I have updated the LED ring controller service.

The service now supports SparkBooth. Light effects are applied to the LED ring according to status information written to a status file by SparkBooth.

If you purchased an LED ring from me, please contact me for an updated configuration manual.

Photo shooting at Lake Wiesensee

After years of waiting we had the unique chance to dive this lake. It’s a sesonal lake that disappears as quickly as it appears in a shallow valley. Ideal weather conditions allowed for a spectacular dive and great pictures. Because of weight restrictions, I didn’t take pictures myself. I concentrated on modelling for Harald Hois.
You may have a look at his pictures in my model gallery.

Photo Booth LED Ring Service V1.5.4 available!

LED Ring Controller

I have updated both the controller firmware and the LED ring controller service.

Most light effects now feature a background color. You now may specify a second color for swoop, blinking, countdown and auto countdown.

The new controller firmware is version 1.09, the service is version 1.5.4. You have to update both controller firmware and the service!

Photo Booth LED Ring Service V1.5.3 is available!

LED Ring Controller

I updated the software for the PhotoBooth LED Ring Controller. It now uses .net framework version 4.7.2. The setup has been updated to install the required .net framework versions if they are not already present.

This change should ensure a proper installation on PCs where the required .net framework versions are not already installed.

The most recent version can be downloaded here.

PhotoBooth LED Ring Service Version 1.5.2 available!

LED Ring Controller

Again, I updated the software for the PhotoBooth LED Ring Controller. The service start-up is improved. It has less dependencies and allows an initial light effect on Windows restart and resume from hibernate.

The helper application CmdLauncher.exe got a new parameter -init that will set the configured initial light effect on the LED ring.

The most recent version can be downloaded here.

PhotoBooth LED Ring Service V1.5.1 now available!

LED Ring Controller

I changed the software to control the Photobooth LED ring again. The service now allows to specify an initial light effect that is set when Windows boots. In addition, a light effect is set after the installation to check functionality.

I removed setting a light effect when starting the service. It slowed down Windows startup and doesn’t work reliably on a number of Windows 10 installations. The initial effect can be configured in the service configuration file. The effect is set during system startup. It is visible before the Photobooth App is active.

The latest version is available for download.
