ok, we have 2 people runing rail for our show, aida. the director wants a abnormally large lotus flower to fly in open and slowly wither during a wedding scene. the way we have it riged is i open it from two steel cables, and then the other person starts lowering, well i take slack out. (the cables run from the metal lotus frame up through the grid then down to our rail) how ever our school has a double purchase no room rail so on top of having to pull it down in sync i need to see the lotus so it dosent hit a masking wall and shake them. any one have a better way to rig it?

How about if you Re-route your control cables so that they come down in another location that will give you a better view of what is going on?
