Special Events Product Gallery for Dec. 9, 2009

New Rendering Software Debuting from Cast
Cast Software announced the release of its third and final installment in its Wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) trilogy of rendering software. Version R24 offers pre-visualizations and renderings that are precisely what users will get on the set, in the venue or on the exterior of a building, the company says. The company's library of more than 20,000 lights, gobos, trusses, etc., mean the software will yield replicable renderings. The new time-of-day capability allows users to test ideas for outdoor events specific to a geographical location at a particular time.
