Getting your console ready to control

Before jumping in and adjusting levels, applying colours, and running effects, you need to tell your console what fixtures you have, and how you want to control them. This is called patching, which will be covered in detail in the session. What’s more, this session will also cover some handy hacks, which will help you speed up your programming time, looking at some of the console settings and defaults.

Tracking: The Theory, The Clarification, The Powerful Update Tool

In this session, we’ll look at an area of lighting control that splits people into 3 groups; people who know tracking, people who don’t know tracking, and people who think they know tracking!

By the end of this session, hopefully everyone will be in the first of those groups, as we explore the theory, the jargon, and explain it using everyday terminology. You’ll see it in action and learn how it can be a very powerful tool to use on your next production (without ruining all of your cues this time!).

The differences of chases and effects will be covered, allowing you to understand when it is best to use one or the other.
