    Hi all,

    Welcome to our new forum for Lasershow Converter MAX. As many of you already know, Lasershow Converter MAX (sometimes abbreviated LCMax) is our award-winning plugin which converts scenes done in 3D Studio MAX into laser graphics. Lasershow Converter MAX is a true revolution in the way laser shows are created. As a testament to this statement, over half of the ILDA graphic award winners used LCMax and around half of the Pangolin Prize entries used LCMax for show production. The projected image quality is awesome and there is no post-editing required.

    We are working very hard on the next version of Lasershow Converter MAX, which was pre-viewed at the ILDA meeting in Orlando. We want to add a few last finishing touches to it before release, but we are certain that you will be happy with the update.

    Stay tuned for more information on this exciting update!

    Best regards,

    LCFlash is coming along quite well. We expect a mid-February delivery.

    This is not just a Flash to laser converter, but a real environment, just like LCMax, with many LCMax-like features.

    Re: New forum and new version with DEMO available

    Can you take a Showtime show with audio and make a stand alone Flash movie with audio?

    Hi Cory,

    Actually we had Laser to Flash working around 2.5 years ago. We did not proceed with it because we felt that it could be a security breach. That is, if "Laserist A" was armed with a tool like LCFlash, they could conceivably download Flash animations from the web site of "Laserist B" and convert them directly into laser, arguably with better quality than "Laserist A" had to begin with. That, and a few other reasons are why we went with our Laser to AVI exporter. We have actually improved the Laser to AVI process with version 3.0.

    Hi Paul,

    Showtime will generate AVI files with preview-window-like quality. It will even work with our new Enhanced Reality previews, including beams and fog.

    This AVI Export capability has been in the software since version 2.0 or so and it has been improved a bit with version 3.0.

    Best regards,
