The Animation Effects System consists of a gobo (steel or glass) in the pattern slot of any spotlight and an Animation Motor Unit positioned in the color slot with an Animation Disc attached.
The Animation Discs are stainless steel discs that are 16.5" (42 cm) in diameter and are available in eleven different etched pattern designs.
The discs, being out of the focal plane, allows sharp focus on the gobo in the pattern slot while the rotating disc animates the effect of the gobo.
The Elliptical Breakup Animation Disc is designed to provide bi-directional two plane movement, similar to the Spiral Breakup, but with the added feature that the direction of movement varies as the disc revolves. This is specifically for snow or similar slow moving effects where flurries of movement would be expected.
Animation Discs avilable: Tangential Breakup, Radial Breakup, Spiral Breakup, Linear Breakup, Triangle Breakup, Cloud Breakup, Elliptical Breakup, Dot Breakup, Flicker Wheel, Coarse Radial Breakup and Coarse Tangential Breakup.
