A powerful and user-friendly show controller for your Mac that enables you to create rich multimedia designs for various live performances and installations
QLab is a streamlined and intuitive macOS application that provides the required tools and features to create complex designs that can bring your audio and video content to life.
Versatile and user-oriented show control
QLab’s user-oriented interface helps you design and handle your multimedia content from within a smooth-running and personalizeable workspace that allows you to manage audio, video, MIDI, OCS and more.
QLab comes with numerous building blocks, also known as “cues”, that can help you design your stunning multimedia performance with just a few mouse clicks. Once you dragged and dropped your files you can start adding commands to fade in and fade out the volume, animate videoclips and apply various video and audio effects.
User-definable scripts and numerous video and audio effects
After getting familiar with the basics, you can step up your game and become a power user by using complex features like scripting, multi-projector edge blending, video corner pinning and audio localization. What is more, you can build multi-computer designs and send commands to multiple QLab systems connected to the same local network.
When you are happy with your Cue List, you can give it a try and hit the “Go” button to preview your show. Thanks to the Warnings panel you can check your list and view all encountered issues.
Support for Blackmagic device input, as well as various types of video surfaces and a host of other similarly powerful tools
QLab comes with support for 48 output and 24 input audio channels, intuitive audio waveform editing, customizable playback rate with pitch adjustment, video and audio faders, animation tools, Matrix mixer, audio and video effects, Syphon integration, keystone correction and corner pinning.
You can also overlay titles, use live video input from various devices, including Blackmagic devices, handle multiple video surfaces, apply fade curves, slice files, use markers and use external video effects.
What’s New in QLab Pro 4.1.5
- Additional compatibility when importing shows created in Go Button 3.1 and newer.
- A “Reset Origin” button in the surface editor, shown when there is no video license installed.
- Workspaces now respond to the new AppleScript commands:movePlayheadUp, movePlayheadDown, movePlayheadUpASequence, movePlayheadDownASequence
- Group cues now respond to the new AppleScript commands:expand and collapse. (Which changes their displayed state in the cue list.)
- Improved filtering for the Art-Net Lighting Interface preference to avoid confusing USB DMX devices with Art-Net devices.
- Removed the option to hold down the shift key to insert new cues before instead of after selection. This feature interfered with existing workflows in a number of cases, and caused more trouble than it was worth.
- Don’t lose edits in certain inspector text views (Script, OSC, MIDI SysEx, etc) if switching focus to another application.
- When viewing a cue list in a separate window, resizing the “number” or “target” column will now stick.
- Some cases where the “move to next/previous cue sequence” commands would not do the right thing.
- A bug that prevented being able to set the current playback time on a Text cue in the Active Cues List.
- Don’t allow dragging a cue or a file on to a cue list or cue cart, thus potentially retargeting every cue in the list or cart.
- Don’t show the “loaded” status icon if a cue is broken.
- A bug in the OSC “/patchList” command that caused QLab Remote to show the audio slider “live” status on the wrong audio channels if an audio patch used customized Device Routing.
- A bug that caused cues that should not respond to a given OSC command to return an invalid response when that command was sent to multiple cues at once.
- An issue that caused Audio cues to drop samples when started using the Cart play button or the the Time & Loops inspector tab “Preview” button.
- A bug where QLab would beachball when viewing a cart with many cues in it in a separate window.
- A bug that would cause the inspector to show the wrong cue if you clicked with the mouse to change the selection while in show mode and then switched to edit mode. (Yes, it’s…sort of confusing. But now:fixed.)
- Video surfaces with active Syphon output will now properly publish changes to the surface name.
- Various additional bug fixes, some which prevent crashes.
