I am from a community theater & work as the TD which also serves as the light designer & set designer & builder so.....It's a lot of work & am trying to make it easier in any way...One way would be to have a lighting design software for making plots but, as being in a community theater....there isn't a great deal of money to throw around.... I am interested to know if there is any software that isn't an arm & leg in price that can be used in Windows Vista(good luck right?) for light plots. 3-d isn't necessary but is nice. Also...any tips you have for me would be nice! I am working with little amount of instruments & little space... Thanks for any help!
