Combinging dimmer and strobe channels in a light bar

Post by madgadget » April 12th, 2019, 12:29 am

Hi all, I have light bar with 8 segments that has individual dimmer, strobe, and auto mode for each segment. Is there any way I can link these into one slider? so far I only see macro or individaul sliders.

Perhaps one way is to define a fixture with just 1 segment. You would add 8 of these to the Freestyler workspace making sure you address each one correctly. If Freestyler does not automaticall create a group then do so. Selecting the group will select all of the segments and all segments should react to the dimmer slider, the strobe slider and the auto mode slider.

If your instrument has other functions you would need a second fixture definition that would provide control of this/these common function/s.
