Just to confirm, the Clear function is only for D4/Titan personalities; when exporting to R20 files this option is ignored.

For Titan adding a virtual dimmer is usually preferable to using the Clear function and for R20 files setting the channel to HTP (or using mode 2 cues) is the best way.

The dimmer address is for fixtures that have a pending dimmer, such as the VL5 for example, where the fixture and dimmer can be on separate addresses.

Hi, With the always on relay curve, the output for that channel should be 255 regardless of the input level. The clear button usually sets the level to 0 however after the curve is applied this still gives an output of 255. As far as I am aware the dimmer should not go off for any reason with that c...

Hi, If you record your memories by channel, so you are only only recording the channels you have changed, you can have one memory (sub master) which just has the dimmer channel for all your fixtures and all the other memories without the dimmer channel. This can be difficult to get right but should ...

Hi,

To see the channel output list, which shows the DMX values (0-255), press the "On Screen" button below the arrow keys and select A [Patch by DMX]. You can then scroll up or down the list to find the channels/fixtures you are working on.

Hope this helps.

The patch is an interface to DirectX, which used to be part of Windows, and it needs full administrator privileges to work. To run as administrator: right click on t...
