Key additions include a new graphical user interface, customizable work layouts, and importing improvements.

wysiwyg has increased compatibility with the latest Sketchup 3D modeling software SDK and associated file formats. Users can import drawings directly from Sketchup into wysiwyg, and textures, layers, surfaces and object groupings are now preserved as they were created. wysiwyg now also supports new file formats: Wavefront OBJ, Filmbox FBX, Collada DAE; and, 3DS Max.

wysiwyg R36 results from a beta testing programme that received the following feedback:

“I love the new Beta I can now mix the patch window into one of the window panes.”
Jason Gardash, freelance lighting designer and programmer

“XYZ Rotation data - the ability to export positional data for every fixture in wysiwyg is something I have been asking for, and CAST Software has listened. R36 brings new options in Spreadsheet mode, which adds to the already implemented XYZ location data, and allows global fixture rotation to be exported and used in lighting consoles. I couldn’t wait to try out this new feature with grandMA2 desks, which can use this information to position fixtures accurately in 3D space - providing useful tools such as auto-focusing and internal-visualization. This was previously only available by manually positioning fixtures or with the desk physically connected to a wysiwyg machine.”
Alex Mead, visualization specialist and lighting programmer, PRG Live

“The new import tool of R36 will change modeling dramatically. This is what I’ve been waiting for a long time!”
Emiliano Morgia, lighting designer, lightingdesigner.pro

“R36 now has a beautiful software Interface. The layouts of the travails windows are remarkable and very useful.”
Patrick Neufond, lighting director, TV
