Lighting design and visualisation software

Save time with a lighting design, documentation and visualisation software that is both easy to learn and rewarding to use! Capture is a native Windows and Mac OS X application that lets you work with lighting, video, moving scenery, lasers and water jets.

Capture supports a wide range of ethernet DMX protocols like Art-Net and sACN but also connects directly to High End and MA Lighting consoles as well as consoles that support CITP from brands such as ADBAvolites, ChamSys and Strand Lighting.

Capture also plays back local video files, streams video directly from CITP/MSEX compatible and Green Hippo media servers, receives laser projector content from LaserAnimation Sollinger and Pangolin systems and live positioning information directly from Kinesys K2 systems.
