Hi all. I’m needing some pointers on sources to read up on Art-Net in order to get some Hue products working with VDMX.
I’ve reviewed the following tutorials but don’t understand some key concepts that I’ll ask about below:
I gather that I’d like to use VDMX as the “Console” for an Art-Net Universe (1) in order to talk to a Phillips Hue bridge communicating directly with instruments.
I’m using the VDMX Cue List Template to try to understand my options for sending color data over Art-Net to the Hue Bridge via a bit of software running on the local-host:
What I don’t get is this:
I assumed Art-Net could run via UDP on the same network interface, but given the prompts from VDMX, it needs to bind to a single ethernet interface, not to be shared with the same as my above software.
Question: Does Art-Net have to run on an exclusive network?
Question 2: Are there particular instructions for sending data from my VDMX console to the Art-Net node running on the same system? This node recognizes and connects with my Hue bulbs, but I’m stuck getting VDMX to talk to the node.
Pardon if I don’t appear to know enough here to ask a more specific question. Casting around for resources to get my head around this.
