Hi there @valerieoliveiro,
Most Izzy users use an Enttec DMX USB Pro giving you 512 channels of data to work with, and if you have the drivers correctly installed it works quite well ;)
1) How to setup the hardware
You will need the following hardware :
Dimmerpacks DMX cable (Check the input of the Dimmerpacks and the output pins of your Enttec. If they are the same you are golden, if not you need an plug to convert 5 to 3 or the other way around) Enttec DMX USB Pro Izzy on a Windows / Mac computer
Set the hardware address of the dimmerpack (DMX start), some dimmers have an little menu for that, others have dipswitches. Look up the manual and sometimes a power reset is required for the settings to take effect (learned this the hard way)
Connect the computer to the Enttec using the USB cable provided. Connect the DMX cable to the OUTPUT of the Enttec and connect the other end of the cable to the INPUT of the Dimmerpack (not the output or thru)
2) Are there particular configurations in Isadora? Is there a patch or an actor that I should be aware of?
Look in the plugin library here https://troikatronix.com/plugi...
3) Will this help me control fading and looping of all these lighting channels? How? If not, what will I be able to control?
Yeah, with above actor you can output the desired data, what is required from you is that you create the patch to make the values loop. You can do this quite easily with Enveloppe Generators++ and sequential triggers.
