The Light-O-Rama Software Package
|Top Previous Next|
The Light-O-Rama software package is a suite of programs, each helping with a different portion of computerized control of your lights to help build a dynamic display:
•The Control Panel runs in your system tray, and gives convenient access to control over your shows.
•The Sequence Editor is used to create, modify, and test sequences.
•The SuperStar Sequencer is a sort of front end to the Sequence Editor, used to create sequences visually rather than via a channels-versus-time grid.
•The Show Editor is used to package sequences together into shows.
•The Schedule Editor is used to schedule shows to play at certain times.
•The Simple Show Builder is an alternative to the Show Editor and the Schedule Editor. It is generally simpler to use, but less flexible.
•The Show Player monitors the schedule, and plays the scheduled shows at the appropriate times.
•The Comm Listener is used by other programs (such as the Sequence Editor and Show Player) to communicate with DMX devices.
•The Network Preferences program allows you to configure the comm networks that your computer will use to communicate with your controllers.
•The Hardware Utility can be used to test your controllers, and to download sequences to them to be used in standalone mode.
•The ServoDog Utility can be used to configure Light-O-Rama ServoDog controllers.
•The Visualizer can be used to give a visual representation on your computer screen of how your lights will look when a sequence or your show plays.
•The Verifier can be used to check for certain types of problems with your Light-O-Rama configuration, schedule, shows and sequences.
•The Sequence Compressor can be used before shows to make sure that your compressed sequences are up-to-date.
•The Diagnostic is a troubleshooting tool that displays various information about your Light-O-Rama configuration.
•The Offline Registration Utility can be used to register Light-O-Rama on a computer that does not have access to the internet.
Additionally, several add-ons can be used with Light-O-Rama (these are not supplied as a part of the Light-O-Rama software package).
The Light-O-Rama software package must be registered with a valid license in order to use it to its full potential. There are several different possible license levels, each having different features available. Light-O-Rama can also be used unlicensed, in Demo mode, but you will not be able to actually control lights while in Demo mode.
