Smooth pan tilt motion with 16 bit fixtures

Postby muscanto » 16 January 2019, 03:19

I have some fixtures with 16 bit pan/tilt ability. In generator, when I slow the fixture movements way down, they become jerky. Other software doesn't seem to have this issue. Is there a setting that I can change to improve this? I have a pan/tilt speed channel but it does not seem to improve the issue. It seems that the software is sending out motions in 8 bit, but I'm not certain.

Any advice or tips?

When the following channels are declared "pan, tilt, upan, utilt", the 16 bits movement is handled everywhere in the software.

The problem usually comes from the "pan/tilt speed" channel. With some Chinese dmx fixtures, it does not work very well.
Please note also that this channel needs to be re-adjusted, according to the different required speeds within the scene.

We suggest you to make some tests in the tab Steps. Then you will clearly identify the problems.
