Fixture Library

On the left-hand side, a tree structure represents the content of the currently loaded fixture library file.
The items are arranged in alphabetical order.
Each top branch of the structure names a lighting fixtures manufacturer.
Every item has one or more sub-items representing the fixture profile or a variation of the fixture profile for different modes.

Fixture Preview

The area on the right-hand side of the Fixture Editor serves as a preview while editing. The upper part shows a graphical model of the fixture. The pixel or voxel belonging to the currently selected channel is highlighted with the specified color. Additionally, the lower part summarizes all information [channels, colors, positions, values, types, and names] of this pixel/voxel. The preview is updated every time you edit the fixture profile.
