Hello* - Searched the manual, this forum and elsewhere but can't find a solution..
For the lighting of theater-performances we normally first set up all the different light-settings in scenes (- mostly static with fade-times) which are put in a cue-list and while the performance are triggered with only one button that starts the next scene in the list.
For a new little venue we bought a dvc4 with the daslight4 software. - The idea was to use the standalone feature so that the actor him- or herself without the presence of a lighting technician can proceed through the light-scenes cuelist by using just one ("GO"-)button for the "next scene" funtionality. But not the "Next"-button on the device itself but a more solid little keybord connected to the i/o-ports of the dvc with 4 keys for "Next"-, Previous"-, Blackout- and Reset- (Go to scene 1)-functionalities (..ideally.. -
What I can do so far:
I have an improvised "keyboard" attached to the dry contact ports, with which it is possible to start and stop szenes configured for the port-triggering. -- And: Even the "Next szene" button configured in the preferences menu works.. - Great..
But: This Next-Szene button (over the contact ports..) works only as long as the DVC is linked to the Computer with Daslight running.. - In standalone mode, powered by a powerbank, it is only possible, to start/stop the szenes directly..
Hmm.. This is my main question: Did I overlook the possibility to setup the standalone in a way, that the "Next Szene" can be triggered using a button attached to the dry contact ports..
I would be very happy..
If there are places to look that up/read more indeep descriptions (besige the manual..): I would be glad to hear about..
