The Magic Bullet Part I: The Hardware

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

luckydave — projection designer, QLab support ace, and our local video guru — talks us through his optimization process for video playback. In this post I will discuss video design workflows and the strategies I’ve found that work well with QLab (and most other show control software). I’ll start with two very important axioms: There [...]

I’ve also dropped one or two seeds of information into the [...]

Major changes have been made to the Fade Cues, as well as some revisions to the interface. The changes to the Fade Cues require you to recreate fades in old workspaces. [...]

Sunday, December 11th, 2005

The main body of documentation has been drafted, excepting the examples section and a more complete list of troubleshooting tips. The next release of QLab will include this documentation from the Help menu. To build these docs I’ve set up a handy makefile and a couple of shell scripts, so I only have to maintain [...]
