Fixtures in WYSIWYG cannot be controlled by Hog 4


Fixtures in WYSIWYG visualization software do not respond to Hog 4. The fixtures in WYSIWYG might look like they are receiving the wrong DMX values.

Description/Explanation of Issue

This issue might be caused by Hog 4 not running the visualizer stream, and the visualizer not being connected in the show file.
