Developer's Description

Lighting Designer is a quick and intuitive way to create lighting plots for film, theater, and television. The wide selection of equipment and simple yet powerful interface makes it easier than ever to illustrate and communicate your lighting setups, even when you're away from your computer.

Perfect for tech scouts, working in a car or on a train, or just choosing the couch over your desk chair! Plus, the iPad is a great presentation tool; take it to set and show your crew exactly what you want.

While expensive drafting programs can take hours to use and years to master, Lighting Designer is an accessible way to plan your next show!
