The fixture patch and/or dimmer patch can be sent to the console. Fixtures with multiple DMX addresses will be patched correctly. This only works in Vx76 software v3.6 beta versions and v4.0.
It is possible to send the 2D locations to a specific layout. The layouts ID number has to be used to specify the layout. The first user layout is layout ID 3. It is also possible to send the 3D rotation of a fixture to the Vx76. A pop-up menu determines what the values in the X, Y and Z Rotation columns are.
3D Rotation Values
This pop-up menu is used to tell Moving Light Assistant what the values in the Rotation X, Y and Z columns are.
They can be:
Tilt, Rotate, Spin
This is the same as how the console shows the rotation of the fixture.
Rotate X, Y, Z
This is the rotation value around each axis.
This is the vector describing the direction the fixture is pointing.
This is the vector that describes the direction of the cable on the fixture.
2D Location Layout
It is possible to send the 2D coordinates to either the ‘Default 2D’ layout, or to an already defined layout. You specify the layout by number. The first user defined layout will be 3. The initial name of a layout when defined in the console will include the layout number.
It is possible to send the DMX fixture address and/or dimmer addresses to existing fixtures in the console patch. At present it is not possible to create fixtures from Moving Light Assistant on the console, so this must be done on the console.
