Adding Barndoor to Fixture

Recommended Posts

Hey there.

Because the stock Arri fixtures don't come with barndoors in 3D, I was trying to add them manualy by inserting 4 extruded rectangles and linking them with the parts database (body). Unfortunately I'm not able to define the barndoors to align with the focus-point.
Does anyone know how to specify these rectangles to align in 3D?

If you want to add the  geometry to the Body part of the symbol, then select the body and the barndoor geometry and Group them. Then attach the Body record to the group.


Of course you could always use a barndoor accessory. They work really well.
