Two patches that allows you to interact with Art-Net devices.
Version: 1.1Kineme Art-Net Tools provides two patches for interacting with Art-Net devices:
License: Free To Try $10.00
Operating System: Mac OS X
· ArtDmx Sender --- Broadcasts a structure of DMX values to the specified IP Network, Sub-Net, and Universe.
· ArtDmx Receiver --- Receives broadcast DMX values from the specified Sub-Net and Universe.
Both patches work with either raw DMX values (ranging from 0 to 511) or normalized values (fractional, ranging from 0.0 to 1.0), depending on whether the "Normalized Values" checkbox is set.
Notes on the ArtDmx Sender:
In order to send ArtDmx packets, one of your computer's network interfaces must be set to a valid Art-Net IP Subnet. These are as follows:
184.108.40.206/8 (network 220.127.116.11, netmask 255.0.0.0, broadcast 18.104.22.168)
10.0.0.0/8 (network 10.0.0.0, netmask 255.0.0.0, broadcast 10.255.255.255)
If none of your computer's network interfaces are set accordingly, Art-Net packets will not be sent.
See the included ArtNet-SendReceive.qtz to test whether your network settings are correct --- if they are, both the top number and bottom number displayed should match approximately (there will be a delay of a frame or so).
The Channel Structure input is a keyed structure --- the structure's key represents the output ArtDmx channel (0 to 511), and the structure's value represents the value to send to that channel (0 to 255).
You can also specify comma-delimited keys, representing a 16bit composite channel consisting of two arbitrary 8bit channels. For example, you could specify a key of "42,79" --- "42" is the channel to which the HSB is sent, and "79" is the channel to which the LSB is sent.
The ArtDmx Sender patch has the option to send Short Frames. When enabled, complete DMX512 frames will be sent at start and every 4 seconds, and short frames will be sent in the interim. This is more efficient, but may be incompatible with some hardware.
If it is disabled, it will send complete DMX512 frames.
