Chris, FYI the thing with the cut outs for light passing through is not a GOBO, it is a COOKIE. A GOBO is solid and is for blocking light transmission (GOBO as in Go Between).

The real name of a cookie is a Cucoloris. Here is a link on how they are used.

The term gobo is commonly misused.  Actually a gobo (go between or go before optics) and a cookie are the same thing.  It is a flag that is used to block light.
