Scott Thomas - Lighting Designer, Disneys Beauty and the Beast

"Using LightFactory as our lighting control for Beauty and the Beast in Auckland was definitely a good choice. A quick introduction to the software and we were away. We found that it was very intuitive to learn, simple to operate and also had very powerful features. We imported the dimmer patch from an Excel spreadsheet which saved a lot of copy typing as it included the channel descriptions also. This was initially done on the demo version you download off the web. The different effects available such as chases, time line, moving light effects etc., were all used and extremely easy to learn and build. Any number of these could then be added into your cues with ease. This is not a dedicated moving lights console and as such was very easy to control conventional luminaires with. I would recommend to anyone looking at upgrading their desk to look at this option."
