CAST introduces wysiwyg Lighting Design Software Release 39, which packs improved
security to protect user investment as well as a rich new feature set for every
wysiwyg mode: CAD, data, plots, reports and previsualization.

Created with the lighting designer in mind, as well as a futuristic workplace, wysiwyg’s
powerful and integrated improvements result from the direct feedback from wysiwyg
users and the wysiwyg beta testing program. Users will be able to be more creative
and dynamic in their lighting design workflow from the design and presentation to
clients as well as on site, saving valuable time and resources.

Wysiwyg highlights include:

Panorama / 360º Image export

Users now can export 360º Spherical images of their design, and with the help of a VR
googles, such as Google cardboard or Gear VR, users can step inside their virtual
design and experience it in first hand.

Alpha Beam Shadows

wysiwyg is taking it one step closer to reality by considering the colour and Alpha
percentage in the textures and altering the beam’s colour and intensity as it passes
through the surface.

• Library’s Insertion Points

Select from different insertion points when adding a Library item into a drawing. This
will help place an object correctly and avoid having to re-position it afterwards.

Software UI Translations

CAST has accomplished extensive background work so that wysiwyg can be translated
into new languages, with French being the first.

For wysiwyg Release 39, a lot of investigation time and effort was dedicated to make
improvements to importing DWG/DXF files. This should resolve any issues
experienced when importing very large DWG/DXF files.

available in the library, as well as new accessories, gels, gobos and many old fixture
