Studio Spot 575 - Litho Wheel Rotate

I work for a small theatre company (think less than ten employees) and we are trying moving lights for the first time, we have been able to get them to work, running off of our ETC Express board, and so far have been quite sucessful. Unfortunatley though when we try to rotate an individual litho pattern we can only get it to index instead of a continuous rotate. We have figured out how to preset it on the actual fixture but this isn't at all helpful, as we are a theatre company it has to be console driven to fit in with our lighting cues for the show. Also, as with summer theatre time is of the essence.

    You need to set the Gobo Wheel Mode channel to Rotate. That will then allow the Gobo Rotate channel to spin the gobo rather than just index it.

    Thanks, I got it to work eventually (thanks tech support!), I just had only about 2 hours to learn how to make them work before I needed to program them with the lighting designer so I was desperate for an answer. thanks again
