This course will also teach users who are not designers creating plans the anatomy of a lighting plot, and what information can be extracted for use in other departments. By the end of this course, participants will be expected to achieve the following tasks: I. Import or reference AutoCAD DWG and PDF venue drawings. II. Extracting only the relevant information required in these external references. III. Create a Lighting Device, Lighting Position, and simple stage elements. IV.
