LD Assistant upgraded with Real-Time show visualizer and more

Building upon the success of its LD Assistant software in the Theatrical & Entertainment Lighting Design Software market, Design and Drafting, a subsidiary of Chicago Stage Equipment, Inc., the world's leading entertainment & theatrical lighting design software company, released LD Assistant 04 with bi-directional communication with built-in console and show visualizer.
This 2D/3D Autodesk OEM CAD program is optimized for theatrical & entertainment lighting design, which helps designers create lighting plots, animations, presentations and control of their lighting systems. It also reduces costs and shortens the design process.
With the release of 04 lighting, designers can control dimmers, moving lighting fixtures, motorized curtain tracks, counter weights, chain hoists, self-climbers and consoles all from within the CAD program LD Assistant. Any object in the drawing can also be controlled using an external source DMX channel.
LD Assistant is an entertainment lighting design software offering advanced DMX and Ethernet control with high-end lighting and rendering tools in a full 2D/3D CAD program. Rendering tools include, Atmospheric Lighting & Lens Effects, Volume Light (smoke in the beam) and Lens Effects (Glow, Ring, Noise, Secondary, Star and Streak).
"LD Assistant 04 and AutoCAD LD Assistant 04 users can now, for the first time ever, control their lighting systems and easily create advanced lighting plots, high-end photo-realistic images and animations with professional lighting effects," says Rufus Warren, President of Design & Drafting. With an AutoCAD-native interface, users can leverage their knowledge of AutoCAD and be productive from the start.
