Arvol, he means to have 16bit support in Arena, which would mean assigning two channels per attribute. Not currently possible but would be very nice!
Yeah, I understand that, But I'm curious to what 16 bit will offer? I know what the differences are between 8 and 16 bit, but I have 6 tours currently out using 8 bit and with their encoders set to "Fine" (they don't even need them set to "Ultra") I haven't had any complaints about the control and amount of steps that are needed to control Resolume.
I guess I should also ask the OP, Is this request for incoming DMX or outgoing DMX?
AFAIK 8bit for incoming is more than enough for what I've had to control.
If you're trying to control X and Y and you don't need to move X to 7,000px but rather maybe 200-800, It would be nice to have the option to set in and out limits on DMX like you can on MIDI. This would reduce the amount of steps and reduce the jumpiness and stutters when moving, since 255 is now spanned across 600 steps, rather than 14,000 steps.
Does this logic make any sense?
