Vectorworks 2020 Service Pack 3 (SP3) includes updates to all U.S. English-based versions of the entertainment suite including Vectorworks Spotlight, Braceworks, ConnectCAD and Vision. With SP3, General Device Type Format (GDTF) files can now be directly imported into Spotlight, can be applied to any Vectorworks lighting device and can be managed directly from the Resource Manager. These lighting devices can then be sent to any previz or console that supports GDTF, including Vision which now recognize GDTF files when using the MVR Import. Other improvements to Vision include the integration of the GDTF fixture builder to allow for direct editing and the customization of fixture attributes such as gobos, colors, effects and more. This enhanced GDTF support streamlines the MVR workflow and creates a fully connected workflow between Vectorworks Spotlight, Vision and consoles that support these open file formats.
