    Hi Anthony, In terms of preplotting kinesys motors you will have to do this by assigning the balls as a dmx transform, giving them a dmx address then you can control an axis (Z) as a 0-255 dmx value through attend or Sacn. You cannot unfortunately connect a kinesys control system, yet.... I am hoping one of my colleagues will respond to your ndi network question. All the best Tom

    Vision 2019 SP3 MVR Improvements

    Have to agree with Tina and Cory from a UK perspective. however most prospects using capture are looking for ease of use and not needing to redraw or swap geometry on import. (Referring to capture workflow). I am a long term Vectorworks user who used to export to capture for visuals A lot of the Vision eccentricities can be overlooked if send to vision worked flawlessly in terms of syncing all information (and I mean everything, perfectly). It is a visualizer not a separate application. it is cheaper than wyg though! keep up the good work it’s nearly there.

    Are you in top plan or 3d?

    2d/3d Label Legends

    So you can have a legend that displays in both 2d and 3d. A 3d label legend should only display in 3d and 2d the same. You also need to tell the fixture in what view to show the 3d label legend. This can be done in the OIP or by double clicking the instrument. Would recommend using classes for 3d field labels for this. Best Tom
