Tools: Position

The Position panel works on the currently selected light, effect generator or gazer, as shown on the panel’s title bar. For example, if you click the button 1 in the Lights panel, the text “Light 1” will appear on the Position panel’s title bar. If no element (light, effect generator or gazer) is selected, the Position panel remains idle.

To move a selected element (light, effect or gazer) around the avatar nearest to the PhotoStage Pro Control Box, use the Intelligent Position buttons. These buttons show a grey human torso plus a yellow circle, indicating how the element is positioned when you click the button. The available options are, from left to right and top to bottom: Right, Left, Back, Front, Back Up, Front Up, Above, Feet, Centre, Closer and Further.

You can also move a selected element (light, effect or gazer) using the XYZ coordinates:

  1. Select the distance the selected element will move by clicking one of the distance buttons: 1.00, 0.25 or 0.05, which correspond to 1 meter, 25 cm and 5 cm, respectively.
  2. Click the minus and plus icons on the X, Y or Z buttons to decrease or increase the element’s X, Y or Z coordinates.

Tools: Colour

The Colour panel works on the currently selected light or effect, as shown on the panel’s title bar. For example, if you click the button 1 in the Lights panel, the text “Light 1” will appear on the Colour panel’s title bar. If no element (light or effect) is selected, the Colour panel remains idle.

Once you have selected an element, use the predefined colour buttons to set its colour. The available options are: (top row, from left to right) Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Grey, White; (bottom row) Dark Red, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Dark Cyan, Dark Magenta, Dark Yellow, Dark Grey and Black.

To create Custom Colours by adjusting the RGB (red, green, blue) values:

  1. Click one of the percentage buttons (20%, 5% and 1%) to select the specific amount that a colour will change.
  2. Click the minus and plus icons on the RGB buttons to decrease or increase the RGB values by the selected amount.
  3. The colour changes will apply to the selected light or effect as you adjust the RGB values.

Note: the 20%, 5% and 1% percentages correspond to 0.2, 0.05 and 0.01 colour units, respectively.
