LxDesigner(& LxDesigner Lite) is a P.C. based 2D lighting design software application. The program is designed to run on a Windows 95, 98, 2000 or NT based P.C and provide an easy to use design environment for stage lighting. There are a number of add-ons available to further extend the basic package enabling side, front and perspective views to be displayed.
LightFactory is a unique PC based lighting controller that combines the best of traditional lighting control with advanced features only available with the power of a PC. LightFactory was designed with the idea that every lighting engineer, operator or designer could own their own control desk. One desk they are completely familiar with, one desk that works for every situation and one desk they can rely on every time.
I found I was spending too much time adding Source Four and Source For PAR symbols to my 2D sections. I was always editing, ungrouping, rotating, and flipping, swapping C-clamps for tees, changing barrel types, drawing top hats, etc. Either that, or I would just settle for the slightly off version I had.
My solution — the Source Four Savvy Section. A single plug-in object with all of the following options:
Set any yoke angle, tilt angle, and flip.
Switch between front or side views.
Symbols have attributes set by class, with three levels of detail., so they always look the way you want them.
Show C-clamp or tee, with or without a standard 1.5” pipe.
Show short yoked.
Switch between Standard, 90-deg, 70-deg, 14-deg, 10-deg, and 5-deg barrel types.
Add a top hat, half hat, color extender, or scroller of any standard size.
Dimensionally accurate fixtures, components, and accessories based on manufacturer drawings
PCStage combines specialist software and an interface unit to allow a standard PC to work as a fully featured lighting control system aimed at theatre and multimedia applications.
The software also features a number of optional plugins such as; a 'beat detector' for synchronising light to sound, a 'path generator' for moving lights, a 'time executer' that runs a cue at a predetermined time of day.
Clarity, developed by OpenClear, is a lighting control system that aims to fulfil the need for a powerful & full-featured software-based controller that is intuitive and easy to use with an attractive, uncluttered & modern user interface.
Particular attention is paid to improvisational usage, especially for musical applications, whilst preserving the features necessary for structured and other applications (TV, theatre, corporate etc).
