With the introduction of the START view, the SETUP and PRODUCTION views become dedicated to your open show:

  • The Shows panel in START view shows a list of your local shows

  • The Launch panel in SETUP and PRODUCTION only shows levels and control panels of the open show

  • The SETUP view needs an open show. Changes made in this view are stored in the open show

  • The PRODUCTION view needs a running level. Changes made in this view are stored in the linked project
