A show laser generates animations by reproducing several individual images (frames) in sequence at a certain speed. Animations can be used for graphics, logos or texts. When it comes to lasers, the quality of an animation depends on the scanner speed, the beam divergence and the colour modulation of the individual laser system.

In addition to simply trigger factory-made animations via DMX, users can create and display custom animations. To do this, a laser software, and a show laser with an intelligent mainboard (e.g. ShowNET) or ILDA support (and an additional external interface) are required.
