As with every release, wysiwyg takes features and improvements from the previous release and brings them to the next level. R27 allows true 3D flyovers when used with the 3Dconnexion mouse, introduced in R26, putting the User directly into digital space using all of the 6 Degrees of Freedom – X, Y, Z, and Pitch, Roll, and Yaw. With R27you can do flythroughs in realtime.

With this 3D mouse users can pan, zoom and rotate as if they’re holding the model in their hand. Users can also operate cameras with this new addition to wysiwyg, focus conventional fixtures, and create flybys as well as switch camera views and create a live motion video – capturing it all with wysiwyg’s onboard CamStudio package.

wysiwyg R27 includes new fixtures and the truss, gobos and accessories needed to do a show. And Members in good standing get all new fixtures as soon as they are available.

Releases are free to current wysiwyg Members. In fact, being a Member is the only way to get a fully operational copy of the software.
