Powerful theatre control for generic and moving lights, with a fast, easy to use interface.
For too long the creativity of lighting professionals has been stifled by the limitations and
excessive cost of high end lighting control. The Illusion has been designed to challenge
this status quo. Using leading edge technology, exceptional graphics and user definable
modes of operation, the Illusion performs as a fast, effective lighting tool.
The addition of moving light control software to the Illusion makes it an exceptionally powerful
controller with many features previously only found in more expensive consoles. The only limit
on the number of moving lights available is the 512 DMX channels available. Three high resolution
encoders allow for easy control of the moving light parameters.
To facilitate ease of programming the Illusion makes use of palettes or focus groups for each type
of LTP parameter. Building memories using palettes will ensure that changes to any palette are
tracked through to the associated memories.
Separate fade times can be set for parameters and for brightness channels allowing for exceptional
flexibility in replaying shows. To further facilitate programming the Illusion has a powerful effects
engine that allows for the creation of not only movement effects but also colour and beam effects.
The comprehensive library of fixtures available ensures that the user can program any moving light.
Fixture libraries are updated on a regular basis or it is possible to create your own unique fixture
personalities using a free software tool.
Programming moving lights is simple whether using the mouse and screen commands or using
command line syntax. With powerful editing tools the desk allows users to track changes to
memories forward and backwards or to change a single cue.
With 500 channels as standard, the Illusion features the phenomenally powerful Cueline system,
which gives instant and clear graphical representation of the cue list allowing easy visualisation,
operation and editing. The graphical user interface and memory stack are fully integrated.
Modifications in the memory stack automatically update the Cueline system and vice versa.
Using Cueline it is possible to create multipart cues that alter different parameters making the
playback of moving lights intuitive and simple.Clear front panel controls can be configured to suit
your preferred style of operation, with a choice of command line operation or full GUI. Powerful shortcuts,
associations and macros can be set up to aid the programming operation whilst flexible linking and
triggering operations make the replay of complex lighting sequences extremely simple.
Multi-part cues, linked submasters, follow-ons, audio effects, channel groups and full LTP channel
control can all be achieved without the need to search through endless menus or remember confusing
