Slit Diffraction material picks up and bounces light. Fabricated entirely of durable self-extinguishing vinyl. Each Slit Drape unit is 3' (0.9m) wide and as many units as needed may be used for a seamless, continuous curtain.
Slit drape is Rosco's exciting version of the familiar slashed curtains widely used in the display trade and the performing arts.
Overlapping 1/8" layers of material provide a remarkable effect of bouncing, shimmering light. The diffraction used in some of the models refracts the light into spectacular patterns of color.
Slit drape is constructed entirely of durable, self-extinguishing vinyl. It resists tearing or scratching and the surface requires virtually no maintenance at all to retain its extraordinary properties. The finished Slit drape is lightweight enough to move gently with any air movement... thus adding to the "bounce" of light from the drape.
Slit Drape units are three feet (0.9m) wide and maybe ordered in 8' (2.4m), 16' (4.8m) or 24' (7.2m) lengths. The units can be secured onto a doorway, opening, wall, or any convenient location with staples, tacks or tape.
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.

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
