Introduction

In order to help you with the placement of fixtures for your Patch, you may load a background image. As such, this is a feature of the MADRIX Patch Editor. Learn more »Patch Editor

 

 

Overview

While the Patch Editor allows you to semi-automatically place fixtures according to your requirements, loading an image into its background can assist you with the manual placement of fixtures.

Go to the menu Preferences > Patch Editor...
[Keyboard shortcut: F3]
A new window will open.

In the Patch Editor, go to View > Background Image

 

In the Patch Editor, choose to View > Voxel Map / DVI Map / DMX Map in order to close the Background Image View again.

 

 

Settings

Adjust the following settings according to your needs:

 

Background Image Settings

Enable - Activates the usage of the background image. Deactivate it in order to hide the image again.
Image > Load - Allows you to select the background image from your harddisk.
Image > Remove - Removes the selected file again.
Position - Defines the location of the image on the workspace of the Patch Editor in X and Y. Confirm with Apply

Apply - Always confirm any changes.
Reset - Restores the last used values again.
