BlinderKitten: Illuminating the Future of Open Source Live Event Lighting
BlinderKitten is a modern, fast, multiplatform lighting software with remote controllability via OSC and MIDI, supporting GDTF and MVR, all made accessible under the GPL license.
In the electrifying realm of live events and theater, Norbert Rostaing, a prolific developer and lighting connoisseur, has forged an open source tool for lighting professionals and enthusiasts: BlinderKitten.
BlinderKitten dances with external controls via MIDI, OSC, and Art-Net, giving designers the reins for real-time adjustments.
And with MVR import capability, scenes from Capture, Vectorworks, Production Assist and more platforms seamlessly merge into BlinderKitten’s environment. BlinderKitten further extends this functionality by providing 2D views generated from the MVR 3D scene.
It’s invigorating to witness fresh projects embracing GDTF and MVR, both in commercial and non-commercial spheres. When enthusiasts transition into the professional entertainment industry, they’re well aware of the path toward seamless workflows.
