1. Note that one of the unique features of L8 is that you can build new fixture profiles (or tune existing ones) using the Fixture Constructor section of the software. We highly recommend learning and using this feature as it enables higher understanding of the properties of each fixture and what the fixture can virtually replicate within the software. In the Fixture Constructor there are large libraries of realistic 3D fixture bodies and gobos that you can use in your building process. Please see the User Manual for how to get started.

2. If you prefer not using the above method, you can post your request here by using the following guidelines.
• The request name (Topic Title) should be the actual name of the fixture instead of "Fixture Request" in order to allow other users to quickly find it.
• Each request should be provided with link to the fixture manual (along with all photometric and physical details) from the MANUFACTURER's WEBSITE !
• If there are no gobo pictures in the fixture manual, please contact the manufacturer (or photo them yourself) and post the information.
• Fixtures Profiles are updated automatically via Internet, please press UPDATE button (located top right in Main Screen) if flashing red.
• You can check if your fixture request has been completed and will automatically update by visiting the "Completed Fixtures" sub-forum located in this forum.
• You agree to fully test the completed fixture to allow us to add it to our library.
• We will not add low quality "no-name" Chinese fixtures to our library. However, you can build them yourself for your own use.

Hi Gord
I am having a problem and running out of time, hope you can help.
The guys are helping me with a new personality.
I have been sent the fixture file.
Its loaaded and working.
It needs tweeking. I'm not very experiecned with LC.
I discovered I can go into the fixture and change the gobo images.
I have done this to the unit and saved and exited,
But the gobos in the unit have not changed,
So I unpatch the lot and repatched the lot, same outcome.
I copeid the fixture and pasted it into the USER fixture window. Opend the fixtur, the gobo are all there, so good.
Patched a fixture from my user fixtures ( I renamed it just in case )
Gobo are gone.

what am I doing wrong?

Any help will be appreciated.... time is running out :!:

Hi Gord,
How are you man! Got a feature request for this guide.
Can you see if we can get an annex to this with a full attribute list with descriptions at the tail of this document for all available functions in constructor?
It'd be great for figuring out what each function does exactly.

Thanks!
