When using the Gel Conversion Chart RGB values with the newest Skypanel FW, should I be setting the Color Temperature of the fixture to the Color Temperature listed on the Gel Conversion Chart? Ie. if I am using Gel Conversion Chart “SkyPanel Gel Conversion - 5600K 8 Bit” should my Color Temperature be set to 5600K? I have been getting mixed results. Skypanel is in Mode 24. Thank you.

Hello,

Yes, you should set your white point to be 5600K if you are using RGBW values to match gels, as per the conversion chart. If your results are still strange, I would recommend double checking to make sure that you are in Calibrated RGBW space and not Direct. Direct was the default option prior to FW 4.4.
