Sunlite Suite 2
Sunlite Suite 2 has many advanced patching capabilities. These can be found on the patch tab within the page settings window.
The patch of a channel can be modified by clicking in the patch area.
Click here to set up a new patch.
The output channel and universe can be set on the left and the minimum and maximum amplitude can be set to scale channel values down. Setting the minimum to 255 and the maximum to 0 will invert the channel. This can be useful when using unusual fixtures whereby the dimmer is at 100% when the channel is at 0.
It is possible to limit the highest pan and tilt value of a fixture. This is useful if you have a fixture in the corner of a room and you don't want the fixture to point at the wall. It can also be used to calibrate a fixtures moving sequences if not programmed with palettes.
-The pan tilt dialog can be opened by clicking here(1)
-Select your fixtures, then adjust the size of the square on the right
-Use the target to move the fixtures around the room, notice a red line is drawn to help you resize the square
-You can view your fixtures graphically by deselecting "List View"
-This dialog can also be an effective way to check if the lights are positioned correctly within the fixtures window by checking the "Solo" radio button
