    Feature Request: NDI Support

    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.

    Exporting MVR

    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.

    Fresnel Spot-Flood Focus

    Is it possible to manually focus the spot/flood spread of a fresnel fixture while in Vision?

    Martin Encore Performance Profile: Zoom backwards?

    @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.

    Texture Reflectivity

    @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?

    Video Capture Cards in Vision

    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

    Using Spotlight Numbering - Selection Holds

    Close and reopen the file. I believe this is a known issue.

    Texture Reflectivity

    @bbudzon You shared with me a good explanation about the current state of textures in Vision. Could you share that here as well?

    GrandMA2 Console --> Vision 2019

    @klinzey Great! If I encounter anything different I'll follow up here.
  11. I'm involved with a project right now previz'ing with Vision 2019 (Windows 10) and GrandMA2 onPC. They are talking to each other via MAnet protocol. I have not yet had an opportunity to test Vision 2019 with a real desk. Will Vision 2019 listen to MAnet from MA Hardware (Full-Size, Light, etc.), or should I be prepared to output Art-Net or sACN? Thanks!

    How to get media server into Vision

    What is the affect of Universe & Channel in the 'Select Vision Video Source' window? Does it allow for stop / play of video content when opened in Vision?

    Saved Views in Vision

    I’ve discovered the view hot keys on the keyboard to navigate quickly around Vision. What is the workflow for updating these keys, or are there other keys available for updating custom views? Thanks, C
