This Light-O-Rama Visualizer wizard allows you to create light arches or fans with either strings or CCRs.
The Visualizer's Arch/Fan Wizard
Shows what the arch or fan will look like with the parameters you have specified.
The name the prop will be given when the arch or fan is created in the editor. Any fixtures created will use this name plus a sequential number (e.g. "Example Arch 1" for the prop name "Example Arch").
Allows you to choose if you are creating an arch (a semicircle of lights) or a fan (a semicircle of lights that start at the center and extend to the outside edge).
Size of the arch or fan in pixels. You can always make the prop larger or smaller by using the tool handles in the editor.
Allows you to control if the first arch or fan segment is created on the left side or the right side of the prop.
For arches that use less than four segments, the "Allow Arch Correction" option becomes available. When checked, this option will enhance the look of the arch, making it appear more round than angular.
The type of lights you will use in your simulation for this arch or fan (strings, CCR or DMX Pixel).
If you selected the CCR or DMX Pixel light type, this option allows you to set the number of pixels each segment will use. For example, a seven segment arch that uses five pixels per segment will require 35 total pixels.
The following options only apply to fans, and are unavailable for arches:
The size (in pixels) of the inside curve. Lights "radiate" from the outside semicircle (size) to the inside semicircle (designated by the inside size).
The number of radii that each segment consists of.
When creating the radii, the Visualizer will normally create them with a start point on the outside semicircle inwards to the inside semicircle. Checking this box reverses that. This is handy for CCR or DMX Pixel fans when pixel order is important.
Create the arch or fan.
