMIS interface directly without DMXIS software in-between.

Any starter basic videos would help nothing to advanced because this is my first time doing this

I'd start with the standalone DMXIS software, not the plugin (you can only run one or the other).

Set your light to start at D001 (which you say you've already done). Load a fixture template that matches your lighting fixture (this will add labels to the individual DMX channels (for example Master Dimmer -> ch1, R -> ch2, G -> ch3, B -Ch4, etc....)

Then if you move the faders up you should see your lights respond appropriately.

Set the lights to a color you like and save that as a preset.

Repeat for different color or light settings, saving a new preset each time.

Once that has been done, you should be able to click through the presets to change the light settings.

if that works, quit the app, and load the DMXIS VST plugin version running in Logic. You should now be able to trigger the presets you just created.

Ok i have found the library for the fixture and the interface is set and RGB all work on different faders, how do i know what notes affect one preset? i can manually make lights change red, green, blue but my pencilled in notes dont do anything and when i start the song the main fader drops

I have sorted this using overwrite when faders set to desired preset. I have another question but this thread solved
