From the Manufacturer:
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 colors 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.
Bring lighting, media and motion into your visualization. Capture’s rendering engine features outstanding color accuracy and amazing performance, which will impress you right away! With a complete library of lighting fixtures, trussing, LED panels and video projectors you have everything you need to make your ideas come to life. When your design is complete you can render it to high quality image and video files. You can also export Capture's unique, stand-alone, presentations which deliver full interactivity with your design.
For Capture Visualization, the focus has been on the core lighting design functionality of the software. Capture now introduces fixture groups and a new dedicated 'focus plane' tool. They have also improved on fixture data management in general. All this is put to use in the reworked report editor which now makes it possible to create virtually any type of report.
