ETC announces General Device Type Format (GDTF) Fixture Import for Eos Family

Posted September 29, 2023  ‐ Categories: GDTF

ETC announced support for Basic fixture import via General Device Type Format (GDTF) in the Eos v3.2.4. Details given in this dedicated article explain that the initial implementation will only import the DMX definition and for the time being will not import 3D models, gobo images, color definitions nor multicell fixtures, but 'GDTF imports will continue to improve in future releases with planned work and user feedback on the forums'. Eos has previously already been able to import MVR, so the possibility to use GDTFs is another enhancement for the Eos platform and also a great confirmation of success for GDTF and MVR.
