QLab is a streamlined and intuitive Mac OS X 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.
- Add support for the HapQ codec
- A case where using Blackmagic camera inputs could cause QLab to crash
- The mechanism to watch for changes in mask images will now update the surface appropriately if the mask file changes
- A crash when updating the light dashboard
- A bug in the DMX Status window that meant that it would often not display the final values of a light fade
- MIDI triggers for Light cues will now only be captured after you’ve pressed the "capture" button, and not any old time you just happen to be looking at the Triggers tab of the inspector
- Clarified the warning message if QLab is unable to initialize OSC ports at launch; now includes an explanation of the most likely cause (two copies of QLab running)
- Clarified language for the "Close Without Running Cue" option when closing a workspace that has a closing cue
- Text edits (e.g., in the Script cue, but also in any text field) will now always be saved if the workspace window loses focus; 6his prevents losing edits to a cue in cases like switching to another window to refer to API documentation
- The AppleScript "play count" property for the Video cue
- Audio licenses now properly unlock certain audio features on a video cue if a Video license is not present
- A bug that allowed the OSC "/renumber" method to be performed even though a workspace was in Show Mode
