With the arrival of the new academic year, CAST Software shares in the excitement at being back to the classroom. This summer, our wysiwyg Educational Edition has been updated with exciting features to support your teaching and learning experience. New features include, MVR import and export, chroma keying (allowing you to place the live action shot of an artist, pyro effects or anything else), new gobos, truss, library objects, and 262 new fixtures. All of this, and more, remains FREE as part of our special wysiwyg Design Edition for students and teachers.
