    Spotlight vs Braceworks (An Example Calculation)

    @James Russell I am not seeing your error I was able to open your file and run the cal just fine. What version of Vectorworks are you on?

    Feature Request: NDI Support

    @Daniel B. Chapman It looks like you don't have an image texture on the polygon. The image you see on the object is how the video will be displayed in Vision. http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FAttributes%2FMapping_image_fills.htm&rhsearch=Image mapping&rhhlterm=Image mapping&rhsyns=

    New Patch system and Vision 2020 Export

    @Gaspar Potocnik I hope below will get you up and running. Vectorworks is using the MVR data format and this can not be changed. You will need to have the following a Channel number (the number you use to select the device in the console), a Universe, and a DMX Address. there are new fields in the Lighting Device for 2020 that will give you some display options you can find more in the Vectorworks help http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/LightingDesign1/Lighting_device_properties.htm?rhhlterm=Lighting Device&rhsyns= You can address fixture in 3 way with the Lighting Instrument tool using Auto numbering http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/LightingDesign1/Inserting_instruments.htm?rhhlterm=Lighting Instrument Tool&rhsyns= Spotlight numbering http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/LightingDesign2/Numbering_light_plot_objects.htm?rhhlterm=Spotlight Numbering command&rhsyns= Or the DMX Patch Window http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/LightingDesign2/DMX_patching.htm?rhhlterm=DMX Patch dialog box&rhsyns= Vision is now using the MVR standard and can not be changed at this time.

    Door Hardware - Frobnt anbd Rear need to be different

    @Steve Boone So, in the Door Settings… you can choose Hardware and you can pick your own hardware. If we don't have it you will need to make a symbol to match what you need, maybe you could get away with editing current symbols @Matt Panzer Do you have a better workflow? The door tool is not my forte

    Simplified truss color

    @scottmoore This is a good trick, have you also tried using an Alpha Mask with the texture?

    Venue With Multiple Setups

    So, I used to have a folder broken out into different files when I did a bunch of work in Washington DC. I would regularly hit 6 Venues, and each had between 3 and 4 normal setups. You might try the same, folder for this event and that event, then subfolders for stage on this wall stage on that wall and so on. Another option it to make a base file, and files for your different setups (things that are always the same) then you can make them reference files and add on the bits that are unique to each event. Past that its Layers and Classes and Saved Views. Hope that helps

    Bridle Diagram > Leg Numbering

    @zeroInf Currently no, but I have entered your request.
  11. @Gaspar Potocnik It's something we are looking into but will require a lot of background work on the current Renderworks camrea.

    Stadium background / crowd

    You can build it out in Vectorworks or you might be able to download one for 3D warehouse. You can open 3Ds files into Vision. Currently Vision does not have this tool

    Brand specific object libraries?

    Try doing a library refresh, it can be found under the settings drop-down.
