Stage Research, Inc., the developer of audio, sound design and lighting software, has released SoftPlot 9.1 updating the lighting design application popular with professionals and students alike. SoftPlot enables users to create light plots and manage paperwork from gel lists to instrument schedules. “With SoftPlot 9.1 we have once again listened to and addressed the specific needs of longtime SoftPlot customers,� notes Bill Kirby who created the software in 1992. “Professional users have requested more reporting options, focus status view and pictorial views of fixtures -- all of which are new features in SoftPlot 9.1. And teachers and students will be pleased to know the upgrade remains easy to use while offering many new features. The key to SoftPlot is that it’s a lot easier to learn than a CAD program. Teachers always tell me it takes so long to teach lighting design when they also have to teach how to program CAD.� SoftPlot is a graphical design tool that makes it easy to drag-and-drop lighting fixtures, trusses and other elements onto the design surface. Users can take a bird’s-eye view and see their design in Plan, Cross Section and Elevation views to make sure sightlines and focuses are correct. The SoftPlot 9.1 release adds: * A Focus Status View mode, which can be accessed from the View menu. Focus Status View colors all instruments in red, yellow or green to depict the focus status condition of all lighting instruments as set in the Instrument Attributes Editor. * A Pictorial View mode which can also be accessed from the View menu. Instruments and distribution items are displayed with their picture images instead of graphic symbols for a pleasing, easy-to-read drawing. %0
