Holding SHFT while pointing at CCR or DMX Pixel Universes

 

When in fixture mode, if you point at a CCR or DMX Pixel universe fixture, the pixels will 'light up' in the order they are assigned to the fixture.  This can help with finding pixels that are for some reason 'out of order' on your stage.  The slider here will set how fast the pixels light up from fast to slow.
