  1. Any news on this? Or any workaround to get them to disappear?
  2. @orso b. schmid I haven't had any time to play around with 2020 until know. I did convert all the files and made a new folder, I'm trying to figure it out but haven't had any success. Here is how I see thing in 2019 (and how I've seen for the past years) in the resource manager: When trying to use a plug in as the title block (I can see me workgroup folder and navigate to title block for instance) I see this: But in 2020 I don't get the second workgroup folder even though it is configured the same as before. Resource Manager: Title Block manager: Any ideas?
  3. I'm glad to help and get things the way I want! Just too many abbreviations, what is a TO and VE and where should I generate any of them? Are they served with or without ice? ūü§Ē
  4. I've used DMX transform for quite some time, only to move thing up and down, besides dealing with inches to figure out heights works great.. Today I wanted to rake a truss con "variable speed hoist" and found out the now (I believe this was not the case of old and beloved Vision 2.3) everything rotates around the local origin, this is also stated in the manual. Is there any workaround to get thing to rotate on the object axis? If not, I cannot figure out one good reason to rotate anything around the local origin in the entertainment world... Please someone explain what the benefit would be.... EDIT: I did find a workaround, if you place the whole object you want to move centered to the local origin in VW, it will rotate on its center. The only problem with that is that you have to move everything again in Vision in inches.... I really do hope I'm missing something here...
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. This has been a great guide for the past years, thanks @orso b. schmid For some reason tin 2020 I can't see anything in the WG library folder within VW, any ideas what has changed?
  8. I have always used some real picture, but I made my self this exact same question a couple of days ago... Not to meh knowledge, maybe some kind of script?
  9. 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.
  10. Just started a wishlist post, have a look and vote so it is changed as we use it.
  11. 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
  12. @A.D.K. there are a bunch of video tutorials on youtube, here is a playlist from WV for entertainment:
  13. @Charlie Winter I've only tried Mac OS, works on both 10.13 and 10.14 for sure, haven't tried previous versions or Windows...
  14. 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.
