This forum is designed for you to get HELP with building fixtures, Please make an attempt if you get stuck YOU must upload your partial fixture file (as an exported fixture file) so we can point you in the right direction if you don't do this you won't LEARN and if you don't learn you will may never be able to get the fixtures you require. It is Very hard to make fixtures for people when we don't have the same light at hand to test it with after all having the light in front of you makes programing so much easier! That's why we will help but rarely build any fixtures for you. You Alone are the best person to build your fixtures if you need help ask if you want it building for you Don't....

Messy NJD NJ165 iStrobe

Post by RedTCat » December 2nd, 2019, 2:57 pm

I have just bought an NJD NJ165 iStrobe. It is a 5 channel unit, with 2 separate LED strobe lights. NJD don't seem to have thought very hard about how to arrange the DMX channels.
Channel 5 sets the mode:
  • Normal strobe light, LEDs controlled independently.
  • Normal strobe light, LEDs controlled simultaneously.
  • 4 different pre-programmed patterns.
  • 2 different sound activated patterns.
In the Independent mode channels 1-4 control: LED 1 brightness; LED 1 speed; LED 2 brightness; LED 2 speed.
In the simultaneous mode channels 1-2 control: LED 1+2 brightness; LED 1+2 speed.
OK so far … I can do something and ignore channels 3 and 4.

But: for the 5 different pattern modes you only have control of speed, which is set by Channel 1. So depending on Mode, Ch1 has different functions.

So far I've created 8 macros for the Modes: Independent, Simultaneous, P1, P2, P3, P4, Sound 1, Sound 2 - and four Custom Sliders for Ch1- 4. As there isn't much room for text on the sliders - and Ch1 changes function depending on mode - it looks messy.


Any ideas how to make this neater?
