MagicLantern Project Viewer
MagicLantern Project Viewer is a utility application which allows the user to open and view the images and entry data in MagicLantern competition files. It is compatible with project files from MagicLantern version 220 from 2008 up to the current version. As the file format was different in versions earlier than 220 (from 2005 to early 2008) these project files will need to be converted to a compatible format. Please contact the author using the form on the Contacts page for more information.
The program is similar in layout and operation to the version 3xx series of MagicLantern released from August 2020 but does not allow for any editing or changing of the competition data.
It is expected that users of this program will be familiar with the MagicLantern competition program, either as a user or as a member of a camera club that uses MagicLantern for its competition presentation, and is using this program to view archived competition files which are available to the club members via a password protected download area.
