Lighting Application Suite 7.0

The e:cue Lighting Application Suite is a collection of software applications used to program the most creative lighting designs. The Lighting Application Suite includes innovative and intuitive tools to design simple to complex lighting and video shows, position lighting fixtures in a project plan, and configure e:cue and external devices in the control system. In addition to that, you can also program special lighting effects, video-to-light pixel mapping, visualization of the lighting installation, and special triggering and automation features.

  • Program precision timing of lighting scenes - Precisely, define transitions between cues, wait times, and fade in/out times, to the millisecond, for the perfect lighting show.
  • Configure 1:1 pixel mapping of video content - Instantly map each video pixel to each LED node for video-to-lighting installations.
  • Preview lighting projects with Imagine - Preview your project using the built-in, DirectX 2D visualizer or use the Imagine software tool to preview the lighting show in 3D.
  • Arrange lighting fixtures in your project plan intuitively - Using the Patchelor tool, users can easily map the lighting fixtures using a background picture of the project for intuitive planning. The file generated by this powerful tool is later used by the software lighting designer tool and visualizer tool.
  • Advanced Remote Device Management - supporting full E1.20 RDM standard support.
  • Create complex shows with multiple videos, graphics and moving text with Emotion FX - Place, rotate and scale video, images and scrolltext dynamically incl. alpha channel, use transitions for videos, use imaging effects for videos and graphics, display mix full-screen on external systems.

  • Organize and group fixtures - Cluster fixtures and individual LEDs for easier access and management of large lighting installations with several sections. Users can name fixture groups for better organization and ease of programming.
  • Use the same lighting desk features on a PC - Familiar features used in lighting desks such as cues, cue lists, sub-masters, grandmasters, and faders make it easy for experienced programmers and lighting designers to learn e:cue software and use the same features on a PC and on the Lighting Control Engine.
  • Create animations using Wizards - Easily generate chasers, dynamic scrolling text, graphic animations, and map video content using software wizards.
  • Program time and date triggers - Use specific date and time triggers in three calculation modes to start lighting shows based on sunrise, sunset, specific holidays including full support for daylight savings functionality and other time-related triggers.
  • Use the Sequencer to compose shows with a visual timeline - The Sequencer, as an intuitive timeline sequencing tool, displays video as single frames and audio data as a waveform, and can record manually evoked events.
  • Combine functional and creative lighting - Use intelligent DMX512 and DALI lighting control in one application, with a single graphical user interface over mobile devices.
  • Control large numbers of DMX512/RDM channels and pixels - Design simple to complex lighting shows requiring control of up to 65,536 DMX512/RDM channels up to 25,000 RDM fixtures or control up to 750,000 RGB pixels with Emotion FX via e:net and Butler DMX512/RDM output devices.
  • Integrate Input/Output signals for external triggering - Allows integration of external control devices through various protocols to initiate various functions in the software.

Set up a remote, user-oriented application interface with the Action Pad - Access the Lighting Application Suite remotely through a wide range of different devices: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or PC browser (Explorer, Firefox or any other browser with Flash support).
