Anyone know where on the net I can download a legend that has the symbols for drawing a lighting plan?

Might as well revive this topic instead of starting a new one. On the web the only diagram I could find was an actual stencil for plotting on paper. A previous post talked about using Photoshop brushes. Anyone made those and is willing to share them? Or does anyone know of a site with symbols? Thanks.

Eh, more intriguing. Does your friend have the icons? I think Freehand got the ax in the Macromedia/Adobe merge.

I'm sure he'd be willing to share the wealth - shoot him a PM?

Here is a trick. Take a digital photo of a lighting diagram you like from American Cinematographer. Load it into your drawing program and then cut and past it. It won't be a vector so you will need to resize, rotate, or flip to make it fit.

Here's some photoshop brushes that cover tungsten, HMI, a person and the camera. Basic but it gets the job done.

If you're running Windows, you can download the demo version of WYSIWYG (which won't print), design lighting plots, and then "Print Scrn" or "Shift Print Scrn" to get the drawing on the Clipboard, then Paste them into MSPaint or any other graphics program that understands *.bmp files. That way you've got something you can print for no investment.
