Software License Feature Comparison

Software License Feature Comparison

Which License Level Is Right For You?

Below is a comparison of all of the features our software has to offer. If you're planning on just using AC controllers or dumb RGB controllers, one controller equals one Unit ID. Smart RGB controllers (Pixie2, Pixie4, Pixie8, Pixie16 and the Pixcon16) each have multiple Unit IDs. (2, 4, 8, or 16 depending on the controller). You'll need the Pro license level to use any of our built in pixel Motion Effects.
