Hi Guys,

I came across with a project where I have to use screens and LED panels. I usually create a fixture in C4D and export it to create the content and to be imported onto AI, Easyyyy!!!. Now the gig will be a couple of screens (1080p each) in the middle and a designed LED panels each side.

How should I approach that?

The screens will have a very large numbers of pixel each and the LED's have 96 pixels each panel.

Should I create Multi fixtures?

Mostly of the content will be trigged to behave across the whole stage and I was thinking in create a single file for that.

Cheers guys

Davi

HI,

theres no right or wrong for this, but to me, this sounds like a good job for a super screen! ( ie: one big screen surface that you pan and scale media across )

I got it Arran,

So, Lets assume I create a single fixture, instead using the pixel dimension I'm using the size dimension. OK? I create an UV in 1920x1080. It works fine all mapped and running but the middle 1920x1080 monitor is degraded because I had to resize it big time to be able to fit the content inside. Can you understand what I did?
The FPS went down to 8 in this settings.


Now I created the same project using the size dimension but I resized the 3D (instead) until the middle monitor is in 1920x1080 and exported the UV...now with over 7000 pixels wide. Is this the way to achieve that?

i think its going to be easier to look at the project and model files for this, otherwise im just second guessing. can you send them over to support@avolitesmedia.com
