Design & Drafting exhibited LD Assistant 04 at ETS-LDI, optimized for theatrical and entertainment lighting design, to help designers create plots, animations, presentations, and control of lighting systems.

With the release of 04, designers can control dimmers, moving lights, motorized curtain tracks, counter weights, chain hoists, self-climbers, and consoles, all from within the CAD program. Any object in the drawing can also be controlled using an external source DMX channel.

LD Assistant also offers advanced DMX and Ethernet control with high-end lighting and rendering tools in a full 2D/3D CAD program. Rendering tools include atmospheric lighting and lens effects, volume light (smoke in the beam), and lens effects (glow, ring, noise, secondary, star and streak). Lighting, animation, and control wizards are included to ensure getting started quickly.
