Open the curtains
QLC+ has been designed around users needs, feedbacks and ideas. A major use case has been identified in
the theatre workflow, where there are actors on a stage, performing a sequence of acts.
In lighting terms, this method of work needs the possibility to quickly set up scenes (also called cues in theatres), test them, modify them on the fly, and finally play them flawlessly.
Scenes and channel groups
Chasers and Cue lists
The most appropriate function that QLC+ offers for reproducing sequential scenes (or cues) is named Chaser.
DMX dump and live editing
Did you really think that was all ? Not at all !
QLC+ goes beyond the basic concept of designing and performing live.
It allows you to work also on the borderline between the two worlds.
With the DMX dump functionality you can save an instant shot of a scene you just created in live mode.
A scene created in this way can be automatically added to an existing chaser, thus appearing straight into your Cue list, or can be attached to an existing Virtual Console widget like a button or a slider.
The live editing functionality, instead, allows you to tweak your scenes and chasers during a live performance. For example if you realized your moving heads are not pointing the right direction, you can easily modify their position by live editing the function where they are used.
