Welcome to Sunlite
Thank you for your interest in the Sunlite control software.
Our User Manual is divided into the following chapters:
1. Welcome to Sunlite
Quick start guide, Overview
2. Basic Programming
3. Intermediate Programming
4. Advanced Programming
5. General Settings
In this manual, the most elemental concepts of lighting control are presented early on, followed by increasingly more complicated software tools and functions as the manual progresses. Though our software is designed to be simple to use and intuitive to learn, we strongly recommend beginner users to read this manual consecutively, starting from the first chapters and so on. Intermediate and advanced programmers will usually skip through sections without a problem.
This first chapter gives users a quick overall look at our software (essential if you are impatient like most of us). We will walk you through the installation process for the software and the interface drivers. Then we will play around with our preprogrammed DEMO shows. At the end of this chapter, we will quickly show you how to add your own fixtures into the software, just in case you cannot wait to test your own lighting fixtures.
The second chapter will show you the most elemental programming tools within the software. By the end of this chapter, you should be able to program a decent looking show very quickly.
The third and the fourth chapter describe more advanced (not necessarily complicated) software tools. This knowledge, along with a little practice, will allow you to create almost any lighting scene/effect your fixtures can handle.
The fourth chapter briefly describes peripheral software tools in the Sunlite Suite package, such as the 3D visualizer (Easy View), a profile/library editor (Scanlibrary), a music/video/lighting timeline synchronization tool (Easy Show), and downloading scenes/shows into the internal memory of the electronic interface (Easy Stand Alone).
The fifth chapter include several starting parameters the user should be familiar with, options for the windows management and Backup/Technical support
Finally, you will find appendices that include a DMX512 review, MIDI review, list of available accessories, and a troubleshooting guide.
