The 3rd generation of our DMX software suite is now available. Sunlite Suite 3 offers exciting new features like: new GUI, new cycle window, new 3D visualizer...
We've listened to customer feedback over the past few years and have created a brand new graphical interface which is more comfortable to use in dark environments and gives quicker access to commonly used functions. The Suite 3 graphics include high resolution icons, the return of the menu bar and more zoom options allowing optimisation for touch screens.
The unique page concept has been at the heart of Sunlite since the very first product over 15 years ago. Each lighting fixture type has it‘s own page which is built automatically depending on the fixture personality (SSL2 profile). Quick access switches are created to call presets such as color and gobo. dynamic moving and color changing effects are automatically built. XY and color mixing components allow for quick control of your lighting fixtures, without the need to program anything!
The button editor is your lighting design toolbox. Here is where the lighting programming is made. Lighting fixtures can be controlled with channel faders or using the preset window for quick and easy access to presets such as pan/tilt and color mixing. Scenes can be built with one of the available tools including EasyStep, EasyTime, DMX Input Recorder and the Followspot Calibrator.
Easily create stunning effects with the EasyTime editor. Drag and drop color mixing, Pan/Tilt, chaser, wave and gradient effects. The matrix effects can be placed onto a virtual canvas called a RECT. All effects on a RECT are applied to the lighting fixtures underneath which makes this the perfect tool for pixel mapping. The matrix effects include picture, video and text mapping.
A Cycle consists of scene and switch buttons which can be viewed as a cue-list or on a timeline. Cycles can be recorded in real-time, or scenes can be dropped onto the timeline. Within a Cycle, scenes can be triggered by time, by a GO button, or synchronised with MIDI Time Code. New to Suite 3 - synchronize Audio and Video with your scenes and automate the dimmer, speed, size and phase to integrate a full multimedia show with ease.
Palettes are available for positions, colors, beams or any other channel. You can save a channel value into a palette and then use the same palette in many different scenes. If you need to update the position or color of a fixture, simply update the palette and all the corresponding scenes will be updated automatically.
Position the beams of fixtures into a fan pattern using the new fanning curves tool.
New to Suite 3 - setting the new Multiply option on a Switch allows for Submaster dimmers to be created. When this option is set, the value of channels used in the Switch will be multiplied with the current DMX level.
The console is Sunlite's remote control hub. Load up a design and link a MIDI, DMX or EasyRemote controller with almost everything in Sunlite Suite 2. The console can be used to trigger scenes, change the dimmer, speed, size and phase of a scene, control Pan/Tilt, set palettes and more.
Take full control of your lighting from your smartphone or tablet, whether it is to position your lighting on the stage or to design a simple user interface for a bar owner. Easy Remote allows you to remotely control Sunlite Suite 2 over WiFi from your iPhone, iPad or Android device. The Easy Remote app is available for free and can be used on many devices simultaneously allowing you to build a full wireless control solution!
Build your show in 3D. Visualize light beams, colors, gobos and beam effects. Easy View 3D allows you to import and position lighting fixtures and objects. The real-time rendering engine allows for programming to be made away from the stage, or to impress clients with 3D videos and 2D plot prints.
