New Vectorworks Tutorial for Scenic and Lighting Design

New Vectorworks Spotlight training guide available. Helps lighting and stage designers develop skills in Spotlight 2012


Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., has announced a new Tutorial for Scenic and Lighting Design available from Kevin Lee Allen. The How-to guide provides a range of exercises for students, instructors and professional designers.

The book is officially titled “Entertainment and Lighting Design with Vectorworks Spotlight: First Edition.” Kevin Lee Allen is an award-winning lighting and scenic designer whose work includes theater, film, television, museums an corporate environments.

The book explores the use of Vectorworks Spotlight, the leading CAD design program in entertainment lighting markets, with the use of the Renderworks program for producing final renderings. “It is definitely going to be my course texbook for this semester because, despite my students having different needs than entertainment designers, it specifically lists the most important tools, commands and workflows and talks a little about each one,” said Chris Dopher, Entertainment Design, Instructor, FIT.

The new manual is intended for use with Vectorworks 2012 software and is most applicable to Spotlight 2012. It is a part of the Nemetschek Vectorworks’ self-paced training options, designed for people who like to learn at their own pace.
