    Kihei, HI
  1. Great, Glad we can get it fixed, do you happen to know another way of getting this type of effect created?
  2. Thanks Michael, It was totally in the VW Preferences. Cheers!
  3. Hello all, I have made a drawing that consist of about 20 area lights that I have created. When I go to render the drawing I notice that the area lights that I have created are showing their geometry right through other solid objects. Is there a way for me to stop this from happening?
  4. Hey Andrew, I made a sample file that contains the pipe and drape with out the image applied yet. The resource browser also contains the image texture that I want to apply to the drape. I am using Vectorworks 2012.
  5. Hey Andrew, I am using Vectorworks "softgoods" tool. I have been playing around a bit and I think it might actually be the way that I am importing the image file into Vectorworks. How I am importing is like this: -Right clicking inside the Resource Browser and selecting "New Resource in document Renderworks Texture" -Edit Texture menu opens and I name the texture and to import the picture I have been going to the "Shaders" section and under "Color" have been selecting image and importing my file that way. Is this the proper way or am I way off?
  6. Hello all, I am trying to add a simple image file to some white drape that I have added to my ballroom to simulate video being displayed on it. I have imported the image file as a Renderworks texture and applied all the default settings. When I go into the 3D curtain options in my drape I have assigned the materials type as image and chose the image texture that I created and it gives me these errors in the Vectorscript. Error: _3150 _177 - Index outside array limits Warning: _3150 _177 - Color index must be from 0 to 65535. Does anyone know what I might have done wrong?
  7. Hello Vectorworks community. I am trying to figure out if it is possible for our Audio Engineer and Rigging Supervisor can create Vectorworks files that can then be combinded into one file. So it would not be one file that is passed to another but two files that could be combined at the end. is this possible?
  8. I have designed a plot with multiple lighting positions and I am trying to figure out the way that you create viewports so that you can isolate each of the lighting positions off and display all of them on a separate sheet layer for the lighting crew to view. Can does anyone know how this is done?
  9. But how would you go about hanging it on the vertical truss to begin with?
  10. I am trying to position a Colorblaze 72 on a vertical stick of truss that I have and have had no luck figuring it out. Does anyone have any ideas on how to achieve this?
  11. I wanted to see if there is a way to import sketchup models from the warehouse into Vectorworks 2011 and keep the sketchup models original textures attached after the import. Every time that I try to import a model all I end up with is the wire frame of the model. Does anyone know how?
  12. that is exactly what I am trying to do, any suggestions on where to begin!
  13. Okay hopefully I can explain this right since I couldn't find a good picture to summit. I am trying to see if someone can tell me how to do this or at least tell me the tools I will need to do this and I can go do the leg work. I am trying to draw drape on a 50 foot section of truss that basically drops from the truss goes back up and makes an "U" then drops back down again and goes up makes "U" sections down along the truss. I have tried varies way but have failed, can someone give me a hint? Cheers, Vincent
  14. I have noticed that there is a way to make a class for example "Truss" and then have a sub class in that class with a dropdown menu where you could put for example "upstage truss" and "downstage truss." Does anyone know how to execute this? Cheers, Vincent
