    Hi,

    How do you create a look with each cell on an LED batten a slightly different intensity or even colour to demonstrate pixel mapped fixtures?

    Thanks

    Such control is not possible in Design mode, if that is what you are asking. The only way to simulate this is to create an image with the necessary colours and/or intensities (using MS Paint, Paint .NET, Photoshop, or any other such app), and then apply that image to the LED Wall object you created in WYSIWYG. Please see the sample I attached here for details.

    This is very easy to do in Live mode though: simply connect to console or an LED mapping app (such as the one that comes with the Arkaos media server) and feed the necessary DMX values to the LED Wall object to make its pixels output the colours and intensities you require.

    Ok thanks,

    Would be nice to apply a fan across individual cells of fixtures to create the effect. Maybe one for a future release
