Fixture definitions are used to map generic functions of a fixture like intensity, pan, tilt etc. to the specific DMX channels and values.
You can create your own fixture definitions to suit your needs, but there are a number of ready-made definitions (624 at the moment) listed here!
QLC+ has a graphical “fixture creator” program.
