LaserShowGen is an application designed to make it cheaper and easier than ever before to create your own laser show. The program can both output directly to laser show projectors or DACs for full control over your laser projector in real-time, and it can also export to ILDA files which can be played by projectors with SD-card readers or other laser show software.

It is widely supported, running on Windows, macOS, and Linux, and it can connect to lots of different hardware (see list below).

LaserShowGen is free, with limited functionality. The free edition does not have access to the timeline mode, and has a max number of file exports per day of 10. LaserShowGen Pro unlocks these features and more, and costs just $29.

Supported laser projectors/DACs:

  • Helios Laser DAC
  • LaserCube / LaserDock (Both WiFi and USB)
  • Ether Dream
  • IDN
  • RIYA
  • Easylase
  • Modified sound cards

The Editor Mode lets you create your own laser frames and animations from scratch. Beams, graphics, abstract art, the limit is your imagination.

Timeline Mode screenshot

The Timeline Mode lets you arrange shows in advance, and synchronize it to music. NB: Not available in the free version.

Live Mode screenshot

The Live Mode lets you trigger playback of animations or still frames on demand, perfect for f.ex. DJs or improvised shows.

Also available in a web version, create ILDA files directly in your web browser on any operating system, without downloading or installing anything. An industry first!
