Software - New License

Our Light-O-Rama software suite is the key to turning your dreams of creating a synchronized light show into a reality. It all begins in the Preview Editor of the LOR S5 Sequencer, where you'll use our simple and intuitive interface to design your layout, draw your props, and easily make changes and additions as you grow year after year. Once you've put all of your props in place, you'll use the Sequencer itself to let your imagination run free and create one-of-a kind "sequences" for your home or venue, using any song you choose. Start by using one of our many audio wizards (like the beat, tapper or VU wizard) to create your timings so that your effects can be perfectly in sync with the music, or just create a basic fixed grid if you only need to create a simple animation. Then, choose from a variety of effect options for standard lights ("AC Channels"), colors and intensities for dumb and smart pixel lights, or tap into our built-in motion effect generator with the Pro license to create thousands of unique effects for your smart pixel props. Not interested in creating your own sequences? Don't worry - we have an entire store of light shows for you to choose from just in case.

After you've created (or purchased) all of your sequences, you'll head to our Show Editor and Schedule Editor to create your playlist and schedule for the season. You can choose to play your show in a loop (with special startup, shutdown, or background sequences), or set your sequences to play when triggered by motion detectors, switches, or other devices so that you can let your audience interact and feel like they're a part of the show. If you don't want to dedicate a computer to running your schedule, no problem, just use the Light-O-Rama Hub to write your playlist to an SD card for use with one of our Showtime Directors - push the card in then sit back and watch your shows play all season long.

If you need more help understanding which license level to purchase or the basics of working with our system, take a look at the table below or follow the "I'm New, What Do I Do?" guide under the "Getting Started" tab on our main website. If you're planning to use smart pixels, the Pro license level is the way to go. For more information about our software suite, you can read more in depth about feature options on our website or watch video tutorials online.
