Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a lighting software programme for a Mac?

I always draw my plans by hand and sometimes use something like Word and make a simple plan with colours indicating differnt lights etc.....

There must be a better way?!

I'm also interested in software where I can place specific lights, colour temp, output etc...and see how it falls and spreads within the space for learning purposes and trying out new ideas.

There is a program called Omni graffle that you can get stencils for and make some really good lighting plans.
