Fixture Mode

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to add or adjust fixture modes yourself?

No.  These are provided through the vision data.  GDTF would allow that but right now it is not fully supported, so not really possible to make modes.  You can, however,  adjust the channel information for the fixture, on a case by case basis.  not as easy as the mode drop down, but gets the data you need in the drawing.

I use a user field in Lightwright for that.  Its not perfect but I dont tend to want the mode on the drawing myself.  And for fixtures that can have several settings in addtion to the mode, having, what is essentially a text field, I can add in as much or as little information as I like.
