Lightform Labs is an extension of Lightform Creator that includes beta and experimental features.
These features are unsupported but we welcome bug reports and feedback, to help us continue to build the best software for projection mapping.

When the Live button is switched on, you have the ability to control the properties of the selected asset in real-time after the project has been published. Please note that you can only have one Live asset per slide. Read more about Live assets here.
