Sample film clips
|Fire 3 channels|
|flickering shadows using 3x LED fixture|
|… with tungsten||flickering shadows using 3x tungsten lamp & dimmer pack|
|Fire 1 channel||single channel effects are fine if background is not close to object|
|Candle||for LED choose GEL/Kelvin|
Use lamp with small surface of omitted light, e.g. household type bulb or small LED fixture.
|TV – RGB||Composition of “cuts” and “pans” simulates a lighting effect of a TV.|
Create RGB effects with shifting colors with a LED fixture. Improve color selection with an external 6-channel DMX console for separate RGB tuning connected @ DMX IN
|TV 1 channel||soon||With LED choose fixed kelvin value for single channel TV effect, e.g. 6000 Kelvin|
|Welding||for LED choose GEL, kelvin, green/magenta.|
Also use as a short-circuit effect.
|„broken“ fluoro||Effect of a not properly working fluorescent tube made for LED fixtures.|
Adjust kelvin with a fixed DMX channel for LED fixtures as shown in the video sample
|Strobe||soon||Simulates symmetric flashes. Ideal for effects of a neon sign up to strobe light.|
High range of pulse speed settings
Add an offset brightness with “MIN DIM” to avoid setting an additional fill light.
The most easy way to link a device is a device preset. It takes seconds for this flicker box.
There is a bunch of pre-programmed settings for devices e.g. for all the LED products of Kino Flo and most of Arri´s LED range.
Simply select a device from a list, the LFX Master DMX will then display all required settings for the gear.
Because of the option to manually set-up DMX channels as well there is virtually no limit to get any – most likely a LED fixture – gear working.
Use the LFX Master DMX as an inline device in an existing DMX universe or control LED fixtures, dimmer packs or fluoros out of the box.
Please see the list of device presets in the specs.
This short video shows how to apply a device preset in practice.
Three output channels
Original flames of a fireplace “dance” around.
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 with three channels even the color changes in RGB mode.
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.
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.
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.
