Using one production suite from beginning to end saves you time and money, but also gives you confidence and the ability to make changes on the fly.
Use d3 to win the job
Create a quick 3d sketch of your stage, import it quickly into d3, apply some content and view the result in real time from any position. Explore options quickly, so you can find best ones to present to client. Present your concepts directly in d3’s simulator, answer client questions there and then, rather than waiting for renders.
Congratulations, you just won the job.
Use d3 to explore and prove
Continue to develop your project inside d3 – creatively as well as technically. Explore pixel pitches, simulate lens ratios and prepare output feeds. Create content templates and validate your test clips to find out what works best before you spend your content budget. Render updates to stage movies or present directly to the client.
Your workflow is taking shape.
Use d3 to create the show
Verify content, import audio and start sequencing your show up. Nail down the last technical details and test all signal connections in the studio. Check out different camera moves for those important moments. Regularly update your client with eye-to-eye meetings and fly-through movies.
Things are looking good.
Use d3 for show integration
Plug in your d3 machines, map your d3 output feeds to the LED processor, line up projectors and prove audio output. Input MIDI, Artnet and OSC to the d3 timeline for full live control. Configure the understudy system and automatic matrix switching.
Your virtual reality just became real.
Use d3 for playback
Operate the show, tweak sequencing, apply some colour correction, and finalise cue lists. No surprises really, you’ve been watching the show in your 3D simulator for months!
Use d3 for live operation
Operate or babysit the show. Enjoy it, you’re in full control.
The greatest show on earth. Made by You.
