Wysiwyg and BlackTrax upgrades from CAST

The CAST Group has unveiled new updates

The CAST Group has launched wysiwyg R42, which introduces a plethora of new features such a VR experience when the lighting design software is connected to the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. This allows users to ‘step inside’ their designs to experience them virtually before implementation. Other new features include the Position Tool, a dockable window that displays an object’s position and allows the user to change its location, by clicking in various directions or entering an exact coordinate. R42 also brings improved truss support, cleaner object representation, a display as screen option for LED walls, the ability to cast shadows per object, shaded view to tooltips, enhanced laser visualisation, and more.

Prior to the release of R42 was the launch of wysiwyg R41 whereby users can stream videos directly into a wysiwyg file from a local video player or from a media server, via the Network Device Interface (NDI) protocol. Other benefits include the ability to scale up, down or stretch any 3D object within wysiwyg. The Scale tool can be applied to a primitive shape, an object from wysiwyg’s library (except truss and fixtures) or objects imported from other applications. Selection Sets reportedly save time by reducing the need for repetitive selection tasks and will save the selection information such as which objects are selected and in what order, so that shortcuts can be reused multiple times.

In other news from the Canadian manufacturer, BlackTrax V2.3.3 combines tracking with lighting, media interactivity, moving projection mapping, 3D positional audio and camera tracking. V2.3.3 aims to act as an aggregate control suite for all cameras on production and will allow users the possibility to link between modules and quickly set up scenes and subjects with the appropriate cameras, locations and automation presets. In addition, PTZ positional presets provide users with the ability to position and save non-tracked cameras with an infinite amount of camera presets that will point and zoom the PTZs in any desired position.
