On the left-hand side, a tree structure represents the content of the currently loaded fixture library file.

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.

Collapse All

Collapses all entries of the list.

Edit Fixture

Allows you to edit the selected fixture profile. First, select one fixture profile from the list.



Fixture And Channels

In the center of the Fixture Editor window, the configuration for the currently selected fixture and channels is displayed and can be changed. Learn more »Configuration Of Fixture Profiles



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 and visually aligned. 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.
