Creating a pivot point with 3D loci on custom instrument.


Recommended Posts

I've been attempting to build an instrument with a fixture head that moves when I set the focus point. The references I've found online are great for building the rest of the fixture / instrument but haven't been able to create a pivoting point with the 3D loci. 


I've found a reference to this on Youtube but it's the 2015  or older versions and I can't seem to find the "custom yoke" option. 


I'll attempt to dig a little further but I thought I would put it out on this to see if anyone has any tips.

If you haven’t already, import the current Parts record from one of the Spotlight content library files. 
Every 3D element in the symbol should have a parts record attached and exactly one of the fields checked. 

The 3D locus goes at the intersection of the pan axis and the tilt axis. It also needs the Parts record attached and the Point field checked.  You should have exactly one 3D locus.
