Question: I am manually creating a DMXIS fixture file. How do I make a channel slider display 0-255, rather than the 0-100% default range?
(Please see this article for general information on fixture creation)
Say you add this “Zoom” channel to your fixture file:
As you move the slider, it will display a 0-100% value. If you want to have more precise control, simply replace the V,0,255 line above with this block of text:
S,0,0,0 S,1,1,1 S,2,2,2 S,3,3,3 S,4,4,4 S,5,5,5 S,6,6,6 S,7,7,7 S,8,8,8 S,9,9,9 S,10,10,10 S,11,11,11 S,12,12,12 S,13,13,13 S,14,14,14 S,15,15,15 S,16,16,16 S,17,17,17 S,18,18,18 S,19,19,19 S,20,20,20 S,21,21,21 S,22,22,22 S,23,23,23 S,24,24,24 S,25,25,25 S,26,26,26 S,27,27,27 S,28,28,28 S,29,29,29 S,30,30,30 S,31,31,31 S,32,32,32 S,33,33,33 S,34,34,34 S,35,35,35 S,36,36,36 S,37,37,37 S,38,38,38 S,39,39,39 S,40,40,40 S,41,41,41 S,42,42,42 S,43,43,43 S,44,44,44 S,45,45,45 S,46,46,46 S,47,47,47 S,48,48,48 S,49,49,49 S,50,50,50 S,51,51,51 S,52,52,52 S,53,53,53 S,54,54,54 S,55,55,55 S,56,56,56 S,57,57,57 S,58,58,58 S,59,59,59 S,60,60,60 S,61,61,61 S,62,62,62 S,63,63,63 S,64,64,64 S,65,65,65 S,66,66,66 S,67,67,67 S,68,68,68 S,69,69,69 S,70,70,70 S,71,71,71 S,72,72,72 S,73,73,73 S,74,74,74 S,75,75,75 S,76,76,76 S,77,77,77 S,78,78,78 S,79,79,79 S,80,80,80 S,81,81,81 S,82,82,82 S,83,83,83 S,84,84,84 S,85,85,85 S,86,86,86 S,87,87,87 S,88,88,88 S,89,89,89 S,90,90,90 S,91,91,91 S,92,92,92 S,93,93,93 S,94,94,94 S,95,95,95 S,96,96,96 S,97,97,97 S,98,98,98 S,99,99,99 S,100,100,100 S,101,101,101 S,102,102,102 S,103,103,103 S,104,104,104 S,105,105,105 S,106,106,106 S,107,107,107 S,108,108,108 S,109,109,109 S,110,110,110 S,111,111,111 S,112,112,112 S,113,113,113 S,114,114,114 S,115,115,115 S,116,116,116 S,117,117,117 S,118,118,118 S,119,119,119 S,120,120,120 S,121,121,121 S,122,122,122 S,123,123,123 S,124,124,124 S,125,125,125 S,126,126,126 S,127,127,127 S,128,128,128 S,129,129,129 S,130,130,130 S,131,131,131 S,132,132,132 S,133,133,133 S,134,134,134 S,135,135,135 S,136,136,136 S,137,137,137 S,138,138,138 S,139,139,139 S,140,140,140 S,141,141,141 S,142,142,142 S,143,143,143 S,144,144,144 S,145,145,145 S,146,146,146 S,147,147,147 S,148,148,148 S,149,149,149 S,150,150,150 S,151,151,151 S,152,152,152 S,153,153,153 S,154,154,154 S,155,155,155 S,156,156,156 S,157,157,157 S,158,158,158 S,159,159,159 S,160,160,160 S,161,161,161 S,162,162,162 S,163,163,163 S,164,164,164 S,165,165,165 S,166,166,166 S,167,167,167 S,168,168,168 S,169,169,169 S,170,170,170 S,171,171,171 S,172,172,172 S,173,173,173 S,174,174,174 S,175,175,175 S,176,176,176 S,177,177,177 S,178,178,178 S,179,179,179 S,180,180,180 S,181,181,181 S,182,182,182 S,183,183,183 S,184,184,184 S,185,185,185 S,186,186,186 S,187,187,187 S,188,188,188 S,189,189,189 S,190,190,190 S,191,191,191 S,192,192,192 S,193,193,193 S,194,194,194 S,195,195,195 S,196,196,196 S,197,197,197 S,198,198,198 S,199,199,199 S,200,200,200 S,201,201,201 S,202,202,202 S,203,203,203 S,204,204,204 S,205,205,205 S,206,206,206 S,207,207,207 S,208,208,208 S,209,209,209 S,210,210,210 S,211,211,211 S,212,212,212 S,213,213,213 S,214,214,214 S,215,215,215 S,216,216,216 S,217,217,217 S,218,218,218 S,219,219,219 S,220,220,220 S,221,221,221 S,222,222,222 S,223,223,223 S,224,224,224 S,225,225,225 S,226,226,226 S,227,227,227 S,228,228,228 S,229,229,229 S,230,230,230 S,231,231,231 S,232,232,232 S,233,233,233 S,234,234,234 S,235,235,235 S,236,236,236 S,237,237,237 S,238,238,238 S,239,239,239 S,240,240,240 S,241,241,241 S,242,242,242 S,243,243,243 S,244,244,244 S,245,245,245 S,246,246,246 S,247,247,247 S,248,248,248 S,249,249,249 S,250,250,250 S,251,251,251 S,252,252,252 S,253,253,253 S,254,254,254 S,255,255,255
The slider will now display 0-255 values (allowing you to accurately position the slider), and you can directly type in 0-255 numbers by clicking on the value under the slider.
