    Question 3.6.u3 Color Handling or Dimming Curve Issue

    I've upgraded to 3.6.u3 and migrated all my sequences from version 6 to 7.

    When I play my test sequence that cycles through all channels, my green LED stings are barely on/visible even though they are set to 100% intensity in the sequence. Even among the green strings the intensity is not consistent.

    I run color handling and a dimming curve on all like so...

    Only the green C5 bulbs seem affected.

    I had a similar issue last year and had to re-patch all the affected color/strings/channels. My display is relatively small so I could re-patch again .

    What could be the snafu?

    Did you check the setup of the green dimming curve? Is it what you expect it to be?

    I had similar issues for all my PULSE effect on DMX. Needed to clear all filters and re-patch those points.

    Yes it appears correct. I'll load my dimming curve Profile and run some measurements just to be sure.

    This years display is a duplicate of last years' so there should be no changes necessary.

    If I delete the dimming curve the green strings work.

    I setup the red and white dimming curves the same way and they work.

    I created a new from scratch green dimming curve and the issue still exists. tried a curve from 2 years ago, no luck.

    Could there be something about green color handling in combination with dimming curves?

    There's a bug related to the dimming curves being after the color breakdown filter. It's been fixed yesterday and is in the latest dev build.

    Great, I am interested to see if it solves your issue as well. If not I would like to see the profile so I can figure out what is going on as well.

    Jeff,

    Unfortunately the latest dev build did not work. It did something completely different. Instead of cycling red, green, white it would cycle red, red&green, white or something like that.

    So what I did was load the dev build (#499) I was running last year and it seems to work. If I have no issues I think I'll just finish the year out with this build.

    I created an account on the bug reporting site. Is there an FTP upload feature to the site?

    anyway, gota go drop a bird in the oven...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Correction: I've reverted back to version 3.5.u4

    I hope you opened an old version of your profile with the older build. You should never open a profile in an older version. Unpredictable results can happen. And some data will likely be lost.

    There's no FTP for the bug system. Just the upload feature in the ticket. You generally can't upload a whole profile there due to file size limits. If you want to send something bigger than about 40mb, you need to upload it to a cloud drive of some sort and share the link in the ticket.
