Hello wise ones,
I am in the middle of setting up a visualizer that mimics the house LX hang in our theatre so that students can practice and build shows when the theatre is unavailable. Through some trial and error, I've got most things working, but I am stuck on trying to get a few remaining lights to work. The key problem I am having is with two VL 1000s with tungsten bulbs, which require a dimmer in addition to their DMX input. By patching the VLs to their appropriate DMX address, I can get the lights to move in Vision, but I can't get them to turn on. This makes sense, but I can't figure out how to additionally give the lights their dimmer information so that I can also control intensity.
Additionally, I have 4 I-cue mirrors that are attached to ETC Colorsource spots with a DMX iris. When I import them into vision, I get the Colorsource, and I get a second Source4 with an I-cue attached to it. I can't seem to find the DMX iris anywhere. I can control all of the aspects of the Colorsource, but it is not going through the I-cue. If I turn on the I-cue (by selecting it in Vision), I can control pan and tilt, but the light beam is incandescent. I could live (for now) with just the intensity properties of the Source4 and the pan and tilt of the I-cue (foregoing the colour changing and DMX iris), but again, I can't figure out how to control the intensity of the I-cue.
