Comprehensive lighting control app for the Mac
Right off the bat, the first thing you need to know about Lightkey is the fact it comes with support for a wide array of USB-DMX interfaces from a large array of manufacturers, such as DMXking, ENTTEC, and Eurolite, and it can also work with Ethernet-DMX interfaces like Art-Net and E-1.3.
Another noteworthy thing is the fact that Lightkey works with almost any fixture ranging from PARs, moving heads, scanners, blinders, lasers, LED fixtures, strobes, and fog machines that support DMX.
Its well-designed interface makes arranging and controlling fixtures seem like a walk in the park
Before we get to the advanced stuff, you should also know that Lightkey features a very intuitive interface that’s specially optimized for Retina displays and the usage in dark environments, with supported full-screen mode, adaptive background color, and user-friendly layout.
A worth mentioning feature is Lightkeys integrated visual editor that makes it as easy as possible for you to arrange your fixture’s physical locations and to add rectangles, ovals, lines, and trusses. What’s more, you can easily resize and rotate LED strips and matrices, and take advantage of the visual representations for pan/tilt angles, color and light intensity, focus and zoom, iris, shutter/strobe, and prism movements.
It makes your work as a LJs or light set designer a little bit easier
Last but not least, chances are you will also enjoy the fixture editor that makes it possible for you to take advantage of 200 fixture profiles, and easily create, track, import, export and share fixture profiles with just a few mouse clicks.
