    Default Looking for cheap laser software

    I currently have ishow which I bought off Fleebay and I can not get the software to work. I just get a blinking dot. no X or Y scanning.

    I am looking for a cheap software program that I can do text with. I would like to have different messages play in a loop on a wall for my partys.

    I am currently looking at pangolin quick show with flashback3 controller for $599. Is there anything out there that is cheaper? Should I go cheaper?

    Thanks in advance.

    [QUOTE=laser777;161374]I currently have ishow which I bought off Fleebay and I can not get the software to work. I just get a blinking dot. no X or Y scanning.

    Sounds like a wiring problem, ie single ended controller and differential input scanners.
    If you decide its not, you can do well with Pangolin or LDS with a Riya.

    Thanks steve. How can I fix this problem?

    I can tell that the interface is working with the laser, the beam will blink at different rates when I change the size of the animation or change the scan rate. But its nothing more than a blinking dot. No X or Y scanning at all.

    Would you be able to call me to talk me through it?

    Pangolin QuickShow is very capable for live performance.

    There are other options though as other have mentioned although a lot of people on here (including me) swear by Pangolin Products.

    The Quick Show website is here:

    http://www.pangolin.com/QS/

    I can't put a screenshot up of QS 2.0 for you as its not yet released and I don't want to disclose anything I shouldn't. There are some screenshots on the official web page and you could try pming Bill for a demo.

    There is a new version of the FB3 hardware coming, which Bill has previously mentioned, FB3-QS.
