Smode Designer – 1 Year License

From 300€ per year

Deliver world-class live experiences. On-time.

Smode Designer is the end-to-end toolchain for live professionals.

It integrates seamlessly content creation, stage simulation, and playback, achieving real-time performance at every step of the process.

Unleash your creativity and watch it unfold live on stage: don’t let rendering times get in the way of the perfect show.

FAQ

Hey, I've been a long time user of Smode Tech's products, what's new in Smode Designer?
Hi, and thanks for your loyalty! With this big merge of all our previous products, you can now:
  • Create your own stage, simulate video projectors, LED structures, architectural & complex mapping,
  • Synchronize with timecode, make cue lists, control with DMX ligting consoles,
  • Interact via position tracking protocol such as BlackTrax, OptiTrack, PosiStageNet or Augmenta,
  • Remote control other instances of Smode Designer via the Smode-NET
  • And of course, you can import all your previous compos and projects in Smode Designer
What are the usage limits of Smode Designer?
  • Smode Designer video inputs and outputs, as well as DMX/Art-Net/sACN outputs are watermarked, so that you can prototype your show in real conditions until last minute. When you are ready for playback, you need to buy I/O channels unlocks, for as many inputs and outputs as you need.
How is Smode Designer license stored?
  • Smode Designer license is stored on a Wibu CodeMeter dongle. If you use similar tools (Notch, Touch Designer, etc.), you might already have one. If you order a license without a dongle, we will search for an pre-existing Wibu CodeMeter dongle in our customer database, and we will generate a license update for it. If we can't find your one or in case of ambiguity, we'll drop you an email to ask.
