Controlling Pan/Tilt directly from MIDI faders

Post by Dave Brown [admin] » Tue May 07, 2019 10:09 am

If you want to manually control some fixture parameters (for example to position Pan/Tilt on some movers) you can use DIRECT CONTROL:
  • Open File > Preferences > Remote Control
  • Click "learn new mapping" and move a MIDI fader
  • Select "DMX Output: DIRECT CONTROL"
  • Type a comma separated list of the Pan channels to control
  • Repeat with a different MIDI fader for Tilt channels
DIRECT CONTROL overrides any Pan/Tilt values currently being transmitted by active Show Control cues. To return control to the Show Control window, map the CANCEL DIRECT CONTROL action to a spare MIDI button.
