Visualizer orientation

Post by mbergen » Tue Jul 30, 2019 10:46 pm

I have zero experience with visualizers and have a couple of questions.

Where is the audience in relationship to the visualizer?
Be gentle with me, after 50 years of playing live, I'm still trying to remember where 'Up Stage, Down Stage, Stage Right, and Stage Left are in the real world.

Are there any icons/images that can be added to the visualizer to represent musicians?

Can we change the physical representation of the fixture? I have a Blizzard Torrent F3 and just can’t get it to point it n the right direction.

Hi Mitchell,

This is actually a great question. I've been laying out stuff with the front of the stage oriented to the top of the screen. I'm not entirely sure it matters as long as all your orientations are consistent.

Maybe somebody else can chime in here with a more definitive answer.
