  1. Hi There I am contemplating upgrading to the latest MAC OS + VW 22. I am however still on a 2018MBP with intel chip. There seems to be lost of happy M1MAX people. It would be great to get some feedback from older machines/people?
  2. I find the best way is to copy paste from Lightwright the relevant fixture information. I have however wished this feature upon VW's legend/key. Hopefully someday.
  3. I've found running the 'Purge' tool helps to speed up instrument summary.
  4. Happy NY everyone, I've placed chain motors in my drawing and then moved the origin of the drawing. Now the chain motors still reference the old origin position. I've tried redrafting the chain motor, data tags, measurement labels all have the old origin point. The OIP shows the chain motor at the new origin position. Y=+4650. The reference point further down in the OIP references 'drawing origin' with Y=-1700 which is the old origin position. Any thoughts would be most welcome. Thanks DC
  5. Hi Rob just looking for the ETC lustre series 3 symbols in VSS. The only ones I can find have a red lamp base. Sadly this red feature disappears when I have 'Gel colour as the symbol fill colour'. They end up looking like a standard S4. Is it possible to remake them so they are similar to the lustre series 2 with roman numerals? Thanks Rob......

    Side arms

    The best way I have found to build booms with boom arms is to use the ladder position function. You can set individual height for horizontal pipes and you can remove one leg from your ladder. Sadly it does not count boom arms but with the time saved ( this boom took about 2 min to make) you can just count them. 6m boom.pdf
  7. Josh having just upgraded from 2020 to 2021 two days ago, the delay in the instrument summary is disconcerting. In VW 2020 it would take about five seconds to load and edit the summary, now it's closer to two minutes with VW 2021. Has there been a change to symbols that I am unaware of? Do I need to upgrade all my heritage symbols? I saw Tom's reference to inadequate lighting records. All my symbols have records. Is there a way to reload the instrument summary plug in like when it used to be your third party plug in? Hoping you can help D Just to add to this feed. Any new instrument summary made in 2021 is super fast. Any 2020 instrument summary is unbelievably slow. I guess I have to re-build my templates.
  8. Thanks Kevin, I run 2 external monitors from my 2018 15" MBP. I would like to know if egpu's may any difference to VW. If anyone has used one let me know. There has been a lot of posts on VW being incredibly slow. This may be a way to fix this issue. best DC
  9. Dear Spotlight users, has anyone used the new 'Blackmagic eGPU' with the 2018 mac book pro? I am keen to know if it helps with graphics. It mentioned it helps speed up openGL. I am sure there is a better place to post this but I do value the input of entertainment designers. Many thanks DC
  10. No have not been using Sams plug ins, however I have just used X coordinates in LW and as most units where 0.001 of a mm off the full number the paperwork started to look fairly ordinary. Easy to clean up but really just a fault of the mirror tool locking onto something ever so close to the centre line. Just need drop down menu to select the mirror reference point on the X or Y. Thanks for your time DC
  11. Hi Mark have you had any progress on this request? I was just about to put in the same one. Thanks DC
  12. Anytime Fabrice. BTW thanks for your comments on spotlights greatly needed improvements. I could not agree more! D
  13. Hi Fabrice, try holding the shift key as you click on the next lamp for repeats of the same ch number.
