    New Patch system and Vision 2020 Export

    I can see the DMX address field in the OIP but not in the spotlight numbering ergo I cannot patch with that tool. It's good both apps are following a standard, it would just be nice to have this stated somewhere in the manual (at least I did not see it) since it will change workflows for people.

    New Patch system and Vision 2020 Export

    Beforehand I think this is great and something we've asked for some time, so Thanks! On the other hand, I haven't found any information that specially shows how it works so here are some questions: - I am guessing that the "Channel" field has to be the Unit number, can this be changed? - I've tried to use the numbering tool to get the DMX address populated but haven't found it, is the patch window the only way to get it done? If so, this is something to reconsider... - I've seen the Vision data mapping has vanished and for what I've tried it uses the same fields as the patch window, is this correct? Is this editable?

    MVR vs ESC

    You probably have a large number of polys and that is why it's tacking that long. My workflow is to generate separate .esc or mvr files grouping things by department or whatever is easier to edit in Vision afterwards. This way if you have any updates to any part of your show you only re-export what has changed and not everything. My workflow will probably change with the implementation of mvr, but for now I stick to it. Regarding which file type to use, I'm currently using a combination of both, depending on what I am exporting and how I want to use it, again whatever is easier to manipulate in vision afterwards.

    Spotlight Numbering

    Just started a wishlist post, have a look and vote so it is changed as we use it.
  8. In reference to this post it would be nice to get some upgrades in the new numbering tool: - Ability to reorder the fields. I personally think it should affected by the lighting device parameters you see in the preference menu, if not at least being able to reorder within the tool. Also this way you can see everything that is checked at a glance. - Highlight and check mark seem rather confusing: To check mark any field a double click has to happen (and after the first click the field usually scroll down, so if you had the last field selected you will have to scroll down again and give it the second click) only one click would be wonderful

    Light Instrument Data Appearing in Different Places

    I'm not quite sure I understand your problem. I do see from your file you have 2 symbols, one which look like a stock symbol and one you have edited. The stock symbol inserts properly as a lighting device, and has the proper records attached to it. For some reason you have inserted it as a symbol in the drawing instead of a lighting device, not sure why/how... I've inserted it as a lighting device without any problem. The custom symbol in which you have added your logo and lens is made out of a lighting device, that is the reason it is not appearing in any report. You should edit the stock symbol by right clicking on it in the resource browser and editing de 2d par with your logo and afterwards de 3d for the lens. Have a look at the following video which might help.

    Change fixture type

    I am afraid there is no way of changing fixture mode within vision...

    Vision Orientation issue

    Yes. Select your fixtures, in the properties windows expand the Rotation tab and enter a value in the coordinate you want. It looks like some must have a different Y value, you can select all and change the value for all of them and then adjust...

    Vision Orientation issue

    In Vision change the rotation of anything you need, as simple as that. Once it is saved it will show up the proper way each time you load the /v3s file.

    Show unit mark only in dimensions?

    Is there any way of only showing unit mark in dimension text and not everywhere else? Other than using the trailer field in the dimension properties... Trying to have less keystrokes in but keep the unit mark.
