Fixtures with Asymmetric Beams Render Round


  • When patching a fixture with an asymmetrical beam such as a ColorSource Cyc or PAR Can, the beam in Augment3d renders round instead.
  • There is no option for showing a CYC adapter on a ColorSource Spot or Source 4 LED fixture.
  • Desire and Selador Classic fixtures do not have options for linear diffusion.

Explanation of Issue

At initial release, Augment3d does not support visualizing asymmetrical beams. This is planned for a future version.


The closest workaround is to set the beam degree of the fixture to the closest round equivalent of the beam desired.  This is done in Patch and is a per-channel setting.
