    Also known as a fixture library or profile, a file that maps an automated luminaire's functions to a console's outputs. Although most consoles come with a vast number of personalities on-board, often it is necessary to obtain a personality not included. Depending on the console and manufacturer, one can create one's own, download from the manufacturer's website or User Forum, or request one from the manufacturer.

    For specific Strand consoles, see Creating a Strand 300/500 Fixture Library. For ETC Express(ion) see http://www.etcconnect.com/docs/docs_downloads/console/Expression_Personality_Editor.zip.

    With the advent of consoles using an Abstract Control Model with real-world values, writing a personality is much more difficult and usually cannot be created by the end user.
