In this section, the basic information of a GDTF file is defined.

Hint:
The GDTF file name is structured Manufacturer@Name@optional Comment.gdtf
  1. Enter the Long name of the fixture type.
  2. Enter the Short name of the fixture type.
Hint:
The Short name should be as short as possible, but precise enough to describe the fixture type.
The short name is the name used in a consoles patch screen:
  1. Enter the Manufacturer of the fixture type. The Manufacturer is used as part of the GDTF file name.
  2. The Fixture Type ID (GUID) is automatically filled by the GDTF Builder.
  3. To link to a referenced fixture, enter the Unique number (GUID) in the field Linked GDTF.
    In this way, you can refer one fixture to the other, for example the original manufacturer file.
