Fixtures from 2 libraries

de_mtsde_mts Registered User
Hi all,

I want to program a show with some movitec SL250 (from the uncommon_v4.hog3lib) and some HES technobeams and martin atomic (fixturelib_v4.hog3lib) units. I'm using Hog3 PC.

Problem is to create a new show I have to select 1 lib and the units are in 2 different libs.

How can I solve this? I'm just starting with Hog so I'm not used to work with it and only saw the tutorial movies.

    one way is to create a show using the uncommon lib.
    Patch 1 of the sl 250 fixtures.
    Make a backup of the show,setup,shows,backup.
    Log off and close that show.
    Create a new show using the common lib,
    patch your atomics and then mege in your old show.
    Setup,shows....merge show.
    Select the sl250 only when asked to merge fixtures.

    hope I have included everything c

    Thanks for this it works.

    It's a very strange way to do this but I will make a show with all the fixtures we have so it's only for one time.

    it is easier when you create a new show with the standard lib4.
    Then press "setup - show" and merge the uncommon Lib file in your show.
    Now you have got the fixtures from the uncommon Lib in your fixture schedule.

    Hope this helps

    Launch your show with the Full v4 library and then use the "show merge" function to merge in the fixtures you need from the uncommon library.
