Product Description

Vectorworks Spotlight 2014The undisputed standard in entertainment and lighting design software, Vectorworks Spotlight 2014 merges sophisticated 2D drafting and powerful 3D modeling with advanced lighting design and production tools. Now it's easy to create light plots, place set and scenic elements on stage, automate reports and schedules, and visualize the complete design concepts in 3D.

Features and benefits

New Dimensional Constraint Manager
Make life easier with very reliable parametric constraints. You can interactively make edits to your model or your views and have the changes automatically reflected.
Interactive Dimension Editing
Now you can directly edit geometry using a dimension's length on the documents drawing area.
Improved Drawing Coordination
Users will enjoy automatic management of reference information, linking sheet numbers, drawing numbers on drawing borders, drawing labels, and reference markers.
New Planar Graphics
2D objects can occupy the "screen plane" as they do now or use the "planar space" in the unified coordinate system.
Improved 3D Snapping
With the 3D cursor, you can reliably acquire your snaps so it's easy to select, modify, and align your objects in 3D.
New Unified 2D/3D Environment
Vectorworks has a new "unified view" that makes it an ideal 3D modeling environment. Whether you're working in 2D or 3D, it allows you to accurately draft or model on the correct working plane.
New Event Planning Suite
Now you can easily create the room, stage, steps, lectern, video screens, and seating. Plus, you can create standard views to show your client, and generate reports for the total number of tables and chairs in your room.
New Video Screen Objects
Use these first-class tools to design and visualize television screens, video projectors, video screens, and edge-blended projection screens.
New Seating Layout Capabilities
Now you can offset alternate rows of seating and calculate row and seat spacing based on the chosen symbol. Plus, when you're creating worksheets of seating layouts with tables, the command will show and count the symbols that are housed within the main symbol.
New Spotlight Content
The symbol content from popular brand equipment manufacturers has been expanded in 2010. There are several new manufacturers, new generic libraries, and also updated existing libraries with more of their recent fixtures.

New Select Similar Tool
The new "select similar" tool enables you to do in one click what you previously did in many. You can select all similar objects, based on any combination of 27 criteria, regardless of layer or class, define saved settings, and save, load, or delete your selection settings.
Improved Texture Mapping Controls
You'll enjoy this easy-to-use 2D and 3D texture-mapping interface. We've merged intuitive mapping controls into a single dialog interface. Nice and simple.
New Decal Texturing
Since you can now apply multiple textures onto a single object, it's simple to visualize signage, labeling, and custom decal or material renderings.
HDRI Content
New HDRI Backgrounds including exterior, interior, and studio backgrounds.
New Blur Reflectivity Shaders
You can now add a blur factor to reflectivity shaders such as simple glass, accurate glass, mirror, and metal. With these shaders, renderings of reflected shadows will be so realistic, you might have to pinch them.
