    I'm using an ENTTEC DMXUSB Pro in Beyond Ultimate 4.0. to interface with my projector. I want to add DMX triggers onto a timeline that will play simultaneously with a laser show on an Alesis HD24 but I have no idea how to do that. I've watched countless video tutorials and perused forum threads to no avail. It seems that what I want to accomplish is ultra-specific.

    Create an empty event on the timeline,
    Click on the right side of the screen.

    Scroll to the bottom of the area to the PangoScript tab, and send the DMX trigger from there.

    Thanks for the info.
    I gave incorrect information about the version I'm using for DMX. I'm using Essentials, not Ultimate. I don't have the DMX options available as in your screenshot. Would that be because I'm running Essentials? Also, I'm using build 1090. I'm hesitant to install the update because it caused one of my other copies of Beyond to crash.

    I was able to create DMX triggers using a different method, by dragging and dropping events into cues. Thank-you for your help.

    There are more ways to achieve the same goal, but this is probably the fastest way.
