Yes, it is free, but the free version has outputs watermarked or blocked. You can work and save your project without limitations, so it is 100% ready for when the project is getting installed.

Do you have software-only version?

Yes, we do. It is called Lightact Start.

How can Lightact connect with physical world?

Lightact can receive UDP or TCP or OSC messages, which can originate from sensors. Also, you can grab video streams from IP or USB cameras or depths sensors such as Kinect and run computer vision algorithms on it.

Do you have a real-time rendering engine?

Yes, we do. It’s called Layer Layouts.

What is Layer Layouts?

Layer Layouts is Lightact’s visual scripting engine. It’s a node-based tool where you create real-time content.
