  • About my display
    I assist friends in software for their display
  1. Yes, that is what I was assuming. It is what many have allowed in terms of usb mapping. Just curious how used that feature was used, as it was something I have in my E1.31 implementation.
  2. No, I am lets say you have 8000 channels in your display. Normally, Universe 1 would be channels 1-512, 2 would be 513-1024, snd so on. However, you could also map whatever channels you want to those universe say Universe 2 is going to be channels 600-112. Just gives you some flexibility in how you sequence versue how your devices are configured.
  3. Started to migrate my Mac software over to E1.31 (and will probably migrate to the public as well). One of the things I was wondering how useful it would be to have channel mapping. How I define channel mapping is the ability to allocate a contiguous set of 512 channels from a sequence (not necessarily on any boundary), to a given interfaces universe (be it a usb dongle, E1.31 universe, etc). In other words, instead of arbitrarily allocating on fixed 512 byte boundaries the channels to divide up on an E1.31 universe assignments, allow one to allocate the starting channel of their choice to an E1.31 universe. This is useful if your pixel controller does not let you span a universe for a string. (of course, as with any flexibility, it also must be used carefully or can create issues for your network in terms of interpreting channel assignments).
  4. If there is anyone out there running Mnt. Lion OS X, and have a working E1.31 setup (using multicast) that would be willing to beta test some software, please contact me.
  5. At the Virginia mini, I demonstrated some Mac based software for controlling computerized shows. To potentially broaden its use, I was curious how many people interface to their control systems with E1.31 versus USB dongles.
  6. I am terrible with names. I spoke to someone who had the Lynx smartstring arch setup and used Mac's for video editing. I just wanted to keep in touch, so if they could drop me a line at [email protected], would appreciate it.
  7. Had a wonderful time at the mini today. It is always great to see how creative everyone is.
  8. Ok, I got an adaptor for my macbook pro to go from mini dvi to VGA. Hopefully there will be some extra extender cables to interconnect them.
  9. What type of connector does one need to connect to the project? HDMI? DVI?
  10. Any chance there will be a 5V power supply for a few amps handy at the mini?
  11. I hope to make it. If any interest, I can bring a small 2801/2811/2812/GE Color Effect DMX pixel controller I designed/built, a low cost usb dongle, and the software I wrote for the Mac OSX to run and visualize a show (currently sequenced with LOR S3). Just have to get up early enough to drive down from No Va, so probably wouldn't make the lunch.
