  1. Hi Mike send the file into UK tech and we will take a look all the best tom w
  2. You could create empty viewports with the visualisation applied to generate the legends separately. Can’t think of another way yet as I am without my Mac.
  3. If no-one can come up with a solution, I will file a feature Request. Best wishes Tom W
  4. If you right click Edit Light, is the fixtures colour Red?
  5. Managed to get it to connect, but calculation continuously fails. Please get in touch with UK tech. All the best Tom W
  6. Hi Mike Just out of interest if the flown circular truss is horizontal when you make the connection then rotate it with the 2d rotate tool on screen plane from that connection do you still get the crash? I will take a look at your file. All the best Tom W
  7. Hi Anthony 1. is there anywhere to be able to access the layers that was created in VectorWorks so you can turn off layers? This is not possible, I trigger a saved view in Vectorworks prior to export MVR to control visibilities. 2. Is there any way of accessing ,’’say shutters in a source 4 profile ‘’ Yes, this is Window - Software Console, Then Select the Fixture. 3. Is it possible to make changes in vision and for Vectorworks to show the update . Any live update capability Not yet. You can merge updates from Vectorworks into Vision but not the other way back. All the best Tom W
  8. Good question, I don't believe so yet. Wondering if anyone else knows? @JBenghiat Without hanging positions would be interesting to discuss lighting position field workflow.
  9. 2 things, 1 have these ever worked? In the OIP of a selected lighting device what does the use Legend field say? Select an orientation. 2 What classes have you used to control the visibility's?
  10. Not within a legend but what you are describing could be solved with data visualisation. 1:25 in the following video
  11. 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
  12. Hi Scott We have been looking at your file in the office, my colleague George will be in touch shortly. All the best Tom W
  13. fyi, You can add a shortcut for this on your task bar!
  14. Hi Alex. I will hopefully have these webinars in place before christmas. Workload depending. There will be content available on our new training site. Vectorworks University. Best wishes Tom W
  15. There will be webinars for these workflows soon. I will post on the forum when they are available.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Create a custom report - Spotlight Reports - create report Objects with the record Hanging Position. Select fields and click OK
  19. OK, That's odd, worked for me, What service pack are you on? If you are on the current then you will need to contact tech support.
  20. Just to confirm you are using export ESC?
  21. Hi Greg, so you can make multiple selections using find and modify or shift and click then you can doubleclick a fixture edit the colour slot and click apply to all.
