Fixtures are the base component of the Light engine in Usine that you can put onto the plot panels.
Usine contains a complete set of ready to use fixtures, which covers almost all real life situations. Fixtures are compatible with DMXIS fixture’s files. See fixture-editor
Renames the selected object. Alternative to [alt-click] on an interface-design module, or any panel, to change its caption.

List of available parameters.
In Usine, all fixture's parameters are in the range [0..1], to be compatible with most of built-in modules.
Reset all parameters to their default values.
Manufacturer model of the fixture.
Expand button to display extended properties of the parameter.
Once expanded, you obtain something similar to:
Sets this parameter as master, to be affected by the global dimmer of the master-light-panel, and fades of the grid (see below).
The value of a parameter can be sent to several DMX channels at the same time. This is a way, for example, to turn a simple DMX-Par into a group of similar DMX-Par.
In the example above, the value of the Par dimmer is duplicated to the
101, 102, 103, 104DMX channels.
The value of the Parameter is inverted, goes from 100% to 0%.
Mapping range minimum value. The output value cannot be lower than this value.
Mapping rage maximum value. The output cannot be higher than this value.
Mapping curve coefficient to adjust the curve shape.
Determines if parameters of this object are saved in the preset-panel.
Parameters of the this object can cross faded when you recall a preset in the grid.
Optional setting, does not appear on all objects.
If some fixtures definitions are missing in the list available in Usine, you can easily create you own files. Fixtures files are compatible with DMXIS fixtures definitions and are stored in text files UTF8. See dmxis-fixture-editor.
