New tools mean new workflows, and ETC has a long history of creating online tools to help Eos users evolve their programming skills. Now ETC has released a new video learning series focusing on Eos Augment3d, the new 3D programming environment released with Eos v3.0.
The 38-part video series may be found on YouTube or in the “Expert Topics” section of the Eos Family Video Learning Series, along with a new workbook to accompany the videos.
The video series includes instruction on getting started with Augment3d, with topics such as importing 3D models and objects, adding, patching, moving and focusing fixtures, working with focus palettes in XYZ mode, and working with Staging Mode in Live and Blind. Additional videos take users through the Fixture Position Estimation Tool, which uses a series of focus palettes to calculate your fixtures’ positions in 3D space, and the Focus Wand, which allows iRFR and aRFR focus remote app users to interact with their rig in augmented reality.
For additional in-depth discussions of Augment3d topics, users can explore the Eos and Augment3d Study Hall playlist on YouTube. ETC created Study Hall as a means of helping end-users use pandemic-induced downtime to improve their professional skills. Recordings of this summer’s Augment3d series are available on the YouTube channel, and additional Eos-related webinars continue to post on a regular basis.
ETC’s educational efforts with Eos do not end there. Because many end-users are teaching and learning remotely this year, ETC has also created an Eos resource page for educators. This page aims to help educators take advantage of teaching tools like the Augment3d virtual Light Lab, and to help them navigate other online Eos resources like the ETC LearningStage.
“ETC has a longstanding commitment to education outreach – from student mentorship programs, to professional development workshops like CUE,” explains Nick Gonsman, ETC’s Product Manager for Lighting Controls. “As lighting control technology evolves, we continue that commitment by expanding our industry-leading education series – free and online – to help students and professionals grow their skills.”
