Vectorworks Spotlight 2017


Vectorworks Spotlight 2017 is the leading, industry standard CAD software for entertainment design. Whether you design lighting, scenery, sets, corporate events, theatrical productions, or exhibits, Vectorworks Spotlight has the functionality to help you create a stunning presentation.

Vectorworks Spotlight has a full set of tools for creating light plots in both 2D and 3D, utilising an extensive library of lighting instruments, accessories and trusses from the leading manufacturers of theatrical equipment. Take your light plot and quickly create a 3D visual.

Event Planners can make use of the intuitive Event Planning suite of tools to easily create rooms, curtains, screens and seating layouts for all manner of events and pull off quantity lists directly from the drawing. Produce a 3D model of the event simply by changing your view and use Renderworks to create fantastic visuals to ensure you win the business!

Set Designers will benefit from a set of architectural tools as well as the standard 2D and 3D modelling tools which come as standard with Vectorworks Spotlight. Find out what's new in Vectorworks Spotlight 2017.

Renderworks is the icing on the cake for producing stunning visuals. Renderworks has the Maxon Computer CINEMA 4D rendering engine built in to the Vectorworks workspace.

Lighting designers looking to take their designs to the next level may wish to look at Vision. Vision is previsualisation software with which the design can be taken to the console and programmed offline, cutting down time required at the venue. Vision includes a plugin to Vectorworks and makes the transition from plan and model to preview seamless.

Audio designers can benefit from the additional plug-in software developed by Landru design. It integrates completely with the Vectorworks Spotlight workspace and offers many more event tools.
