ArtNET ELIDY

Post  Sebastien on Wed Feb 10, 2016 1:27 am

Hello. Thank you for this new software version.

Im working on a new project with 118 Elidy S. I would like to control it with Ai.
With the new version what is the best solution to do that? Still with Artnet Grid?

Thank you for your help.

hello,

as in version 8, the best way is to use the modular led fixture and the output page associated with it.

Last time I ask for that the answer was Artnet Structure and ArtNet Grid.

Here is a 3D view of the setup. I need to creat all the psace between the Elidy.

I need to patch and place Elidy one by one on the output page?

looks good!

the first and second icons on the top row let you save and load the layouts - it can be handy if you want to reuse it in another project Smile

Hello. Im now in rehearsal and I come back to you with some bug.
When I use Modular LED Fixture the canvas Res X must be a multiple of 128 or there is some bug on the ArtNet Output.
Example here Res X=131 :


Normaly the output should be like that (here the Res X is 128) :


In the output page sometime the command Copy Past stop working.
If you use more than 11 ArtNet Univers inside the same Modular LED Fixture. The last ArtNet universe lag and sometime freeze in reallity (not inside the output view).
In the output view the module don't snap to the pixel grid when you move it.
The DMX address start at 0 and not 1 like it should be...

I also have a small request.
It could be really good to have an option for the artnet output to keep sending information over the network.

For example the Elidy goes off after 5 seconds if it didn't receive ArtNet data.
So for the moment I can't use fix media...
(I can but I need to use ArtNet node to resend data continuously)

Inside Luminex node this is the Mode option. You can choose between "normal" or "Zero".
"Zero" mode didn't resend. It's like AI.
"Normal" mode send the last ArtNet data continuously even if there is no change or if the ArtNet source stop sending information.

Also the canvas editor is not working. I can't see the polygon on the page.

And I found how to send Artnet continuously. Maybe a button inside the system settings to change that could be good.
For the moment you need to change this option in every fixtures even if the fixture is just a screen and don't need to use artnet out.

Ok so after using Continuous artnet out from the media server I have lots of problem over the network with artnet conflicts so this option in Ai is also not working correctly...
In Ai I use artnet out from universe 41 to 55 and when I activate continuous out I have conflict over the artnet univers 62 and this universe is generated from the MA.

After calling the guys from Chromlech Elidy.
They said me that the Artnet lag and freeze over 11 universe come from the Elidy controler. So it's not from Ai.

And to be exact it's not over 11 but over 12. The universe 13 start to freeze.

Hey Sebastien,

I'm happy that you've managed to get through this. Just to clarify on a little gotchas that you found that should be useful to other people:

You are right the Modular LED Fixture requires a power of 2 for the X resolution or 2^n. So a number of 16/32/64/128/256/512 etc. This is not the case on the Y axis however and this can be any resolution to suit your requirements.

For a continuous output stream you do indeed have to turn every Artnet Server in the system to allow this. The other Artnet Servers can be found in the mixer of each fixture, under "Artnet Device". But I think a global button in the system settings would be a good idea  Very Happy

You also mentioned that your model wasn't working correctly in the canvas editor. Could you possibly email that model to support@avolitesmedia.com so that we can have a look at it.

Thank you for your reply.

I found all the continuous output stream and I don't know exactly why but it's not really working. I have some conflicts when I use this option so I need to use a Luminex Node to send Artnet data continuously and it's now working.

For the canvas editor I checked just now and I can see the Poly but when I change the fixture it didnt refresh the obj. It just change the resolution and use the same obj even if I refresh the screen by changing the selection tool.
