where can i get a free or trial version of a light plot software
wysiwyg has a demo that you can not do renderings or print on... i think there is a demo of vectorworks out there....
Martin Show Designer (www.martin.com) and LewLight Capture (www.capturesweden.com) both have trial downloads as well.
thd $150 to get the student version of vectorworks, its much better then the FULL PRICE version of it.
Vectorworks. It does have a steep learning curve, but gosh dang is it a powerful program.
Well, Vectorworks and WYSIWYG both allow for this. Capture is more of a pre-viz program and thus its plotting capabilities are limited.
Personally, I'd go with VW, as someone said, you get a student pricing for $150 and its the industry standard (yeah, we can argue with this, but 95% of our plots come off VW). I've never seen a demo of VectorWorks though.
If you're brave you can try AutoCAD, but its not thought out for lighting at all.
With LD assistant it is... but by the time you get that you might as well get vectorworks... but the nice thing about LD assistant is that most TD's use AutoCAD, as well as set designers... so you can have everything in one nice package...
bit cumbersome. Don't get me wrong, I love AutoCAD, and I agree with what you say with TDs and set designers. Although I'm seeing them switch as well to VW lately.
comp program I would go with vector works for sure
