The fixtures patch
The Editor screen is the place where you will have to patch your fixtures. This is the first thing to do to create your show. Click on the "Add fixtures(s)" button from the toolbar to open the "Patch manager" window.
Here is the procedure to add new fixtures:
- select the profile from the left-side manufacturer list
- select the DMX universe
- enter the first DMX channel (address of the 1st fixture)
- enter the number of devices
- validate by clicking on the "Patch" button
There is a different method to add a fixture, you can directly drag&drop the profile to the grid. Then, you can right-click with your mouse on the fixture and select "Duplicate" from the menu to add more devices (using the same profile).
Once the patch is ready, you will need to create and setup the zones (areas). The next chapter shows how to proceed.
