Freely design your lighting, visualise the set, and automatically create documentation.

Spotlight puts together three elements: design, visualise and document.

  1. Design: Freely design both lighting and stage. Whether you’re doing a rock-n-roll stage, a theatre set or an exhibition design, you have the tools to express your design.
  2. Visualise: See your design come to life with visible light beams, then realistically render it with Renderworks, the built-in renderer based on Cinema 4D’s engine. Send to Vision to get real-time visualisation and integration with your lighting desk.
  3. Document: Automatically generate the paperwork to get the show on the road. Stock control for equipment, instructions for electricians to patch the lights, and all your documentation needs.

Spotlight gives you access to any type of light available. They even say, if you find a light that’s not in their database, tell them about it and they’ll create it for you. So you get the ease of choosing your lights and placing them wherever you want.

Whether you work in lighting, event, TV, film, rigging, or exhibition design, Spotlight enables you to design in 2D and 3D allowing you to clearly communicate and effectively share your ideas.

Imagine it. Design it. Document it.

Sketch, model, and document your design ideas with precision drafting capabilities and the most flexible 3D modelling engine, powered by SIEMENS Parasolid.

Take advantage of purpose-built tools with a huge library of lighting, audio, video, scenic, and rigging manufacturer content so you can create detailed 2D and 3D plots and automate paperwork to meet tight deadlines.

Work with anyone

Vectorworks allows you to easily collaborate and share files with colleagues, consultants, and clients.

Project sharing means your entire team can work on the same Vectorworks file at the same time, leading to greater efficiency at every design phase

Experience smooth communication workflows through Vectorworks Cloud Services and mobile rendering, storage, and file sharing.
