Multi-part fixtures in future fixture editor?

I think I know the answer, but I just want to verify. Will we have ability to make/edit our own multi-part fixtures in the future fixture editor? That would be huge, actually. But I remember it being said in past versions there were technical difficulties that made that hard to implement.

It’s becoming more and more of a big deal because of all the manufacturers, many of them small niche ones, who are coming out with multi-element LED panel type fixtures.

Its not currently planned, other items have a higher priority at this time. We have a great library team who can implement this for you and enhance the library for everyone at the same time.

I’m going to request a bunch of stuff this weekend then. On the good side, these profiles are already, sort of, in the libraries. It’s Quasar Science’s R2 series instruments. Both the current releases version of Onyx (.1193) and Atlabase have these, BUT, only in their single pixel modes. The lights are capable of multiple pixel modes (depending on length). Creating multipart fixtures will only involve duplicating the existing profiles across multiple pixels and doing whatever is done to integrate that as a single profile.

Question: since this is something we will be using very soon, should I make separate fixture requests for the current Onyx library and the beta Atlabase library?

Yes.
There are 2 separate links, on the this Onyx Support page
