So, I have a dance studio that comes in twice a year and the main portion of the stage (especially the more upstage part) is usually lit from above with warm and cool lights. I use my 1-3 E with 6" Fresnels and pars/parnels angled across the stage. I.e. The lights on SL of center are angled toward SR and vice versa. Just kind of how I picked up previous people who did it.
My question comes in the warm cool balance. I have done 1/2 the stage cool pointing one way and 1/2 the stage warm pointing the other...but can't remember if I have alternated W-C-W-C on both sides. (it's late...sorry....)
I'm also helping cover the stage from my catwalk with 36° S4's in matching colors.
I do remember that when I do ALL on one side or the other, I have to (understandably) fill in the off side of the stage more with other lights....
My gut tells me that the alternating warm/cool on either side would be more beneficial. I'm covering an area about 25' wide, and the flood settings on the fresnels usually does a respectable coverage job.
Sorry for the rambling...just finally getting a more experienced opinion on how these should or could be mixed. FYI, we're not talking deep colors here. Maybe a couple shades darker than a Bastard Amber and Special Lavender
Thanks for any advice....
