The Rosco Cinegel range includes over 200 tools for controlling light, including color corrections, diffusions, our patented CalColor System, The Storaro Selection and Cinelux. Since it's introduction in 1970, Cinegel has continually developed and grown to meet the working needs of professionals working behind the camera. In 1974, Rosco was honored with an Academy Awardï¿½ for developing the Cinegel range and again in 1998 for the development of the CalColor range of calibrated colors for camera.
All of the filters in the Cinegel range are available in 20"x24" sheets and 48"x25' rolls, unless otherwise noted. The Cinegel range of color correction and color effects filters are manufactured using deep-dyed polyester for heat stability & superior color transmission.
Rosco FlexBond provides a flexible adhesive bond between many scenic materials, such as fabrics, plastics, foams and wood. Rosco FlexBond dries to a clear, hard, yet pliable coating that does not suffer from the "tackiness" common in many other flexible glues even after those glues have had days to dry. And unlike ordinary "white" glues which can crack and break when flexed, the adhesive bond of Rosco FlexBond remains extremely pliable and strong even as the materials bend and deform. Rosco FlexBond is water based, and very safe to use, with little fume and low toxicity.
Use FlexBond to adhere fabrics to fabrics, fabrics to wood, foam to wood or fabric and many other combinations of materials common in scene shops. Rosco FlexBond provides an excellent coating over Ethafoam that allows this notoriously difficult foam to be painted with ease. With its super adhesion, Rosco FlexBond can be used to laminate blocks of foam together. It can be thinned with water, tinted with universal tints or Rosco paints, or used as an additive to give other coatings like plaster or clay added flexibility.
Rosco Premiere Clear is an advanced, water-borne urethane coating suitable for sealing and protecting painted finishes, floors and high-traffic surfaces. When cured, this clear finish provides long lasting durability, hardness and abrasion resistance in an environmentally safe, VOC compliant coating. Premiere Clear is virtually odorless and may be thinned with water. In addition to protective top coats, it is excellent for use in faux finish or glazing applications. Premiere Clear is perfect for almost any project in stage, film, decorative and commercial arenas.
Surface to be coated must be clean and free of dust, dirt, wax, grease or any other contamination that could affect proper adhesion and curing. When applying over glossy surfaces, roughen the undercoat by sanding with fine sandpaper or steel wool. New wood must be sanded to open up the grain. When treating bare wood, excellent results can be achieved by first applying Premiere Clear Gloss finish to seal the grain, followed by 2 coats of Premiere Clear in the desired sheen. Premiere Clear should not be used over other sealers or stains containing stearates, silicone, or wax.
Rosco Premiere Clear may be applied by brush, short nap roller, or spray. Stir product before and occasionally during application. DO NOT SHAKE! Apply in thin coats. When rolling, use a roller cover with 1/4" or thinner nap for best results. For spray applications, thin Premiere Clear up to 20% with clean water. Spray on in thin uniform coats. Avoid excessive film build up in recessed areas or yellowing may occur. If Premiere Clear is applied in excessively thick coats, or under conditions of extremely high humidity the film may remain "milky or clouded" for an extended period of time. To avoid this, apply only in thin coats, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next coat. Woods containing high levels of tannic acid (e.g. redwood, cedar, red oak, etc) may cause a discoloration in the clear film. Test before applying on an entire project. Sand lightly with fine sandpaper between coats of Premiere Clear.
Important Note: Rosco Premiere Clear provides a highly durable urethane finish perfect for sealing floors in entertainment and live event venues as well as withstanding light or moderate commercial traffic. A floor coat is ready for light use after 12 hours, but allow 24 hours to cure. Rosco Premiere Clear is suitable for exterior use in semi-protected environments however long term exposure to direct sunlight is not recommended.
Sweetlight Software The software contains several programs: dmx addressing, light scenes creation, live show, timeline show, 3D rendering, ... ControlBoard is a control panel from where you can run all these different programs. Click the program icon to start it.
Declare your lighting equipment in Setup. The library contains personality files (colors, gobos, ...) for the most common fixtures (mirror lights, moving heads, color changer, strobes, power units, ...). This library is regularly updated on our site in order to stay current with new fixture releases. If the light you are using is not included, it is easy to add and configure new ones.
With Editor, create dynamic scenes. The screen manages: pan/tilt movements colors, gobos, ... trychromie time and fade mode fixtures grouping ... The screen looks similar to a "regular lighting desk", with advanced functions like copy, paste, insert, ...
In Generator, in a few mouse clicks, build complex lighting scenes, with pan&tilt movements and color (gobo, ...) effects, for a group of moving lights, with fanning effect.
With Live, play the show in live. Live is customizable, depending of your needs (pages, buttons, presets). A button can trigger a light scene, a multimedia file, or a timeline. The screen can be locked by with a password. It is also possible to change any channels from Editor, while Live plays the show.
Timeline is a synchronized multimedia show editing software. It is able to play multiple file formats (video, picture, audio and light scenes). Drop the files into the timelines and slide them in the desired time. The possible applications are: basic "sound and light". The readable audio files are wav, mp3, ogg and wma format. "video and light" on plasma screen or video projector. The readable picture files are bmp, jpg, png, giff. The readable video files are avi, mpg, mpeg, mov, wmv.
3DView display the stage in 3 dimensions and it shows the lights moving in real time, from any point of view. Set stage size. The program has a bank of basic objects (speakers, truss, music instruments, ...). You can also import your own objects. Set position (orientation, scale, color) of each object (or fixture). It is possible to set these parameters on a group of objects. Set textures, luminosity, smoke level for more realism.
For total security, the interface can operate lights in stand-alone mode. From StandAlone, download dynamic scenes into the interface. Depending on the model, it is possible to store from 1 to 14 dynamic scenes for later recall without the need of a computer. The scenes can be swapped or added together. This system is not only ideal for backup during big shows, but also to run stand alone installations where simple use is important, like exhibitions and architectural lighting, ...
THE INTERFACES When linked to the computer, the interfaces do the same job. The major differences concern the stand-alone using (without computer). - if you want to always play the show with the computer, and you have only a few lights, the interface "Cable" should be the best choice - if you want to always play the show with the computer, and you have a lot of lights, the interface "D512" should be the best choice - if you want to always play the show with the computer, and you want to use a dmx lighting desk together with our software, the interface "Box" should be the best choice - if you want the interface plays the show without computer, and you want to trigger the scenes with a remote controller, the interface "Remote" should be the best choice - if you want the interface plays the show without computer, and you want to trigger the scenes with buttons, the interface "SSA" should be the best choice
