uber_tool_artboards_Group.png Select Grid

By default, the SELECT task displays your lights.  The Grid consists of cells, each one representing a single light in the show.  Each cell can have varying amounts of information depending on the zoom level uber_tool_artboards_zoom_+.png describing the current state of that light. You may see as few as 10 lights or as many as 100. This is what 60 lights look like in the SELECT task.




There may be fewer lights shown if you've applied a uber_tool_artboards_filter.png Filter. Here are the details shown in each cell at the highest zoom level.




1:  Light Number.  The number in the upper left hand corner of each cell identifies each light in the show.  The Light number is not the same as the light’s DMX address.  

2: Color Indicator.  For color-changing lights, the background of the circle provides an indication of the light’s current color.  If a gel has been associated with a traditional dimmer, the gel color will be shown.

3: Attribute Indicator.  Icons indicate whether Intensity uber_tool_artboards_Move_Int.png, Color uber_tool_artboards_Move_Col.png, Position uber_tool_artboards_Move_Pos.png or Shape uber_tool_artboards_Move_Shape.png attributes have recently changed, whether from manual manipulation in the CONTROL task or from running cues in Playlists.

4:  Light Name.  By default, the model of light that each cell represents appears in the lower right hand corner of each cell.  If a name has been assigned using SELECT | SETTINGS | PROPERTIES, that text will appear in place of the model.

5:  Intensity Level.  The current intensity of the light is shown as a percentage, in the lower left hand corner.  “FL” indicates the light is at full.  When no lights are selected and  uber_tool_artboards_info.png Information is activated, this number changes to the light’s DMX start address. With a light or multiple lists selected, pressing uber_tool_artboards_info.png will show more detail on what is controlling the lights' attributes.


The color used to display the light's intensity also provides information about where it was set from or why it changed.

6: Intensity Indicator.  The circular, colored line within each cell (red in the example above) provides a quick indication of the light’s current intensity.  The color also indicates how the intensity was set and if it’s currently changing. See Information for descriptions.

7:  Select Indicator.  The border around each cell turns red when the light has been chosen for programming. This icon captured.png shows how many lights are selected. If there is an # in this box, only one light is selected and the number is the Light's number.

8: Orientation Indicator.  For lights with position attributes, the triangular pointer at the center of the circle shows the direction the light is pointed.
