Instrument summary with wattages

Recommended Posts

What is the best solution for dealing with the same type of instruments that have different wattages? If the default for a S4 leko is 575w, if you have a combination of 575w and 750w, the instrument summary won't work. At one point someone suggested duplicating the entire ETC library for 575w, 750w, 77V lamps. It seems there should be an easier way. Any suggestions?

If you have a mix of wattages for the same types on your plot, you generally want a graphical indication of alternate wattages, and hence separate symbols for each wattage type.  By "won't work," I assume you mean that 750w and 575w units won't count together as the same type, and this is by design as, for example, not all Source Four versions support 750w lamps.  You would also see these as separate line items on a shop order.  You can, of course, use subtotals to group types of instrument together.
