  1. From my understanding this has not been 'fixed' in 2019. There is no report from the developer saying the rendering process has changed. Given 2019 is out now, I would imagine they will not fix this problem in 2018. I would say this won't be fixed till 2020. VW 2019 still continues to be the most frustrating peice of software in existence. The developer has got the software to the stage that it is in a mess and they have backed themselves into a corner. It may never recover and become an amazing useful timesaving product. The market opportunity for a competitor is enormous, but making software like this is an even bigger task. VW 2020 needs to NOT introduce a single new feature, but rather fix ALL of the defects of the software.

    Add support for Surface Dial

    yeah this is more relevant now that the Surface Studio 2 is out which has the horsepower to run VW...
  4. @Selin and @zoomer , thanks for your responses. @Hayden Schraishuhn manages all our communique to our local VW support team/distributor being OZcad. we have sent files to them and this has been escalated to Nemetschek. Apparently the only current solution is a pop up to say CineRender has crashed and that you are basically 'f$&ked' and you need to restart the program. This insight and knowledge is just amazing and will make my time so much more productive......NOT! But in all seriousness I can understand why you need to get more insight into what causing this catastrophic failure of the program...i want you to fix this! 🙂 If it will help, what is the best way to get you the file @Selin privately?
  5. @Selin please come to our office if you want to see this reproduced. i can reproduce it in any serious drawing multiple times a day. its really quite easy! in fact i can do it about 20-50 times a day 🙂

    Rendering Viewport turns everything black

    Jim, thanks for your reply. I don't post a lot... but i have been using VW for about 6-7 years now. our company owns 6 licenses too. we pay a lot of money for this software. to see this bug still roaming free and messing with peoples daily lives annoys the f%^k out of me. it frustrates the crap out of all my staff and causes much grief. its beyond a joke. you really need to sort this out. VW 2017 and 2018 are complete dogs of software. here are my steps to reproduce this on a daily level: click 'Update Viewport'.

    How to draw transparent LED screen or mesh?

    ok cool. thanks for this. how do i then map an image on it to also show the correct quality of the image due to the low resolution? i thought the LED tool could do this but it doesn't have transparency i actually already have the Martin symbols, but you cant map content over these...
  11. Hi, does anyone know how to draw transparent LED screens such as Martin LC Panel or even ColorWeb? I have VW 2018.
  12. Hi, can we please add official support for the Microsoft Surface Dial? especially on the Surface Book 2 and Studio where you can place it on the screen to get more features and options?! Being able to use it as a symbol selection tool would be amazing! with it showing the symbols...

    GrandMA2 Plug-in

    one thing that is annoying is it doesn't work with multi instance fixtures yet. This is a big problem for me with many Martin Stage Bars and Auras in stock. Hopefully this will be fixed soon! it is an awesome bit of plug-in and is very easy to use!
