Fixture Creator Tutorial – Moving Head [FreeStyler Wiki]

The freestyller is pulled into the input box and the picture of the fixture is displayed to the right of the name. How to use the DMX What you should do is to program Freestyler and get yourself a nice MIDI controller that freestyoer will dedicate to control your lights via Freestyler.

This could be used to define the moving head pointing to a mirror ball or a person on stage. Inside Freestyler itself you can assign a fader to one single function 1 to 1 programming With VirtualDj and it’s scripting abilities I was able to use the same slider control different functions by using variables and other conditional queries. Also it allows me to create a pretty much dynamic show, where nothing seems the same day after day When you do that you might notice the field you just defined jump to the bottom of the list, do not worry about it, it is just doing its auto sort.

There is One page that answers almost all your questions, so take a look. It leaves behind the description though once it has been entered. On your scenario, if a “new” track has no FS data stored in it, Freestyler will keep running your lights with the last CUE activated by the previous track.

Problems with using this fixture as an example is I do not have one, so it is untested and the manual does not show what fdeestyler actual gobos are, so I have used numbers for them instead. Now that has been explained a bit we can enter the values for the Pan and Tilt channels as shown freetyler the picture below. Hm is it the APC40? So hopefully you have obtained a copy of the manual and have located the DMX Protocol within it.

So that uses channel 8 and has 7 gobos on it.

This, with the addition of a special PAD page an extended version of the one available for download here and some action POI’s allows me to fully control Freestyler and my show from within VirtualDj without having to bring Freestyler window on front the entire night.

So, stop questioning whether a computer based solution with or without an external controller attached is better than a stand-alone hardware only solution.

Whenever I create a new fixture I always export it at freestyle same time to ensure I have a backup copy to re-install if and when I upgrade FreeStyler I always overwrite existing fixtures.

Here I have told the Fixture Creator that it has its colour channel on 7 and that we have 18 colours. I’m new, Where do I start? The best “stand alone” lighting desks out there are Martin’s M series.

This is fine as that is what its primary use is. The same principle applies to the Tilt channel as well. Yes I know this is a gobo wheel so what are colours doing on there.

As I do not have the actual fixture and the manual does not define what the gobos look like I have used numbers 1, 2 and 3 and the colours it mentions in the manual. Hopefully this tutorial will enable new users of the FreeStyler Fixture Creator to gain enough information to be able to create their own fixtures and maybe give some other users some extra information on the Fixture Creator. The grey input box to the right of the fixture picture is a tktorial box.

For a start it is good to know how to Select your DMX device, Patching Fixtures and Creating your own sequences and knowing how to play them back. When tutoeial are adding values you can use any of the empty rows as the Fixture Freestyleer now automatically sorts them into numerical order.

You should be presented with a screen similar to the one below. I have scrolled the freestyleer to the right so I can see the channel 13 column and the picture column as well. And the more basic light effects can be run either in automode, or through my manual DMX control. Any advice how to move on is appreciated.
