    Hi There

    Is there any way to read out the coordinate of the lamps.

    I need to send the info of a festival to a LD using MA3D and does not have WYG. Is there any way to do this ???

    just a simple data sheet with lamp name and coordinate.

    have a great day :)

    Sadly not, afaik.You'll have to do it yourself in maOnPc, or go through Vw Spotlight.

    Hi all,

    Actually, a couple of Releases ago, we introduced a feature whereby the X, Y and Z coordinates of fixtures can be displayed both in DATA and PRES modes. These columns are not visible by default, but may be enabled from a Spreadsheet's View Options > Data View Options tab or a Report's View Options > Report tab. In both cases, you must scroll to the bottom of the Columns list to find them; a Report's Detail (level) must be set to 'Fixtures' or 'Fixtures and Accessories' in order for these columns to appear in the Columns list. Please see the screenshots I attached here for more details.

    I came across it once, but now I know what to use it for!
    Is there also a way to get the rotation over XYZ of a fixture in "real" space too?

    No, but that's a great idea, Bhagat! :)

    The only uncertainty here is how this will translate to real world rotations around the X, Y and Z axes: as you know, in WYSIWYG, fixtures are "rotated" based the hang structure they're hanging from (i.e. Pan/Tilt/Spin), and therefore, the rotation of the hang structure itself will have to be taken into consideration when displaying rotation around the actual axes. I am sure this is something that can be figured out though.. after all, computers are supposed to work out the math for us, are they not? hehehe


    Anyway, I will add this to the list right now,

    Dany
