While the instrument plot shows the position of the instruments, it
provides no information about where the instruments should be
focused. Instead, a focus sheet is consulted. Focus sheets can
differ greatly, but in general most provide dimmer channel, focus
area and color for each instrument used in the plot. Focus sheets are
important so that the electrician's crew can focus the lighting
instruments without the presence of the lighting designer. Often,
fine adjustments must be made in the presence of the LD, but much can
be done from the focus sheet.
