best floor plan software

Recommended Posts

How do you guys floorplan? 

Do you use a software? if so which one? I'm very frustrated with shot designer which has an awful user interface IMHO, and is very limiting.

Honestly; when I do such things, I much prefer to actually draw it out with paper and pencil, then scan it, and long ago used to transcribe that in illustrator (basically drawing over).

But; I'm strange like that where I try not to go digital until I have to. I still hand-write my equipment lists before I transcribe it into excel. Also this "double work," seems to help double check what I'm doing.

But, as for digital only type things, honestly, shot designer is all I've seen, used, and been given on almost every show... so. . .devil you know and all.

Give Magic Plan a try.  You can download the app for iOS from the app store.  It's great and easy to use.  Lets you export PDF / JPG versiones that you can the import to whatever software you prefer for lighting diagrams.
