Sunlite Suite 2
Select ‘Edit’ under the "Button" tab on the main ribbon to access the button editor. You can also ctrl+click the button. To edit a fixture, select the fixtures you wish to edit from the Fixtures panel. The channels will appear in the channels window.
The Preset tabs allow for quicker modification of presets. A color wheel allows you to quickly modify the color of a fixture and the X-Y grid allows you to quickly change a fixtures position. To use the preset tabs you must have the Dimmer or ON channel function assigned.
If you are editing a button on the MASTER page and are working with multiple fixtures of different types, the Preset window is able to understand common channels between the fixtures. For example, if you are using a CMY moving head, and an LED RGB panel, you will be able to modify the color of both fixtures with a single color wheel.
Using the Channel Window
The button editor allows you to modify DMX channels in a variety of different ways. Before editing your scene, it is important to make sure that each DMX channel is assigned to the correct function. To assign a channel function, drag one of the icons from the left onto the top of a channel. Hold ctrl to drag onto multiple channels at once.
Off: Deactivates the channel
On: Allows manual adjustment of the channel fader
Dimmer: Allows manual adjustment of the channel fader. The channel will fade between the set value and 0 if the button dimmer dial is moved
Dimmer Min-Max: Allows a minimum and maximum value to be set. The channel will fade between the minimum and maximum values if the button dimmer dial is moved. Select the "Min" checkbox at the bottom of the fader to set the minimum value
Easy Time: Allows the channel to be edited using the Easy Time tool
Easy Step Fade: Allows the channel to be edited using the Easy Step tool
Easy Step Cut: Allows the channel to be edited using the Easy Step tool but ignores any fade commands. This is useful for a gobo or shutter channel
