I have been doing this for 2 year; you can see my first year display at www.austinchristmas.org. I have 2 REN64s (using 90 channels) controlled by Vixen.
I understand how the main DMX controller/dimmer system works, however I don't understand how I would make it control node based RGB LEDs. I have been following the work done at www.response-box.com/rgb however I don't understand what I need to setup a system to do this.
Do I need to have DMX dimmers? Do I need to have a USB to DMX converter? Do I need to have some other controller to interface between Vixen and the RGB nodes?
I am not a dumb guy but I just don't understand what I need for Vixen to control the RGB LED nodes.
I have searched and read everything I can find however I still don't get it.
Can someone help me understand it?
