  1. Im finding myself constantly at odds with the Truss Cross objects & constantly deleting them - sometimes layers of them after a single action (adding or deleting truss, lights, etc). Theres absolutely no use for them in my current workflow. Can these be disabled? Cheers
  2. Why on earth does the dispersion hatch now look like this? Untitled5.pdf I know how to replace the default hatches with the horrible new hatch, I just take the old hatches and replace the new ones, keeping the hatch names intact. Can you force VW to default to specific hatches for audio dispersion? Would be tedious to have to do this every time.
  3. I think I figured it out - something to do with my workspace and legacy hoist tools.
  4. Hi Sam VW2021 SP4 on windows. Cheers Symo
  5. Hi All When I select Spotlight>Hoists, i get a msg that says "SelectHoistsVW not in plug-ins folder". Ive tried to uninstall/install VW and the problem persists. How can I get my hoists menu back? Cheers Symo
  6. Hi Tom Copy that and thanks for the helpful hint re rendering.
  7. Hi Tom Here it is: Light_Render_Issue.vwx I populated the pipe with some fittings, created a couple of sheet layer view ports, re-opened the file - and the issue presented.
  8. Im having an issue with light symbols distorting after hidden-line renders, as seen here: LX Fixture Issue.pdf It only affects the 3D part of the symbol. The issue was first noticed in V2020 and may have been present before this. The work-around is to use the Refresh Lighting Devices command. Has anyone else come across this?
  9. Hi there Im having an issue trying to get VW to show barndoors in my schematic views in VW2021 SP2. I can insert barn doors to the fresnel symbol as an accessory - this shows correctly in 2D and 3D views. But I when I update the schematic view it doesnt show. Ive also tried generating a new schematic view for the fresnel w/ barndoors - but to no avail. Is there a secret to this? Cheers
  10. Cheers Pat - but I couldnt make this work-around work in this case. The only attribute that would copy is the colour. So I would still need to individually set each with pan. tilt and kind (spot, point, etc). When dealing with several light objects, I need to be able to edit parameters of several objects together. I cant edit multiple light objects in either OIP or visualisation palette in the design Layer.
  11. I like to use multiple light objects for renders, rather than use just spotlight symbols - as I dont need to create focus points (which can get very tedious). For some reason, VW doesnt like me duplicating a light object after I set this with all the required attributes (colour, type, beam angle , etc) - then editing all light objects together in the Visualise palette. I can successfully duplicate the light object in the design layer: but when I try to select multiple light objects in the Visualiser palette and edit an attribute for all - the names of all duplicated light objects disappear and the objects can no longer be edited. Even better, when a viewport is created from the design layer, most of the duplicated light objects inherit some very odd names: After this happens, I can still only edit the original light object - "Light 1" in this case. It seems to me that this workflow is perfectly logical - would love to know if Im doing something wrong. Heres the VW file. Light Render Issue.vwx Cheers
  12. Hi Kevin Cheers for the update. Looking forward to SP4!
  13. Ive posted this in the Rendering forum also. Ive started seeing a strange issue whereby I create viewports on sheet layers, override the light objects (both from Spotlight & RW lights) until it looks right, render, close the file, re-open, re-render - then all of my Spotlight light objects turn-off for no apparent reason. The VW light object dont do this. I then need to go back to the design layer and re-create the viewport to get it to render properly. Ive attached a sample file with most of the geometry ripped-out (for IP reasons). Render test.vwx Another problem that I regularly run into are VW light objects blanking-out their names when I try to edit them in the Visualisation/Lights palette - normally when I select multiple lights and edit several at once. When this happens, I cant edit them in the sheet layer. Any insight would be appreciated.
