I was hoping it may have been something like that, however as you can see from my screen shot below, I can only see the “Virtual Box” connection and not my “Scruffy 5G” wireless. And definitely no radio buttons either for selection.
When I disable the Virtual Box connection the wireless becomes the automatic default. So at least I know I can prove that and artnet is coming in from my ipad (photon) on Wifi when one of the connections is disabled.
I’m currently using the trial version should this matter?
As an FYI I’m looking to use LightAct mostly as a Bridge for Virutal Sets in UE4 and the Grandma Console, plus as an additional sequencer benefits and triggering from light act via spout to UE4 will also play a part. Previously I was quite heavily invested in D3/Disguise as my workflow, but no live events due to COVID19 has forced our hand to open our eyes at other options.
Hmm, that’s weird. It’s not a limitation of Free licence, so at the moment I don’t know how come you don’t have a radio button . Also, I am assuming the listed IP (xxx.yyy.0.1) is the router’s IP, not yours, correct? It should list your IP.
It looks like it’s something in your network settings that’s causing this. I know it sounds like I am trying to shift the blame, so to speak, but that’s my best guess at the moment
I would be interested to find out if you experience the same behaviour using a run-of-the-mill network setup such as a standard LAN connection and, say, a WiFi adapter.
Similarly to you, COVID has forced us to work from home, so atm I don’t have any means to run some tests on double NIC on a PC right now. I should be able to do that on Monday though.
I am very happy that you are considering LightAct for your workflow. FYI: there is some massive licencing upgrade coming your way in about 1 week that should be interesting to you.
Let me know what you find out with other network setups if you have the time.
I had the chance to look into this today. So first things first:
You don’t see a radio button, because the socket is running. That means that you are sending out Art-Net data from one of Art-Net nodes in the Devices window. If you uncheck their Streaming checkboxes the radio button should appear.
Alternatively, if you start a blank LightAct project (just open one of the sample projects) and open the eDMX tab in the Preferences window, you should see a radio button even if there is just one.
So please start one of the simple Sample projects from the Welcome window, go to the eDMX tab and let me know if you still see just one network interface.
