Light Calc is a photometric calculation tool for professional lighting designers and theatrical electricians. It allows you to carry a pocket database of commonly used theatrical lighting fixtures that you can quickly access in the field. Light Calc allows a user to select a type of lighting fixture, choose one of several lamp types, and set a throw distance. The calculator will then return a beam diameter and field diameter, in feet, as well as center field illumination, in footcandles.
Needs bigger fixture library
Gotta agree with Ryan zzzz
Again, simple and to the point. But as Ryan zzzz stated, the fixture library is quite impressively small. In the world of today, moving lights are everywhere and traditionnal lighting tends to being relegated to 2nd roles. You need more arc lamps there... much more. And there's also plenty of trad lamps missing: where are the 2k fresnels?, 5k? Everybody can agree that there's isn't that much a difference in beam and field between a ETC, Strand or Altman 26° lens, however the output can change. You have the embryo of a nice product here, but charging 5$ for it IS excessive in it's current state. Looking forward for the next updates.
agree with others
this looks to be the beginning of a good app, but it needs more types of lights in the library, not only moving fixtures but maybe some legacy stuff as well, berkey/colortrans and old strand lekos, etc.. good start though : )
