So here's the question - as a lighting designer - what is your philosophy for assigning channel numbers? IE when you have full lattitude:
- Is channel 1 an 'Area' light or something else.
- Is DR usually channel 1, or do you start DL ( or UpLeft or anyplace else).
- Do you put channels together by position, or by use. IE if you have six areas with 5 lights per area ( front right, front left, side right, side left, down) would you put all of the Area A lights on channel 1-5, B on 6-10 and so on - OR - would you put A-front on 1&2. A sides on 13&14 A down on 25? -OR- some other plan.
- If you have a warm / cool side light from a box boom position ( right and left) do you sequence "Right Warm, Right Cool, Left Warm, Left Cool" -OR- "Right Warm, Left Warm, Right Cool, Left Cool".
I'm just curious how other minds approach the problem ( and I have never seen it discussed ). If anyone knows of a reference about the topic, please post it.
