  1. 3d Legends are applied like Jesse says above, however I cannot see a way to make sure all of your fixtures display a 3d legend view to front or right by default. I have tried editing the light info record defaults through the spotlight preferences menu but it seems to be locked out. I tend to put a default fixture on a position with al of these options pre set, then I duplicate that fixture and replace with symbol as appropriate, this saves having to select multiple instruments and selecting 3d view. Unless anyone can find a way of pre-setting this I will make a feature request via Jira. Thanks Tom
  2. Use select similar tool to select then modify - convert - replace with symbols. This works providing you class your extrudes by flight case type.
  3. lit fog wont show in open GL try fast renderworks or make a render style.
  4. Pretty sure the answer is 42 but 'deep thought' didn't understand the question. In the absence of an answer Kevin's books are pretty fantastic. I have 'Entertainment Design'.
  5. Sure, I will also add that to the list. kind regards Tom W
  6. I will investigate and add it to the list, Kind regards. Tom W
  7. Morning Andrew You can create additional Hoists, I duplicated some existing hoists and then used attach record to change default values, however I could not find manufacturer field. I inserted the new hoist by inserting a standard one and then selecting custom in the OIP where I was able to select the new hoist symbol. Then I was able to select Manufacturer 'Other' in the list. Let me know which brand of Hoists you would like to see within the program. kind regards. Tom W
  8. I have seen this a few times, Would love to know what causes this. One user repaired their user folder which did stop this from happening.
  9. Does anyone remember LPS pro? I had it before Lightwright and you could email the hire shop your order from within the application. To be honest I think I used that functionality twice. Anyone else use it?
  10. The fourth screen grab depicts a file path referencing a Vectorworks file location?! please explain?
  11. Hi Floriane, You should email tech support, the issue you are portraying could be to that your login account doesn't have write access to the folders that the Vectorworks Application need to write the content to. You could also try reinstalling the application. Best Tom
  12. Thanks Jake, I think I will pursue feature requesting lens/barrel rotation. The recommended workflow is to focus instruments in Spotlight First and then export MVR. You can focus in vision but I am worried that focuses may get trashed when you next export MVR. Apologies for the delay. Best wishes Tom W
  13. Can you upload a screenshot of what you are trying to achieve jake? either rotating the lens tube would be one option or having independently unlimited movements on shutters like the adb warp fixtures. would be an interesting feature request if you are currently unable to achieve the cuts you want to achieve
  14. Hi, Have you tried posting this in Braceworks. You could try using insert drop in the Braceworks menu.
  15. Thats worth Noting 'screen aligned'. I shall remember that. Thanks Kareen!
  16. You could just copy the 3d attributes of the symbol into the workspace and convert them to polygons and then paste them into the 2d attribute of the symbol. Fix the symbol rather than the legend. Avoid using top view as you have limited graphic control of the appearance of your plot.
  17. OK, so you need to specify by fixture upon which view you would like the 3d lable legend displayed. I will attach a screen grab.... Bad news... Top isn't an option. Why do you need a 3d lable legend in a 2d top view?
  18. Hi Kareen, Your viewport is not in top/plan. It needs to be in top plan to function! Your viewport is currently in top... 2D Lable Legend fields will only display in Top/Plan not top. best Tom
  19. You could use the point loading tool enter the weight and check show symbol and then select symbol, selecting the symbol from the resource browser.
