  1. I'm not sure what I am doing incorrectly here. I am playing around with the Renderworks Camera Tool with the exposure, bloom, etc settings, and I am not seeing any differences when rendering. Now, I am just in my design layer and using a selection of custom render styles to mess around here. Is there a setting in the render styles that has to be active for the camera effects to be applied? Or do they only work on viewports in sheet layers? Otherwise as I said, I am not seeing any change in my results when adjusting camera settings like exposure and bloom. What I am playing around with is wanting to adjust exposure and bloom so that my spotlight lens glow texture looks like the fixture is actually emitting light as in real life. Then will adjust exposure and spotlight object light brightness to get my renders looking more realistic. This was a suggestion from Jim a while ago I just haven't had time to sit down and play around with it. I feel like I'm missing something. Running 2020 SP2.
  2. I might be splitting hairs on this, but I find it constantly annoying. Alright, let's say I create a cropped viewport on a sheet layer, then I go in to the viewport and move the crop, I would really like Vectorworks to be a bit smarter and keep the viewport crop centered on the sheet layer where it was originally and not make me run after the viewport and move the object back to where it was on the sheet layer. Surely this is feasible?
  3. Are there Release Notes anywhere for what has been changed/fixed in SP5? Can't seem to locate anything.
  4. @JuanPWhatever the issue is it seems tied to Desktop updates, when I turned off my background image slide show in the desktop Theme all issues stopped.
  5. Update, the culprit seems to be the desktop background image slide show. The hiccups were aligned to just after the desktop changed to a new image, disabled the slide show on the desktop and VW seems to be happier. So MS seems to have done something to the backend causing screen processing or refreshing issues or something.
  6. 2019 SP4, seems to be all files so far that I've opened today. Windows has done something in the latest update and VW is not happy with it by the looks of it.
  7. Updated to Windows 10 - 1903 yesterday at the end of the day. Today VW is running rather... unsmoothly…. Every couple of minutes I get a short hangup. Anyone else noticing stability issues or do I need to go monkeying around in my settings to figure out what Microsoft just buggered around with. At first I thought it might have to do with the autosave cycle, so turned that off to see, and made no difference.
  8. @Jim Wilson Thanks Jim, I'll give that a try.
  9. Is there a way to get more brightness out of a glow texture other than increasing the glow intensity, which starts to wash out the colour and turn it white? Right now I use glow textures to re create things like LED tubes, etc, that are in view of audience, and I find they don't get enough "kick" in the renders. If I turn up the brightness setting for the texture it gets brighter for sure, but also starts to desaturate the colour. Thoughts?
  10. Not sure if this helps, but I had a render crank through and then turn black, all I did was nudge the VP over and it refreshed perfectly fine. I've been seeing minor issues with screen refresh of objects that the occasional nudge seems to correct.
  11. Yep, that would do it. I blame 2019 for resetting things. I have never touched that setting before. Thanks Kevin.
  12. Here's a weird thing I'm seeing since moving up to 2019. My symbols are not inserting via the Insertion Point, but rather it seems the very most screen left piece of geometry. Two images below: One shows my symbol if I go in to edit 2d geometry. The table and locus points are centered around the 0,0 coordinates for the symbol, and it lists as insertion point properly. Two shoes me inserting the symbol on to a Design Layer, notice the symbol is being handles by the far left locus, not the 0,0 Insertion Point of the symbol. I'm guessing something is going funky, and that I am not missing a new "Insertion Point" feature where to can manually set the point off of the 0,0 for the symbol?
  13. I am referring to this: When I place the cursor over the fields to input a scale value I get the tooltip note noted at the bottom. It does seem to function, but if I set the values, close the window, and open the window again, the values are "locked in" and greyed out, and I can only adjust them after turning off the auto display and turning it back on.
