Upload your Bezier shape

Hej folks

The idea in this forum is that you can discuss and share you Bezier shapes.

Also we will try to collect them in one library so you don't need to search all posts.
If any comes at all :)

Bezier Shapes need some development love.
While they are a very powerful, quick and dirty tool to make moves for your lights, there are a few critical functions missing, like "phase" and "direction" when you use multiple fixtures.
Take a look at Martin LightJockey for instance.
When you use multiple moving heads on a Macro (that's how they call Bezier) you can set a "delay" (phase) for each fixture so that each fixture is on a different location of the selected path.

I believe that this is the reason Bezier shapes are not used that much in FS.
Personally, I use FX generator to accomplish in 10-15 minutes what I would accomplish with Bezier shapes in 2-3 minutes if such functions exist...

So, if developers are reading this, please show bezier shapes a little love to unlock their full potential!

I think if you select all wanted fixtures and use the "Distr." function then you will get effect you are looking for.
And if you want to change direction then the "Reverse" option may help.
