CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A lighting visualization system comprising:

a graphic user interface (GUI) comprising a control panel and a primary display area, said primary display area being configured to display one or more rendered image associated with a digital model of an object;

a processor in digital communication with the GUI, said processor being configured to render a first rendered image based on a first lighting scenario; and a first database in digital communication with the processor, said first database being configured to store one or more sets of information associated with rendering the rendered image,

wherein the first lighting scenario comprises information associated with a first set of light sources being in respective first lighting configurations, and wherein the processor is configured to render a second rendered image based on a second lighting scenario, the second lighting scenario comprising information associated with one of the first set of light sources or a second set of light sources being in respective second lighting configurations.

2. The system of claim 1, wherein the second set of light sources comprises at least one light source that is not included in the first set of light sources.

3. The system of claim 1, wherein the second configuration of each light source of the first set of light sources differs from a respective first configuration of such light source.

4. The system of claim 1, wherein a first light source of the first set of light sources is an ambient light source, wherein the control panel comprises a first slide bar associated with the first light source, wherein the first lighting configuration of the first light source is a low ambient lighting configuration, and wherein a first slider is positioned at a left-most end of the first slide bar while the primary display area is displaying the first rendered image.

5. The system of claim 4, wherein the second lighting configuration of the first light source is a high ambient lighting configuration and wherein the first slider is positioned at a right-most end of the first slide bar while the primary display is displaying the second rendered image.

6. The system of claim 1, wherein a first light source of the first set of light sources is a DMX light source, the first light source being moveable between a plurality of color

configurations, wherein the control panel comprises a first set of selectable elements when the control panel is in a first display configuration, each selectable element of the first set of selectable elements being associated with a respective color configuration of the first light source.

7. The system of claim 6, wherein the control panel comprises a selection indicator associated with the first set of selectable elements while the control panel is in the first display configuration, wherein the first selection indicator is associated with a first selectable element while the primary display area is displaying the first rendered image, the first selectable element being associated with the first configuration of the first light source.

8. The system of claim 7, wherein the control panel is configured so as to allow a user to select a second selectable element of the first set of selectable elements, thereby causing the selection indicated to be associated with the second selectable element, wherein the second

selectable element is associated with the second configuration of the first light source and wherein selecting the second selectable element causes the primary display to display the second rendered image.

9. The system of claim 6, wherein a second light source of the first set of light sources is a DMX light source, the second light source being moveable between a plurality of color configurations, wherein the control panel comprises a second set of selectable elements when the control panel is in a second display configuration, each selectable element of the second set of selectable elements being associated with a respective color configuration of the second light source.

10. The system of claim 9, wherein the control panel comprises a selection indicator associated with a first selectable element of the first or second set of selectable elements while the primary display area is displaying the first rendered image and the control panel is in the first or second display configuration, respectively.

11. A method of visualizing a plurality of potential lighting scenarios associated with an object, the method comprising:

displaying a first rendered image in a primary display area of a graphic user interface (GUI); and

replacing the first rendered image with a second rendered image upon the occurrence of an adjustment event,

wherein the first and second images are rendered using a digital model of the object and information associated with respective first and second lighting scenarios for the object,

wherein the first lighting scenario comprises information associated with a first set of light sources being in respective first lighting configurations,

wherein the second lighting scenario comprises information associated with one of the first set of light sources or a second set of light sources being in respective second lighting configurations, and

wherein the adjustment event comprises changing a configuration for at least one light source of the first or second sets of light sources.

12. The system of claim 11, wherein the second set of light sources comprises at least one light source that is not included in the first set of light sources.

13. The system of claim 11, wherein the second configuration of each light source of the first set of light sources differs from a respective first configuration of such light source.

14. The system of claim 11, wherein a first light source of the first set of light sources is an ambient light source, wherein a control panel of the graphic user interface comprises a first slide bar associated with the first light source, wherein the first lighting configuration of the first light source is a low ambient lighting configuration, and wherein a first slider is positioned at a first position relative to the first slide bar while the primary display area is displaying the first rendered image.

15. The system of claim 14, further comprising sliding the slider along the slide bar from the first position to a second position, thereby causing the primary display area to replace the first rendered image with the second rendered image, the second position along the slide bar being associated with the second lighting scenario.

16. The system of claim 11, wherein a first light source of the first set of light sources is a DMX light source, the first light source being moveable between a plurality of color

configurations, wherein a control panel of the graphic user interface comprises a first set of selectable elements when the control panel is in a first display configuration, each selectable element of the first set of selectable elements being associated with a respective color configuration of the first light source.

17. The system of claim 16, wherein the control panel comprises a selection indicator associated with the first set of selectable elements while the control panel is in the first display configuration, wherein the first selection indicator is associated with a first selectable element while the primary display area is displaying the first rendered image, the first selectable element being associated with the first configuration of the first light source.

18. The system of claim 17, further comprising selecting a second selectable element of the first set of selectable elements, thereby causing the selection indicator to be associated with the second selectable element, wherein the second selectable element is associated with the second

configuration of the first light source and wherein selecting the second selectable element causes the primary display to display the second rendered image.

19. The system of claim 16, wherein a second light source of the first set of light sources is a DMX light source, the second light source being moveable between a plurality of color configurations, wherein the control panel comprises a second set of selectable elements when the control panel is in a second display configuration, each selectable element of the second set of selectable elements being associated with a respective color configuration of the second light source.

20. The system of claim 19, wherein the control panel comprises a selection indicator associated with a first selectable element of the first or second set of selectable elements while the primary display area is displaying the first rendered image and the control panel is in the first or second display configuration, respectively.
