Aximmetry covers a broad spectrum of the virtual production workflow so it's worth distinguishing a couple of areas for people working with it.
Generally, we consider three main roles:
- Studio Operators
- Scripter Engineers
- Graphics Artists
If you are interested in one or more of these roles you can find many useful documents in our online knowledge base (see links later).
You can go even deeper if you arrange online training with us by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Studio Operators run the production during show time.
Some of their responsibilities:
- Configuring studio hardware (e.g. cameras, tracking devices, video output devices, external controllers) in & out of Aximmetry.
- Calibrating lenses and tracking devices
- Setting up the input/output devices
- Setting up chroma keyer
- Recording video, audio, and tracking data
- Trigger actions during showtime (e.g. switching between cameras, trigger show elements, etc.)

A Scripter's role is to build and tweak Aximmetry projects for the special needs of the production.
Their main tasks:
- Creating Aximmetry projects
- Preparing automation of the virtual studio scene
- Building virtual production logic (e.g. switches, buttons, etc. used by the Studio Operator)
- Tweaking 3D rendering performance
- Creating animation and camera movement sequences

A Graphics Artist's role is to create the virtual reality part of a project. This role is about:
- Creating the scene from scratch using 3D modeling software (e.g. 3DSMax, Blender, Unreal Engine).
- Acquiring and adapting scenes. (Free or Paid)
- Optimizing 3D models for use of virtual production.
