The DMX Chart Demo - Act 2
Act 2 demonstrates how The DMX Chart manipulates the data in the three spreadsheets, and The DMX Used Tab:
The Fixture Type Schedule Tab: which is a spreadsheet of all your DMX Fixture Types; Conventional and DMX Controlled.
The DMX Controlled Fixture Types Tab: which is a spreadsheet of just your DMX Controlled Fixture Types.
The Channel Check Tab: which is an interactive spreadsheet that is used for just channel checks.
The DMX Used Tab: a complete visual of all allocated data - DMX Controlled Fixture Types and Conventional Fixture Types within each universe.
The DMX Chart Demo - Act 3
Act 3 demonstrates how The DMX Chart has kept everything in the lighting world together, and in one place with:
The Work Notes Tab: Which is a place for all daily work notes, and work notes from channel checks.
The Que Sheets Tab: Which is a place for Lighting Que Sheets, Spotlight Que Sheets, and Deck Electrician Que Sheets.
The Focus Charts Tab: Which is a place to document your conventional focus positions.
The Vendor/Rental Gear Tab: Which is a place to keep your list of contacts, and your shows rental gear list.
The Paperwork Tab: generates paperwork for The Fixture Type Schedule, The DMX Controlled Fixture Types Tab, The Channel Check, a gobo list, a color cut list, a fixture count used in all shows which includes rentals, all work notes, custom scrolls used, spot color, 4x6 or 3x5 index cards for all positions, spot que sheets, lighting que sheets, deck electricians que sheets, and rental gear lists with any attached invoices.
