  1. Following. Same issue. DMX source is also Surface Book 2.


    I've tried rendering on a couple of different machines (Razr then Alienware) and am getting the same time dilation issue when rendering. I have to use Premiere to adjust the video clip speed.


    This is only speaking for the video clips that Vision will render. I drew (32) X4 Bar 20's, and neither a Razr nor Alienware will render a movie with those fixtures on in medium-medium-medium quality at 800x600 at 30FPS.

    It kind of worked for me in files you can find HERE. Try checking a few things...



    -In the Object Info Palette, make sure your Lighting Devices have "James Thomas 4-Light Molefay" in the fixture mode field.

    -Check that the "Universe" and "U Address" fields have the correct values.



    -Check the DMX Viewer to see that you're outputting the DMX values where you need them. DMX > DMX Viewer

    -Change the DMX Provider to something else and then back to whichever protocol you need. Sometimes toggling this works for me. DMX > Change DMX Provider.

    -Question.... Does changing the ColorTemperature of the fixture crash your Vision too? Maybe save your file before you test this.

  3. @bbudzon... I figured it out. I think I was just expecting Ctrl-Z to work right off the bat. HERE are some test files.


    Selecting the ColorForce72's, let's say I want to move all SR a few clicks.

    -I grab them all

    -Position > click into the Position X field

    -mouse wheel up

    -All the fixtures are now the same XYZ position

    -I freak out

    -Ctrl Z... Nothing happens

    -I freak out more wish I had saved my file

    -Edit > Undo a few times, and everything is fine


    I realized today after playing around that Ctrl Z does nothing while I'm in a text field (such as Position X).


  4. @jcogdell  Thanks for the reminder on those features.


    I guess I was just spoiled by the lighting Instrument Summary Tool that allows for easy formatting and addition/subtraction of displayed attributes.


    Spotlight > Rigging > Create Hoist Symbol Key is close but does not include counts. Spotlight > Rigging > Create Hoist Worksheet isn't as pretty nor as easy to fit inside of a Title Block Border.


    I've started looking into the worksheets on your recommendation and that of other users in the forum. They're very exciting, and a great workaround.


    I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a plugin that can provide consistent formatting between Lighting Instruments, Hoists, and Truss.

  5. If your "Address" field in VWX is mapped to the "Address" field in LW6... and if your Setup > Address Format is "Universe i.e.- 2/130]" ... then the "Address" column in LW6 should come across in LW6 as "U/DMX" format.


    If your LW6 "Address" column is in "U/DMX" format, LW6 should also populate the LW6 "Universe" and "DMX#" columns. This will enable you to...


    -Copy the LW6 "Universe" column and paste the info into the LW6 "User 1" column.

    -Copy the LW6 "DMX#" column and paste the info into the LW6 "User 2" column.

    -Pop back into VWX.

    -Using the "Find And Modify" tool, copy the info from the "User 1" fields to the "Universe" fields.

    -Using the "Find And Modify" tool, copy the info from the "User 2" fields to the "U Address" fields.

    -Export to Vision.
