I've downloaded and installed LightJockey, and been able to open the visualiser...but all I see is a 3D box. I cannot figure out how to plot lights or establish a realistic stage (possibly because I don't have all the pieces). My next step is to dive into the manual - but it is lengthy and I'd rather not waste my time if I'm on a wild goose chase here.
To get it to show the fixtures, you need to open the visualizer and then select "read fixture list" I can't remember which menu it's under, but it's there. You can't do things like build trusses, or show people, etc. but you can move fixtures around. The learning curve is a little steep, so save early and save often.
You can take par cans and adjust beam angle and color, etc.
