How to Create a Custom Fixture on Emphasis

To create a custom fixture on an Emphasis console you do not need to download a separate personality editor. There is a Fixture Creation Editor already installed on the Emphasis Server. Follow the instructions below to create a fixture personality.

  1. Boot the Emphasis Server up. The software will load and open a previously saved show.
  2. From here, click on [File], [Close]
