Julio Leite from Lighting Bits shared some beautiful insights on the significance of a powerful visualisation tool in today's live event industry:

"Lollapalooza is a multi-day music festival renowned for its diverse lineup of artists spanning various genres such as rock, hip-hop, electronic, and indie. It typically takes place in a large outdoor venue, that in our scenario was the Autódromo José Carlos Pace or also known as Autódromo de Interlagos, and has attracted tens of thousands of attendees each day."

"For the past three years, we've relied on Capture as our Pre-Viz Software, facilitating our lighting operators and programmers to thoroughly test and pre-visualise their shows in a meticulously crafted 3D environment before taking the stage. This ensures that every lighting cue and effect is flawlessly executed, enhancing the overall experience for both performers and attendees."

"In essence, Lollapalooza represents a harmonious fusion of artistic expression and technical innovation, culminating in an unforgettable experience that transcends mere entertainment. It is a testament to our dedication to excellence and our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in live event production."

"This is our third year utilizing Capture in our 3D studio as our Pre-Viz software. Its exceptional features enable seamless Import and Export capabilities through MVR, significantly optimising our workflow. Upon import, we just go and establish the ArtNet connection from the Lighting Console to both Capture and Stage, then we do the adjustments looking and comparing the Capture to the actual Stage. The intuitive selection tools allow for precise control, even with numerous fixtures and layers, thanks to the remarkable selection shortcuts. The addition of New Beam Sampling, coupled with the renowned PBR textures, further enhances the realism of our visualisations."
