5.9. Camera Patch

 
After patching the camera, you can control the camera functions with an external console or ONBOARD CONTROL.
To control the camera, you need a patch in the editor and settings on the HOME screen.
 
 
1. In the DMX editor, right-click on the 3D compass to open the Room menu.
2. To control the camera with an external console, click the DMX control In button. To control with ONBOARD CONTROL, click the "Out" button.
3. The patch screen will open, so patch to any universe address. This completes the settings in the DMX editor.
4. Open the Room menu on the HOME screen and click the "In" button of DMX control. The button will be highlighted and the camera control will switch to the external signal set in the patch.
Camera control can be canceled by canceling DMX control in the Room menu or by performing some camera operation on the L8.
NOTE > A .3d Camera device fixture driver is available in the No_3D category for camera control with ONBOARD CONTROL.
