Database for internal Barcode

Recommended Posts

I would have a question regarding the database.
I have created a database for our internal barcodes.
Afterwards I imported a movinghead into the accessory manager and linked it to the database.
When I import the symbol I have the number in the data tab.
If I now insert the symbol as a spotlight, I have no data.
Can someone help me there?
Thank you

With the lighting device you are not simply placing a symbol. Any record information would be buried within the object and not easily accessible. 

The lighting device does have a method of dealing with this type of data using "Additional Default Records" and customized  Lighting Device Parameters in the Spotlight Preferences.


You want to create a customized lighting device parameter with the same name as your record field and then select the record in the Additional Default Records dialog.


When you place a lighting device the record data will then automatically be copied from your custom record into the custom field in the lighting device.
