Cat Lighting Board
beta release 0.8.7
in French, please
White Cat is a new project of software for lighting in danse, theatre and concerts fields.
It is actually traditionnal lights oriented ( dimmers).
White Cat proposes:
-a theatre oriented design
-an electronic patch (512 gradas) with 16 customizable curves
-4 channel macros per channel
-a powerfull automations handler working inside the CueList, enabling encapsulating events such has audio, channel-time effects,call of many internal functions, chasers, etc....
-a 4x audio player to the stereo output
-48 faders of 6 docks, recordable on the fly (channels, memories, dynamicals contents...), with integrated times, cirves and LFOs. Faders are usable with mouse, midi, and maybe automated.
-several modes of calculation between faders ( substract, add, screen, exclusion)
-ability to create fader groups
-128 chasers of 24 tracks, for on the fly usage, by mouse or midi, build on music-sequencer's design
-a trichromy/quadrichromy wheel with 8 color-preset to handle RGB or RGBY traditionnal spots
-4 GridPlayers, enabling complexs lighting effects
-tracking video aka Air-Lighting to be use with any webcam
-built in Lighting Plot editor, enabling patching from plot
- drawing lights on stage in a performance with your iOs device
-ASCII Usitt export import , import of schwartzpeter shows
-PDF export of your show
-possibility to modify in stack channel and memories (wizard menu)
-a remote for iPod/Phone and iPad, based on the free app Fantastick
- Art-Net in and merging for multi-software use
-double dmx output ( usb + art-net) to remote other softs in art-net (Arkaos, VVVV )
-midi in and out ( remoted and remoting)
-evoluated midi mute for non motorized midi surfaces
-possibility to modifier in stack channel and memories (wizard menu)
-arduino communication: Duemillanove (log. 0.18), and UNO ( log 0.22), enabling you to connect easely to electronci devices, in usb, ethernet or RF ( jeenodes )
-retrolighting Midi feedback for Launchpad and others devices
-arduino serial communication built in, for easy remoting and receiving of electronics
-an complete set of sketches for the arduino, including art-net protocol
-a vvvv set of patches for lighting with a videoprojector
Dmx interfaces supported:
Art-Net protocol / Enttec Pro / Enttec Open / Velleman K8062 / Sunlite 8C / usbdmx512online.net
Beta Test ?
Downloadable exe are currently Beta.
WhiteCat is quickly evoluting, and is growing during shows creations and performances with audience.
It will surely answer the needs of any light people working in theatre and dance field.
WhiteCat is far more powerfull, rich and stable than Schwartzpeter. It answers a lot of software designing deadlocks that the black cat couldn't exceed. WhiteCat takes a lot of benefit of Schwartzpeter previous adventure.
For those who could be effrayed by beta-test term, you need to understand that WhiteCat needs your feedback and your time, to gain in power and easyness. It needs to be used by a lot of different people, with really different approachs, to grown up. Schwartzpeter and its concurrents are also beta-test.
Being beta-tester is simply help to make a software for everybody, a software that scape to its conceptor way of thinking.
Thanks to all WhiteCat beta-testers. It owes them already a lot.
