Tweaking a Existing Fixture Personality

Postby Magners1985 » 17 Jul 2018, 20:27

Evening all

I am looking to tweak a existing fixture as i know the guys at Avo are busy trying to cope with everything, we use chauvet quite a bit at work and the R1 spots are my main problem as in the premade Gobo's and Beam section is just coming up with Gobo 1 , Gobo 2 etc i want to replace this with the factory standard pictures from the chauvet website and then when complete i can share this to every one and even to Avo if they want it, Any advice on how to import the fixture into the builder and how to tweak it would be amazing

thanks in advance

Hm, wanting to share with the community but asking how to open the file... (sorry)

Either patch the fixture and then do <Patch> [Edit Fixtures] [Edit Personality], select personality.

Or find the file in the personality library which usually is in %program files x86%\Avolites\Titan\Fixturelibrary - the filename is Chauvet_Rogue R1 Spot.d4.

Best, Sebastian

Sebastian has kindly answered your question but the Chauvet Rogue R1 Spot personality already contains gobo swatches. To update a personality that is already patched in a show go to PATCH, [Edit Fixtures], [Update Personality], [Rogue R1 Spot]. If the [Rogue R1 Spot] softkey doesn't appear you may need to download and install the latest library from the personality website first. To check the version currently patched press OPEN/VIEW then select a relevant fixture handle to open the Fixture View window. In the Fixture View window select the Personality tab to reveal the history. The latest entry at the time of writing is dated 24-05-18 and this is the date when the gobo swatches were added.

Note that the factory swatches involve significant processing to ensure high quality with minimal file size and include alpha masks. I appreciate your generous offer but unfortunately, for this and various other reasons, it is not practical to include or use customer generated or modified personalities for the factory library. However, it is not a problem to make new personalities or update them as long as the relevant information is available so please do not hesitate to submit a request via the form on the website if there is anything else you need.
