Click or Double click (macOS) on the application icon to run Moving Light Assistant.
The Launch window will be displayed.
Options exist to either start a new show, load an existing show, or load the last show file used. Make a selection, or choose to exit the application.
It is only possible to have one document open at a time, and one instance of Moving Light Assistant running at any time.
The show file is self-contained and does not save any extra files for different types of data. For example, any photos used in the application are saved within the show document. The show document will also contain copies of the fixture profiles and gobos/colours used in the show, so that when the file is sent to another person, if they do not have the fixture profiles or gobos/colours used in the file, they will be added to the person’s profile and gobo libraries automatically.
The only exceptions to this are ‘Report Layout Files’ and ‘Scripts’. By default, ‘Report Layout Files’ are not included in the show file, but may optionally be so.
