Vectorworks Spotlight (4 day Class) - Dec 19 2023

Vectorworks Spotlight is a Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) drawing program specifically designed for the Entertainment Lighting industry. Training in Vectorworks CAD systems will provide the Set Lighting Technician the ability to plan the lighting systems for sets, stages, and to accurately document the set-ups for specific shots.CAD drawings will enable rigging crews to thoroughly prepare and install the lighting systemas well as enable the CLT to quickly reference specific lights to significantly decrease set-up time. These drawings will also enable the crew to accurately recreate the initial set-ups without having to spend large amounts of time analyzing the dailies and trying to track down the original crew. These drawings can also be a great help to the Visual Effects department by giving them accurate lighting information.
