Gobos getting cut off


I created a custom gobo (well two of them) and when I import the artowork into the resource libraryit is placing the artwork in lower left corner of the area and causing the edge to be cut off. See snap shot from screen

The problem is likely your source image. Just like a real gobo, your source image needs to fit within the circle generated by the light.

It's a little hard to tell because your image is also a rectangle but if you look you will see that your missing areas are clipped by the circular light.

The overall image must be square.

We recommend a 2"x2" square with black filled to the edge and then a slightly smaller circular area for the image area.

A lot of gobo shift would work but you will then start to see light bleed around the gobo image.
