FREE Alternative Lighting Plot Software

Are you an up and coming lighting design looking to draft your plots digitally?  Having a tough time finding the funds to purchase other drafting software on the market? No worries, Claude Heintz Design has you covered.  These are the same people that brought us MacLux Pro for Apple OS8 & OS9.

Claude Heintz Design has developed a new set of lighting applications for Mac OSX called LXFree.  LXFree is part of LXSeries of software which allows lighting designers to draft their plot very similar to other well known drafting programs. Did I mention the best part… It’s FREE.

Here’s more from the LXFree web site:

LXFree is an application for drawing light plots and generating paperwork. LXFree combines drawing a light plot with editing information associated with graphic objects in the drawing. LXFree produces reports by linking the graphics, attached data, and additional databases related to the properties of these objects.

LXFree is, as its name implies, totally free! Here’s why: The goal of the LX series is to make the best possible set of tools for Lighting Designers. By giving away the base application, the hope is to build a strong foundation for the rest of the tools.

LXFree is a Mac OS universal binary application. LXFree requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later for full functionality. You can choose to download a version of LXFree that runs under OS X 10.3.9.

If you own a Mac, what is stopping you from heading over to right now and downloading the software and giving it a try?  While you are there, check out some of the other software packages aimed at helping lighting designers such as LXBeams, LXConsole and LXTools.

Thanks Daniel!
