Lightwright for Mac
The Lightwright Mac OS X application combines the capabilities of a database with the functionality of a spreadsheet in order to create a user friendly environment for managing the paperwork required when working on professional lighting projects.
Lightwright proves to be extremely useful for both lighting designers and electricians because the generated reports retain work notes, details about moving light wheels, about the circuits that should not be overloaded, and so on.
Well organized manager that can handle the paperwork for professional lighting shows
Even though the utility does not feature a modern design, finding your way around the Lightwright user interface is fairly intuitive, thanks to its tabbed design. You get to easily access your worksheet, to add new elements, or to customize various parameters: all the items included in your electrical circuit will be displayed in list mode.
Furthermore, the Lightwright utility can seamlessly communicate with the Vectorworks application: with a simple mouse click you can generate a graphic representation for your circuit. Combine that with the Lightwright detailed reports, and you will have a clear look upon your entire project.
Versatile lighting show management solution that can be used by entire teams
The Lightwright documents can be modified by different users, but the app keeps track of all the changes, together with the date and time of the adjustments, and details about who made the modification. The best part is that you can always revert to a previous state in no time (Lightwright can also bring back deleted lights).
If you want to learn more about how Lightwright works, the developers provide a tutorial video that get you through all the basics.
All in all, if you are working on designing a lighting show, or you are an electrician that needs to put everything together, Lightwright offers you the necessary tools to monitor all the included elements, how they relate to each other, and what precautions you should take in each case.
