MagicQ is ideally suited for use on films and has been used exclusively on many films including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Parts I and II, Your Highness, John Carter of Mars, Robin Hood, Star Wars, James Bond and Game Of Thrones.

MagicQ has strong integration with visualisation systems such as WYSIWYG, ESP Vision, Capture and Light Converse which enable operators to plan and control the lighting of large and complex film sets.  MagicQ supports patching from the visualiser so that the plot can be designed in WYSIWYG and then transferred to the console at the touch of a button.

MagicQ also has a vast array of external interfaces and remote control options that allows the system to be integrated with external systems such as camera control, motion control and show control in many different wierd and wonderful ways.

Major film supplier Panalux have utilised the MagicQ MQ300 Execute as the core of their Vizilink lighting control system which is in use of many top level films.
