2021 Moving light accessories


I like the new accessory process for adding top hats, etc to conventional lights. It doesn't seem to work for moving lights. When I add a clamp or moving light claw, it places it at the front of the light. I can re-position it so it connects to the base, but when I focus the light, it moves to the front of the light.

How do we change the relationship?

Basically there are a couple of factors that need to be in place for Hook Clamps.

  1. The Hook Clamp needs a Parts record attached with the Base field checked
  2. It also needs a Light info record attached and the device field should be filled in with Static Accessory
  3. The Hook Clamp symbol must have its insertion point at the point where the clamp wraps the barrel or truss chord

When you run the Accessory tool, what should happen is the Clamp is added to the insertion point of the lighting device and the lighting device geometry is displaced downwards by the depth of the clamp symbol from insertion point and below.

I would have thought the clamps in the 2021 Library would already have that.
