    Hello Everyone,

    I am stuck between a rock and hard place. While I'm trying to create a light plot on Vectorworks. I have worked with the program for sometime now. Although I have zero formal training on the software, I feel I have the basics down. What takes me probably 4 hours to do, would take a pro only 1 or less.

    I am seeking someone who has a little more experience in the program to help me design a simple 20' x 20' stage light plot. Just so i can learn a little more and maybe speed up my techniques a little. Let me be clear this would be simply to understand a little more about how its done in real world. This would not be for profit at all. Like many I have a love for the craft and just wish to educate myself.

    If you are willing to help me out would love to connect with you on skype or google hangouts. This way we can share screens and I can learn a little from you "the Pro". Thanks so much for your consideration on my request, and hope to hear from someone soon.

    Cory

    Bumping this because I need something along these lines for my own personal learning. So thanks @soundman for answering a question I hadn't even asked! :D

    Yes I have seen that link before. I was sorta looking for something a little more modern. Maybe something that uses box trussing vs standard pole light positions.

    Thank you for the link though

    Greg Hillmar's book Light Plot Deconstructed is a great book. It will walk you through a lot of stuff and outlines a workflow really well. The version I have is somewhat out of date but I found it applied to the working in VW2016 and forward.
