FWsim Pro can export DMX data to the following firing systems: Piroshow, Pyromac, Firetek
FWsim Pro can export flamejets as regular firing impulses to FirePioneer and Pyroneo.
We will add DMX support for other systems on request. If your system is not supported, please let us know.
FWsim Pro supports channel and box numbers. You can assign those numbers manually, or let FWsim assign them.
Please note that for the Galaxis firing system, automatic channel assignment is not possible yet.
The channel assignment will be saved in the show file. If you change the show, you have to click “Auto-Assign Channels” again to ensure the correct ordering.
By default, FWsim will refresh the channel assignments whenever you export your show. You can change this behaviour in the preferences.
The channel numbers are displayed right inside the timeline. If a cue is too short, you might not be able to read it. In that case, just hover with the mouse over the cue. Alternatively, you can also zoom further in using the trackbar to the right.
Click on cues, and select the “Export” tab in the sidebar on the right. There, you can enter channels manually.
When you change the channel assignment of a cue manually, a lock will appear next to it. The lock means that these channels will not be changed when you do an automatic channel assignment. This allows you to use manual and automatic channel assignment in conjunction with each other.
Click on a cue and select the “Data Export” tab. Here, you can change the channel assignment behavior of the cue:
In addition to the per-cue settings, there are also settings for the entire show. Open the “Data Export” tab. You can change:
Click “Export” -> “CSV”. You can change the data fields in the CSV file. To do so, click “Tools” -> “Preferences” and open the “FWsim Pro” tab.
CSV data can be easily imported into Excel or other spreadsheet software.
Click “Export” -> “HTML Firing Plan”. As with CSV, you can define which data fields are used in the Preferences.
We can create a custom export plugin for your firing system. Contact us for more information.
