Martin robo scan 518 pro

Beitrag von dutch_anykey » 12.11.2014, 15:40

Hi,

Currently for a project we have four martin robo scan 518's
I used the Roboscan 512 for this, but that one didn't use all the features that the 518 has.
So it was time to have my first attempt at re-writing the ddf for the 518 with the 512 as template.

Wat was missing, or difference between the 512 and 518:
COLOR1:
the 518 has more COLOR1 settings. I had to introduce many more colors (actually the 518 uses steps inbetween)
Here the first challenge started. I added all the extra colors.( I still need to assign them the appropiate color in the DDF tool So PC_DIMMER can work with it) But it was not working, I couldnt see all the colors in the pulldown menu. Later I found out that all the assigned colors should be unique. That helped to get all visible. The other thing is the way the assignments are made in the DDF:
begin
dontrefresh:=true;
set_channel('COLOR1',-1,colorbox.itemindex*8,0);
end;
This is the quickest method, but for the many more colors on the 518 it didnt work, so I adjusted it to:
begin
dontrefresh:=true;
set_channel('COLOR1',-1,colorbox.itemindex*4,0);
end;

This worked better, however that last two channels are not a product of the 4 devision, but are channels 140 - 197 and 198-255
So for this setup not workable. (Because it is related to the colorbox.itemindex in "farbe" box if I understand correctly
Maybe there is a way around this? Or should I just take the time and make the long list with colors by hand and insert them in the config like it is done with GOBO1 for instance)

For now I leave it like this because I don't need the CW and CCW rotation of those last two channels.

Next is the GOBO1 channel:
from the roboscan 512 DDF GOBO1 channels are the same. However in the 518 scanner the values "around" the gobo channel value can make the gobo move CW and CCW. This is not working at the moment.
I introduced another slider that completly useschannel 4, so you can slide trough all gobo's and also the CW and CCW actions.
What I really would have wanted is to still use the GOBO1 pulldown menu, and as an extra a small slider beneat that I can use for that particular Gobo to make it move cw or ccw.
Is that even possible? Maybe there already is another DDF that has this feature so I can have a look how it is done?

Hey Maurice,

that's just some programming. For COLOR1, I suggest a solution like this:

Code: Alles auswählen

begin
  dontrefresh:=true;
  case colorbox.itemindex of
    0..34: set_channel('COLOR1',-1,colorbox.itemindex*4,0);
    35: set_channel('COLOR1',-1,140 + sliderrotation.position,0);
    36: set_channel('COLOR1',-1,255 - sliderrotation.position,0);
  end;
end;
You can add a slider named "sliderrotation" for the rotation speed, with a minvalue of 0 and maxvalue of 57.

For GOBO1, you can combine:

Code: Alles auswählen

var val: Integer;
begin
    dontrefresh:=true;
    case gobobox.itemindex of
    	0: val := 0;
    	1: val := 25;
    	2: val := 76;
    end;
    val := val + goborotationslider.position;
    set_channel('GOBO1',-1,val,0);
end;
Greets,
Ingo

Hi Ingo,

That's great !!!

Are you a programmer perhaps? You always make it look simple.
I really want to do more of this stuff. Nice beginning with this.

Thanks again.
I will send the final version when done.


kind regards,
Maurice
