    RGBY LED Sticks...

    by FRUEH_J » Thu Aug 08, 2013 5:56 pm

    Hi everybody,

    we are using the eurolight RGBY Led Sticks. Is there a possibility to drive them correctly via Red-Green-Blue-Yellow? There is only RGBL or RGBW in MadMapper.

    If I'm not wrong it's RGB+Amber. I suppose the "amber" is there because RGB cannot produce Amber. So a software cannot automatically feed the amber channel. But you can already handle that one from MadMapper, but you have to choose what you want to send in the amber channel:
    - Create a RGB fixture with a channel offset of "1", it will let the amber channel empty
    - Create a L fixture with a channel offset of "3", it will feed only the amber channel
    For the patching: if you have a 6x6 RGBA fixture patched on channel 1,
    - patch the RGB 6x6 (with channel offset=1) on channel 1
    - patch the L 6x6 (with channel offset=3) on channel 4

    Then you can feed the amber channel with a visual in the UVs and the RGB with something else. If you don't have any use of the amber, just patch a RGB fixture with a channel offset=1 and you can control it like a RGB fixture. The amber should keep on zero.
