Control Page

The Control Page lets you check on and control your Lightform device. If you have a project already running on your device, this is where you would come to control the project.

In this article:

  1. Device Control
  2. Project Control

Device Control

On the left of the Control Page is information about your Lightform device. You can change the device to any other device that is on the same network as your computer. When you change devices in the Control Page, the device in the Design Page isn't altered. So, you can also control a different device than the one you scanned with.

Live Effects & OSC Mappings

When you publish your project, any Live Effects (Labs feature) from your project run in real-time on the Lightform device. These Live Effects have adjustable parameters in the right side of the Control Page. This means that the effects will change in real-time as you edit the parameters. Also in the Control Page are editable OSC mappings. Click the Edit OSC Mappings button to map controls to OSC. If you press the Learn button, the Lightform device will accept the next incoming OSC message and that will be used to control the function.
