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 which means that the effects will change in real-time as you edit the parameters.

Also on the Control Page are editable OSC mappings. Click the Edit OSC Mappings button to map controls to OSC.

From there, if you press the Learn button, the Lightform device will accept the next incoming OSC message and that message will be used to control the function.

If you'd like to trigger particular slides, set the mappings for "next slide" and "previous slide," as well as "slide index," where you can send the slide index number directly. For instance, 0.0 = first slide, 1.0 =second slide, and so on.
