How can i see if one fixture type is also working with an other fixture type that is'nt in the fixture library

Postby koenruijgrok » Tue Apr 10, 2018 8:13 pm

Hey,

If i want to work with a fixture that is not in the fixture list, but types like that are (for example, i work with Briteq BTX-Saturn but in the library are only other fixtures of the type Briteq-BTX[something else]), can i connect them eighter way to daslight or do i need to place a request to make an ssl file of my Briteq BTX-Saturn.
And if so, can i use the programmed scenes where i used the Briteq BTX-180 for exemple, for the Briteq BTX-Saturn whithout changing my original programmed scenes?

I hope this makes sense ;)

Regards,

K.

Hello,

Fixture profile will let the software know what DMX channels are used (and by which types of fixture). So if you chose to use one type of fixture only to change it later, I'm afraid the values you will have set for the first fixture will no longer fit the new type of fixture.

This is why it is important to use the right fixture profile directly : if you don't, there is a great risk you'll have to edit all your scenes when changing fixture type.

Therefore I must advise you to edit the right fixture profile before you start editing your scenes. Although, you always can use any fixture profile if you wish to explore you software's features until you receive (or edit by yourself) the right fixture profile.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
TomHat
