I just made this diagram of how to make the cable to synch Vortex to EDP. I was a bit pleased with the result, I like it when I make something in Maya in an hour… it makes me realise what I have learnt. Also I rendered this in mental ray, which Ive never done before either, using the global illumination thingy…
The component values are.
Electrolytic Capacitor, 2 microfarads, 6.3V(or more)
D1 Diode, 1N4148 (or similar)
Just for the record, this comes from Andy Butlers excellent Lexicon
