Plot Panel

The Plot Panel is the place where you put fixtures to describe your light environment. A plot can handle only 1 universe, so 512 channels.

Usine can handle several plots at the same time. Each plot is calculated independently and is associated to an Artnet Universe or an USB device.

Displays all the DMX channels used in the plot.
