Hello all, I am a freelance lighting designer and I work on several different consoles depending on availability at the venue, mostly the ETC Ion. I currently own an ETC Expression 3 (I know...I need to catch up with the time. Not very helpful when it comes to movers and leds) paired with DasLight for easier controls of moving fixtures. The problem I keep running into for shows is the time it takes to program the console every single show. My company designs and produces close to 25 productions per year ranging from all styles including dance, live theater, musicals, live music, corporate and even lighting for DJs. What I am really looking for is different methods by other lighting designers to streamline the process and make programming quicker and easier for all types of events. It could be anything from custom magic sheets, to programing tips, to live music cue lists, etc. I'm really looking for help in any area to help speed up my programming for shows making it easier to produce shows on such a tight timeline. (Normally I have between 3 to 4 days to hang and program an entire rig including LED wash fixtures, Movers, and Conventional's.) I would also like to know how to make busking easier for live music shows using movers and LEDs. I find it takes me a very long time to program effects and I know it is in part due to lack of knowledge and organization. I would love any help or advice on making the process easier where changes or edits can be made quickly, especially at the whim of a director. Any advice, sample show files (console does not matter), magic sheets, or other paperwork would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help all!
