    Gobo - Light Ring Spill

    Thanks for your help. Yep was easy enough to blur the texture in Photoshop and have started to create my own library of gobos. Here is my result:

    First I have heard of this, how do I find it? EDIT- Nevermind found it.

    Gobo - Light Ring Spill

    Hello, I have been experimenting with rendering gobo recently. And I seem to get a ring of light spill around the shape of the gobo. Is there a way to fix/get rid of this? Please see the image below to see what I mean. Also, the breakup shapes seem to be really low quality. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks, Ryan
  4. I had a quick search but I couldn't find anything. Is there a function in Vectorworks Spotlight 2017 that allows me to insert a lighting symbol at different lengths? So the length of the symbol is variable? For instance, when I draw LED tape the length is never a set amount. It is normally set to the size of scenery or buildings. Which means there are sometimes over 10 different lengths the symbol can be. Which makes reports and instrument summaries a nightmare. I think it will be really useful if there was a tool in which you could choose the type of LED Tape (For example RGBW @ 8w per meter). And be able to draw the tape live on the plan. Sort of like how the truss tool works but more of a click and drop like system (So you can create curved tape). It would then be useful for this to automatically be a singular lighting symbol and add information to the `Light Info" records. For example standard lantern information such as Unit Numbers, Circuit Numbers, Purposes, Positions. And additionally new information such as automatic Tape lengths, splits, and final wattages calculated from the watts per meter given and the variable length. I think when it comes to the instrument summary it would be useful if there was just one symbol that showed a section of the length. Named for example RGBW LED Tape. At the moment this is possible but the build list is flooded with 10 different lighting symbols for LED Tape. I know you can choose to hide/show symbols in the build list but symbol management would be so much organised. Let me know if this does or does not exist. Hopefully, I haven't been too oblivious. Many Thanks, Ryan Lawrence
