    Control/Dimming Truly "additive" subs/faders on an ETC Ion

    I want to use an ion to control a bunch of moving lights (among other things) for a dance show, and I have 80% of an idea of how I want to do it, but there are a few missing pieces. I'd like to have one fader control the horizontal position of the focus of all the lights on the stage, and one...

    Home Location of a moving Light

    I'm running a Chauvet Intimidator 355z IRC on an ETC Element Console. The way the fixture is mounted when you put the control in the center the light points at the ceiling. Does anybody know a way that you can change this position so it homes to the center of the stage?

    Automated Fixtures What is this?

    My tremendously outdated theater is taking the next couple of weeks to try to incorporate moving lights.

At this stage I've just been chewing the ears off various colleagues, trying to get a good list together for an in-house demo. But before contacting those eager reps, I was hoping...
