    I have purchased a Dune laser ( and am looking to buy good control software.

    As a youngster I ran an Entertainment Lighting Company and after coding a DMX lighting controller I changed careers to a C++/VB and C#.Net developer.

    Is there an API provided with this LDQS software where I can import cue's and sequences made with my own software? Please excuse the 90's website, these are the type of FXs I am wanting to import:

    If there is not any hooks to plugin to an API perhaps you could provide me with a bit of advice. I read the IDLA spec and was wondering if I could save show files and import that way?

    Currently there is no access available to the FB3-QS API or SDK.

    You can import ILDA files into QuickShow if you already have the files. QuickShow will not export to ILDA.

    Ok thanks Aaron, I bought the software and a FB3 yesterday so its a relief to know I can import in IDLA files at a minimum.

    UPDATE! We do offer the ability to communicate through FB3, FB4 and QM2000. The method (which may or may not be called an SDK) varies, depending on the hardware and your end-goal. Please contact William Benner at Pangolin (using our contact form) to get into a discussion of the most appropriate tool for the job you're trying to accomplish.

    Best regards,
