  1. go figure, expected with a new version, but this is a brand new issue I have never seen before.  So I downloaded 2020, and uninstalled 2019....


    Made a simple show file, and sent it to vision, and this happens everytime, no matter what file I use to export.


    So an UNINSTALLED program is crashing... causing me to not be able to launch 2020.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled... but I must be missing something.

  2. I would really like to be able to use a renderworks camera as a source feed on video screen tools.  I have clients that change minds on scenic/staging all the time and its quite an ordeal to have to capture and export an image file, then re import it as a texture then apply it to a screen.


    When a client changes camera locations, scenic etc, I just want to be able to move the camera and have it update my video screens.


    Is that possible?

  3. yeah, i want to use a camera so the perspectives are correct, also clients change camera locations/scenic options all the time, I dont want to have to export a new hi res pdf everytime and turn it into a texture every time a change is made.  Corporate is nothing BUT imag and changes.

  4. Just out of Curiosity, is there an easy way in renderworks to create a camera shot and use it as a texture for a screen image?


    How do most people create IMAG on their screens in renderings.  I want to try and avoid having to create a new resource every time the client wants things to change.

  5. I see what you are doing there, not a bad idea.  But I think BW handles that math a little different.  and I would not confuse the "Force" Number with the point load as its not the same.  As seen here.  Good idea though!  I Likes it.

  6. oh wow, i would have not even thought to change that type of name.  when I imported it and tried to connect to the 10 footers, I needed to just change the connects to stuff, and thus started on a downward spiral... 🙂 Thanks so much.  I also sent some files into the service select portal as well but am yet to hear back.  Thanks so much!

  7. There are no hidden objects that are playing on this simple system.


    I have been playing around with this in my bigger systems as well.  Selecting individual systems they all calculate out, but trying to calculate all (even though the systems do not interact together at all) causes negative weights and all hoists to fail.  


    I was hoping to just see if there was a difference in equations or order of operations in the math between the two calcs.

  8. Thanks a bunch!  that I noticed, the challenge with me is that I need 10 footers to attach to the 6 way, so I had to customize.


    I did end up making a few things work.  I think I may just end up using rigid and doing the old pen and paper until the libraries get updated.



  9. Ok I am just going out on a limb here and say something really odd is in my libraries.  The 6 way in my library (I downloaded the newest one off SS portal) only connects 2 way just like the XSF.  Am I doing something wrong?1394692361_WeirdStuff.thumb.JPG.1a1d0f2b88d4185201fc86027e4eaa1a.JPG


    I used my XSF symbols with the type A christie cross section, then when I put in the 6 way it only keeps going in the initial direction and wont turn a corner.

  10. yeah i totally get that 🙂  Thank you very much.  In the meantime what is your suggestion on what library to use that can give me a simple box with a some sort of a light duty cross section. If I have to I can go rigid and just not get correct numbers for all the influence lines, but I would like to have them if possible.  I can use this product flawlessly with our inventory until I have to put a corner in.  Please help!

  11. So, another XSF question (its our truss inventory) so since XSF does not have a 6 way in their library, I wanted to just use tomcat or something that does have a 6 way and is plated, than just change the cross section.  However I cannot get the XSF to appear in the customize pallet to even see the data to input it myself.  Does anyone know how to add it in or have that data?

  12. When setting an instrument onto the trussing, I attach one with auto attach, then duplicate array for most instruments because I do not like to convert to hanging positions.  I try to keep the rigging and lx plot files in the same file if possible. 


    The problem is that when you duplicate array it dupes the load id and you have to go through and change each instrument manually, is there a way to do this?  or talks to get load ID in the numbering tool?

  13. Has anyone found a way to attach more than just bridles, (hoists specifically etc), onto house rigging points?


    I do a lot of rigging in ballrooms with set rigging points and want to use the auto connect feature from house rigging points, to auto connect hoists to truss.


    basically I just want to not have to adjust all the hook heights once I insert them.


    Any quick workarounds?

  14. you just need to import the symbols as resources into the file, then simply add that file into your favorites.  Pretty simple process.  Just right click and resource in active document.
