HELP! whole show dims out and in every 2 mins
#1
Exclamation 
I'm sure its a simple setting i'm not seeing, but on exactly 2 mins all the light fixtures dim out and back again for about 3 secs.

Any help would be appriciated.

Cheers

Could you tell me about your setup? Do you have a VST, MIDI control on EMU? Is Autorun turned on within the Program page?

If you start a new show with no external inputs (VST/MIDI), does the fade to black still happening?

Cheers for getting back!!!

So we have a super simple set up - we just want to control our DMX lights for a Virtual Production Studio (Chromakey) studio - this allows us to light the foreground and green screen separately.

we have 6 bi-colour (bright/warmth) and 5 six channel strip lights (RGBWA+UV)

Through and ENTTEC DMX > USB to a laptop.

No strobe, automated fades or PTZ heads involved

Hey SamP

So the set up we have is using DMX to remote lighting on a Virtual Production stage - using Chromakey (green).

We use it to balance the foreground and background to ensure we capture a good key for real-time composition.

I've had to use generic controls for the panel LED lights (bi colour - brightness/warmth) as there is no indication what the manufacturer is.

The 6ch strip light are the other one we use.

This is actually because you're in "DEMO" mode. I have noticed the same thing. At the very top of EMU's screen there is a banner and every so often "DEMO" will flash for a few seconds and the lights black out briefly. This does not happen if you get a license key. I am thinking that's ENTTECC's way of keeping people from using this software for free in the future?

I am having the same issue.

My setup is a DMXIS USB controller using EMU to control the DMX programming directly (no midi or vsts)

I am having the same issue.  Just using DMXIS for DMX, no macros or VSTs.
