On smaller shoots I frequently find my self in scenarios where a sky panel needs to be dimmed up or down manually with the control knob on the head or on the sky panel remote.
For example the intensity needs to smoothly go from 0% to 60% over 2 seconds.
However this always seems to cause problems as the sky panel manual dimming control is not smooth, it's almost impossible to land on the correct percentage or dim smoothly.
I find myself having to control via DMX to over come this, or grab a different head such as an outsight creme source instead, as often we don't have the time to set up the DMX on the run.
I have tried changing the dimming curve modes in the sky panel however this doesn't seem to change the sensitivity of the intensity control knob.
Is there a way to solve this problem?
