Modifying Quasar fixtures within the EOS Fixture library.

In an effort to keep showfile size to a minimum and facilitate rapid transfer over network, Quasar has created fixtures in 1-pixel and 48-pixel mode. The following guide is for EOS users needing to modify the profile for different pixel counts.

Open the showfile that will be used. 

If the Quasar fixtures aren’t in the fixture library they can be downloaded from the website
