The Light Library

The Light Library works exactly like the Definitions tab of the Lighting Patch Editor except it lets you view and edit the global collection of lighting definitions on your Mac, rather than the collection of lighting definitions within the workspace.

Light definitions are stored in ~/Library/Application Support/QLab/LightLibrary; each definition is a JSON file with the file extension .qlablight.

If you are only just getting started with lighting in QLab, and have not done much work with light definitions, this folder may not yet exist since QLab only creates it to store definitions that you add or edit. If you go looking for this folder and cannot find it, you can create it yourself by hand. Just navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/QLab/ and create a new folder called LightLibrary.

QLab ships with definitions for the following lights:
