BTWYG Introduction

BTWYSIWYG (BTWYG) is an award-winning program that offers lighting designers a customized 3D CAD, reporting,  and pre-visualization application, included in the BlackTrax software suite. Use BTWYG to create a virtual representation of the Space.

BTWYG exports information to BlackTrax as a ".btx" file, that BlackTrax will use as a blueprint for tracking in the Space. If tracking with moving fixtures, you must include fixture position and patching information in the ".btx" file.

When connected to BlackTrax, BTWYG can be the visualizer for what is happening in the Space. BTWYG fully simulates tracking and fixture movement using information from BlackTrax or other data sources.

The following section on BTWYG covers only the features directly related to BlackTrax. For an in-depth understanding of BTWYG and its full capabilities, please refer to the current WYSIWYG Reference Guide.

Tip: You may consult a registered BlackTrax Expert to assist with any portion of a BlackTrax project, including the transfer of information from BTWYG to BlackTrax.
