LED panel


Recommended Posts

I'm just about ready to upgrade to Spotlight. I use a lot of custom made LED panels in our productions. (a light box with LED belts inside and a white backlit film on the front). Will I be able to create a custom instrument in Spotlight that replicates this? I would like to cue these lights in my rendering using the ETC Ion board. So each panel would need a Red, Green, and Blue channel that could be mixed.

My panels are various sizes. Lots of 2' x 2' squares. Some long troughs, 6" x 12'.

Kansas City Barbecue for any Spotlight expert that could help with this.

Seems mostly doable ... You will likely have to create custom fixtures and play with them to get the "look" exactly right.

But (as far as I know) there is not a way to control the lights in your rendering from a lighting console. To do this, you would have to go to some sort of pre-visualization software, such as ESP Vision, Light Converse, Martin Show Designer, WYSIWYG, Capture, etc.

The only way to control the lighting in a Vectorworks Spotlight (aka VW SL) scene is through the VW SL interfaces.

Good luck!
