    Annotation layer is broken

    Since the 2019 SP3.1 update I have the beachball with every dimension I add or subtract. Sometime it lasts for a second sometimes a minute. It's rendering the program useless. I'm running an iMac pro with plenty of free memory and I have restarted the program and the Mac. What is my best next move to remedy this situation?

    Yes I upgraded to Mojave. I'll try the undocking and let you know.

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    I have been running 2019sp3.1 on Mojave for a few weeks. Lately Im getting a lot of beach balls when I'm in the annotation layers on files that have used a lot of transparent objects. This did not happen on the same files before I updated. Has anybody else noticed an issue?
  4. When I apply a texture to an object, I have the ability to scale and rotate the texture on that object. When the texture is assigned by class is there a way to rotate or scale the texture? This is a problem when cabinet objects have doors with assigned texture grain running in different directions or if you want to control floor direction or scale.

    Until Next Time

    So sorry to see you go. I've been following your posts every day and they have really helped my VW experience. Best of luck to you and your family.

    Image Prop blocks sunlight

    Make the image bigger and put it further away
  7. Lumion looks like a great fast rendering program and the live sync plugin seems to integrate it well into VW, unfortunatly it is a PC only program. Is a live sync plug-in in the works for twinmotion? Is there any kind of time line for that?

    I find the SP3 noticeably smoother and quicker. Thank you for the great work. I might make the jump to Mojave this week.
  9. I heard a rumor from a reliable source that Twinmotion is working on a VW plug in

    Vectorworks Design Summit - 2018

    Sadly I could not make the summit this year. I really wanted to. Will there be any rebroadcasts of key notes or other means to join the fun after the fact?

    VWX 2019 SP1.1

    Any clues when SP2 is projected? I guess we’d all like to upgrade to Mohave soon. Waiting until it’s safe.

    rotating textures when they are assigned by class

    I guess thats the work around. Maybe scale and rotate control on class assigned textures can be on the wish list. Thx

    Teaser Tuesday - Image Effects - Vectorworks 2019

    This is a huge time saving feature for me! I'm back and forth to photoshop all the time. I find I'm alway lightening bitmaps in my projects. Thank you!!!!

    iMac Pro information

    I will add my two cents about my iMac Pro (8 core, Radeon Pro Vega 64) experience. I mostly do 3d design work and walk throughs in open GL. The video card makes open GL work much smoother and now that its not crashing anymore (hopefully) I'm very happy with the machine. Simple 2d work is only bit faster then my old 2012 27" iMac, but when my 2D work has many bitmaps there is a great improvement in speed. Since I keep multiple programs open, some running in the background while I work on VW, I believe the extra cores are helpful. If I'm creating an animation, I can jump to Mall or Word and I'm not aware at all the a rendering process is going on in the background. This was not the case in my old machine. If one wanted to optimize the VW experience on an iMac Pro, the 10 core machine has the highest single core speed. If you are doing a lot of long Renderworks rendreings or cinema 4d work, Mac my not be your best bet.

    iMac Pro information

    I just upgraded to 10.13.5 and I can no longer make VW2018 crash on my iMac Pro when using walkthrough or flyover in open GL. Until the upgrade, it was crashing often. very happy, now back to work.

    Superior Walls?

    I've just been using the standard 10" concrete thickness with sheetrock interior, but Id love to see a wall style for Superior walls as well.
  20. This may be a simple question, but I mapped at texture (A google earth image) on to at 3d site model. How do I manipulate the origin of the image?

    Moving the origin of a texture on a site model

    Thanks. I know that, but some how in the process of making the site model the object was placed inside of many groups. The dialog for offset was not coming up. Is there a tool that allows the repositioning of an image?
  22. I'm trying to ascertain which iMac I should buy in the next few weeks. My late 2012 iMac works well for most tasks but bogs down in multiple pane mode and when doing final quality renderworks. I make a lot of open GL animations and often have to have long waits. I guess the fastest video card might help here. I understand 2d work is a function of single core speed. Does the 4 additional cores but slower clock speed justify spending an additional $1300 for the comparable iMac Pro?

    top of the line iMac 27" 5k vs base iMac Pro

    Thanks for the input everyone. This is my professional desktop. I want to get the right one to last me the next 5-7years. I'm in the Mac ecosystem so I cant get a dedicated top of the line windows machine even though the value might be better.
  24. I've been running VW2017 on High sierra with out any incident so far. I figures moving everything to 2018 is an option if I hit a problem.
  25. SP1 came out today, so there isn't going to be much wait. As soon as 2017 SP5 comes out, I'll upgrade to High Sierra.
