Name no valid

1 comment

When creating or modifying a fixture profile, the name cannot be more than 10 caracters long without spaces.

Dec 26, 2018

Two observations to make here:

1- Indeed: Names cannot be longer than 10 characters however the software tries to ''add'' 2-3 more character suffix to specify the fixture channel count upon saving... thus returning an error because the name is now too long.... I'm left to conclude that the actual name length should be closer to 7-8 characters than 10 in order to account for that automated addition by Lightshark. Beware!


2- Trying to save modified profiles returns a error.... Any ideas why? No show files are loaded with a given fixture and still no luck....

  • Hi there, I’m having real difficulty using the fixture editor. I have a ton of IMG STAGELINE Wash-100 fixtures and unfortunately they are not in the library. Ive tried contacting Lightshark for support but I’ve not heard a reply in weeks. Is there anyone that can help set up this future in the 12 channel mode? Many thanks IMG STAGELINE WASH 100 https://www.img-stageline.com/media/FLE/WASH100RGBW.pdf IMG STAGELINE WASH 100 https://www.img-stageline.com/media/FLE/WASH100RGBW.pdf
  • I have recently purchased the LS-1 desk, when trying to create a fixture profile I’ve noticed that on the screen there is no pages under parameters as I have seen in a training video. Has anyone else notice this lack of this action. Is there a new software update I need to download. I purchased my LS-1 two months ago and still haven’t got anywhere and feeling frustrated. Can use any help. Thanks Gary
