    Cyc light pixels acting up

    Hey so we're working on a fairly large production for the venue we're in. We've got a bunch of cyc light bars. One of them has two pixels that flicker different colours randomly(no consistency). There hasn't been any actual pixel mapping just whole fixture control. What would cause this is...

    Cyc Lights on RP Screen?

    Hi all!My company is about to purchase some ETC Selador Vivid-Rs. In the show we're about to start working on, we have the need for both projections and cyc washes. I've done projections onto a muslin cyc before, with some success, but I'd much rather do a Rear Projection screen. We have just...
