Three output channels

Original flames of a fireplace are in motion. So the lighting source should be.

The 3 channel “fire” preset of this flickerbox automatically alternates the dim level of each channel the way a real flame would behave – flickering shadows.

For TV effects even the color changes in RGB mode of an LED fixture.

Use different effect gels on the three lamps – the color temperature would change either.

If the object is too far away from the background you will not see flickering shadows, normaly a distance of around 60 cm (2 ft) is ideal.

Transitions

Use every type and size of tungsten lamps or LED.

A result of an effect would look different with the same signal used at different lamp types/sizes, particularly if an LED lamp is used.

“Transitions” adapts effects to the duration of persistence of various types of filaments or to LED lamps. See sample clip: fire effects 

The timing difference between the moment of electrical deactivation and the time of a completely extinguished light depends on the power of the bulb.

Choose the transition mode depending on the connected type and size of lamp (bulb inertia).

Thus any lighting effect looks excellent – with a 10K, a redhead, a standard 60 W bulb, fluoros or LED.

Use “Transitions” for different styles of e.g. fire – from aggressive to smooth.

DMX input

Extend the functionality of the flicker box with a DMX input signal.

We suggest to hook up a simple 6-channel DMX console.

Advanced users use a professional dimmer console for full remote control of the LFX Master DMX.

iPad remote control

This is a preview of the powerful wireless options of the LFX Master DMX.

Use the Luminair App for wireless remote control of the flicker box.

For most easy set-up we will provide the project files of Luminair for Kino Flo LED fixtures, SkyPanel (Gel mode – as shown in the video – and RGB mode) and for different effect scenarios.

These project files including a set-up instruction for the flicker box will be available for free from www.lfxmaster.com soon.
