There is no conversion capability to convert a Lemur application into a MDP2 layout. But with MDP2 you can build a layout without any programming – place controls, adjust settings, connect, and take control of your devices.
When advanced control relationships are required:
- Super / sub control relationships provide basic control interconnection
- Named ticks provide scaling, arbitrary relationships, control down-sampling, and more, without writing any code
- StreamByter provides advanced control relationships with straight-forward lexicon
MDP2 is not a one-for-one replacement for Lemur, but can cover many use cases.
Our user group and support team are standing by to help you transition.
