    Hi, thank you for your post. I need to externally (remotely) (not from the LaserShowGen software) run the laser show and pause it. On/Off laser maybe. I need to do it from some physical port like USB. In LSX it is possible to do from Midi port. I can probably use USB relay to turn on and off the laser power, but affraid to spoil it fast.
    How about LaseShowGen? Maybe you know such option? Any ideas? Thank you

    There's no way to externally communicate with LSG other than to use keyboard buttons. So you could have a USB keyboard, or custom device that acts as a keyboard, to send button presses that starts, stops, pauses playback etc. There are also programs that can translate MIDI signals into such keyboard presses.

    Ok, from the latest manual I found, that this is Tab button. And it works. Thanks again

    Hi guys, the newest version of LaserShowGen Pro software includes this show by Jarek Kral! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gfA6702cmA


    LSG can export to .ILD if you want the raw files.

    Free version is very apreciated so people can check the software out too before they buy!
    I know im a beyond user (and it's what ill keep using) but this is great for things like the laserdock (without modification of an ilda port)

    First observation:
    Turning optimization in dac settings off doesn't allow you to set the lasers scanrate.. what scanrate does it run at?? I noticed setting fps results in changed scanrate behaviour but its a bit unclear

    For unoptimized files, LSG plays them with a constant frame rate rather than point rate. The point rate is set by the equation of frame rate times the number of points in the frame. F.ex. if you set FPS to 30, and the current frame is 1000 points long, it will play at 30*1000 = 30 000 pps.

    This is a bit different than how some other programs optimize the files with a variable frame rate and constant point rate instead. Once you find the right FPS it would look the same for ILDA files with only one frame, or with animations where each frame has a similar amount of points. Files that was optimized with a very variable frame size might experience some problems like flickering or warping, though. I have been planning on adding a way of playing with a constant point rate instead of frame rate in LSG eventually, but haven't gotten around to it.
