The only updates to Artist 2 will be bug fixes only. There are no known issues that we are working on at present. However, we will continue to support Artist 2 users.
Artist 3 is now in the same state in that there are no major development planned.
ShowCAD 2011 is the development working title for the latest developments of our software.

Last update has been some time now, just wondering if we are going to see anymore updates for version 2? I'm working on building a new pc, when it's up and running I will purchase Artist 3. However at home I will be using artist 2 for awhile longer, can't afford to purchase artist 3 for my personal system.

Used a custom roll to get them up and running, based on the dmx info that was sent with the fixtures, but it does not allow any effects engine, so I have 4 or 5 sliders as just a soft patch im not infront of the pc at the moment, but the problem is RGB is not RGB its RBG so all of the templates are RGB LOL

im not sure micks link is relevant, its more for fixtures that have multiple cells of RGB and then a master controller..it seems that these fixtures just have 2 parameters of dimmer and strobe speed or something...that can be added to the template along with a RGB colour mix dimmer and still gain access to all the effects engines.

what template did you use for your units, did you 'roll' it yourself? or is it one of the existing LED par cans in there?

sound suspiciously like the parameters are set wrong for the template...what are you seeing while trying to control them?




Many manufactures produce light battens that have a group of master control channels and consecutive RGB channels in 3 channels groups. These fixtures might have 4, 8, 16 or any number of RGB groups.How should you create a template for these fixtures?<br/><br/>The best practice is to define the Master Control channels as a seperate fixture within Artist. The ShowCAD Template file contains many of these Master Control group templates for various fixtures. You can then use the Simple Types/Colour Mix Dimmer template for the RGB groups. For example, if you have 16 x RGB battens with 16 RGB groups in each you will then create a Fixture group with 16 Master Control Fixtures and a Fixture group with 256 Colour Mix Dimmer fixtures.<br/><br/>The reason for this is that is gives you maximum use of the Effect generator in Artist since the Master control channels are defined in another fixture group. Now when you go to the RGB Fixture Group the effects will give you all the powerful effects you were hoping for.

Hi,
I'm a very occasional light user of just one system, Artist with the basic USB interface.
Iwork as a technician in a school, mainly computers but haveresponsibility for all the AV, which also includes technical theatre. Ilight a couple of school productions per year, one is usually amusical, and often use Artist for lighting control.
We also have aFashion show and numerous other talent shows, discos that type ofthing, again I often use Artist to drive the lighting.
It's notsomething the kids use or is used by the drama department, it's a toolI have in my personal arsenal, as it's simple to set up, takes littlespace and I'm more confident programming Artist than a traditionalboard, although purists would prefer a traditional desk for many veryvalid reasons, for me Artist gets the job done!

Simon
