I Preface

I Preface
Preface Our visualizer provides a real-time 3D rendering of your stage. It allows you to preview light movement, colors, and every other effect available in robotic/intelligent lighting (iris, strobe, dimmer, shutter, etc). Light beams from conventional lighting (PAR) can be visualized as well. It is also possible to insert objects to customizeyour stage, such as trusses, furniture, etc. from our own libraries of objects, or to import objects from other CAD software. With a little practice, you will be able to reconstruct stages and venues in a very realistic way. Note: The most accurate 3D representations come from carefully created profiles/libraries of lighting fixtures. The 3D visualizer includes different “modes”, each receiving theDMX signal from a different source (software, console/desk, network, etc). The software is capable of visualizing up to 4 DMX universes simultaneously. The patching for the fixtures within the 3D visualizer can be done automatically if it is linked to a software controller. If this is not the case, fixture patching must be done manually. Entire DMX universes follow the same rule. Moreover, youcan separate DMX universes within the visualizer, i.e. Universe 1 linked to a USB/DMX-IN interface, while Universe 2 linked to Art-Net protocol.

II First steps
First steps This chapter introduce the basics to simply use the 3D visualizer. It includes a description of the files used to savethe projects and the first steps to create a 3D stage.

1. 3D stage

3D stage 3D stages are saved with the "evs" format and can be open/saved indefinitely. Stage dimensions, inserted objects and fixtures are also saved in these files.

It is also possible to import or export 3D stages to or from zipped files with the "Import / Export" buttons of the "Stage" menu. Saving a 3D stage includingall required files (X files, BMP or JPG files for the textures...) and the re-open it on another computer which does not contain the same objects.
