Fixture identification & manual

Post by Melgarh » September 4th, 2018, 9:31 pm

Good evening,

I would like to learn how to program DMX shows (very basic, about 8 fixtures) and need to start somewhere. So I've just picked up today 2 of these fixtures (and one extra non-DMX one) for 20 quid in hopes to do basic stuff such as colour chases and such. However it seems they are completely devoid of any branding whatsoever and come with no manual. Awesome.

Would anybody kindly inform me on the name of these per chance? After googling the effect they produce (8x8 LED points that change depending on the dip switch settings) it seems to be a Twin Moonflower (although found one identical called Twister..). Without name & manual, let alone the Fixture file, I don't think I will be using these for any self-education :(

Cheers for any kind person to point me in the right direction of the name, manual or even the fixture file! <3

Side note - and as a starter interface i've chosen JESE dmx tri mk1; found a great deal on it and it should be equivalent of Open DMX Enttec Pro; hopefully I've not messed up this choice either...

I think I've found the manual, sadly the DIP switches behave differently than described :(

I think I've just solved a question that has been asked 1000 times.

So, this light is 8 channel at the very least, as each of the rows of LED's is controlled by one channel. Each of those channels have 255 possibilities on which LED's will be on, which colour etc., basically pixel mapping.

So using any 8ch or more fixture and then using the color panel to go from 0-255 with 255 being Blackout you can program it. It is quite time consuming but that's what we get when we buy scrap crap for peanuts =)
