  1. When you render the viewport using Renderworks, does it appear blank? If so, have you tried zooming out or in to see if the image appears? There is a bug regarding this and thus far the only solution I am aware of is restarting the document. If you have your render cache restore preference turned on, it become just an annoyance as your viewports will load fully rendered.
  2. To be clear, the issue I have occurs when rendering on the design layer. It always involves an image texture. The textures in question seem to always work correctly In OpenGL but disappear when RenderWorks takes over. If the image texture also includes reflectivity or bumps, those will still work. It’s the image that disappears. It doesn’t happen to every texture, but once an issue occurs, it becomes reoccurring. A quick solution is to open the edit dialogue for the texture in question and then close it. Just considering issues with textures that I recall off the top of my head, I wonder if mirroring might cause that?
  3. Check out the VWX tab in the edgelightrgb.com site. Shameless plug.
  4. You are welcome. Let me know how that works for you.
  5. I have no idea if this will work, but you can try it. There is one function that fires a script that has been converted to a tool which was written by Andy Dunning of Landru Designs, therefore, I cannot give that away. It toggles your file from feet/inches to meters. VERY handy. You can ask him directly for the script if you like. Otherwise, these all fire quick key commands which means you will have to modify your workspace to garner many of the remaining key functionalities. There should be two pages of commands. PAGE 1: Duplicate Array / Align-Distribute / Scale Objects / Layer toggle set 1 / Layer toggle set 2 Number instruments / Replace Symbol / Rotate / Connect-Combine / Trim Return to home screen / Imperial-Metric (NA) / Render Bimap / Create viewport / toggle to second page PAGE 2: Return to page 1 / Export Image file / Import image file / Export DWG / Import DWG Create Symbol / Label Legend Manager / Lock-unlock (toggle) / Export Worksheet / Page Setup (printing) Sweep / Extrude Along Path / Multiple Extrude / Taper Extrude / Set lighting options Hopefully this will prove helpful to someone. If nothing else, perhaps it will give users some additional ideas on what to do with a StreamDeck. I find it to be an amazing time saver. VWX.streamDeckProfile.zip
  6. I’ll see if I can figure that out tomorrow.
  7. I finished a new set of audience image props and starting with vector based artwork and create the image props with alpha transparencies makes all the difference. Much improved.
  8. Pat, I had forgotten about that thread! Thanks for the insight!
  9. They are image props. The record idea is interesting, but I am always hesitant to add any complexity to the drawing that might not be necessary to keep the drawing efficient. Also, you definitely want to randomize your props which might be problematic with the seating tool. Of course I guess you could lay out a symbol instance and then randomly select and replace.
  10. Funny you should mention that and thanks for the compliment. They are but created from readily available images online. The funny part is I’ve been using those for years and starting this afternoon I am making a new set that should be much better. Got a couple of ideas I want to try out.
  11. My guess is the little crosses is the loci created by BraceWorks. Locate the class associated with the loci to turn it off. I don’t recall what the class is called.
  12. That did seem to be the issue. rDesign and Andy, thanks for your input. I think I can make this work with a stock HDRI background. Eventually I need to learn how to make one myself, but that is probably a job for future me. Thanks guys!
  13. It is a regular image assigned as a panorama.
  14. I am working on rendering an outdoor project (perhaps a bit optimistic in the age of COVID-19) and am using a panorama as a background. The RenderWorks camera and the sheet layer viewport are both set at 600dpi. Rendering is in Final Quality so that we are all on the same page. The issue is the transition between the panorama and the model. I am getting a lot of artifacts. I originally rendered this at 300dpi with the same issue. Any suggestions? Hoping this is something simple I can sort out.
  15. Mine are all based on shortcuts. There are a couple of scripts that I converted to tools to which I then added shortcuts. I don’t entirely recall the process for this as I’ve only done it once. I am more than happy to share my profile. I’d have to figure out how to do that though. 🙂
