Bring your
ideas to life

d3 Designer software powers our d3 production suite. From visualising concepts, to preparing outputs - it's the all-in-one tool that makes it a delight for designers, production managers and technicians to collaborate in creating the epic.

 

 

 

Visualise
your thinking

See your project come to life with the advanced 3D stage simulator. Navigate through the set for a pixel-perfect view of your entire show. Whether you're reviewing it from a technical or creative perspective, add screens, lights and projectors, even down to their lenses. Once you're happy, render fly-through movies to share your masterpiece with the client.

Map your
content

Throw your content onto the stage from any angle with our advanced content mapping features. designer knows the exact position of every pixel, so it can easily map content onto multiple screens of any shape and form – static or moving. Whether you’re working with LED or DMX-based screens, with the right type of mapping, your design will really come alive.

The big reveal

Take control of multiple media layers and sequence your entire show from your laptop. Whether you’re tweaking the design or syncing the visuals to the beat – it’s easy to mix and match layers. When it’s time to go live, our powerful configuration tool prepares the outputs so they look exactly as you imagined.

Active visualiser

d3’s visualiser knows where every pixel is, and can use this knowledge to control the output. So you can map content easily onto complex surfaces in a fraction of the time.

Advanced projector toolkit

For projection mapping projects, create content and apply it directly to the 3D model of your projection surface.

Timeline Editing

d3’s timeline lets you create cues, synchronise media and control layers, group layers, and quickly edit layer properties over time. Work either in HMSF for frame-by-frame accuracy, or add guide audio tracks so you can work in beats and bars for compelling, rhythmic edits.

Multi-Edit

Connect multiple editor laptops to let many operators work on the show in parallel, sharing edits in real time. Multi-Edit lets you handle largest workloads to the tightest of deadlines.
