Have no fear! In the videos below, I show you all the basics that you need in order to thrive on the Obey 40! Today, I want to run you through the basic overview of the Chauvet Obey 40 console. This console here is one that I really like for people who are just getting started with some basic lighting. You just really need some basic control of twelve unique fixtures, which are over here, and to be able to create some basic scenes and maybe some chases and play them back.
Programming is really cool because you can select different fixtures, brings things up on the faders, and then hit record and put it in a scene. You can have a whole lot of different scenes programmed for different songs with your lighting rig in there and play them back.
You can put them into an auto-play mode and now all of a sudden play them through. It was going very slow but you can slow down the fade time a little. Plus, another feature I like about this console, it has an easy to access blackout button.
Hit that, boom, blackout, come back in, ready with the music. You can always just turn the scenes on and chases on or off like that. Turn scenes on or off. You can always blackout at the end of your show. Hope that makes sense. Pretty simple. You should be able to see it on the camera. That indicates that you are now in program mode. Select our first fixture. Dial in some red. It just helps clean up your programming.
Just got to press it quick. Then we want to press our first scene. Now, you probably saw the display there. It flashed, and some of the indicators flashed on the console. The lights flashed. Bring it down. Scene 3. Clear everybody out. Clear that. Label these on your console so you know what they are. Then you notice, see there?
I pressed scene 5. You can select another scene. You can come back in that other scene. Today, I want to show you how to record chases on the Chauvet Obey 40 Controller.
To record chases we get back into program mode like scenes. Then scene 2, add it, scene 3, add it. You could do this in any order you want. Assuming we did everything right, which I think we did, we get out of program mode, hit that Blackout button. Now we can press our chase there. Now you see it going through steps. Our other one, is fade time. Every second, it goes to the next key and fades for a second. That goes all the way from zero seconds to 30 seconds. The other way you can play back chase, is you can press tap-sync.
Those are the two main options for playing back chases, and I hope you enjoyed it, I hope this helps. Click the link below to once again see that first video if you missed it. What is DMX Polarity? Hi Guys — Welcome back! It may have gotten accidentally flipped.
Why did they do that? Their console to work with their lights. You just have as little barrel adapter that switches the wiring, or a console like this, the Obey 40 or others, you just have that polarity switch that you flip, and then all of a sudden everything is right with the world. Keep sending them in to me. I love to hear it. Like Our Free Content? Related Posts.
