Press ENTER twice at any point in the Run menu.
ATTENTION! If CompuPack was set to run a scene after losing the
DMX signal, you must clear the scene when DMX reception is
restored.
DMX trigger
Either scenes or sequences can activated through a DMX trigger. DMX
channel 1 triggers scene 1, DMX channel 2 triggers scene 2, and so on, up to 50
scenes. When a scene or sequence is active, external input (from DMX or
Ethernet) are ignored.
When DMX triggering is enabled:
„
A scene or sequence is activated if the input value for the matching
dimmer rises to more than 5%.
„
The scene or sequence stops when the input value falls below 5%.
To run scenes or sequences via DMX triggers
Enable DMX trigger seq in the Setup menu ` General tab.
