    VenueMagic has enhanced the fixture override feature for its family of Show Control platforms. Combining live hardware control with VenueMagic’s ability to pre-program show elements, fixture override allows users to take real-time control of their VenueMagic-controlled show using hardware such as DMX lighting consoles, MIDI controllers, or VenueMagic’s built-in Virtual Control Surface. Fixture override works by disabling any pre-programming – from a fixture to a timeline – that a user chooses to control in real-time. Users can take control of… View this post
