Fixtures remapping

29.08.2013

Starting from version 4.4.1, QLC+ offers a new functionality called fixtures remapping.
When performing live shows in different places, it occurs to know which fixtures are installed at the very last minute. Well, fixtures remapping helps you to use your existing projects in every situation.
For example, you can setup a project with just one PAR, one moving head and one scanner. When reaching the place where the show is going to take place, you can remap your fixtures to those you find, for example 50 PARs, 30 moving heads and 15 scanners.
With QLC+, it will take just a few minutes to do this operation !

Fixtures remapping allows to perform 1-to-1 or 1-to-many reassignment of entire fixtures or single channels. QLC+ will try as much as possible to reassign channels of the same category.
When confirming the operation, a new project will be automatically saved to preserve your original project.
All the fixtures, scenes, EFX, Virtual Console widgets and audio triggers found in the original project will be remapped to work on the new fixtures list.

Following a screenshot of how this feature looks like.


As you can see, it's pretty straight forward to take advantage of this feature.
On the left side you will find the list of your original project fixtures, sorted by universe and address. On the right side a seamless list that you will need to fill with the new fixtures you intend to use.
Once you're happy with both lists, you can start connecting entire fixtures or single channels. You can perform 1-to-1 or 1-to-many connections.
A useful option of this panel is the possibility to remap also fixtures names, in case you want to identify the fixtures of the remapped project with the names used in the original project.

Enjoy !
