ADJ Starburst Color Assignment

Post by cgarling »

Hi there,

the color assignments are not correct. Currently its as followed assigned to channels 1 to 6:

Red
Green
Blue
Red
Amber
UV

But the right assignment as described in the manual would be:

Red
Green
Blue
White
Yellow
Violet

I would be happy If you could fix this.

Thanks in advance!

Christian, even if they fix it, you will not get satisfying results with Starburst, as it is a "very tricky" device to trigger from an external effect processor. I can give you reasons why it is but just that: I also use Starburst and I made my life simple. I created just 4 (or 5) Live Edit Presets (mid speed Color Flicker / just White slow rotation / 3 Color mid speed Rotation / fast speed all Color Change & Strobe) and that's it. But you may want to create your own Profile where ROTATION (Ch 9) is then defined as PAN and the Colors should be assigned as separate (6) Beams, as they are indeed separate LEDS and NOT RGB colors. Each Color then has it's own single Beam (1=Red, 2=Green, 3= Blue, 4=White, 5=Yellow, 6=Violet). Additive RGB mixing cannot do that! Then you may be able to select each individual Beam (Color) and have some sort of Move FX (automated Rotation), but that really never worked to my satisfaction. So I've chosen the Live Edit approach.

Hi axell,

thank you for your reply. I defined some similar live edits for another effect fixture. But the assignment of the color channels is obviously wrong and I would appreciate if this would be fixed.

Hopefully there will be some progess, because I want to use the fixture next saturday.

Regards, Christian

I could give you my (working) Starburst Profile?

Thank you! What is the difference to the default one?

it works - also you can (CAN! not must) use Move FX for rotation control via (moderate) Pan values. You have to edit the FIXTURE LIMITS for that, so it doesn't use the full 0 - 255 values, i.e. run full speed left rotation and next second run full speed right rotation, and your Starburst will literally "burst"

OK - for the "right" Color mapping, do the following:
Select (static) Color and only edit the Starburst Group row!
Go to the 1st Color Select page (Single 1-5)
"Shift" Top button of that row (to make it Red). Now in Color Picker select RGBW - at the bottom of screen RED=100%, Green, Blue, White all 0% - confirm (by pressing the blinking button again).
"Shift" button below Red. Now in Color Picker select RGBWAU - at the bottom of screen RGB=0%, White=0%, Amber=100%, UV=0% - confirm
"Shift" button below Orange. Now in Color Picker select RGBW - at the bottom of screen RED=0%, Green=100%, Blue & White 0% - confirm
"Shift" button below Green. Now in Color Picker select RGBW - at the bottom of screen RED & Green=0%, Blue=100%, and White 0% - confirm
"Shift" button below Blue. Now in Color Picker select RGBW - at the bottom of screen RED, Green & Blue00% and White 100% - confirm

Now on 2nd page (Single 6-10) you can have mixed LEDs on: i.e Select "Shift" Top button and select RGBW Red, Green 0%, Blue 100%, White 0% and switch to RGBWAU Amber=100% and UV=0%. THAT is MAGENTA,...if you could MIX Blue & Amber, but Starburst has no RGB LEDs for mixing, only single LEDs, so you Magenta actually gives you Amber & Blue LEDs on. That is why there is no REAL Color fix possible. The fixture simply doesn't support mixed colors.
Next is Yellow (another mixed color!). In RGBW make Red & Green 100% - and Blue and White 0%
Next RGBW = Red, Green, Blue 100%, White 0% and switch to RGBWAU to add UV=100%
Last RGBW = Red, Green, Blue & White all 100%, switch to RGBWAU and add Amber and UV to 100% = all LEDs are turned on

Now you have all possible lightings of Starburst programmed :-)

the color assignments are not correct. Currently its as followed assigned to channels 1 to 6:
This profile was recently updated and I can see the channels are now correct. Note that Yellow is the same as amber and violet is the same as UV. The White is now correct however.
