Change order on faders.

Post by steffena » Tue Jan 21, 2020 9:45 pm

I have a Cameo Hydrabeam bar that has 4 moving heads on one bar.
As I use the bar upside down, the order of the heads are reverse compered to the faders in show buddy.
Is there anyway I can change the order on the faders, (a output matrix or something)?

Hi there, have a look at the Channel Patching function in DMXIS or Show Buddy Active. That will enable you to swap your faders around as required.

You are aware the fixture has advanced settings to invert the display when you hang it upside down.

Does that not also change the lamp order?

Thx Cgrafx. I looked for that option in the manual, but did not find it, but I will have a lok on the control panel.

It's not part of Show Buddy. You need to open it from Dmxis or Show Buddy Active. Set it up and you're good to go :)

Conclusion: there is no "upside-down " setting in the Hydrabeam. only Pan and Tilt Invert
But there is a channel patching setting in Showbuddy, this is not very intuitive, but I´ll try to work it out.

Not 100% this is your fixture but From the User Manaul for the 4 Head Moving Bar Hydrabeam 4000 (pages 7-8)
Advanced Settings -> Display invert

thanks Cgrafx.

I got the impression, that it was only the display, that was turned upside down, not the faders beeing inverted, but I never checked.
ended up using the channel each function in Showbuddy Active, that worked for me.
