Sylights

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. Comments box

    Thanks Oliver, I find Sylights very useful and user friendly. I noticed when I download my diagram, the comments I have made are not included. Is there a fix for this or am I missing something? thanks

  2. 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

  3. Diagram editor locks up in Safari (mac)

    Drag, rotate and scale frequently stops working.

    1. Create new diagram
    2. Place a few objects, doesn't matter which ones
    3. Drag, rotate and scale objects
    4. Observe these three operations stop working after a few interactions whereas clicking the x button to remove objects still works.
    5. Problem doesn't go away until Safari is restarted. Refreshing or browsing away then back to editor doesn't help.
    6. No errors in the JavaScript console

  7. resize button does't move

    When the different buttons appears on objects and if we turn this object, the button Resize doesn't move and sometimes it's above the close button. It should be turn like the another buttons no ?

  8. Save as new...

    The edit feature is very cool but instead of replacing my diagram It would be cool if we had the option to save it as a new diagram..

    This way we can document a shoot as we move lights around the studio, add or remove extra lights with out having to start a new diagram for each set up

  10. 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.

  11. Improvement request

    I'd like to be able to zoom in and out on my grid for my diagram as I work on it. Is that possible or am I missing something?

  14. Save a diagram configuration as default one

    Tired of always having to set back the diagram configuration to the same values?
    We're thinking about giving you a "save as default" link in the diagram configuration pane.

    What do you think?

  15. 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.

  16. First of all, great job, guys ! The abilility to change the color of the background would be ffine. Black or white is a bit limited.

    There's only black or white. Not even gray. If we could select different colors for the background, this will be helpful. I wrote a comment on the appstore. Great job for make this app available for Ipad1. Great team, keep creating !

    Thanks for the feedback!
    We have already planned to do such a thing. We just don’t know yet when this will happen.
    The next update for the apps will bring another color for the backdrops, it won’t be gray though…
    As for the iPad 1 support, we are happy to support iOS 5 for the time being :)

  17. sync

    Will be awesome to be able to sync my iphone and ipad. Maybe using dropbox? or iCloud?

  18. New feature

    I have skylights on my iPhone and iPad, why can I not sync my diagrams across all my devices and on website? Very useful to be able to do this.

    Please let me know if you have a solution?

    Thanks
    Andy

  20. 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.
