Chapter 61. Version 1.7.6.8

61.1. New Features

Added support for mixing Heads and Groups within Grids in the Outputs, View Plan. To insert a Group in a Grid copy it from the Group Window into the Grid. Groups in Grids can be used to select fixtures and are also used by the Pixel Mapper to output for all heads in the group instead of just for one head.

Added support for import of patch and Viualiser XYZ data from VectorWorks csv files. In Patch, View Chans select Import Heads and select the required csv file. Refer to the MagicQ user manual for details of fields that need to be present in the VectorWorks data.

Added Export Fixture Positions CSV to MagicVis Reports. This lists the positions and rotations of fixtures alongside manufacturer, model, mode and patch information.
