Many programs can carry out a range of the activities needed in much of the design process for theatre. Since the high-end software is really designed for the commercial production of games, television and film effects, they offer features that are unnecessary, complex and expensive. It is worth considering for whom the software was designed. The needs of an interior designer or architectural model designer are rather different from a film effects specialist or the creator of flying logos. Bear in mind that frequently the more expensive programs take far longer to learn, at least to learn fully, and often need far bigger computers to run them.
Once it is digitized by a scanner, video capture, digital camera, or taken from elsewhere in the digital domain, an image may be edited, manipulated and incorporated into other works (a film or 3D model, for example). Some paint programs, if they have an animation tool, can deal with the moving image as well as the still, by breaking it down into frames. Video titling, effects and editing is a reasonably recent line of multimedia software and is only of use to the theatre designer who works in multimedia, and plenty of other texts deal with this area.
However, it is worth being prepared to pay for software that really does provide the features necessary. Building a model is a reasonably time-consuming project compared with the quick sketch or an exploratory plan but it is the most closely related to the intended end-product, that is a 3D representation of the world of the text. Though it is unlikely to be the only means of exploration it does yield the most useful information about the arrangement of space, the play of colours, textures and forms, and the practical details needed about sight-lines.
