Streaming Preview

Lightform Creator will stream your cursor position and masks that you create in the artboard to the LF1. Streaming to the LF1 provides immediate feedback and preview on your scene in response to actions made within Lightform Creator. 

To activate streaming, click the Stream button on the Toolbar. Lightform Creator will stream the following to your LF1 in order to preview these projected onto your scene in real-time:

  1. Cursor Position: Lightform Creator streams your cursor position on the artboard as a full screen crosshair at the correlated position on your real-world scene
  2. Masks: Lightform Creator streams masks as precise vectorized objects and streams any real-time updates to them (i.e., mask edits & moves)

Cursor Position

Lightform Creator will stream your cursor position on the artboard to the LF1. The cursor position will be projected as a yellow, full screen crosshair precisely at the correlated position on your real-world scene.

The cursor will always be streamed as the front layer, above the mask stream.

Masks

Lightform Creator will stream all of the masks you create in the artboard to the LF1. The masks will be projected in white precisely at their relative locations on your real-world scene. 

Creating Masks

When creating masks with the Pen and Shapes tools, your masks will be streamed and updated in real-time in projected space.

When creating masks with the Brush, Quick Select, or Magic Wand tools, your masks during creation will not be streamed and updated in real-time in projected space. Instead, your finished masks (after clicking Done) will be streamed in projected space.

Editing/Moving Masks

When editing or moving any of your masks, the edits and movements will be streamed and updated in real-time in projected space.
