  • Settings-Window has scaling issues

    Check if the application has the permission to scale the window. This should only be a problem on linux.

  • Flickering DMX output

    If the DMX output flickers, try to increase the break time. This can happen if the DMX-Interface is not able to handle the data rate.

    If multiple senders are sending data to the same universe, the data might interfere. Try to set the controller option to a specific sender.

  • Anything else?

    Please open an issue if you encounter any other problems.


Make sure to install the dependencies listed in dependencies.txt before building the project.
