    Plug-in object (door) rendering...

    ..a class ( that I created) that has a glass texture assigned to it. I've tried changing it to the 'glazing/ clear' class, but no difference (class 'glazing -clear' has texture 'Glass Clear RT' assigned to it

    Plug-in object (door) rendering...

    Thanks Tamsin, Image to SP2 now installed. Issue still there (I've re-booted machine etc.) Hi David, The open GL image has black outlines around objects. All the doors are on a 'door' class, windows on a 'window' class; all object atttributes are set 'by class'. All glazing is set to 'class texture' (which is set under 'edit classes/ textures') and the same texture is used for all the doors/ windows that display as expected, and the ones that don't (as far as I can see). I've tried deleting the glass texture and replacing with VW default glass, to no avail. See images attached (outlined image is O-GL); these are newly inserted windows and doors; the top light on the double doors and the window both display as expected in both OGL and FQR; but the vision panels on the doors don't. Maybe a clue there? By changing settings I've managed to make things worse as one door that was ok, now isn't!

    Plug-in object (door) rendering...

    Hi Everyone, I've made a model using door styles. Strange thing, I have a door style that is inserted twice. In 'open gl' the glass in both displays correctly (ie. transparent). However, with 'final quality renderworks' the glazing on one instance is transparent, whilst on the other it is opaque. I've tried deleting the erroneous door and replacing with a new instance, and tried using 'create similar instance' tool. Also tried deleting, closing VW and re-inserting. Even stranger, when I draw a new wall and insert the same door, the glazing is opque in both open gl and final quality renderworks. I'm kind of feeling I've missed something obvious but not sure what it is?! Any thoughts/ advice much appreciated as one door is taking far too much effort! PS - this is using VW2019 (no service packs yet installed)

    VW Gym Equipment (2d/3d symbols)

    Brilliant, thankyou - found it (after an update). Looks good One for VW; Resource Manager folder names could do with a bit of TLC (in my opinion)!

    VW 2019 mTextur import texture

    Yes, the website is excellent so I'm sure it will be good. A logical way to select textures.

    VW 2019 mTextur import texture

    Thanks Mark, good to know. Can I ask which internet browser you're using..?

    VW 2019 mTextur import texture

    I really like the way a link to the mtextur website is integrated into Vectorworks - so you get all the benefits of mtextur's well laid out product browser (try it if you haven't already)! However, I haven't managed to download any textures using it yet. I select the texture I want and then select 'CAD & BIM texture download' icon. Then it freezes and VW crashes. Is this just me or anyone else had success with it (or same issue?) . Is it my system set-up - any ideas?!

    How to import a custom colour palette into VW2019....

    Now for the bad news; the colour palettes show up in the color palette manager, but sadly the custom colours don't display when selected.

    How to import a custom colour palette into VW2019....

    Hi Jim, Thanks for prompt reply...yes, did that but the custom files don't appear. Is there a way of locating the relevant resource files and copying them across? I haven't used migration manager yet - would that make a difference?
  13. Trying to bring a custom colour palette in from VW2018 to VW2019. Have converted the source file to VW2019 but the customAnyone know how to import a custom colour palette doesn't seem to come across. Is this even possible or am I missing something obvious..are these colours managed by the Resource Manager somehow (I think not so?) Thanks in advance for any help!
  14. Thankyou Vectorworks!

    A 'plug' for a plug-in; if you need to create framed artwork or mirrors, just updated and now even easier to use! Baseboard plug-in also worth a look
