QuickShow is a complete laser control system including both the QuickShow software and your choice of laser control hardware (either the FB3QS or FB4 ƒ?? The FB3QS is a convenient USB based hardware, and the FB4 is more advanced network hardware). The QuickShow software comes with nearly 2,000 pre programed cues already included. And our Quick Tools make designing custom beam effects, graphics, text, animations, abstracts, and timeline based laser shows easier than ever before. Whether you're a new to lasers or a seasoned professional you can get amazing results in just minutes. If you want to create stunning laser light shows without spending a fortune, then QuickShow is the answer.
Whether you are new to lasers, or have years of experience, QuickShow adapts to your level so you can create stunning shows right out of the box. The system comes standard with your choice of hardware, and you can select between the standard FB3QS USB based hardware, or FB4 network based hardware (which can also be configured with optional DMX or USB daughterboards).When using QuickShow, all you have to do is click on cues or press keyboard keys, to display content in real time. And QuickShow comes standard with nearly 2000 pre-loaded graphics, animations, beam effects and abstracts.But there is far more power in QuickShow than simply triggering cues. QuickShow also features our unique QuickTools, which allow you to create custom content (such as text, graphics, logos, beam effects or complete timeline-based shows), in seconds.For example, the QuickShape tool makes it easy to create abstracts and beam effects (such as cones, fans, planes, etc.). And, for the ultimate in customization, use our advanced editors for professional-level features such as cue layering and sequencing, automatic beat triggering, timelines for syncing to pre-recorded music, triggering DMX channels, and controlling up to nine laser projectors. Example: Creating abstract shapes. You can instantly call up a pre-defined shape (cue frame), or create your own basic shapes using the QuickShape tool. You can also get even further control options, by using the Advanced Abstract editor. (Other QuickShow tools work in a similar way; for example, QuickText, QuickTrace, and QuickTargets.) For an instant show, just click on pre-defined cue frames:
Lets say you want to display a preset psychedelic abstract design. Click the ƒ??Abstracts 1ƒ?? tab on the main QuickShow screen. Youll see 60 cues; and each one contains an abstract design.As you move your mouse over the cues, the designs are animated on the computer screen. This lets you preview how theyll look on the laser projector. To display the cue you want, simply click the mouse, or press the keyboard key thats in the upper left corner. Instantly, the selected cue is displayed. It couldnt be easier. Add custom cues with QuickShape:
The next level is to make your own custom cues. For abstracts (as an example), use the QuickShape tool, which lets you adjust the most important parameters such as size, points color, and speed. For expert users, Advanced features give complete control:
QuickShow is the only laser software designed to be very easy from the start, yet powerful enough for truly professional shows.
FEATURES: QuickShow is a complete laser system. It is capable of graphics as well as beam effects. It has everything you need for a modern laser light show.
No dongles: Never worry about forgetting or losing a dongle. You can work on, and display, shows without needing a dongle.
Cues: Nearly 2000 graphics, animations, beam effects and abstracts are included.
Abstract frames: Make planetarium-style abstract shapes, such as flowers or spirograph geometric figures.
Live controls: For a cue or the entire display, adjust size, position, rotation angle, rotation speed, color, color cycling, scan speed and animation rate.
QuickTools for creation and editing: QuickText, QuickShape, QuickTrace, QuickTargets, QuickTimeline, QuickDMX.
Display methods: Single cue, multi-track cue, sequence cues, timeline show programming.
Display timing: Manual (mouse/keyboard), automatic to beat (BPM), autorun for sequences and timeline.
BPM methods: Timed, manual, or automatically triggers cues and effects to the beat of the music.
Preview: On-screen preview of all graphics and beams using Windows OpenGL.
Background work mode: Create/edit cues on-screen without affecting laser output. Only show your cues when you are done. The audience never sees your background work.
Autotrace bitmaps: Import GIF, JPG, BMP files and convert instantly to laser. Outline and centerline tracing modes.
Control DMX devices: Set up to 512 DMX channels per cue. Unlimited number of cues or ƒ??looksƒ??.
Custom effects: Apply one or more effects to a cue, a sequence or a timeline event. Effects include colors (preset and changing), pulse/flash/strobe, trace, chop, ripple, mirror, double, scroll, rock, throb, zoom and bounce.
Projector correction and zones: Full geometric correction for off-axis scanning. HIt multiple screens from one projector, using projection zones (cues are positioned and scaled to appear in part of the scan area).
