What is a QXW file?

A QXW file contains a workspace created by Q Light Controller+ (QLC+), a free, cross-platform program used to control DMX or analog lighting systems. It stores information about a workspace, which may include light fixtures and functions used to automate fixture settings. QXW files also contain the properties of each light fixture, which includes the manufacturer, model, bulb type, lens, focus, and physical dimensions of the fixture.
