Prelite Adds LightConverse Software to Its Powerful Previsualization Toolset

Prelite Studios continues to set itself apart from other previsualization services with the addition of LightConverse 3D Show to its arsenal of software tools. Unlike companies that rely on a single software solution to fit all their clients’ needs, Prelite offers a range of platforms, including ESP Vision’s Vision and Cast Lighting’s WYSIWYG, both powerful previsualization tools.

“We differ from others in this business, especially lighting companies that do previsualization, because we have more than one software package. There’s no silver-bullet solution available, so we’re able to choose the right tool for the job,” says Prelite’s Tom Thompson. “Although LightConverse has been around for a number of years recent upgrades have added really useful tools that we felt we couldn’t ignore.”

Those features include the smooth ingest of Vectorworks drawing data into LightConverse, fast response time and performance, and the ability to clearly view many video inputs, which can be pixelated to resemble low-res displays, and blend projectors in real-time.”

Thompson notes, “The software also offers superior replication of light beams and visualizes video without the moiré problems you typically see. LightConverse mitigates that moiré effect and can also change pixel pitch on the fly, which is really handy.”

LightConverse 3D Show, from LightConverse Ltd., enables users to visualize multiple show-related disciplines in realtime. Visualization of more than 1,500 fixtures is possible and the software offers access to 15 DVI outputs for real world projection. Developers claim its realism and speed are the best in the industry.

When Prelite opened its doors they used WYSIWYG exclusively. “Then Vision software came out and offered additional advantages,” Thompson says. “As we’ve grown we’ve watched for other software to add to our arsenal, and we feel LightConverse is now ready for prime time.”

Prelite also has grandMA 3D software on hand for programmers who are comfortable with the grandMA platform and want files delivered in a grandMA-compatible format.

Prelite’s first implementation of LightConverse involved combining it and Vision software to previsualize Activision’s booth at E3. “The lights in LightConverse ran without any hesitation or lag, and the ability to converge projectors in realtime was a nice benefit,” Thompson reports.

Don Tyra, West Coast Dealer for LightConverse, concludes, “We’ve been speaking to Tom and the Prelite team for a while and are very excited to have them using our product. They are the only real dedicated simulation business in the US and have been doing it longer than anybody else. We look forward to their input in developing our product further.
