    In my experience, spots with shutters are off almost over the whole library.
    Robe spots for instance have the shutter assembly rotated 45 degrees, which is not respected in the library items. High end spots have the order of the shutters arranged in a different way, Varilites are generally ok, ClayPaky's also have a rotation that is slightly off.

    Maybe it is good idea to put tried and tested fixtures in this thread, so we can compare experiences.

    Hi Floriaan,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This is the first time we are hearing of this issue, and surprised it hasn’t been reported before. While it won't be possible to retest every existing fixture for shutter accuracy, we definitely want to help improve the most commonly used fixtures where needed.

    For any fixture which you identify has incorrect shutter representation, please send us your testing notes (and if possible, photos of the actual fixture shutter) so we can compare them with our model. Then we can make adjustments following your observations.
