Lighting design software

Save time with a lighting design, documentation and visualisation software that is both easy to learn and rewarding to use! Capture is a native macOS and Windows application that lets you work with lighting, video, laser, moving scenery and water effects. Where Capture truly excels is with its ease of use and seamless switching between design, documentation and visualization. This provides an unprecedented level of flexibility and ability to support different types of design processes. It encourages you to try out new workflows and find faster ways of working.

Designing with Capture

Whether you're looking to create a simple 2D sketch or a full-blown 3D plot, Capture has you covered. Try as many fixtures as you need, at different hanging positions and with different gels or gobos. Adapt easily to any set design changes or sudden new restrictions. Do even more with Capture's impressive 3D model import capabilities and excellent integration with other lighting control and design products.
