An Editable Database
Any fixture you add to your Favorites will be editable. This is also a great starting place to create your own fixtures if they're not already included in the database. To add your own fixtures to the db, you will need the lamp candela and fixture beam/field angles. This information is common on most spec sheets by the manufacturers online.
Access the manufacturers website by touching on their respective URL link within the App.
