 Looking into the DMX table the DMX value for each gobo / color / function is normally given in a range.\\ Looking into the DMX table the DMX value for each gobo / color / function is normally given in a range.\\
 For instance Channel 3, gobo 2, it is the one named “MOVEMENT 1”, has the value range 8 to 38. The is made with a range, because some controller only have faders to control the fixture and this makes it difficult to set a precise value.\\ For instance Channel 3, gobo 2, it is the one named “MOVEMENT 1”, has the value range 8 to 38.

 A good DMX value to enter in the gobo table is the middle value.\\ A good DMX value to enter in the gobo table is the middle value.\\
-Here (23+38)/2 = 23 brings the gobo wheel to the middle.\\+Example: ​(23+38)/2 = 23 brings the gobo wheel to the middle.\\
 \\ \\
 The reason for selecting the middle value is that, if it is a wheel then the min and max value may bring the wheel in a position where gobo is not centered totally. The value between 2 gobos may bring the wheel in a position so two half gobos can be seen and this is normally to be avoided.\\ The reason for selecting the middle value is that, if it is a wheel then the min and max value may bring the wheel in a position where gobo is not centered totally.
