Fixture Creator - Beam Configuration

Configuration of the Beam control in straight forward.



It is only faders that are to configured with a min and a max value.
Here the value 0 to 255 correspond to 0% - 100% on the faders.

If there is value in a row then the related control will not be shown in the Beam panel.

It will not make any sense to describe the configuration of each control but just mention that they can all be seen in the Beam Panel description.

Is the size of the beam going from spot to wide.
Some fixtures has some fixed lenses that be added to change the beam size. These lenses can be controlled elsewhere. Normally on the gobo wheel or macro.

Focus:

Zoom:

Prism:
