Class Description: 

In addition to simple plotting and 2D/3D modeling, Vectorworks is capable of photo-realistic renderings which can help sell lighting concepts to directors, cinematographers and clients. This class is intended to help those who are already skilled at hybrid drafting take their rendering skills to the next level. <b>This is an advanced Vectorworks class and is intended for those already familiar with 3D modeling and basic rendering techniques. Vectorworks basics will NOT be covered in this class.</b>
