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 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 Pixel Editor allows you to create lighting effects for your sequences in a visual way.|
|•||The Show Editor is used to package sequences together into shows.|
|•||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.|
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.
Please note that the Light-O-Rama software package must be installed on a local drive; it is not supported when installed on a network drive.
