Complete 3D Workflow
Design, previz, and operate your show in a single-process 3D workflow. Texture map your video panels in a 3D model using the World Viewport. Create presets of different mappings or automation positions, and trigger them in realtime during your show. Display your content exactly as intended with zero dither and zero alias. Set up your show file once, and remap your show to most stages in minutes freeing up lots of time and stress so you can be more creative.
Unsurpassed Console Control
Use your lighting console’s mapping system to spatially control each panel using our Crescent Panel Fixture Profile (17 channels). Spatially address your video panels with your light fixtures for perfect stage appearances. You can also timecode or punt a video show without your hands ever leaving the console by mapping any panel, slider, button, and knob is with Artnet, OSC, MIDI, and more.
Individual Panel FX
Control up to 16,384 panels individually with our built-in Sequencer or with a lighting desk. Each panel can be adjusted with up to 17 paramaters such as color, effect, scale, and rotation. Quickly program unique panel sequences that work on every stage.
Advanced users can quickly create custom generators and effects for their artists. Expert users can hack, modify, and build new features into Crescent Sun using the power of TouchDesigner. Each license includes a TouchDesigner Pro license to allow for limitless creative potential.
