I've been using Quickshow for about a year for a single laser and I'm going to start controlling DMX lighting with it as well. I'm trying to figure out if it would make more sense to control everything via something like the APC mini in QS or to run everything from a hardware DMX controller and trigger laser cues in QS from there. Here's my questions... 1. I see that there is mapping for the APC mini that looks great for running a projector live in QS. Is it also possible to use it to control DMX lights (channel intensity, etc.) through QS? I'd prefer to go that route, but I wasn't sure what it's capabilities were for setting up and running a DMX show. With the laser, I usually prebuild everything and only need to trigger cues during a show, so having all of the control over the different attributes of the projection don't really matter to me in a hardware controller. 2. If I was to use a DMX controller, would I still be able to set up all of the DMX in QS and just use the controller as a hardware interface or would all of the lighting have to be run solely by the hardware controller? I know I can trigger cues in QS with it, but if I can't use the faders and joystick to control the lighting when setting up those cues, then it's not as attractive to me. Basically my idea situation is hardware control of all of the attributes of the lighting, but having everything programmed in and run through Quickshow. Any answers to my questions and tips on how to do this best are appreciated. Thanks! Joey Oh also, my intended lighting set up for the near term would be two moving heads and 8 par cans run off of two dmx dimmers.
