  1. Curious to hear what other people do.. I've been stuck in letters-numbers, indicating department and plate no. (L1, R1 .. Lighting 1.. Rigging 1.. so on an so forth.) #1 is usually an Overview plated, followed by details of specific areas (#2..#3.. etc)
  2. I've frequently encountered issues with mouse clicks not registering when attempting to execute commands such as [Select; Flyover; ellipsis in Properties window] in Vision 2020 on my iMac. @bbudzon Is this a known issue?
  3. @BrandonSPP Is there a page or sticky announcement that includes fixture modes that are updated / added to the "Lights.wad" library on a weekly basis? c
  4. Throwing this out here as there have been some recent postings regarding Webinars on the Vectorworks Spotlight Usergroup on Facebook. It appears that they are only available to Service Select members in the UK. This is frustrating at face value because the Facebook group has users from across the globe. As a Service Select subscriber in the US, how do I access the content of these Webinars?
  5. I will have to pay specific attention to what I’m importing the next time this occurs.
  6. What does this notification mean? I haven't nailed down exactly where it originates from.
  7. Good discovery! Explains why I couldn’t render out at that size. I would suggest any formats that are viewable on a mobile device. (*.mov and *.mp4 come to mind) A large majority of the time we are sharing content that should be viewable on the go iPhone, Samsung Galaxy etc..) in addition to desktop media applications. Nope. Just talking about viewing Render Movies on additional devices (macOS, Windows, mobile devices and cloud services like Dropbox and Google Drive.)
  8. @bbudzon Are there any additional required codecs to render movies out of Vision 2020 on Windows 10? Experiencing some cross platform oddities when viewing on macOS Mohave.
  9. Daniel, can you tell me more about Syphon? I’m starting a project right now that I’m hoping to utilize NDI streams for applying content to LED Screens.
  10. What is the WAD time for an MVR file export to complete? When exporting single geometry or lighting fixture updates I'm waiting between 30-45 seconds.
  11. Is it possible to manually focus the spot/flood spread of a fresnel fixture while in Vision?
  12. @SimonRossiter It sounds like the fixture is operating correctly according to its DMX chart. Always check the chart first, because fixture profiles vary across lighting consoles and programmers.
  13. @bbudzon Can you share a step by step for creating an alpha mask from geometry that originated in Vectorworks? For example, I have a set piece in Vectorworks with over 20 arches. I would like to create an alpha mask to render the arch opening, which I would then apply to my model in Vision. How would I do that? p.s I have access to Cinema 4D and photoshop. p.p.s Will alpha maps help reduce or eliminate shadow map tearing on object faces in Vision?
  14. @Gunther Who would be able to provide some feedback here?
  15. So after spending some hours testing the capture card shared by @klinzey I have had the following experiences. It works successfully with Vision *BUT* that was on my MacBook Pro (10.13.x) running Windows 10 Home on Bootcamp. Not my ideal workstation. Jumping over to our previz workstation (Windows 10 Pro) is where I'm stumped. The Windows Device Manager recognizes that the card is connected, but using the Skype test as recommended by @bbudzon shows no card connected. Has anyone had success streaming video into Vision on a dedicated Windows 10 Pro workstation with a different capture card? I'd love to hear about your experience. @Gaspar Potocnik @nakedeye
