For capture 2019 the focus has been placed strongly on the lighting designer's workflow.

All user interface elements now remember their state - current selection, column widths and sorting. Windows reopen in the same place as last time and if left open, reopen when you resume working. This lets you stay on track and focus on the work at hand instead of managing your working environment.

With support for dark mode and trackpads on macOS as well as improved 3Dconnexion device support this release lets your hardware come to its right.

Great rendering engine performance improvements breathe new energy into your hardware and allows you to visualise larger projects than before.

Many design environment enhancements, new fixture data fields and improved data import and export makes Capture 2019 more communicative than ever!
