Source 4 Shutters in Vision

Recommended Posts

New question.  So I have looked all over the forum and can't find the answer anywhere.  I have a good amount of source 4s in my show file and most work fine, however a few come on, even though they are in the fixture list and look setup just like all the rest, but no light is shown.  A few others have what looks like shutters in even though I went through them all in Vectorworks and made sure that the shutters were all out.  Anyways, is there a way to modify the shutters in Vision?  I can't seem to find anything allowing that.

Yes. From the Window menu select Software Console.

Now when you select a conventional fixture you can adjust the shutters using the software console in Vision.

I have noticed too that the iris is at full close and needs to be reset to open the fixture to let the light appear. Find this mostly in vision.

I believe this is a bug that I've already fixed for SP3. Keep an eye out 😉
