hey guys,

i was wondering if you knew where i could find even a demo (that doesn't just last 30 days) of a lighting plot program

i don't mind the 30 day one but i need to use it in more than thirty days so i could download it later but i don't want to

the ones i have been looking at

Softplot
Stardraw Lighting 2D

I used Luxart years ago when it run off DOS (remember DOS kids?). It was a pain back then, but this newer version seems decent enough. its good they've done that.

UPDATE: free lighting plot software

hey everyone,

i enquried about the software suggested by me and emailed the person who was selling the software and was given a choice buy the program or get it for free and add lights to the database i took one look at the light database they had and said that i would do it i will design the symbles for the lights

i am currently adding Selecon (they had none) and then i will move on to adding Strand lighting

having been able to sample the software in it's full capacity i belive it is a good buy but if you have the money for Vectorworks i would buy vectorworks

i wonder if they need their database updated?

Hello:

Vectorworks is a standout product and they, like other higher end programs are constantly updating their databases. Also, Steve Shelly at Lime Light has symbol updates for Vectorworks. What program did you opt for?

Good luck,
