[Feature Request] Dimer all channel mask as in ESA2

Post by Serhioromano » Sun Mar 31, 2019 5:05 am

When I tried ESA PRO I was so excited, mainly because it does not break my scene every time I save it and allow at any time come pack and edit it. That is important for me because i have to do A LOT of adjustments to fit it perfectly. And in ESA2 every time I have to recreate scene and regenerate it. In ESA PRO, I just edit it, change some timing settings and that s it.

But later I've discovered very serious limitation which force me again to use ESA2.

I am animating dry fountain with valves. So I have 2 rects one is light (rgbw) for every nozzle and other single channel valve. To operate with valves I use curve effect. In ESA2 I could apply to light color matrix and for the same group of fixtures curve effect as dimmer all. Absolutely the same curve effect for valves channels. In result I get light that is highlight nozzle only when valve is open and at the same time it has some matrix effect.

But in ESA PRo curve effect only have 3 channels to set and there is no Dimmer all or anything like this. SO I cannot apply this technique.

Would be nice if I could in ESA PRO2 or even next version of ESA PRO.

Hi there,

Thank you for your feedback. I would like to check if this is possible in ESA Pro 2 (early alpha) as we are no longer updating ESA Pro v1.

I am sorry I do not quite understand the setup. Could you explain this with some screenshots and/or an .xep file?

Kind Regards,

Nick.

I've attached example project and XEP.

First 5 fixtures RGBW light, that highlights every fountain nozzle. Next 5 fixtures are single channel that will be used to control nozzle valve.

The main idea is that although I applied rainbow effect for light fixtures, works only that fixture where nozzle is opened (white). I made it by applying curve effect absolutely identical for both groups for dimming all.
