What is an ESF3D file?
An ESF3D file is a lighting control file used by versions 3 and above of Electronic Theater Control's (ETC) Eos software. It contains instructions that Eos uses to control theater lighting during a performance. It also contains 3D lighting control programming, created using ETC Augment3d.
ETC Eos is a family of theater lighting control hardware that runs accompanying control software, also named Eos. Using the Eos software, lighting designers can design, save, and run theater lighting sequences, referred to as shows.
Version 3 of Eos includes a feature named Augment3d, which allows lighting designers to create and program within a 3D representation of their theater lighting rig. When a designer saves a show file that contains Augment3d data, that show is saved as an ESF3D file. Optionally, if a designer wants to save their show without its Augmet3d data, they can instead save the show as an .ESF2 file.
How to open an ESF3D file
You can open an ESF3D file with versions 3 and above of ETC's Eos software, via the software's file browser. While Eos software is available primarily on Eos family lighting control consoles, you can also download Windows and Mac versions of the software from ETC's website (linked below).
