Expert makes light of it
Let Expert Software guide you through setting up and creating your lighting design, with helpers and clear, easy to follow processes. The desktop app, available for Windows and macOS, is a brand-new programming platform, designed from scratch to give you just the tools you need.
Expert commissioning software is free to download.
One Space with abstract fixture layout optimised for easy visualisation, in Dark theme
Multiple and nested Spaces with scaled, accurate layout on background image, in Light Theme
Everything in one view
Spaces are the key – your fixtures, the scenes that control them and the wall stations that operate the scenes, all live together in their Space. When you select any of them, the right tools for that item appear in the Browser, Properties and Tools panes.
Let Expert guide you
Helpers, Walkthroughs and Suggestions give clear indications, show your progress, and ask simple questions to navigate you through the project setup. The Help Centre displays topics to explore and gives you additional explanations and examples right in the app at the click of a button.
Colour coding helps identify items and their spaces for complete ease of use and the Status bar provides live feedback to your current activity and helpful prompts for your most likely next steps.
Expert makes light of it with a new approach to programming
Manage your fixtures intuitively – from one canvas to nested rooms and zoned areas, your fixtures are naturally grouped where they are located.
Fulfil your lighting design – ranging from just colour and intensity, through to creative effects and sequences that can be subtle, ambient, or dramatic!
An innovative new approach to managing how lighting events are activated, with choices determined by logical combinations of tagged Scenes and behaviours.
Familiar calendar views make scheduling your lighting a breeze, with full recurrence options for holidays and special events.
Elegant 5-inch touch screen with automatically generated pages and controls, with themes that match your project and style and skins that can be changed on demand.
See your scene programming right there on your canvas, simulate in real time, and virtually activate changes on stations and by the schedule to check interactions before you upload.
