Renaming fixtures

Recommended Posts

I am just starting out with a new ML48. We have a number of LED lights which I have added as fixtures. The problem is that they all have the same name in the fixtures list so it is difficult to remember which is which.

 

Is there a way to rename fixtures to something meaningful?

Hello,

 

Unfortunately you can't rename fixtures on the Jester ML.

However as there are 3 pages each of 10 fixture positions giving a total of 30, you can organise your fixtures across these pages to make it more visually meaningful.

 

For example you could have Front of House fixtures on page 1 ordered stage right to stage left, and then over stage fixtures on page 2 running from stage right to stage left.

 

Hope this helps

That's a shame. You seem to be able to rename everything else.

 

How easy would it be to create a new fixture with suitable name? At lest then I could have names like "DSL Flood" etc.

You could do that using the Fixture Editor Software. Make a copy of the fixture you want and give it a user name. You can then load it into the console as a user fixture.

Then repeat this for all the fixtures you want to use.
