General Wedding preset?

I am using a mac to access this message board and was wondering if anyone would be willing to e-mail me the details of a general wedding preset for the XL2 since I cannot download the software for use. Thanks.

P.S. One for dark receptions would be nice as well. I use an on-camera NRG varalux light.

Thanks for the presets. We're going to check them out tomorrow in the daylight. One question, though--how do you translate your numeric coding? In a two choice category(such as normal/cine), I'm assuming you're using a binary code of 0 or 1. If on things such as color, you're saying 1 or -1 to say distance from center, right? But what about Knee (3 choices, you write 0) or other such multiple-choice sections. Can you explain your coding please?

Perhaps I'm not understanding your question. You can perform this preset on an XL2 in two ways.

1- Go into the preset menu (Manually) through the XL2

OR

2- Use the Blue Barn presets manager software (Free) and set via your PC - connected via FireWaire to your XL2

oops... just noticed that you are using a MAC. Not sure if Mac version of Blue Barn is available.
