Since end of July 2013 available for download: version 6.1 of our Lighting Application Suite. Here is the link.
One of the main changes is the reworked RDM (Remote Devive Management) subsystem allowing more RDM, not only from e:sscript, but also as Autotext. Use RDM in the Action Pad, use e:script to automate RDM logging or watching. More info? Use the System Manual and Advanced System Manual for the LAS, also available for free download.
Various new RDM commands like GetRdmControllerCount, RdmDriverHasRdmSupport,
RdmPortEnableByController, SendRdmRequestByController, GetRdmResponseCodeDescription, GetRdmSubDeviceCount, GetRdmSubDeviceID etc. See the e:script Reference in the Programmer for details.
There is a new event, RDMEvent, that can be registered. More about events and RDM in the Advanced System Manual.
There are several new Autotext functions for RDM. See the chapter about Autotext and the Action Pad for in the System Manual for details. See also the post about RDM Autotext below.
The Butler PRO is supported as DMX output device. The LCE2 I/O Interface is available as DMX/RDM input and output and as terminal driver. Butler XT2, XT, S2 and PRO have a new RDM Discovery Mode definition. Discovery mode can now be defined as complete, discovery or off.
Blackmagic Intensity Pro (LCE2-fx)
In order to support the capture card Blackmagic Intensity Pro in the LCE2-fx the capture dialog in the Media Player was extended. For every capture device in the dialog the resolution in Hertz is now displayed as well.
The Update Dialog is now just a topmost window and the Programmer will start as usual with the Update Dialog shown on the top.
Trigger Rule Dialog
The Trigger Rule Dialog has a new MIDI Learn button. When the button is pressed, the next MIDI input will be used to configure the trigger rule.
Two new options to the Cuelist Actions have been added: Skip Forward and Skip Backward. The actions behave exactly like the Skip Forward and Skip Backward buttons in the Cuelist Dialog.
The show export log view shows now, which triggers where exported and which could not be exported.
Versatile Masters setup
The Versatile Master configuration dialog now has a MIDI Learn button. The MIDI Learn button will only listen to MIDI control change input (cannot be added to a fader).
LCE2 Page Setup
You can create individual display pages for the LCE2 display. Actions can be connected to every display page. They are available in the “* Custom Menu *” by default. See the chapter Settings for details.
RDM with Butler XT2, XT, S2 and PRO
There is a new RDM Discovery Mode definition available. Discovery mode can now be defined as complete, discovery or off. Complete is the default mode in which all RDM devices are discovered and all RDM parameters and sensors are polled. Discovery means, that the devices are only discovered. So only their RDM unique ID will appear in the RDM Browser. Off means, that RDM communication is enabled if the port is enabled but no discovery communication will be performed. You can sent custom RDM requests per e:script in this mode.
The Sequence Properties dialog has two options now to adjust the amber/white level for
RGBAW, RGBWA or RGBW LEDs.
