Copy Photo Dialog

Clicking on the Copy button will open the dialog shown above. It is possible to copy a photo from anywhere that uses photos/images in Moving Light Assistant.


The ‘Source’ determines where the source image will come from. When a source item is selected, the image will appear in the ‘Copy’ section of the dialog.

Current Preset
The source image will come from the currently selected preset. This is useful where you want to copy the current preset image to its own channels.

You can choose from the pop-up menu the preset you wish to copy an image from.

Enter a channel number in the current preset to copy from.

Enter a channel number in the current preset to copy from.

Select a Sequence/Cue List from the ‘Sequence’ pop-up menu and then enter a cue number to copy an image from. There are little up and down arrows next to the textfield which will increment or decrement the cue number.


The ‘Copy’ section will show the image to be copied. If the source item has multiple images, you can use the < > arrow keys to switch between images. The image caption will be displayed below the arrow keys. In the ‘Data’ section you can determine which components of the image are copied. You can choose as many or as few as you need.

This will copy the photo itself.

This will copy any drawings (annotations) on the image. In some instances you may only want to copy the drawings from one photo to another. An example would be if you have drawn a focus grid on a photo and want to copy it to other images.

Photo Description
This will copy the image caption text.

Channel Notes
When the source image is Channel or Fixture, you can additionally copy the ‘Notes’ for a channel.


The destination is where the image will be copied to. You can choose from:

Current Preset
The image will be copied to the currently selected preset as determined by the setting in the ‘Image Add/Merge’ settings. ‘Add New’ will add the photo assuming there is no more that four images already attached to the preset. If photos already exist, you can replace an existing photo by selecting the photo number to replace.

Selected Channels/Fixtures
The image will be added to the currently selected channels/fixtures as a Channel Image.
