Sunlite Suite 2
Palettes are very powerful when programming lighting. Imagine you are on a tour and you get to a different venue and realize you need to move your drums 2 meters backwards, you now have to change each of your scenes. This can be time consuming! With Sunlite Suite 2, we can set up Palettes. These can be useful if you need to update a set of scenes at once.
New Palettes can be created here. If you want to create a preset palette such as a gobo or a color wheel color select “New Palette per fixture”. If you want to create a palette with a variable preset such as pan/tilt, a color mixing color, a dimmer, iris or zoom preset you will need to select “New Generic Palette Per Fixture”. See the next topic for more information on the different palette types.
Use the global effects panel to adjust your fixtures or right click and select a preset below (not available when using Generic Palettes). Hold shift to assign the same preset to all selected fixtures.
To delete the preset from the pallet, click the cross.
New palette groups can be created here.
Palettes can be applied to scenes within the button editor. Drag the palette onto the desired channel and hold ctrl to select multiple channels
Palettes can also be dragged directly onto a fixture, an EasyStep step or an EasyTime constant level block.
For information on how to use a palette inside a dynamic effect, see the advanced palettes topic.
