Welcome to the Sylights board!
Please share any idea, request or bug you may have encountered (have you?!) concerning www.sylights.com!

I want it that way:

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Search,save,send function

    It be nice if there was a search option for a light setup or style. Also a way to save my fav light setup so I can refer back at a later time. Also a way to share a photo and light setup.

    • Can you add more

      Can more types of modifiers with stands be added? Also, how do I get my diagrams and images featured?

        • New Feature

          Introduce black and white cutters/blockers. I am using these often to avoid light spill.

          Also a large and small shoot through scrim is commonly used to diffuse light.

          • Save diagram to the Cloud

            Hello,
            This is a great app and I need to start to edit on my iphone or ipad and I would need to be able to share my diagram on both devices and the cloud or website.
            It would be perfect if I can create, edit and share from web version or iPad or iPhone and have my lightning diagram stored in one place (cloud)
            Today I can only do that on 1 device and this is not very convenient.
            Thanks for your work and keep updating your apps we love them.
            Frederic

            • Virtual Pen

              A side from the tools you already have. There could be a virtual pen that let's you draw lines on your diagram. Aswel on the web app as on the iOS app.

                  • How about a vertical, camera point of view diagram tool?

                    This tool would show relative heights for each light, panel or head from the camera's point of view. An outline would show something behind a panel that would otherwise block the view. These would be tied to the overhead lighting diagram. When one moves something here it moves in the camera POV as well

                      • Can you make a file format that we can share with others in the app?

                        I would like to have a file I could email an another photographer and let them open it on their iPad and make changes and send it back to me.

                          Hey
                          I'm using your app on my iPhone and on my iPad, but i'm missing a function to synchronize these two (or i haven't found it yet).
                          If there is no one: what is about a synch over dropbox or iCloud?

                          • Create Windows Phone version

                            Would love to be able to use this on my phone when I'm on location.

                            I realize where this probably sits on your priority list, but I thought it'd be nice to get it on there anyway.

                              • Please add a green screen backdrop, s'il vous plait.

                                Also, show the videographers some love. We are using your fine app as well. Green screen backdrop and a video camera icon are my requests. Superb app!

                                      on the lights, create a cone that represents the light output.
