The Visualizer's Channel Settings dialog

 

Name

 

The name of the channel.  Required.

 

Select Reference Channel (...)

 

If you have loaded one or more reference files, this button is available.  Pressing it and selecting a channel from the dropdown will assign the loaded parameters to this Visualizer channel.

 

Select RGB Reference Channel (RGB)

 

If you have loaded one or more reference files, if the file contained RGB channels, and if you specified that this fixture use RGB channels, then this button is available.  Pressing it and selecting a channel from the dropdown will assign the loaded parameters to this Visualizer channel.  The system will then prompt you if you also wish to assign the other two related channels.

 

Device Type

 

Select the device type this Visualizer channel is emulating.

 

Network/Unit/Circuit

 

These fields should match your sequence's channel for this particular fixture.  One or more of these fields may not be available depending on the type of device you selected above.

 

Special Type

 

Certain fixture and channel types can use special effects.  Currently the Visualizer supports two special types: Strobe and Multi Color.  A strobe channel emulates a "strobe light" - bulbs on this channel will flash quickly on and off randomly.  A multi color channel will display up to five bulbs when a channel is turned on.  You cannot individually control the bulbs.

 

Special Parameter

 

If you selected a special type above, this field allows you to specify any needed additional parameters.  If you selected "Strobe" above, this field allows you to set the "speed" of the strobe effect.  If you selected "Multi Color", you will be able to choose the number of colors, and the actual colors themselves.

 

LED

 

If the physical lights attached to this channel are LEDs, select this checkbox.  Selecting this will allow Superstar to more correctly sequence your stage.
