New modern user interface in new LED Strip Studio 3.5

Graphical User Interface (GUI) is not always the most important feature of the software. But, let’s be honest – it’s a lot more convenient to work with nice looking application. Enjoy new Gray theme!

The new dark gray theme design is now popular with most of the graphic software (like Adobe Photoshop or Premiere) and it’s practically standard for software development in 2020. It’s especially useful for us, light designers. The computer monitor doesn’t shine that much when using the software in a dark environment.

We’ve upgraded user interface for all “windows” in LED Strip Studio. Every section – the mapping window, strip editor or video editor – are now inline with this new gray theme.


In the previous version, we added the new Basic shapes functions. We’re now adding additional shape – Polygon. This allows you to draw N-gon.

You can set number of sides of the polygon and also number of pixels (LED points) per every side.
