Hello, I was showing off LC to a friend yesterday who was very impressed by this product. He did bring up a very good question that got me scratching my head also. When adding fixtures in LC, how do you know which side the LED or power cord is coming from? This can be very important when pre-programming for a show to make sure presets match up. Any advice you can give me on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hi gjacksonlights
due to high detalization in LC for fixture's models, you can see the display area on each of them and place they in a proper orientation.

In DMX section, Paper mode, your can see also an Arrow on the gobo for selected fixture that shown to you the positive tilt direction (the calibration may be done by Inversion DMX for Pan/Tilt buttons).

For the paperwork, the file fixture.txt located in your database describes fixtures patching and orientation in 3D with angles (position is done from the adjustable in Room World center).

We also strongly recommend you to calibrate your physical fixtures with LC before any projects to avoid incorrect pan/tilt directions when they are rigged up.

Hope this helps a little. :D
