This forum is designed for you to get HELP with building fixtures, Please make an attempt if you get stuck YOU must upload your partial fixture file (as an exported fixture file) so we can point you in the right direction if you don't do this you won't LEARN and if you don't learn you will may never be able to get the fixtures you require. It is Very hard to make fixtures for people when we don't have the same light at hand to test it with after all having the light in front of you makes programing so much easier! That's why we will help but rarely build any fixtures for you. You Alone are the best person to build your fixtures if you need help ask if you want it building for you Don't....

Attached are 2 fixture definitions for your instrument. One is the 6 channel version and one is the 72 channel version. The Freestyler programming windows will open if you click Window-->All after you select the fixture.

The 72 channel version used Freestyler's RGB segments feature. Select the fixture and open the Colors window (it will open if you clikc Window-->All). At the bottom of the Colors window are several check boxes. The 18 larger boxes represent the 18 RGBW segments of your instrument. Freestyler will send DMX values to the corresponding RGBW segment of each checked box. The segments which are not checked will not be sent new DMX values.

The smaller (probably colored green) box with a check mark provides shortcuts for placing check-marks in the segment boxes.

Note the top and bottom of the segment check boxes reflect the color of the segment.

IMPORTANT. Make sure the fixture definition you add to freestyler matches the physical configuration of your instrument and that the starting DMX address of your instrument and the starting DMX address of the fixture match!
