Virtual training offers the convenience of attending a class led by an industry expert from your own home or office. The content of this virtual, live class will be delivered in a lecture format.
We strongly recommend that participants complete our Core Concepts class prior to taking the Spotlight Virtual Training course.
COURSE DESCRIPTION
The Vectorworks Spotlight Virtual Training class explores the workflow of creating a small corporate event. Starting with a blank file, the course covers best practices for organizing a document and creating the venue. It also includes instruction on how to incorporate seating layouts, video screens, speakers, light positions, lighting devices, and focus points, create presentation views, and extract data from objects into worksheets. If you choose to follow along on your own computer, progression files will be provided, so you can track the instructor’s keystrokes throughout the seminar.

OVERALL LEARNING GOALS
Create a small corporate event while learning about Layer and Class organization, importing DWG files, referencing data from other Vectorworks documents, drawing faster and more accurately, and utilizing the built-in, industry-specific tools and commands.

PREREQUISITES
Attendees must have completed the Core Concepts Training Class or have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of 3D workflows. They should also understand the listed tools, palettes, and workspace environment in Vectorworks software. This includes drawing organization structures such as layers, classes, sheet layers, and viewports, along with understanding the purpose of the following Vectorworks software palettes: Object Info palette, Basic palette, Attributes palette, Resource Browser, View bar, and the use of the heads-up display (i.e., Floating Data Display bar).

Attendees will learn from Emmy award-winning designer Kevin Lee Allen how to effectively communicate across multiple disciplines by using Vectorworks Designer. Thanks to its tool sets from the three built-in modules: Architect, Landmark, and Spotlight, Designer offers tools and content to represent and edit exterior landforms digitally, add plants and trees by genus and species, as well as incorporate architectural and entertainment lighting and rigging support for Building Information Modeling techniques. Designer also offers rendering tools to help users draft, model, and present in a single interface.&nbsp:
Allen will walk participants through examples of how the software can assist with scenic design and renderings. Modeling, texturing, organization, and tool usage (including possibly unexpected uses) will be covered, as well as rendering for presentation and creating design documentation.
Attendees will:&nbsp:
Explore the expanded features of Designer and how they can enhance projects in the entertainment industry. Work with the Site Model feature from the Architect and Landmark toolsets to develop an accurate landform on which to accurately place outdoor events while considering drainage and sun position. Populate the Site Model with specific plant species found in the Landmark toolset. Learn about the uses of structural steel assembly and wall styles from the Architect toolset.

Description:
Visualizations are a key component of landscape design and have been from day one. Professionals approach this process differently, and some continue to embrace the more time-intensive hand-drawn methods, while others utilize CAD, 3D modeling, and image-editing technology. Although each of these are successful to some degree, revisions are inevitable, and the time it takes to reconstruct these illustrations in multiple platforms could be greatly reduced by fine-tuning the design in one application.Witness the power and efficiencies gained by 3D modeling in Vectorworks Landmark as Tony Kostreski, landscape product marketing specialist at Vectorworks, Inc., builds various features for a residential garden using a combination of landscape-specific tools and commonly used 3D modeling processes. Attendees will learn how to maximize communication for the success of any project and why the mention of “revisions” shouldn’t cause fear of going over budget.
Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the benefits of using landscape-specific tools during your 3D modeling workflow.
2. Learn and master commonly-used 3D modeling processes to create custom objects.
3. Explore how designers communicate with clients and contractors in a more immersive way using virtual reality with the Vectorworks Nomad app.
4. Recognize the benefits of reducing revision challenges by working in a single file through modeling and rendering.
