You need to edit the vis extension file, which usually sits in c:\program files\Avolites\Visualiser\Extensions.

First thing: check with the manual that the Pan travel corresponds with what is given in the manual of your fixture. In the following example I assume a fixture with a pan travel of 530°.

Then: Find the section beginning with 'ChanRef Pan'. There follows a line in this section containing something like

Code: Select all

Mapping 0 65535 -265.000000 265.000000


In order to rotate the default positions by 45°, you need to add (or deduct) 45 to both the values. E.g. if you add it, it would read

Code: Select all

Mapping 0 65535 -220.000000 310.000000
. Or if you deduct it:

Code: Select all

Mapping 0 65535 -310.000000 220.000000
.

thank you for your help.
And if i want to invert a channel (Iris), what values should i modify

// Iris
ChanRef Iris
Vismode Value
UseBits 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
DmxOffset 13
Mapping 0 127 0 1
Mapping 254 255 1 1
End

ChanRef Iris
Vismode Speed
UseBits 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Change

'Mapping 0 127 0 1'

to

'Mapping 0 127 1 0'
