    Hi!

    Is there a way to smooth midi values? Example.: if you are moving the output with the x and y value by a fader is not very smooth. Is there a way to make it look good?

    Regards,
    Roger

    My first guess would be that the limit involves the midi standard itself.
    Motion of a knob or slider only gets 128 steps of resolution in midi, from 0 to 127. DMX is double that, 0 to 255.
    An ILDA display frame has 65536 degrees of resolution. This fine resolution allows very smooth movement. I have run into this limit myself, and my guess is that the only alternative would be to switch to dmx control for movement in order to double your resolution.
