This Light-O-Rama Visualizer wizard allows you to create light trees (mega trees) with either strings or CCRs. Depending on your selections, some options may not be available.
The Visualizer's Tree Wizard
Shows what the tree will look like with the parameters you have specified.
The size of the tree in pixels, in both width and height. The width of the tree is the round base, while the height is the size of the center pole. You can always make the prop larger or smaller by using the tool handles in the editor after creation.
The wizard can create full trees (360 degrees) or half trees (180 degrees).
When the wizard creates the tree, each channel bundle (also called a segment) can be created in three ways:
Allows you to control where the first bundle is created. You can further refine the starting location by using the horizontal scroll bar to "spin" the tree through the virtual center pole.
This slider allows you to choose how many independently controllable regions will be created. For light strings, each bundle will become a fixture.
You can make the tree appear to be more full by increasing the density.
These options allow further control on how the bundles/fixtures will be created:
The scroll bars allow you to change the perspective of the tree to better match your stage. The vertical scroll bar allows a 180 degree view, from inside the tree looking straight up at the top of the center pole, to straight on, to above the tree looking straight down at the center pole. The horizontal scroll bar allows you to rotate the tree around the center pole This allows you to refine the starting place of the first bundle.
Create the tree.
Close the dialog with no change.
Resets the parameters to logical defaults if desired.
