Step by step instruction how to trigger a ETC lighting console using OSC on a network via QLab. Don’t panic!!!!
The Cue Blog
A Podcast about Control. We Go To Eleven.
How to setup a ETC Net 3 ACN Gateway to be a DMX input, so you can use your Mac or PC as a lighting board and plug into a available Node.
So thrilled to see Claude Heinz of lx.claudeheintzdesign.com has been listening to the podcast.
The Cue podcast has a number of interesting discussions. One of them on the advantages/disadvantages of TCP vs UDP led, eventually, to the latest build of LXConsole supporting OSC send/receive using TCP.
Makes me so happy to see that you are out there.
I was inspired after our last podcast with Sooner Routhier and had a look at some of the lights she is using. WOW.
Strap in, play full screen and crank up the audio.
You only need 49 of them. A mere $80,000 and I bet you can get free shipping.
Here is another video tutorial on QLab video masking. This was requested by one of our users. You can see it here.
Editing a Podcast is more work than I imagined. Not just are you bringing your team together and recording the content, you then have to go in and have a hard look at what you have, how to present it and how much you want to tweak it.
I have found, I can’t stand hearing our unconscious verbal stumbling. We all do it, and it infects our daily speech. I never heard it before to be honest, but now that I have to edit out hundreds of times per episode, I am taking my crusade to the people.
It is a under appreciated skill to speak fluidly and continuously and intelligently on a subject without inserting the “and yum”, “you know”, “yes….no”, “kinda like” verbal salad we sprinkle in every sentence.
The solution? Practice. Record yourself. Don’t be in a rush. It is much better to just pause for a moment instead of filling in the moment with a “piece of lettuce”. The people we have had on the show, with the fewest of these, are professors and people who speak in front of others everyday. I also find, once you hit someones sweet spot (something they know a lot about and are passionate about) their verbal salad disappears.
To be fair, even though I am painfully aware of this, I still do it. Normally it’s when I am trying to move the conversation from one conversation to another and am not 100% sure of where I am even going.
So lets all try to take a breath, let the silence in. We will listen. Goodbye “and ummmm”, you will not be missed.
We just loaded a new tutorial on our series on QLab. You can check it out on our YouTube Channel.
Over 200 edits to remove the “and ums” and “you knows”. I am the worst offender!!!!
