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. Scrims + video/digital movie cameras

    Huge scrims for movie sets and huge production still sets.

    Also add a video camera like a RED or Panasonic AF100 and ARRI Alexa style camera.

  2. Login on iPhone app

    Just wondering, is it possible to login on the iPhone app so that when I login on my PC, I can still see all the diagrams which I created on iPhone?
    At the moment, I don't think I need to login on the Iphone app, so my diagrams are only accessible on my phone.

    And is there a way I can import from my Iphone into my account after I have created one?
    Thank you!

  3. Identifiable info on each element

    Each element (ex. Umbrella) should say if it is a silver, gold, white umbrella, instead of just "bounce".

    Or if I put an octabank in the layout it needs to say "on boom" if it is not usually on a regular stand.

  4. Add saving diagrams options!

    Sylights is an awesome application for keeping track of all the lighting setups that we as photographers routinely use. Nevertheless, I think it could be a lot more useful for not only saving our own setups, but for saving also other photographers' lighting setups. I constantly research and see what other photographers do with their gear and I wish I could add those lighting setups to my collection and keep'em forever for future reference.

  5. 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.

  6. Idea

    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?

  8. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. Ability to create and add own objects

    Much like Microsoft Visio, I would like to be able to add templates for additional objects I and others create. There are so many items I would like to add to a scene, like props, cars, couches, etc. I would pay $15 for a full featured app like this. By the way, the app you created for the iPad is about 70% there, a few tweaks and you could be earning money with it.

  19. 45 degrees ...

    I have been using my strip lights set to different angles. Not just vertical or horizontal. A striplight set on a 45 degree angel would be very cool
