This lighting control app for DMX devices leaves nothing to be desired: it is just as suitable for party use as for concert or theater performance.
The app is aimed at both beginners, who are taking their first DMX steps, and demanding users. Therefore, the app is very clearly and logically structured, so that even inexperienced users can quickly find their way around. At the same time, Light Captain offers many solutions that also make the work of professionals easier and enable more complex lighting situations.

The app is suitable for all types of spotlights: White light spotlights, colorful LED spotlights, compact lighting systems of all kinds, lighting effects, or moving lights. Even the DMX protocols of show lasers or multi-effects can be mapped.
To operate the app as a lighting controller, the Eurolite freeDMX interface is required.

For beginners and professionals:
In the first section (Chases), users who want to use different lighting scenes and chases for parties or concerts will feel most comfortable. Chases can be controlled either by adjusting the speed or by music control. Advanced users will prefer the second section, which also allows individual programming of cues and scenes with individual fade times.
A password-protected mode allows operators to recall and adjust lights only, but not change programs or shows. Light Captain is therefore also suitable for installations and clubs where the lights are pre-programmed and need to be operated by different people without sources of error.

A large and constantly growing library of fixtures already offers many models pre-programmed. Creating other fixtures is just as easy. For professional requirements, values can also be restricted or default values assigned and the individual positions of the color and gobo wheels can be defined. "Lamp on/off" commands for discharge lamps are also easy to assign and recall later.

Light Captain can inherently control four color segments on each fixture, each with up to 8 basic colors. No matter if KLS system, LED bar with 4 segments, or wash light with four rings, everything can be easily created and adjusted. For color effects, there is a separate effect section with 6 pre-programmed effects, which can also be modified in the expansion stages.

For moving lights, there is a 16bit capable control. In addition to positioning, there is an effects unit that can be used to create motion effects quickly and effectively. Another control level is used to adjust gobos, prisms, zoom, focus, etc.

Eight Freepatch controls can be freely assigned. Even complex multi-effects or show lasers can be sensibly created here.
Frequently used settings can be stored on pre-cues and called up again and again. There are 15 general memory locations, 15 memory locations that store color values, and 15 memory locations that store position values.

Theater mode (only available in the Full version) allows you to control your lights in programmed shows and performances. It allows you to save scenes in a specific order and then have them play during the performance.
