  1. I want to add a diffused front panel in front of a video wall so the wall image shows thru but is slightly softened. or is there a way of diffusing the video image apart from manipulation of the original in something like photoshop? Thanks in advance.
  2. Thanks Mark, I've managed to map it to a button on my 3D connexion mouse.
  3. Hi, I'm trying to add in a command to my right click menu for Top/Plan View or Command & 5 on a Mac. I've found command 4 and 6 on the edit workspace menu but can't seem to fine this one. Any ideas anyone?
  4. On the VW2020 Spotlight introduction film last year using the Kiss tour as an example I can see a steel connection between the hoist and the truss, is this part of brace works does anyone know or part of the main spotlight module?
  5. Hi Conrad, trying to moving the legend text to the top. Tried editing it with no joy...suggestions?
  6. Any ideas on how to edit the layout of the ConnectCAD legend?
  7. Starting to play around with this a bit now. I'm wondering from a data display side of things as we currently have 2D and 3D layouts in label label manager, could we have a schematic view one so the channel/dmx etc is displayed only in the schematic view and in say the plan view of the pip/boom/truss has no data display. Thoughts?
  8. Hi all, anyone using the new spotlight UK metric template with all the new classes and layers on be aware there is an issue if you try and connect anything in ConnectCAD. There is something called 'circuit' in the template which prevents this so go to the resource browser, a folder marked UK template files - delete the one marked circuit and you should be fine.
  9. Hi Tamsin, no joy either way. I've edited crops the same way for years so I know the way I've been doing it work. is this a bug?
  10. Hi all, I've been trying to edit the size of a viewport and crop it in. In the past I just double click on the viewport its self and the surround pops up with the nodes to adjust the size. Doesn't seem to be happening now. Any ideas?
  11. The commands aren't that easy to find. There is a ConnectCAD workspace in the application folder, this wasn't seen until I put it into the VW Workspace folder in application support.
  12. If you have an existing (2019) licence for ConnectCAD is a small upgrade cost as well as the addition too your service select.
  13. Hi Wes, here you go. I've tried lots of different permutations of the criteria but can't get the two trusses to take the colour coding. Max Truss Colours Data Viz.vwx
  14. Afraid not. I can get truss to colour no problem but as for Hanging positions not at all.
  15. Hi. I'm trying to use the data visualisation command to set truss colour coding. It works for truss just fine but not truss that has been converted into a hanging position. `Is there a away of showing these as well?
  16. Hi, I've a drawing where the units are set in imperial and the X/Y and heights are shown that way however the point loadings are in kilograms. I can't seem to find any way of changing this. My drawing units are set to feet and inches.
  17. I've now tried a powered external USB hub and still not working under Mac OS on my MacBook Pro however in bootcamp on the same machine I can see separate sources so I guess its a Mac thing.
  18. So I purchased a second one of the USB capture devices and using Gaspars system of looking in quicktime I could see both sources however in Vision the second card could be seen but just showed black and if I selected that it caused vision to crash. Both input cards work fine on their own. I tried the same thing on my Alienware windows 10 machine and viola! works fine, two separate inputs on two separate screens. I did have a few issues seeing the cards on my Mac laptop depending on which ports I was using, I'm wondering if an external powered USB hub would do the trick. I'll let you all know how I get on.
  19. Has anyone had success using more than one of the capture devices to feed different screens with different feeds at the same time?
  20. Thanks Klinzey, not sure what I was doing wrong but its working perfectly now and yes no real setting up.
  21. @klinzey Hi Klinzey, I bought the capture card as mentioned however when selected in vision it crashes the program. What setup do you do in VW for it? just select capture card?
  22. I've used ConnectCad for a few years now and use it for designing a control & data layout in all my lighting plots. It would certainly work for audio.
  23. Hi Alex71, Spotlight>Spotlight Numbering make sure increment by number of channels is selected and as long as the fixture mode is set in the object info pallet (4th item down) for each specific fixture this will increment that many channels.
  24. Hi Alex, go to Spotlight then Spotlight numbering. You have a universe option, I usually do a letter prefix on the address so prefix say B/ and the address of say 25 will show up as B/25. Is this what you're aiming to do? Max
