Fixture Settings Widget

Table of contents:  


The Fixture Settings widget is where you configure how fixtures interact with Trackables in a specific chapter. Fixture Settings is separated into four tab sections: Basic, Offset, Auto Spot and Zones.  The tabs will be explained in detail in the following pages.

You can select a single fixture, or multiple fixtures in the center pane of Edit View to have Fixture Settings display the collective settings. In multi-fixture selection, there is always an 'active' fixture, which displays its current settings in the Fixture Settings widget. The active fixture is indicated by the name and spot ID of the fixture at the top of the Fixture Settings widget.

When you select multiple fixtures, any differences between fixtures will be highlighted in blue. For example: Spot 1 has a zoom setting of 1m and Spot 2 has a zoom setting of 2m. When you select both fixtures, the text box will highlight blue to indicate a difference between the two selected fixtures.

If you select a conventional fixture and a moving fixture at the same time, the settings of the active fixture will be displayed. Changes to moving fixture settings that do not apply to conventional fixtures will be ignored during multi-select for incompatible fixtures.
