    hi all, i am new to controlbooth. i am a highschool senior and have worked all my life with expression. i really want to learn about moving light control but my school does not have the facilities/money for that.

    i have already downloaded both hog 2pc and 3pc, and have been playing with them for some time, following along with the manual. however, i can only assume i am doing things right cause i dont have it hooked up to any lights.

    can someone please explain to me how i would go about setting up a virtualizer/wysiwyg program (which programs i can get and are most affordable--im not that rich :). thanks a bunch.

    also, is there a difference between "virualizers" and "wysiwyg"?

    Start with the CB wiki entry WYSIWYG, which is one brand of visualizer. Few are free, or even inexpensive.

    I might recommend MA Lighting's grandMA onPC and grandMA 3D.

    thanks for the info. i will try the grand MA.

    i am also interested in learning with the Hogs though...the rental company that works with the school has all Hog stuff, so if i ever am to do a high school thing with moving lights, it would probably have to be hog.

    thanks again for the help!

    I believe that ESP Vision provides a demo rig that is supported by the hog. You can download the demo rig on one computer, set up your moving light control on a second, and play to your heart's content as long as you don't try to modify the rig.
