Talking to the Lights with Natural Language Control
Natural Language Control's objective is to provide an intuitive programming experience and a versatile control system that when played back can actually provide the operator information about the system it is controlling. Natural Language Control does this by porting the control to an 'abstract' layer. This has a number of benefits:
- The 'handles' you use to control LEDs and moving lights are more inline with what you would do to manipulate white light.
- The numbers and 'words' you use to build cues will actually mean something. You will have an idea of what you can do with the lights and what is on stage by reading the display.
- If you have mixed equipment, the methodology you use to communicate is consistent regardless of the protocols defined by the equipment manufacturers. The attribute controls are laid out the same for every and any light.
- Building a set of looks with one group of lights in your rig can be copied to another groups, regardless of what type of lights they are.
- The cues you have in your show file can be played back with any equipment allowing you to swap out gear at the last minute if need be.
