    How do all you Hog programmers deal with twin spins and Hog II programing. Are you building your own profile since there isn't one or using something else?

    In the past I've built my own, but it's been a few years since I've had gobo rotators on my shows.

    You could always do it the easy (yet annoying to program) way and patch it as two seperate desk channels.

    Is this what you have? The Great American Market (GAM) - Home Im a building a fixture library for it right now

    This should do it, patch the fixture and the rotator as a split fixture and you should golden. I don't have a way to test this but let me know if it works

    version = 40
    Count = 1

    //-------------------------------------------------------
    fixture = Twinspin
    manufacturer = 99
    product = 1
    name = Twinspin
    yoke = no

    //Created using Denis Hessberger's Wholehog2 Library Generator application!


    output = dmx

    parameter = Intensity
    default = 0
    highlight = 255
    crossfade = 0
    movement = normal
    type = ltp8bit
    range = 0, 255,%

    output = dmx

    parameter = Gobo Speed
    kind = f
    default = 0
    highlight = 0
    crossfade = 0
    movement = normal
    type = ltp8bit
    range = 1, 127,> rot, noauto
    range = 129, 254,< rot, noauto
    range = 128,Stop, noauto
    range = 0,Index, noauto

    parameter = Gobo Index
    kind = f
    default = 0
    highlight = 0
    crossfade = 0
    movement = normal
    type = ltp8bit
    range = 0,Rotate, noauto
    range = 1, 255,Index, noauto

    Really should make the Intensity parameter be type=htp8bit otherwise the fader won't affect it properly.
