"I have big screen laptop with Autocad 2000, WYSIWYG 3.5(don't laugh) and A older vervion of Adobe Premiere and Photoshop. I have found this is the best combo for visual sales demos. It is quick and to the point. I can sit in a large Church and…"

Jeremy Ellwood replied to Rachel Vaughn's discussion Does anyone have a good use for the "shake" effect in most moving lights? in the group Lighting Designers
"Earthquake? Catastrophic event? (Think End Game) Bring the audience into a 'drunk' character's eyes? These are just thoughts off the top of my head for I typically stick to conventional lighting."

"I use Vector woks 2010 and they did a huge upgrade designed at theatrical and lighting design. What I like is the tools that let you design a room, stage steps and tables and chairs in about three minutes to shoot something quickly over to a…"

"Try this when transferring to people with auto car. Change the UNITS from feet / Inches to just INCHES. Along with scale 1:1 I was having problems and this cured it"

"I use VW for primary drawings (architecture, details, etc), but then swtich to Wyg for the plots. However, this is primarily because I run an ETC Emphasis in-house. I definately prefer the working environment in VW for actual drawing (particularly…"

"Vectorworks Spotlight 2010 with Renderworks and ESP Vision. Soon to move up to Show Designer V once the Vectorworks plug in is available. Building in VWX and exporting to ESP for Pre Vis is the way to go."

Jeremy Ellwood replied to Jeremy Ellwood's discussion Software - What do you use?
"I agree with you on the symbols for both programs. That's why I just make my own and 'symbol'. Takes for ever to actually create the symbols, but once you have em saved, it's just plug em in, print the plot, and go. "

Warren Letton replied to Jeremy Ellwood's discussion Software - What do you use?
"Personally I'm a WYG man, I don't particularly like the symbols it has (then I've heard the same for the standard symbols in VW) and it does have some frustrations (like you can't just put a light somewhere, you have to have a…"

Jeremy Ellwood replied to Jeremy Ellwood's discussion Software - What do you use?
"You can do 3D with lighting in VW. I don't like how blocky it looks though. I am also a graphics designer which is probably why I like the clean look of C4D as opposed to using one software package for all. WYG was way too faux looking to me as…"

"Well At 14 I have had the luxury of being able to hand draft plots using stencils. Along with cad. I have used both Vw and wyg. For one vW has so many different buttons you can fill up two and a half screens with the program. I also perfer wysiwyg…"

"Have you ever tried LD Assistant? It is AutoCad based and uses all the horsepower and tools of AutoCad coupled with every possible tool related to our industry. It has all the rendering capabilities as well as 3D and also has it's own…"

Rob Pelance replied to Jeremy Ellwood's discussion Software - What do you use?
"I can agree with you there. I love the freedom and control of hand-drafting. There are really only two problems that I run into drafting plots by hand. First, alterations can get a bit messy. Second, it creates a bit of a problem when needing to…"

Jeremy Ellwood replied to Jeremy Ellwood's discussion Software - What do you use?
"I actually agree with you on the time efficiency of software, and I use it when time dictates I need to, but I like the feel and control of hand-drafting... and the fact that if I use software, I also need to take the thing to Kinko's to have…"
