Chroma-Q Color Force™ and Color Force II™ Fixtures Do Not Output the Correct Color With ETC Consoles


In HSI modes, Chroma-Q Color Force™ and Color Force II™ fixtures do not output the correct color.

Description/Explanation of Issue

ETC consoles and Chroma-Q fixtures, by default, define hue values differently. Therefore, when using the color picker on an ETC console with a fixture in HSI mode, the color will look incorrect. Color mixing modes such as RGB will work correctly by default.

To get around this issue, Chroma-Q has implemented an ETC compatibility mode for their fixtures, which remaps the hue parameter for compatibility with ETC color pickers.


Consult the documentation for your fixture to enable ETC Compatibility Mode.
