  1. Lighting Device 3D Rotation Troubles

    I share files with a freelance LD (who is also on 2018, and we've been on the same SP's when working together) and he has said in files that originate from me, he is unable to 3D rotate a lighting device to be a floor fixture. I simply do the below and it works fine for me. And when he originates a document he can rotate them this way too, but not one from me. Just curious if anyone has any ideas.
  2. This has been interrupting my workflow for almost a year now.
  3. Any C4D users here?

    Evan beat me to it. Also, your screenshot looks like you have the whole object selected. You can also use the tools in my screen shot to select a specific face or part of a face to map a texture on.
  4. Import Titleblock Record Format

    My understanding (and experience) was, say I have a template file where I've made changes to my master title block, I've added some fields for example. re-ordered them etc. If I were to copy that newly updated title block to a file that had an older version of the title block without those fields, and paste it into the document with the older version, the pasted title block's design will update, however, the added/updated fields from the master title block will not carry into the this document. It will retain the old title block's fields. When you paste "Master Title Block" into the document needing updating, there is no records merge/replace dialog prompt, and the error occurs if you do the cut and paste method, OR import the "Master Title Block" style into the drawing that needs to be updated via the resource manager. The net result is the same.
  5. Import Titleblock Record Format

    You sound like your experiencing the same thing I posted about a while back.
  6. Update, geometry updates still fail to render correctly in SP3. IE: Changes are reflected in Open GL, but aren't in FQR. Open GL: (Correct) FQR (Nope): Closing the file and re-opening the file as it was above and hitting cmd + shift + F yields a completely black screen. And of course, re-launching and re-rendering causes it to work as expected. (Until it doesn’t)
  7. 2018 SP3 Bug - Cut & Pasting Dimension Styles

    I'm on a Mac and SP3 and unable to replicate. Could you post a screen record to show the problem? FWIW The "official" bug report channel is here: http://www.vectorworks.net/support/bugsubmit
  8. Best Practices for Installing Plugins

    By default VW puts new plugins in the user plugin folder. That's what I usually use. I then have a program called Resilio sync that syncs my user plugins, workspaces, and a couple of other things from my main Mac Pro to my Macbook Pro for site surveys, so when I make changes to my main machine, install a plugin, change my workspace my laptop automatically has them.
  9. VW 2018 sp3 : slow, hanging, crash

    So, I just tried this. And so far it's working. I gotta be honest though, I am just about sick of resetting my preferences. There has to be a better solution. I've lost count of how many times I've had to do that with 2018.
  10. VW 2018 sp3 : slow, hanging, crash

    Same for me. Constant force-quitting, hangs on the simplest of tasks. More beach balls than spring break.
  11. Tutorial: Elevations and Sections from 3D for Film & TV

    Nice tutorial Evan! I really enjoy seeing others perspectives and solutions to problems. I hope you do more! I'd love to get your take on your VW to C4D workflow, texturing, lighting etc. Funny enough, I was watching JC Superstar Sunday Night and was envisioning the person who modeled/drew that. And of course, you had a hand in it. :-) I also just saw your new renders of it. Those look like they have Corona Renderer all over them and they look awesome! Great work man! Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go practice, or find a new career ;-)
  12. VW 2018: Push-pull tool problems continue

    Most recently I was doing this in a native 2018 file, and push-pull was borderline unusable. Only a small number of my projects end life in a different VW version than they began, so I haven't noticed.
  13. VW 2018: Push-pull tool problems continue

    I keep running into this also. Spinning Beach Ball of Death for days.
  14. Do away with annual NEW releases

    I too wish it was a constant rolling release. Pushing out hotfixes as they are available would be huge! The constant, "This has been fixed for Service Pack X", which loosely translates to "We've fixed the bug, but you won't see it for 3 months" is silly. I think that is half of people's frustration.
