VW2020 & Lightwright Exchange

Recommended Posts

I created a DMX Patch using the VW  DMX Patch Menu item.

It works great.

I want to send this information to Lightwright 6

What fields do i link & not link to LW & VW to keep this information intact.

I am overwriting info or its just being ignored,

This user U Dimmer, User Address, Universe/Address, Absolute Address, DMX Address is driving me nuts.

Screen shots appreciated

You want to link the Absolute Address field only. You should set the Lightwright to use the Address (i.e. 1553) format and NOT the universe/address format (i.e. 3/18).

VW will update the other fields automatically based on the Absolute Address when it gets data from LW.

klinzey is right.


I only make it work by inputing address info in the LW and sync back to VW, not the other way around.


Thanks Klinzey
