How Do I Make a swirl effect with moving wash fixtures

Hi All,

I have 6 Rush MH6 fixtures configured 3 on one truss and 3 on another. How do I go about creating a swirl affect where all the fixtures move together but staggered to create an effect like water flowing around in a sink/basin going down the drain hole. So it would start with a wider circle and gradually get smaller and smaller?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

In your first cue first point all your fixtures at one point on the stage this will be the center point of your swerl and the base point of your effect,

Then go to smart fx, and make a circle fx, adjust the size and speed as needed,

Now make a second cue in in this cue take the size of that effect to zero over 5 seconds for example, then make a follow on cue that stops the effect

Hope this helps
