This is a newbie question:

Is there a topology where you can design / test your light setup on a software like QLC+ and then copy/stream it to controller for playing it in production

a) Is this real, or am I just making it
b) what would l need, software, usb to dmx dongles, lighting controllers, cables? What else

Thanks

A transfer from one controller to another is possible. However it’s wonky if the software and controller aren’t compatible.

IE if you built a show in HOG4PC and imported it into a Hog Console.

ETC , MA , Martin , Jands etc etc.

All have a pc version.

You can use Visualization Software to view things from any of those software packages as well. They cost money though and require some 3d or vwx skills.
