gobo wheel challenge

BBCLDBBCLD Registered User, Hog Beta
I have two Clay Paky Alpha Spot 1200 HPE's and the fixtures are nearly identical in their gobo set. However, on the first gobo wheel the fixtures are inverted from each other (gobo 1 in one fixture is gobo 8 in the other and so on). Is there a way in the Hog to invert the wheel set for just one fixture or do I need to change it the fixture itself?

    Unfortunately I think you will have to do this at the fixture. The Wholehog currently doesn't have any way to customize wheel slot ordering. You can change the slot names in edit fixtures, but slot 1 on the Wholehog will always send a dmx value for physical slot 1 on the fixture. Your other option is to build a custom fixture from the Alpha Spot 1200 using the fixture builder but this probably going to consume more time and be more risky than just correcting the patterns in the fixture itself.

    You could also simply not use the slot-bar for gobos and build palettes for each pattern (like we used to on Hog-2). This will probably be the fastest fix.

    Hope this helps:)
