Connect M-PC to Vision using Artnet

Postby Edward » Thu Feb 27, 2014 3:03 pm

This post is valid for the following configurations:

Connecting M-PC to Vision 2.3 PC via Art-net.
Connecting M-PC to Vision 4 MAC via Art-net.

NOTE: Currently Martin has no known method of making M-PC broadcast Art-net locally. This guide assumes a dual computer setup.

STEP 1:

Launch M-PC and either start a new show or open an existing file.

STEP 5:

Under Settings, select static and change the M-PC's IP address, this will change your computer's IP address as well. Click Apply. (NOTE: According to Martin support, the IP address of the machine with M-PC running MUST BE in the 2.x.x.x format and Subnet Mask MUST BE 255.0.0.0)

Also note that both computers MUST be in the same subnet. I.E. your vision computer must also have an ip address of 2.x.x.x and a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0.
