Hallo @all,
I'm new to the QLC+ and come from myDMX and LumiDesk. So first I have to transfer all my SSL2 fixture definitions into the QLC+ format.
Unfortunatelly it's a lot of work, because many of my fixtures are not (or not completely) represented in the database.

Theferfore my first question is, if there is a tool available for transforming SSL2 fixture representations (mininum roughly the channels, DXM ranges, textual descriptions) into the QXF format?
It would spend a lot of time, because some of my moving video beamers have up to 54 channels with a lot of channels which have possibly 50 to 200 DXM ranges per each. Typing it manually again (I did it already for SSL2) would be a nightmare.

Some of my fixtures have a lot of channels which are all of type "Effect". Is it possible to give effect channels individual icons (instead of the star) for an easier distingushing the one from the others, e.g., in the simple desk view?

Thanks a lot for your quick answer.

It's not possible to set custom icon for effects channel.

There is no import from SSL2 as far as I know. Quick search on the internet tells me that it's an undocumented binary format, so unless there is editor that can export it to something readable,
there's little hope for converter.

There is import from Avolites D4 format. You may find a definition for your fixtures on the Avolites site.

Can you tell us what model/make are your fixtures?
