DMXControl 3 (DDF3) Plugin
Free lighting software, especially common in Germany, developed and distributed by the non-profit association DMXControl Projects e.V., works only on Windows.
This plugin handles Device Definition Files (DDF) of version 3, used in DMXControl 3. They are saved as XML files (one file per mode) and can be created with the DDFCreator program.

Install fixture definitions
Browse to the fixture you want to download, then select DMXControl 3 (DDF3) in the Download as… button.
Import fixture in Device Listing window (Devices > Device Listing), then patch it (Display > Patch).
Fixture files in subdirectories are not recognized.
Definition files may be stored in subfolders, but the filenames still
need to be unique (
Devices\manB\fix123.xml doesn't work). Note that the
DDFCreator software doesn't recognize subfolders.
