Lightrider via Artnet Using DVC Fun

Postby h0nk87 » Sat Mar 27, 2021 8:00 pm

Hi all,

I'm currently struggling to run Lightrider via Artnet using my dvc4 fun. I purchased the Lightrider upgrade as well as the Artnet Feature in the dmx soft store. Here is my Setup:

- DVC4 Fun connected to Windows PC via USB
- Daslight 4 running with a virtual device as Artnet Node (as described in the manual and the Video tutorial on Youtube posted by Simon)
- Android Tablet with Lightrider running in the same WiFi network as the PC

No matter what I try, Lightrider does not recognize the DVC4 as Artnet device. Also adding the IP address manually does not work. Is there any point that I'm missing to make it work? I would really appreciate any help on that issue.

Thanks in advance and best regards,

I'm no sure I quite understand what you're trying to achieve here. But here are a few pointers:

- Your DVC interface can only be used by ONE app at a time. Meaning Daslight4 and LightRider can not use it at the same time. It'll be either one or the other.

- A DVC interface is not an artnet node. It won't be recognized as one by your LightRider app. It's a DMX device which can give LightRider "permission" to communicate with some ArtNet device on your network.

- Creating a virtual artnet device in Daslight4 will only inform Daslight4 of the potential presence of an ArtNet node at a given IP address. It's allowing Daslight4 to use a node it wasn't able to find automatically on the network.

Hope this helps.
