The JimOnLight.com Podcast – Reminder for the Giveaway!

On Friday of this last week, I launched the JimOnLight.com Podcast – the first podcast features an interview with Gil Densham of Cast Lighting, the makers of WYSIWYG.  I’m dropping a reminder here because I want to make sure people enter for the big giveaway – two free licenses of Synthe-FX’s iPhone and ArtNet control platform, Luminair 1.5!  A $99.99 value, and I’ve got two for you!

Listen to the podcast – there are two questions that need answering in order to enter the contest.  Contact me through the contact form – do NOT, and I repeat, do NOT POST YOUR ANSWER in the comments!

Good luck!

I just downloaded WYSIWYG R23 last week; I am now plugging my way through a few posts about the new features, but I can tell you that the new live viz tool is stunning.  Spectacular is another word that comes to mind.  They’re also knocking $800 off of the price of WYSIWYG Perform Unlimited, and WYSIWYG Design to Perform upgrade is $800 off list as well.  Times are tough, Gil and his people aren’t stupid.

New in R23:

Visualization (Shaded Views)

  • Improved Beam Footprints
  • Shadows
  • Hotspots
  • Video in Beams
  • Improved Smoke Controls
  • AVI Movie Creator
